In React Native WebView, you can control the keyboard settings such as auto-correct and capitalization for the WebView and the whole app by using the Keyboard component and the KeyboardAvoidingView component provided by React Native.

  1. Control Keyboard Settings for WebView: You can control the keyboard settings specifically for the WebView by using the Keyboard component. The Keyboard component allows you to show or hide the keyboard and control keyboard-related settings.
jsx
import React, { useState } from 'react'; import { View, WebView, TextInput, Keyboard } from 'react-native'; const WebViewScreen = () => { const [keyboardSettings, setKeyboardSettings] = useState({ autoCorrect: true, autoCapitalize: 'sentences', // 'none', 'sentences', 'words', or 'characters' }); return ( <View style={{ flex: 1 }}> <WebView source={{ uri: 'https://example.com' }} keyboardDisplayRequiresUserAction={false} // To automatically display the keyboard without user interaction /> <TextInput autoCorrect={keyboardSettings.autoCorrect} autoCapitalize={keyboardSettings.autoCapitalize} onChangeText={(text) => {}} /> </View> ); }; export default WebViewScreen;
  1. Control Keyboard Settings for the Whole App: If you want to control the keyboard settings for the whole app, you can use the KeyboardAvoidingView component. The KeyboardAvoidingView component automatically adjusts its height when the keyboard appears, allowing you to control how the components respond to the keyboard.
jsx
import React from 'react'; import { View, WebView, TextInput, KeyboardAvoidingView, Platform } from 'react-native'; const WebViewScreen = () => { return ( <KeyboardAvoidingView style={{ flex: 1 }} behavior={Platform.OS === 'ios' ? 'padding' : 'height'} > <View style={{ flex: 1 }}> <WebView source={{ uri: 'https://example.com' }} keyboardDisplayRequiresUserAction={false} // To automatically display the keyboard without user interaction /> <TextInput autoCorrect={true} autoCapitalize="sentences" onChangeText={(text) => {}} /> </View> </KeyboardAvoidingView> ); }; export default WebViewScreen;

In the above example, the KeyboardAvoidingView component is used to wrap the content of the screen. The behavior prop specifies how the view should adjust itself when the keyboard appears. For iOS, padding behavior is used, which adjusts the padding at the bottom of the view when the keyboard appears. For Android, height behavior is used, which adjusts the height of the view when the keyboard appears.

By using the Keyboard and KeyboardAvoidingView components, you can control keyboard settings for the WebView and the whole app in your React Native application. Remember to import the necessary components from react-native before using them.
