Force Keyboard to appear

Postby ferninfa » Tue Mar 17, 2020 4:10 pm

I'm using the virtual keyboard in a Kiosk where we use Chromium as a web browser. The problem is that the browser does not manage to rise the keyboard automatically.

Is there a way like calling a .exe to force the keyboard to appear? I control programatically when the user focus on a textfield, so calling somehow the keyboard would solve my problem.

Thank you,

Touch-It comes with a HTTP server. So you can control the keyboard by HTTP/GET request.

Please reinstall over and select HTTP server. After installation, a demo page is loaded in your default browser and details available commands.

Thanks for the explanation, it works perfectly!
It does, in fact, solve quite a lot of minor issues I had...
