I am using input type with the edit text fields but noticed that even with types like : TextPersonName Iam still getting full keyboard with even special characters.

Iam trying to validate the input of name, email and password, used REGEX and textWatcher, well textWatcher is causing me un expected responses.  So thought of handling the keyboard itself, yet it is not change to whatever input type I use!

Any comment or hints on this will be thankful!
