Dojo integrated virtual keyboard
Posted on 2011-09-09
For a website I developed there is a need for input through a touch screen.
That all works well, except for the input part.
The Windows 7 virtual keyboard keeps disappearing (I really don't know how users manage to do so, but they do)
I've tested several other offerings, but the all lack a solid 'monkey proof' design. (meaning 'always on top' really is always available, not minimized, program closed or nowhere visible).
So I decided I needed a virtual keyboard in my website.
As I'm using the Dojo framework, I thought that would be general available, but to my disappointment this isn't the case.
The only Dojo integrated example I found was the OpenSiteMobile Virtual Keyboard v1.2.3 but I didn't manage to get it working. Lots of references to other files that aren't in the package. I fetched some of them through lwp-download, but got stuck on lots of 'msos' errors.
Is there anyone who has managed to get this working or has some other working example of a virtual keyboard for IE9?
It would also be very nice if it was adaptable in size and keyboard layout.
