Measure the height of keyboard on PhoneGap app using jQuery


 I have been working on a PhoneGap project where I wanted  to scroll the content up and down whenever keyboard  appears and disappears.

 After a bit of searching here and there, I found out that  whenever keyboard appears window's resize event if fired.

 So to determine height of keyboard do the following steps

 1. Inside device ready event store original window height  inside a window variable

 window.height = $(window).height();


2. Now on window resize event execute a callback function

 $(window).resize(function(){
    window.currentHeight = $(this).height();
    window.heightDiff = window.height - window.currentHeight;
 });


So whenever there is focus on an input element, window's resize event will be triggered which will execute above function and we will have the height of keyboard inside window.heightDiff variable.

Putting it all together
 function onDeviceReady() {
   window.height = $(window).height();
   $(window).resize(function(){
    window.currentHeight = $(this).height();
    window.heightDiff = window.height - window.currentHeight;
  });
 }
