New soft-keyboard

I have one question:

How can I select what soft-keyboard an edittext will load?

Answer 1

The user chooses the input method editor (IME). You can configure the IME somewhat via android:imeOptions and android:inputType attributes in your layout XML.

Answer 2

The InputType of the editText determines which keyboard is shown. See Input Type

When I debugged, I saw that getView() of the custom ArrayAdapter is called when the soft-keyboard appears. Then I think the ListView is redrawn everytime the soft-keyboard appears. It's ok, but why do it reverses the order of items?...
