Call a virtual keyboard up from a WEB site button

I am writing a touch screen web site for a store (product finder) and want to use a touch screen keyboard.

I have seen various products on the weba nd many look pretty good.

What i want to do is have the keyboard running as an application in Windows XP but minimised and to be able to maximise and minimise the keyboard as required from  buttons in my web page. I am writing in classic ASP but would no doubt need a javascript call on a button to do this.

Can anybody give me guidance on how to do this?
