Auto-show on-screen-keyboard for touchscreen application?
« on: October 23, 2007, 02:33:03 AM »
Hey fellow DCers,

I was wondering if there is any on-screen-keyboard solution that automatically pops up the moment an edit control gets focus.
Any recommendations?

This probably won't help, but KeePass has an optional extra screen keyboard - here's part of the readme file:

Quote

The on-screen keyboard for KeePass is based on Randy More's
on-screen keyboard implementation for pen computing and touchscreens.
You can find his original sources and article here:

the main thing here is, that if i focus a control that needs keyboard input (textbox, etc) the on-screen-keyboard should pop up automatically.
i've found a couple of virtual keyboards already, but none have this feature

thats a nice idea.. wouldn't this be a good coding snack -- a program that detects when you are in an editbox or other edit control and launches a configured application when you are?

post it in the coding snacks request section, this seems like something right up skrommel (or some other ahk coder) alley.
