[Ios] How can I make a UITextField move up when the keyboard is present?


Answers

I was also having a lot of issue with a UIScrollView composing of multiple UITextFields, of which, one or more of them would get obscured by the keyboard when they are being edited.

Here are some things to consider if your UIScrollView is not properly scrolling.

1) Ensure that your contentSize is greater than the UIScrollView frame size. The way to understand UIScrollViews is that the UIScrollView is like a viewing window on the content defined in the contentSize. So when in order for the UIScrollview to scroll anywhere, the contentSize must be greater than the UIScrollView. Else, there is no scrolling required as everything defined in the contentSize is already visible. BTW, default contentSize = CGSizeZero.

2) Now that you understand that the UIScrollView is really a window into your "content", the way to ensure that the keyboard is not obscuring your UIScrollView's viewing "window" would be to resize the UIScrollView so that when the keyboard is present, you have the UIScrollView window sized to just the original UIScrollView frame.size.height minus the height of the keyboard. This will ensure that your window is only that small viewable area.

3) Here's the catch: When I first implemented this I figured I would have to get the CGRect of the edited textfield and call UIScrollView's scrollRecToVisible method. I implemented the UITextFieldDelegate method textFieldDidBeginEditing with the call to the scrollRecToVisible method. This actually worked with a strange side effect that the scrolling would snap the UITextField into position. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what it was. Then I commented out the textFieldDidBeginEditing Delegate method and it all work!!(???). As it turned out, I believe the UIScrollView actually implicitly brings the currently edited UITextField into the viewable window implicitly. My implementation of the UITextFieldDelegate method and subsequent call to the scrollRecToVisible was redundant and was the cause of the strange side effect.

So here are the steps to properly scroll your UITextField in a UIScrollView into place when the keyboard appears.

// Implement viewDidLoad to do additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

- (void)viewDidLoad 
{
    [super viewDidLoad];

    // register for keyboard notifications
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self 
                                             selector:@selector(keyboardWillShow:) 
                                                 name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification 
                                               object:self.view.window];
    // register for keyboard notifications
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self 
                                             selector:@selector(keyboardWillHide:) 
                                                 name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification 
                                               object:self.view.window];
    keyboardIsShown = NO;
    //make contentSize bigger than your scrollSize (you will need to figure out for your own use case)
    CGSize scrollContentSize = CGSizeMake(320, 345);
    self.scrollView.contentSize = scrollContentSize;
}

- (void)keyboardWillHide:(NSNotification *)n
{
    NSDictionary* userInfo = [n userInfo];

    // get the size of the keyboard
    CGSize keyboardSize = [[userInfo objectForKey:UIKeyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] CGRectValue].size;


    // resize the scrollview
    CGRect viewFrame = self.scrollView.frame;
    // I'm also subtracting a constant kTabBarHeight because my UIScrollView was offset by the UITabBar so really only the portion of the keyboard that is leftover pass the UITabBar is obscuring my UIScrollView.
    viewFrame.size.height += (keyboardSize.height - kTabBarHeight);

    [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState:YES];
    [self.scrollView setFrame:viewFrame];
    [UIView commitAnimations];

    keyboardIsShown = NO;
}

- (void)keyboardWillShow:(NSNotification *)n
{
    // This is an ivar I'm using to ensure that we do not do the frame size adjustment on the `UIScrollView` if the keyboard is already shown.  This can happen if the user, after fixing editing a `UITextField`, scrolls the resized `UIScrollView` to another `UITextField` and attempts to edit the next `UITextField`.  If we were to resize the `UIScrollView` again, it would be disastrous.  NOTE: The keyboard notification will fire even when the keyboard is already shown.
    if (keyboardIsShown) {
        return;
    }

    NSDictionary* userInfo = [n userInfo];

    // get the size of the keyboard
    CGSize keyboardSize = [[userInfo objectForKey:UIKeyboardFrameEndUserInfoKey] CGRectValue].size;

    // resize the noteView
    CGRect viewFrame = self.scrollView.frame;
    // I'm also subtracting a constant kTabBarHeight because my UIScrollView was offset by the UITabBar so really only the portion of the keyboard that is leftover pass the UITabBar is obscuring my UIScrollView.
    viewFrame.size.height -= (keyboardSize.height - kTabBarHeight);

    [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState:YES];
    [self.scrollView setFrame:viewFrame];
    [UIView commitAnimations];
    keyboardIsShown = YES;
}
  1. Register for the keyboard notifications at viewDidLoad
  2. Unregister for the keyboard nofitications at viewDidUnload
  3. Ensure that the contentSize is set and greater than your UIScrollView at viewDidLoad
  4. Shrink the UIScrollView when the keyboard is present
  5. Revert back the UIScrollView when the keyboard goes away.
  6. Use an ivar to detect if the keyboard is already shown on the screen since the keyboard notifications are sent each time a UITextField is tabbed even if the keyboard is already present to avoid shrinking the UIScrollView when it's already shrunk

One thing to note is that the UIKeyboardWillShowNotification will fire even when the keyboard is already on the screen when you tab on another UITextField. I took care of this by using an ivar to avoid resizing the UIScrollView when the keyboard is already on the screen. Inadvertently resizing the UIScrollView when the keyboard is already there would be disastrous!

Hope this code saves some of you a lot of headache.

Question

With the iOS SDK:

I have a UIView with UITextFields that bring up a keyboard. I need it to be able to:

  1. Allow scrolling of the contents of the UIScrollView to see the other text fields once the keyboard is brought up

  2. Automatically "jump" (by scrolling up) or shortening

I know that I need a UIScrollView. I've tried changing the class of my UIView to a UIScrollView but I'm still unable to scroll the textboxes up or down.

Do I need both a UIView and a UIScrollView? Does one go inside the other?

What needs to be implemented in order to automatically scroll to the active text field?

Ideally as much of the setup of the components as possible will be done in Interface Builder. I'd like to only write code for what needs it.

Note: the UIView (or UIScrollView) that I'm working with is brought up by a tabbar (UITabBar), which needs to function as normal.


Edit: I am adding the scroll bar just for when the keyboard comes up. Even though it's not needed, I feel like it provides a better interface because then the user can scroll and change textboxes, for example.

I've got it working where I change the frame size of the UIScrollView when the keyboard goes up and down. I'm simply using:

-(void)textFieldDidBeginEditing:(UITextField *)textField { 
    //Keyboard becomes visible
    scrollView.frame = CGRectMake(scrollView.frame.origin.x, 
                     scrollView.frame.origin.y, 
scrollView.frame.size.width,
scrollView.frame.size.height - 215 + 50);   //resize
}

-(void)textFieldDidEndEditing:(UITextField *)textField {
   //keyboard will hide
    scrollView.frame = CGRectMake(scrollView.frame.origin.x, 
       scrollView.frame.origin.y, 
     scrollView.frame.size.width,
      scrollView.frame.size.height + 215 - 50); //resize
}

However, this doesn't automatically "move up" or center the lower text fields in the visible area, which is what I would really like.




As per the docs, as of iOS 3.0, the UITableViewController class automatically resizes and repositions its table view when there is in-line editing of text fields. I think it's not sufficient to put the text field inside a UITableViewCell as some have indicated.

From the docs:

A table view controller supports inline editing of table view rows; if, for example, rows have embedded text fields in editing mode, it scrolls the row being edited above the virtual keyboard that is displayed.




@user271753

To get your view back to original add:

-(BOOL)textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField{
   [textField resignFirstResponder];
   [self setViewMovedUp:NO];
   return YES;
}



Shiun said "As it turned out, I believe the UIScrollView actually implicitly brings the currently edited UITextField into the viewable window implicitly" This seems to be true for iOS 3.1.3, but not 3.2, 4.0, or 4.1. I had to add an explicit scrollRectToVisible in order to make the UITextField visible on iOS >= 3.2.




Try this:

-(void)textFieldDidBeginEditing:(UITextField *)sender
{
    if ([sender isEqual:self.m_Sp_Contact])
    {
        [self.m_Scroller setContentOffset:CGPointMake(0, 105)animated:YES];          
    }
}



This is the solution using Swift.

import UIKit

class ExampleViewController: UIViewController, UITextFieldDelegate {

    @IBOutlet var scrollView: UIScrollView!

    @IBOutlet var textField1: UITextField!
    @IBOutlet var textField2: UITextField!
    @IBOutlet var textField3: UITextField!
    @IBOutlet var textField4: UITextField!
    @IBOutlet var textField5: UITextField!

    var activeTextField: UITextField!

    // MARK: - View
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.textField1.delegate = self
        self.textField2.delegate = self
        self.textField3.delegate = self
        self.textField4.delegate = self
        self.textField5.delegate = self
    }

    override func viewWillAppear(animated: Bool) {
        super.viewWillAppear(animated)
        self.registerForKeyboardNotifications()
    }

    override func viewWillDisappear(animated: Bool) {
        super.viewWillDisappear(animated)
        self.unregisterFromKeyboardNotifications()
    }

    // MARK: - Keyboard

    // Call this method somewhere in your view controller setup code.
    func registerForKeyboardNotifications() {
        let center:  NSNotificationCenter = NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter()
        center.addObserver(self, selector: "keyboardWasShown:", name: UIKeyboardDidShowNotification, object: nil)
        center.addObserver(self, selector: "keyboardWillBeHidden:", name: UIKeyboardWillHideNotification, object: nil)
    }

    func unregisterFromKeyboardNotifications () {
        let center:  NSNotificationCenter = NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter()
        center.removeObserver(self, name: UIKeyboardDidShowNotification, object: nil)
        center.removeObserver(self, name: UIKeyboardWillHideNotification, object: nil)
    }

    // Called when the UIKeyboardDidShowNotification is sent.
    func keyboardWasShown (notification: NSNotification) {
        let info : NSDictionary = notification.userInfo!
        let kbSize = (info.objectForKey(UIKeyboardFrameBeginUserInfoKey)?.CGRectValue() as CGRect!).size

        let contentInsets: UIEdgeInsets = UIEdgeInsetsMake(0.0, 0.0, kbSize.height, 0.0);
        scrollView.contentInset = contentInsets;
        scrollView.scrollIndicatorInsets = contentInsets;

        // If active text field is hidden by keyboard, scroll it so it's visible
        // Your app might not need or want this behavior.
        var aRect = self.view.frame
        aRect.size.height -= kbSize.height;
        if (!CGRectContainsPoint(aRect, self.activeTextField.frame.origin) ) {
            self.scrollView.scrollRectToVisible(self.activeTextField.frame, animated: true)
        }
    }

    // Called when the UIKeyboardWillHideNotification is sent
    func keyboardWillBeHidden (notification: NSNotification) {
        let contentInsets = UIEdgeInsetsZero;
        scrollView.contentInset = contentInsets;
        scrollView.scrollIndicatorInsets = contentInsets;
    }

    // MARK: -  Text Field

    func textFieldDidBeginEditing(textField: UITextField) {
        self.activeTextField = textField
    }

    func textFieldDidEndEditing(textField: UITextField) {
        self.activeTextField = nil
    }

}



There so many solutions, but I've spend some hours before it start works. So, I put this code here (just paste to the project, any modifications needn't):

@interface RegistrationViewController : UIViewController <UITextFieldDelegate>{
    UITextField* activeField;
    UIScrollView *scrollView;
}
@end

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
    [super viewDidLoad];

    scrollView = [[UIScrollView alloc] initWithFrame:self.view.frame];

    //scrool view must be under main view - swap it
    UIView* natView = self.view;
    [self setView:scrollView];
    [self.view addSubview:natView];

    CGSize scrollViewContentSize = self.view.frame.size;
    [scrollView setContentSize:scrollViewContentSize];

    [self registerForKeyboardNotifications];
}

- (void)viewDidUnload {
    activeField = nil;
    scrollView = nil;
    [self unregisterForKeyboardNotifications];
    [super viewDidUnload];
}

- (void)registerForKeyboardNotifications
{
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self
                                             selector:@selector(keyboardWillShown:)
                                                 name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification object:nil];

    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self
                                             selector:@selector(keyboardWillBeHidden:)
                                                 name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification object:nil];

}

-(void)unregisterForKeyboardNotifications
{
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] removeObserver:self
                                                    name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification
                                                  object:nil];
    // unregister for keyboard notifications while not visible.
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] removeObserver:self
                                                    name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification
                                                  object:nil];
}

- (void)keyboardWillShown:(NSNotification*)aNotification
{
    NSDictionary* info = [aNotification userInfo];
    CGSize kbSize = [[info objectForKey:UIKeyboardFrameBeginUserInfoKey] CGRectValue].size;

    CGRect frame = self.view.frame;
    frame.size.height -= kbSize.height;
    CGPoint fOrigin = activeField.frame.origin;
    fOrigin.y -= scrollView.contentOffset.y;
    fOrigin.y += activeField.frame.size.height;
    if (!CGRectContainsPoint(frame, fOrigin) ) {
        CGPoint scrollPoint = CGPointMake(0.0, activeField.frame.origin.y + activeField.frame.size.height - frame.size.height);
        [scrollView setContentOffset:scrollPoint animated:YES];
    }
}

- (void)keyboardWillBeHidden:(NSNotification*)aNotification
{
     [scrollView setContentOffset:CGPointZero animated:YES];
}

- (void)textFieldDidBeginEditing:(UITextField *)textField
{
    activeField = textField;
}

- (void)textFieldDidEndEditing:(UITextField *)textField
{
    activeField = nil;
}

-(BOOL) textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField
{
    [textField resignFirstResponder];
    return YES;
}

P.S: I hope the code help somebody make desired effect quickly. (Xcode 4.5)




One thing to consider is whether you ever want to use a UITextField on its own. I haven’t come across any well-designed iPhone apps that actually use UITextFields outside of UITableViewCells.

It will be some extra work, but I recommend you implement all data entry views a table views. Add a UITextView to your UITableViewCells.




Little fix that works for many UITextFields

#pragma mark UIKeyboard handling

#define kMin 150

-(void)textFieldDidBeginEditing:(UITextField *)sender
{
   if (currTextField) {
      [currTextField release];
   }
   currTextField = [sender retain];
   //move the main view, so that the keyboard does not hide it.
   if (self.view.frame.origin.y + currTextField.frame.origin. y >= kMin) {
        [self setViewMovedUp:YES]; 
   }
}



//method to move the view up/down whenever the keyboard is shown/dismissed
-(void)setViewMovedUp:(BOOL)movedUp
{
   [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
   [UIView setAnimationDuration:0.3]; // if you want to slide up the view

   CGRect rect = self.view.frame;
   if (movedUp)
   {
      // 1. move the view's origin up so that the text field that will be hidden come above the keyboard 
      // 2. increase the size of the view so that the area behind the keyboard is covered up.
      rect.origin.y = kMin - currTextField.frame.origin.y ;
   }
   else
   {
      // revert back to the normal state.
      rect.origin.y = 0;
   }
   self.view.frame = rect;

   [UIView commitAnimations];
}


- (void)keyboardWillShow:(NSNotification *)notif
{
   //keyboard will be shown now. depending for which textfield is active, move up or move down the view appropriately

   if ([currTextField isFirstResponder] && currTextField.frame.origin.y + self.view.frame.origin.y >= kMin)
   {
      [self setViewMovedUp:YES];
   }
   else if (![currTextField isFirstResponder] && currTextField.frame.origin.y  + self.view.frame.origin.y < kMin)
   {
      [self setViewMovedUp:NO];
   }
}

- (void)keyboardWillHide:(NSNotification *)notif
{
   //keyboard will be shown now. depending for which textfield is active, move up or move down the view appropriately
   if (self.view.frame.origin.y < 0 ) {
      [self setViewMovedUp:NO];
   }

}


- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
{
   // register for keyboard notifications
   [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(keyboardWillShow:) 
                                                name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification object:self.view.window]; 
   [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(keyboardWillHide:) 
                                                name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification object:self.view.window]; 
}

- (void)viewWillDisappear:(BOOL)animated
{
   // unregister for keyboard notifications while not visible.
   [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] removeObserver:self name:UIKeyboardWillShowNotification object:nil]; 
}



I'm not sure if moving the view up is the correct approach, I did it in a differente way, resizing the UIScrollView. I explained it in details on a little article




Use this third party you don't need to write even one line

https://github.com/hackiftekhar/IQKeyboardManager

download project and drag and drop IQKeyboardManager in your project. If you find any issue please read README document.

Guys really its remove headache to manage keyboard ..

Thanks and best of luck!




Here I found the simplest solution to handle keypad.

You need to just copy-paste below sample code and change your textfield or any view which you want to move up.

Step-1

Just copy-paste below two method in your controller

- (void)registerForKeyboardNotifications
{
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(keyboardWasShown:)
                                                 name:UIKeyboardDidShowNotification object:nil];
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(keyboardWillBeHidden:)
                                                 name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification object:nil];
}

- (void)deregisterFromKeyboardNotifications
{
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] removeObserver:self name:UIKeyboardDidHideNotification object:nil];
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] removeObserver:self name:UIKeyboardWillHideNotification object:nil];
}

Step-2

register & deregister Keypad Notifications in viewWillAppear and viewWillDisappear methods respectively.

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
{
    [super viewWillAppear:animated];
    [self registerForKeyboardNotifications];
}

- (void)viewWillDisappear:(BOOL)animated
{
    [self deregisterFromKeyboardNotifications];
    [super viewWillDisappear:animated];
}

Step-3

Here comes the soul part, Just replace your textfield, and change height how much you want to move upside.

- (void)keyboardWasShown:(NSNotification *)notification
{
    NSDictionary* info = [notification userInfo];
    CGSize currentKeyboardSize = [[info objectForKey:UIKeyboardFrameBeginUserInfoKey] CGRectValue].size;

    //you need replace your textfield instance here
    CGPoint textFieldOrigin = self.tokenForPlaceField.frame.origin;
    CGFloat textFieldHeight = self.tokenForPlaceField.frame.size.height;

    CGRect visibleRect = self.view.frame;
    visibleRect.size.height -= currentKeyboardSize.height;

    if (!CGRectContainsPoint(visibleRect, textFieldOrigin))
    {
        //you can add yor desired height how much you want move keypad up, by replacing "textFieldHeight" below

        CGPoint scrollPoint = CGPointMake(0.0, textFieldOrigin.y - visibleRect.size.height  + textFieldHeight); //replace textFieldHeight to currentKeyboardSize.height, if you want to move up with more height
        [self.scrollView setContentOffset:scrollPoint animated:YES];
    }
}

- (void)keyboardWillBeHidden:(NSNotification *)notification
{
    [self.scrollView setContentOffset:CGPointZero animated:YES];
}

Reference: well, Please appreciate this guy, who shared this beautiful code snip, clean solution.

Hope this would be surly helpful someone out there.




For Swift Programmers :

This will do everything for you, just put these in your view controller class and implement the UITextFieldDelegate to your view controller & set the textField's delegate to self

textField.delegate = self // Setting delegate of your UITextField to self

Implement the delegate callback methods:

func textFieldDidBeginEditing(textField: UITextField) {
    animateViewMoving(true, moveValue: 100)
}

func textFieldDidEndEditing(textField: UITextField) {
    animateViewMoving(false, moveValue: 100)
}

// Lifting the view up
func animateViewMoving (up:Bool, moveValue :CGFloat){
    let movementDuration:NSTimeInterval = 0.3
    let movement:CGFloat = ( up ? -moveValue : moveValue)
    UIView.beginAnimations( "animateView", context: nil)
    UIView.setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState(true)
    UIView.setAnimationDuration(movementDuration )
    self.view.frame = CGRectOffset(self.view.frame, 0,  movement)
    UIView.commitAnimations()
}



In textFieldDidBeginEditting and in textFieldDidEndEditing call the function [self animateTextField:textField up:YES] like so:

-(void)textFieldDidBeginEditing:(UITextField *)textField 
{ 
    [self animateTextField:textField up:YES]; 
}

- (void)textFieldDidEndEditing:(UITextField *)textField
{
    [self animateTextField:textField up:NO];
}

-(void)animateTextField:(UITextField*)textField up:(BOOL)up
{
    const int movementDistance = -130; // tweak as needed
    const float movementDuration = 0.3f; // tweak as needed

    int movement = (up ? movementDistance : -movementDistance); 

    [UIView beginAnimations: @"animateTextField" context: nil];
    [UIView setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState: YES];
    [UIView setAnimationDuration: movementDuration];
    self.view.frame = CGRectOffset(self.view.frame, 0, movement);
    [UIView commitAnimations];
}

I hope this code will help you.

In Swift 2

func animateTextField(textField: UITextField, up: Bool) 
{
     let movementDistance:CGFloat = -130
     let movementDuration: Double = 0.3

     var movement:CGFloat = 0
     if up 
     {
         movement = movementDistance
     }
     else 
     {
         movement = -movementDistance
     }
     UIView.beginAnimations("animateTextField", context: nil)
     UIView.setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState(true)
     UIView.setAnimationDuration(movementDuration)
     self.view.frame = CGRectOffset(self.view.frame, 0, movement)
     UIView.commitAnimations()
}


func textFieldDidBeginEditing(textField: UITextField) 
{
    self.animateTextField(textField, up:true)
}

func textFieldDidEndEditing(textField: UITextField) 
{
    self.animateTextField(textField, up:false)
}

SWIFT 3

 func animateTextField(textField: UITextField, up: Bool)
    {
        let movementDistance:CGFloat = -130
        let movementDuration: Double = 0.3

        var movement:CGFloat = 0
        if up
        {
            movement = movementDistance
        }
        else
        {
            movement = -movementDistance
        }
        UIView.beginAnimations("animateTextField", context: nil)
        UIView.setAnimationBeginsFromCurrentState(true)
        UIView.setAnimationDuration(movementDuration)
        self.view.frame = self.view.frame.offsetBy(dx: 0, dy: movement)
        UIView.commitAnimations()
    }


    func textFieldDidBeginEditing(textField: UITextField)
    {
        self.animateTextField(textField: textField, up:true)
    }

    func textFieldDidEndEditing(textField: UITextField)
    {
        self.animateTextField(textField: textField, up:false)
    }



For Universal Solution, Here was my approach for implementing IQKeyboardManager.

Step1:- I Added global notifications of UITextField, UITextView, and UIKeyboard in a singleton class. I call it IQKeyboardManager.

Step2:- If found UIKeyboardWillShowNotification, UITextFieldTextDidBeginEditingNotification or UITextViewTextDidBeginEditingNotification notifications, I try to get topMostViewController instance from the UIWindow.rootViewController hierarchy. In order to properly uncover UITextField/UITextView on it, topMostViewController.view's frame needs to be adjusted.

Step3:- I calculated expected move distance of topMostViewController.view with respect to first responded UITextField/UITextView.

Step4:- I moved topMostViewController.view.frame up/down according to the expected move distance.

Step5:- If found UIKeyboardWillHideNotification, UITextFieldTextDidEndEditingNotification or UITextViewTextDidEndEditingNotification notification, I again try to get topMostViewController instance from the UIWindow.rootViewController hierarchy.

Step6:- I calculated disturbed distance of topMostViewController.view which needs to be restored to it's original position.

Step7:- I restored topMostViewController.view.frame down according to the disturbed distance.

Step8:- I instantiated singleton IQKeyboardManager class instance on app load, so every UITextField/UITextView in the app will adjust automatically according to the expected move distance.

That's all IQKeyboardManager do for you with NO LINE OF CODE really!! only need to drag and drop related source file to project. IQKeyboardManager also support Device Orientation, Automatic UIToolbar Management, KeybkeyboardDistanceFromTextField and much more than you think.
