What is a "programmable virtual keyboard"?

Given that this is some sort of UI thing, and OE supports many different types of UIs with different capabilities (web/GUI/CHUI/.Net/Java/etc.), you should provide a more complete picture of what you are trying to achieve.

Contact Corby and fellas in the UK, many, many years ago we developed a touch screen keyboard. Depending on the data type and format of the input fields will dictate what pop-up keyboard was to show.

It's quite simple really.

If you have screenspace just build a keyboard using appbuilders buttons underneath, or slap it in a frame and view-hide the frame on another button.

When you say "External Programmable Keyboard", are you referring to something like this?

Really?

Click the button in the Palette and then click the window.

Then click the button and click edit code. Then edit your triggers to do what you need them to do.

are you asking how to use button triggers?

I'm not too sure on the question really, but if its the triggers then look at the screenshot above.

on choose
do:

some logic based on whatever button was pressed.

end.
