Ios – how to add an action on UITextField return key


I have a button and text textfield in my view. when i click on the textfield a keyboard appears and i can write on the textfield and i also able to dismiss the keyboard by clicking on the button by adding:

[self.inputText resignFirstResponder];

Now I want to enable return key of keyboard. when i will press on the keyboard keyboard will disappear and something will happen. How can I do this?

Best Solution

Ensure "self" subscribes to UITextFieldDelegate and initialise inputText with:

self.inputText.delegate = self;

Add the following method to "self":

- (BOOL)textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField {
    if (textField == self.inputText) {
        [textField resignFirstResponder];
        return NO;
    return YES;

Or in Swift:

func textFieldShouldReturn(_ textField: UITextField) -> Bool {
    if textField == inputText {
        return false
    return true
