yarn add react-native-keyboard-manager

Auto linking

If you are using

React Native 0.60.+
go to the folder your-project/ios and run
pod install
, and you're done.

If not, use one of the following methods to link.

Link with
react-native link

  1. Link the native project

    react-native link react-native-keyboard-manager
  2. (Optional) If you want to use Next/Previous buttons, link the IQKeyboardManager resources to your Xcode project.

    1. Open your Xcode project
    2. Got to folder your-project/node_modules/react-native-keyboard-manager/ios/IQKeyboardManager/
    3. Drag and drop the Resources folder to your project root. (If you already have Resources group, drag and drop the IQKeyboardManager.bundle)

    4. In your

      if (Platform.OS === 'ios') {

Link with cocoapods:

  1. Add this line to your Podfile

    pod 'ReactNativeKeyboardManager', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-keyboard-manager'
  2. run

    pod install


It does not need any library setup to work, just install and go.

But, if you need some configuration, there are some options available. (with default values)

import { Platform } from 'react-native';
import KeyboardManager from 'react-native-keyboard-manager';

if (Platform.OS === 'ios') { KeyboardManager.setEnable(true); KeyboardManager.setEnableDebugging(false); KeyboardManager.setKeyboardDistanceFromTextField(10); KeyboardManager.setPreventShowingBottomBlankSpace(true); KeyboardManager.setEnableAutoToolbar(true); KeyboardManager.setToolbarDoneBarButtonItemText("Done"); KeyboardManager.setToolbarManageBehaviour(0); KeyboardManager.setToolbarPreviousNextButtonEnable(false); KeyboardManager.setShouldToolbarUsesTextFieldTintColor(false); KeyboardManager.setShouldShowTextFieldPlaceholder(true); // deprecated, use setShouldShowToolbarPlaceholder KeyboardManager.setShouldShowToolbarPlaceholder(true); KeyboardManager.setOverrideKeyboardAppearance(false); KeyboardManager.setShouldResignOnTouchOutside(true); KeyboardManager.resignFirstResponder(); KeyboardManager.isKeyboardShowing() .then((isShowing) => { // ... }); }

Enable Next/Previous buttons

If you want to use Next/Previous buttons, enable it.

If you linked using

react-native link
, make sure you linked the resource file.
if (Platform.OS === 'ios') {

And if you want to use Next/Previous buttons inside a

, you need to wrap the fields in a
class App extends Component {
  render() {
      return (
              // others views
                  // others views
                      // all TextInput
