Dismiss the virtual keyboard [webOS 3.x]

This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

The virtual keyboard on the HP TouchPad will automatically pop-up whenever you tap on a text-input field throughout the OS. However, there may be times when you want to dismiss the keyboard because you need to see something underneath it or you just no longer need it anymore. To get rid of the keyboard, all you need to do is tap the keyboard button on the bottom-right and the keyboard will disappear. This is the same button that you can use to resize the keyboard by press-and-holding it.

If you need to reactivate the keyboard, just tap back into the text input field, or you can press the keyboard pop-up icon on the bottom-right of the screen in Mojo-emulation apps (in webOS 3.0.2 or higher).
