recursiveDefinition example on 7.1.2:

<UIKeyboardImpl: frame = (0 0; 320 216);>
   | <UIKeyboardLayoutStar: frame = (0 0; 320 216);>
   |    | <UIKBBackgroundView: frame = (0 0; 320 216);>
   |    | <UIKBKeyplaneView: frame = (0 0; 320 216);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (1 119; 40 42);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (279 119; 40 42);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (1 173; 38 42);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (41 173; 38 42);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (81 173; 158 42);>
   |    |    | <UIKBKeyView: frame = (241 173; 78 42);>
   |    | <UIKBDimmingView: frame = (0 0; 320 216);>

Accessing the shared instance

Signature + (UIKeyboardImpl *)sharedInstance;
Available in 2.0 –

This method is used to access the shared UIKeyboardImpl instance.

Programmatically inserting text

Signature - (void)addInputString:(NSString *)string;
Available in 2.0 –

You can use this method to insert text into the current text field or text view.[1]


As of iOS 13, this method no longer works. The following code can produce the same result on iOS 13 and later:

__block UIKeyboardImpl *kb = [%c(UIKeyboardImpl) sharedInstance];
UIKeyboardTaskQueue *queue = kb.taskQueue;

[queue addTask:^(UIKeyboardTaskExecutionContext *context, int arg2)
{
	[kb addInputString:insert withFlags:0 executionContext:context];
}];
