How do I deactivate the Tabtip on-screen keyboard for a tablet computer using VB.Net 2010
Posted on 2013-02-05
I have previously been programming in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and now am migrating some applications to Visual Studio 2010.
One of my applications will be modified to be used on a Windows 8 Pro Slate computer.
One obvious change is that my program will have to use the on-screen keyboard known as tabtip.exe.
I have tried to activate the tabtip executable when opening the application, which seems to work okay, but deactivating it is another matter.
So now I have some questions:
1. Are functions like tabtip part of an SDK? Is there one available for VS2010?
2. If not:
· Is there a standard way to configure the use of tabtip (ie. Open when an input field has focus, Close when a checkbox has focus)?
· Can something like this be used when a 'hard' keyboard base/dock is attached, automatically preventing tabtip from being shown?
Any insight would be appreciated.
