Exception or error:

Let say I have the following layout:

enter image description here

when I click on the edit text at the bottom I get this:

As you can notice the image from the top goes upper and the whole layout moves.
This is my xml for this layout:

           android:textColor="@drawable/textblack_selected"
           android:textStyle="bold" />
   </LinearLayout>

</RelativeLayout>

And I have also set this in manifest file for this activity:

android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustPan"

So is there a way to stop my layout from moving when the keyboard is displayed?
Thank you!!!!

How to solve:

well, I have not mentioned any “windowSoftInputMode” in my app’s manifest and it runs fine. Screen does not move up when the keyboard opens up. Try this approach – just remove the “windowSoftInputMode” parameter from your manifest .

###

Try using

android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustPan|adjustResize"

for the activity.

###

My EditText kept moving up as well.

Adding gravity to the Edit Text seems to solve the problem.
The Keyboard was pushing my EditText up, so I added gravity to the bottom of the Edit Text in the XML.

android:gravity=bottom

###

Try this:

android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustNothing"

###

I already had a windowsoftInputMode to prevent the keyboard from opening, so just add the comment code

android:windowSoftInputMode=”stateHidden|adjustPan|adjustResize”

###

Try this, for me it worked…

<CoordinatorLayout
android:fitsSystemWindows="true">
<AppBarLayout>
    <Toobar>
        <!--...-->
    </Toobar>
</AppBarLayout>
<include layout="@layout/content_main_message" /> <!--EditText here-->
</CoordinatorLayout>
