How to programmatically hide the keyboard

I have a textbox with a button inside. When the user presses the Action, a progress bas is displayed, the screen goes dark, and some magic happens.

My problem is that since the action doesn’t result in the textbox losing focus, the on-screen keyboard is not hidden, and keeps covering half the screen.

Just set focus to the main page:

this.Focus();

this will focus a control that doesn’t use the keyboard and thus hide the keyboard. Unfortunately there is no API to the keyboard to hide it.
