iPad Pro and Smart Key board

I’ve noticed the iPad Pro’s Smart Keyboard does not work like a Bluetooth keyboard, when showKeyboard() is used so that keyboard input can be registered, the screen slides up half way and shows a plain blank rectangle the same shape as the virtual keyboard with no keys present. The iPad Pro’s keys can be registered with keyboardBuffer(), but half the screen is covered. Can this be fixed so that nothing is shown when using the iPad Pro’s keyboard just like when using a a Bluetooth keyboard?
