Enable hardware keyboard on Android emulator

Publié dans Java | Marqué avec ,

I thought it was possible in previous version, but it appears that now it is not possible to use the physical hardware keyboard of a computer in an Android emulator… Hopefully, this is just a small configuration to edit!

  • Open the AVD Manager: in Eclipse > AVD Manager
  • Select the particular AVD, or create a new one, and click on Edit
  • Go to the « Hardware » section, click on « New ».
  • Select the Property: « Keyboard Support », and change its value to « yes » (it is « no » by default)
  • That’s it! You can start your emulator and use your physical keyboard.
