    Default Virtual Keyboard on Qtopia 4.2.1

    Hello Experts,

    I'm using qtopia 4.2.1 (phone edition) for my Nokia-770 (without keyboard). I'd like to get a text from user with the dialog box. What class should I use (or where can I get an information) to handle the on screen graphical virtual keyboard widget? I need the same implementation that I have in "qtmail" application (on qtopia-4.2.1) - when the user chooses to write a new email, the virtual keyboard window is automatically pop up.

    I saw in some Trolltech documentations that the virtual keyboard is available to qtopia core only! Please let me know if that is the case.
    If it isn't the case, please let me know how can I configure and integrate the virtual keyboard for qtopia 4.2.1

    Thank you in advance,
    Alex

    Virtual keyboards come included with Qtopia Phone (and open source edition), but not with Qtopia Core.

    Make sure you are using Touchscreen in your defaultbuttons.conf

    Thank you so much lpotter that was the main problem.

    I have a virtual keyboard now!

    But I have something strange happening here. When I running my application (without -qws), I don't have the virtual keyboard shown when input from user should grfabed.
    Another thing is the resolution of my application is different between two modes (running with -qws high resolution, and without low resolution).
    I'm not killing the qpe before, and the virtual keyboard is active - this isn't the mode I'd like to work thought.

    How it's possible to prevent virtual keyboard to disappear?
    Thank you in advance,
