On Screen Keyboard

Posted 09 November 2009 - 06:08 PM

Okay so I'm making an on screen keyboard, and was wondering - when I click something in the background, my form stays on top, how can this be accomplished? Can someone point me in the right direction?

Would that be applied to a button click event, a timer...?

You can do it in Form_Load, or there is also a Property for it.

I guess whatever you use to show the keyboard form

If say you click in a textbox and upon clicking you want to show the keyboard, you would put it in the TextBox1.Click event.

I have a similar function using a touchscreen that allows the user to click on their Clocktime and add a note. so In my listview they touch their specific line and a keyboard comes up allowing them to enter the note..

So basically, the code goes where you want to trigger the on screen keyboard.
