I noticed that apps like google maps and lyft have a feature/behavior that when the user starts typing an address into a textfield, the text field takes the entire screen (starts a new activity) with a specific focus on the input. When the user selects something from the listview, they are taking back to the screen with all the other info
I'm just curious as to how something like that could be achieved. Are they using a different activity?
The app that I am working on has a similar feature but I guess am not sure how to get my textfield to cover the entire screen (or perhaps start a different activity) when user starts typing.
I am just looking for a pointer or an example. Unfortunately because I don't know the exact name of what I am looking it makes searching for it in the docs a bit hard. Any pointers would be appreciated!
PS: I am aware of this approach but that is not what I am looking for
<activity android:name=".MyActivity" android:windowSoftInputMode=""/>
