Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of a way to automatically invoke the touch keyboard built into a windows 8 tablet (not the on screen keyboard)

I have produced a program (not a metro style app) in c# that has various text boxes requiring user input and I would like for the touch keyboard to open automatically when a user clicks inside the textbox, the same way as it would when you do so using a web browser,

Hi,

No, as I said in my post, tablets all have their own built in Touch Keypad and when you enter any sort of text - such as a url in a web browser - that keyboard opens automatically.
