I have a touchscreen monitor with an online form displayed. I would like a touchscreen keyboard to pop up when someone touches inside the input field for writing their name. Does anyone know how to code for this on my webpage and of any good touchscreen keyboard software? Thanks.

Ignore that, deleting that file would destroy your windows computer.
Seems to be some kind of trolling:

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

To clarify my question. I don't have access to the underlying code of the form page that is displayed. So affecting the page with PHP or javascript code to get this to work is a no go. Is there any way I can still trigger a windows based touchscreen keyboard to appear when somebody clicks in the input field of the form page?

I suggest that you shall try Comfort On-Screen Keyboard Lite 4.3.

http://www.comfort-software.com/on-screen-keyboard.html

OR

Upgrade to Windows 7 as its touch screen support is much better and would do what you want.
