There are times when we do not want the EditText component to gain focus and have the input keyboard show up.

What I wanted was the input keyboard to only show up when I tap on the EditText component.

Well, there is a solution to this without using code. Just add the attribute android:focusableInTouchMode=”true” in your layout where the EditText is part of and it won’t show the keyboard whenever the Activity starts.
