Automagic keyboard is to be used with Control UI, especially sendKey(). It is invisible. After you have changed the keyboard to Automagic, add another action Control UI

Code: Select all

sendKey("SEARCH");
sleep(100);
sendKey("ENTER");
Pay attention to the sleep, try and error, as it might affect the result.

Most of our automation will require to change the keyboard to automagic, do the control UI script, then changed back to default keyboard. You need root or at least write secure permission from adb to use the change keyboard action automatically.
