This may not be an Ignition issue...
I have a customer using desktop PCs without keyboards, so they need to use a virtual keyboard to type anything.
I have spent far too long trying to force Windows 10 to open its native OSK if a keyboard isn't attached on desktop hardware and have given up . No option will open the OSK even in Windows OS windows like the start menu/file explorer, etc. /rage_quit
I've resorted to installing a virtual keyboard extension into all sorts of browsers (Chrome, Firefox (although the only ones available are paid so I havent' tested this one), Brave), and while the keyboards all show up when I click on a numeric input/text field/area text field, and pressing on keys actually input the chars into the field, the values don't actually make it into the components'
props.text. I've confirmed this by binding another label's text to the input field's text, and this never changes. Typing with a keyboard works, and manually opening up the Windows OSK works as well, just not the browser extensions. The browser extension does, however, let me type into the login fields and log in. So my guess is that it's something to do with the input field components themselves
The browser extensions I've tested are:
Edit: It appears that the virtual keyboard extensions' Enter button is more like a line feed which doesn't trigger the enter key event handler (or something)
Obviously, I'd like to avoid using a browser extension if I can, so if anyone has any ideas about how I can force Windows 10 into submission, I'm all ears!! Maybe I should threaten to delete random files from the System32 folder....
