    I don't see anything in the Cordoba doc relating to the mobile keyboard.  Is there any way to modify its display in a HTML5/CSS/JS mobile app?  When I give focus to an input field, I've noticed that the keyboard has a large, useless "header" bar above it with left and right arrows that tab between input fields, and a "DONE" button that closes the keyboard.  That header doesn't display in any other applications on my devices, and I would like to be rid of it.  Possible?

    Thank you,

    Hello Kelly,

    In order to work with the iOS native keyboard, you can use the Keyboard plugin. It is one of the core plugins available within AppBuilder and you can easily enable it following the steps described in the Enable and Disable the Core Plugins tutorial.

    The Keyboard plugin provides a hideFormAccessoryBar() method which basically hides the toolbar of the keyboard which I believe is the "header" part you'd like to get rid of. This is why I'd recommend invoking this method in the deviceready event implementation. Please give this approach a try and let us know if it helps.
