    I am working on an app that should have the keypad open at all times. Unfortunately this covers the UITabBar at the bottom of the screen. Rather than require users to collapse the keypad whenever they want to switch tabs, is it possible to either 1) move the keypad up so that it doesn't cover the UITabBar, or 2) move the UITabBar to the top of the screen? Thanks.

    I think you should re-evaluate why the keyboard has to be open at all times. If the user is not typing into a text control why is the keyboard open? And if they are typing into a control why would they want to switch tabs?

    You cannot move the keypad (Edit: you could essentially if you implemented your own keypad...)...but you COULD move the tabbar right above the keypad...but I'd imagine that would leave very little window space...

    It's just like how the SMS and IM programs move the textfield to right above the keyboard when you tap on it.

    Do you have any idea how I would go about doing that?

    How about you tell us what you've tried that has failed?
