This answer is, in my view, an "I have this problem too" post, but my flag as "Not an answer" was declined.
The text of the answer is:
I also have this problem with Samsung galaxy Tab 2 (with Samsung keyboard). In fullscreen mode (after GridView.setAdapter()) it cause nasty bug - activity slightly dragging to bottom on start. I added textNoSuggestions to editBox but it doesn't help. Then i add to manifest android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden" and it works, but only for start case. If i will run next activity from that and go back - bug reappears. Layout:
followed by the layout of the XML.
I don't mind having the declined flag- my question is whether posts like this should be considered an answer. My only guess as to why it might be declined is the sentence:
Then i add to manifest android:windowSoftInputMode="stateHidden" and it works, but only for start case.
This does seem to provide part of the answer, or perhaps a hint towards it. I often see answers that do provide a bit of extra information ("I'm having this problem too, but not when I use version 2.3.9", or "I'm having this problem too, but only when I run at least 30 queries per minute") without answering the question. These would make great comments, but they are usually posted by users without 50 rep. My impression is that such posts should be flagged, and am curious whether this declined flag indicates otherwise.
Should this specific answer be considered "Not an answer"? And more generally, do answers that report "I have this problem too," but do provide some useful information, count as "Not an answer"?
