Android code for close keypad in editText

how to close keypad in android apps
how to hide keyboard in android after use of editText

I used a editText for input number and i assigned editText to editbox1 variable ie

editbox1 = (EditText) findViewById(;

For Closing or hiding keypad in android used InputMethodManager

add following code for close keyboard in android

//To hide key board
InputMethodManager MyKeboard = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
MyKeboard.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editbox1.getWindowToken(), 0);

Here "MyKeboard" is variable and "editbox1" is name of editText.

For using above code, we have to import following header file

import android.view.inputmethod.InputMethodManager;
