Android Disable EditText from Auto Focus on Activity load



You may have noticed that when you have an EditText or ListView in your Activity, and when that activity is brought in front, the EditText is always in Focus, ie the Keyboard is always popped up.

By default the first EditText you add to the layout.xml will have at tag <requestFocus /> tag in it, even if you remove it , the EditText remains in focus.

There are lot many ways you can achieve this, but the very best and simplest way is to add android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysHidden" in the activity tag of the Manifest.xml file. When you add this attribute to the Activity , the keyboard to be always hidden when the activity loads and when you click on the TextEdit the keyboard gets into focus.
