Hello Op Gupta,
as before this question already disscussed you can find answers at this link 

As you know, providing a seamless user experience is paramount in the development of any application. Incorporating the Keyboard Search Button can greatly enhance the usability and convenience for users when searching for specific content within the app.

To enable the Keyboard Search Button functionality in Android, you can follow these steps:

  1. Add the "android:inputType" attribute to the EditText widget in your XML layout file. Set the inputType attribute to "text" or "textVisiblePassword" to display the search icon on the keyboard.

 

 

<EditText android:id="@+id/searchEditText" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:hint="Search" android:inputType="text" />

  1. Implement the appropriate action for the search operation in your Activity or Fragment. This can be done by setting an OnEditorActionListener to the EditText widget and check for the IME_ACTION_SEARCH action.

 

EditText searchEditText = findViewById(R.id.searchEditText); searchEditText.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() { @Override public boolean onEditorAction(TextView textView, int actionId, KeyEvent event) { if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_SEARCH) { // Perform the search operation here performSearch(textView.getText().toString()); return true; } return false; } });

  1. Customize the search behavior according to your app's requirements by handling the search query appropriately.

Please note that the exact implementation might vary depending on your application's architecture and requirements, but the provided steps should give you a good starting point to integrate the Keyboard Search Button functionality effectively.

If you encounter any issues or have further questions regarding this implementation or any other aspect of Android development, please don't hesitate to ask. Our team is more than willing to assist you and ensure the successful implementation of this feature in your application.
