I found a post from about a year ago suggesting that the system.gui.passwordBox function doesn’t work with the on-screen keyboard when using a touchscreen. Unless I’m missing something that appears to still be true. We are using the passwordBox function on a button (displayed on a touchscreen), but the on-screen keyboard doesn’t work, even with touchscreen mode enabled (script below).
password = system.gui.passwordBox("Please enter the password.")
if password == "xxxxxxx":
I read one possible workaround of using the showTouchscreenKeyboard function to manually pop up the keyboard, but am having trouble passing the text from the keyboard into the password box.
If this is possible, any recommendations on how to accomplish it would be helpful. If it isn’t, I would appreciate any ideas on making the on-screen keyboard work with the passwordBox function.
We are using ignition 7.6.4
