Making the keyboard visible or disable hide keyboard button

iOS and iPadOS
I use the Apple bluetooth keyboards, which have a key to hide the onscreen keyboard. If I accidentally hit this key without knowing it, I later want to type on the phone itself, only to discover that the onscreen keyboard isn't there. Is there any way to disable this feature so hitting that key doesn't hide the keyboard? Failing that, is there any way, short of rebooting the phone, to make the keyboard visible without using a bluetooth keyboard to unhide it? Thanks.
