- Android devices
- Cellular enabled iPad
Depending on the keyboard used on the iPhone, cellular enabled iPad, or Android device, as well as the size of the device's display, the area of the screen used to display the conversation could be small. This can be addressed by using the Show Action Bar with Keyboard setting in BBM.
The action bar displays the Back, Invite More, Attach, Send, and Menu buttons. With the Show Action Bar with Keyboard setting set to On the action bar is hidden while the keyboard is displayed on the screen. In this configuration, the action bar can still be accessed by tapping above the keyboard, in the conversation view for example, which will minimize the keyboard. To access the keyboard again, simply click in the text entry field.
To hide the action bar when the keyboard is displayed, use the following steps:
- Open BBM.
- Tap the action menu button (3 vertical dots).
- Tap Settings.
- Set the Show Action Bar With Keyboard switch to Off.
