How to dismiss the keyboard from a UITextField in iOS
In this screencast I’ll show you how to dismiss the iOS Keyboard, which is commonly brought up by a UITextField – but doesn’t want to leave easy once summoned.
It’s easy to overlook a step in this procedure, so I thought a screencast is in order. We’re discussing two dismissal options here:
- when the DONE button is pressed
- and when users tap outside the textfield
The latter option isn’t built into iOS, but users have come to rely on this behaviour. I’m using Xcode 5.1.1 and iOS 7.1 in this demo.
