Hide Samsung Tablet Soft Keyboard Programatically

Android keyboard usually will show up when there are focus in input widget like EditText. In mobile device we can avoid soft keyboard show up when at first fragment/activity start by defining this code on the input widget xml.

android:focusableInTouchMode="true"

But this method will not work in samsung tablet, in my case Samsung Galaxy Tab.
So we have to hide it programatically to hide samsung soft keyboard. We just need to add this single line on your fragment/activity initialization.

getWindow().setSoftInputMode(WindowManager.LayoutParams.SOFT_INPUT_STATE_ALWAYS_HIDDEN);
