Listen to Virtual Keyboard events when within an EditText

 I have confirmed it by making various attempts with this listener, it
will not work for alphabetic inputs from the virtual keyboard on
device. You can use the TextWatcher instead which can serve the
purpose if you dont want to specifically catch the onKeyUp() and
onKeyDown() events. It works pretty fine.

You can try adding the textWatcher using the
addTextChangeListener(textWatcher) on a textView or its subclass

Hope this helps!

2. bindService() does not start the service

a have a activity called , a Serivice name, an AIDL called IAYmsgService.aidl  (which
automatically create and  a java class Called

the only filled with onCreate like this :
public void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
        AYmsg aymsg = new AYmsg(this);

the constructor in AYmsg only called bind Service :

private ServiceConnection mConnection = new ServiceConnection() {
                public void onServiceConnected(ComponentName className, IBinder
                        Log.d(TAG, "Connected");
                        mService = IAYmsgService.Stub.asInterface(service);

                public void onServiceDisconnected(ComponentName className)
                        mService = null;


        public AYmsg(Activity activity)

        activity.bindService(new Intent(IAYmsgService.class.getName()),
mConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE);
                Log.d(TAG, "Starting the service");

I already impelent the onBind(Intent intent) on the
like this:
        public IBinder onBind(Intent intent)
                Log.i(TAG,"AYmsgService: onBind");
                if (IAYmsgService.class.getName().equals(intent.getAction()))
                        return mBinder;
                return null;

but the bindService doesnt start the service.

but if i called it direcly with :

Intent i = new Intent(activity, AYmsgService.class);

the service works fine.

any body know what's seems to be the problem ?

thanx b4.
