Just got my torch last night! yayyy! I did read in one of the threads there is a way to bring the virtual keyboard down by swiping up and down (I think). But when I do that, I always open the manage connections option. Can someone explain how to get it to show wo opening the physical keyboard?
I have a torch 9800 and I am having problems everything work on the touch screen but the virtual keyboard.
On my Blackberry Torch 9800 I can receive messages but I cannot reply to them my touch screen and keyboard do not work.
I am using Torch 9800. Currently, the virtual keyboard doesn't appear when slider is closed. The indicator is also grey (not active). In the menu, "show keyboard" item is not listed. When I take the headset in landscape position, the screen is still in Portrait mode.
I have a torch 9800 running 6.0 software and all of sudden when i open the slider to use the physical keyboard the screen gets strange colors and writing and app icons turn backwards. But using the virtual keyboard and keep the slider down i have no problems.
i just upgraded my phone from a 9800 to a 9860.i am kind of missing the slide out keyboard on the 9800 of which i used to type words with near 100% accuracy.now with the 9860, i am struggling with the inaccuracy of the virtual only keyboard.advice to achieve better accuracy when using virtual keyboard? what i mean by inaccuracy is that i keep hitting the incorrect characters a bit too often.

BB Torch 9800, What is meaning of DE sign in top right hand corner of the screen?
I did a search in the forum for info about this, but didn't find anything. I'm wondering why you can't locks caps or numbers with the physical keyboard like you can with the virtual keyboard on the Torch? This as to be near the top of my list of most frustrating and counfounding 'features' of the Torch that drives me nuts on a daily basis. Is there any software update available that can make the physical keyboard work the same way as the virtual keyboard when it comes to locking caps and numbers?

I have the torch 9800 and there appears to be a bug with the on screen keyboard. After viewing a few pdf files in Repligo Reader I went to compose an email. I noticed that the on screen virtual keyboard was missing the outlines around the individual keys and the alt, shift, language selection and delete keys are not displayed. Also the background of the keyboard is all gunmetal grey and the keys are white with no outlines as mentioned above. I can still use the keys, touch the area where the keys are not displayed and the functionality remains intact. This happens in both horizontal and vertical mode. If I change the vertical keyboard to compact mode in options the vertical keyboard is displayed normally. I have reproduced this issue, reported it to the Repligo Reader developer and the only way to resolve it is a hard reset or full device restart.
I got a Blackberry Torch 9800. I have an issue with the slider (or I think this is the origin of my problem), my screen don't want to rotate in portrait mode and I can't have the virtual keyboard, even when the slider is closed. I have tried everything, from hard reboot to uninstall all my apps, wipe out my os and re install it.
Torch 9800 "fails to associate with the wi-fi netwrok" for some reason.My BB: Torch 9800 - OS 6.0 Bundle 3106 (v126.96.36.1993, Platform 188.8.131.52)
Handset: Torch 9800 Desktop Manager Version: 184.108.40.206 Problem: When I connect Torch with PC and start Desktop Manager, DM asks password for BB. Once the password is punched, DM takes some time to connect i.e. a PC and BB is shown on Torch screen, trying to connect to each other AND then DICONNECTS. Actions Already Taken: I have uninstalled and reinstalled DM. I have taken out battery and reboot BB. BUT problem persists.
For Torch 9800: only the touch screen buttons are working. The entire keypad and the top 5 buttons (menu, send, etc) were not working. I did several battery pulls and it finally started working. However BBM, FB, WhatsApp, BB App Store stopped working, but the web browser was still working, so it was not a connectivity problem. Then the keyboard problem started again. I did another battery pull and is started working again, but still to access to FB, BBM or Whatsapp,
I have a BB Torch 9800 and for some reason the digital keyboard went missing - I cannot get access to it - and furthermore when I tilt or turn my phone the screen does not adapt to the new position.
In my AIR app, when the virtual keyboard shows up the screen height shrinks. The problem I am having is after the virtual keyboard hides, the screen size stays shrunk and you can see a big black gap under the bottom of the app. The only way to adjust it is to rotate to landscape then back to portrait. � This seems to be a glitch with the virtual keyboard and programmers shouldn't be responsible for handling the screen size after it hides.
The Virtual Keyboard on my BB Torch won't display any ideas on how I can rectify this? I guess Imust have done something without knowing.The slide out keybaord works fine, but I can't get the Virtual Keybaord to show in any application.
I am creating a virtual on screen keyboard similar to the windows on screen keyboard. I dont know how to make buttons that change its size with window size as it takes in place in windows on screen keyboard (osk.exe). I also wanted to know if there is a way possible that could enlarge the buttons nearby the mouse cursor and recede & diminish the size of the buttons away from the mouse. And how to attach dictionary with it as in windows on-screen keyboard, like it shows the possible words we could type.
My BB Torch keyboard suddenly stopped working and cannot even input the password to unblock. I found out after several trials (don't ask me how many) that if I slided open and closed 2 times and then I press twice the "alt" button the keyboard starts working. Also the side button that I had for the camera is not working. Digital keyboard works fine. When the keyboard does not work, the outside keys (call, back, BB, touch pad, hang up) do not work either..
I got a new BB Torch 9800 a few days ago and the physical keyboard won;t work (and has never worked) when I slide it out. Does anyone know if there is a setting somewhere I need to activate, or is this likely to be a device fault? (By the way, I downloaded the latest software update and rebooted and took out the battery etc...) Everything else seems to work fine.
I have a BB Torch 9800 v. 6.0 Bundle 1907 v 220.127.116.118 PF 18.104.22.168. I can activate the foreign language input and foreign language display. But how on Earth can I use the keyboard to type uncommon characters such as in German ö, ä, ü, or in Spanish ñ, í, or French é, è, � ?

My wife uses my old original iPad. When going into email to type something in the body of the email the keyboard shows up in the middle of the screen. The keyboard usually remains at the bottom when typing something, but the keyboard now shows up in the center. She can still type the message and send it.How can I get the virtual keyboard to get back onto the bottom again?
I'm developing a mobile Flash application (not an AIR app) running in the browser. According to Adobe: Flash Player 10.1 provides support for use of native device virtual keyboards with TextField support if no physical keyboard is detected. A virtual keyboard is automatically raised and lowered in response to focus changes on text fields when editing text on mobile devices supporting a virtual keyboard to enable unobstructed and intuitive text editing. The focused text field is centered in the visible region of the page and appropriately zoomed/scrolled to ensure it is not obscured by the virtual keyboard. Upon screen rotation, incoming calls, or other system events,any already existing text input is retained.The virtual keyboard works with TextField but does not currently work with the Text Layout Framework or other Flash Text Engine text. I'm listening for a tap event (which works) that sets stage.focus = input; which also is working. However, the virtual keyboard is not triggered.I am testing on an HTC Evo.
I bought an BB Torch 9800 in USA, factory unlocked, from AT&T, and now i'm in Brazil with another carrier here.Everytime that I try to sync my BB protect with my BB ID, it shows 'Verifying Blackberry ID' and then, it returns 'The Blackberry ID service is unavaible' but when I tried to sync my BB App World with my Blackberry ID, it was ok.And another problem is, i've updated my Blackberry Core Systems with Blackberry Desktop Software, but everytime that I connect my blackberry with my PC, it shows that I need to update it again. I've update more than 3 times, and still shows as not updated.
When I close slider, the virtual key board do not appear, rotation function also. I use a magnet torch in the back of cellfone, virtual keyboard appear and use normally, but when open slider and close, it back to old trouble.
My new iPad keyboard (i.e. the default virtual keyboard of iOS) when it comes up (slides up) it doesn't slide back in when the typing mode is no longer needed.� E.g. when I swipe all the way to the left and reach the search screen, the keyboard pops up, and when I swipe back to the home screen the keyboard stays up until I press the 'hide keyboard' button.� Info: iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + 4G, iOS 5.1
I have a virtual keyboard on screen, with SimpleButtons for each of the keyboard keys.� In addition to using the on-screen keyboard, I want to allow for physical keyboard input as well. Everything works, but I am looking for a way to trigger the rollover/down/up animation of the SimpleButton if the user uses the keyboard.� Is this possible?� I'm already capturing the keystroke info and matching it against the SimpleButton, but I don't know how to get the button to play.
I need help with showing the integrated virtual keyboard on-screen. I extended a View class and I implemented these two methods (most of it is just stub code; for now I only want to display the keyboard): CODE:............. Where editor is an instance of my View. I noticed in the debugger that my onCreateInputConnection() is executed but after that the keyboard is not displayed on the screen. Using the TextView widtget and it's subclasses is not an option.
Of the three blackberrys i have owned and used (9000, 9700 and 9800) i have to say i think the 9000's keyboard is by far the best of them all. I am on the 9700 right now and really miss my 9000's keyboard. It felt so much more roomy and comfortable to type on. I wish they would make a larger phone like the 9000 again. IMO it had the best keyboard, best sounding speakerphone and of course that nice large screen.
I have a problem with my ipad2 virtual keyboard. When I type on Safari or on some chat software like Facebook mobile my ipad2 virtual keyboard is sometimes sluggish and it will take longer than usual for a letter to show up on the screen and if I type fast that letter won't even show at all... It happens more with some keys than with others, especially with the y.Can someone tell me what the problem may be due to
I am new to this forum and I have got a huge problem. A week ago, my bb Torch started to act weird when I needed The keyboard. The screen went black, or The screen got mirrored. but everything still worked when The keyboard was not sliced open. Yesterday, my bb just went black when i opened The keyboard and this time, the screen stayed black. I think there is something wrong with the software on the chip that controles the visual for the screen. Because even when i had mirrored view, it still responded on the touchscreen, but the things you saw just didnt match with What you touched. What can I do? I bought my bb online, so i cant go back to the store.
How to catch event from the virtual keyboard?In fact, I want to know if the screen is touch for instance.
A month ago I bought a blackberry torch 9800. At that moment I was very happy with it, because my other blackberry (curve 8520) had to be repared. ut now my bb 9800 has a failure. At this moment the trackpad works on 1 part of te screen. So you have to activate the part of the screen by touchscreen. For example: you can scroll through the menu but not scroll to the sound profiles. Therefore you have to touch the icon on the screen. And sometimes the keyboard doesn't work either. The buttons: dial, menu, return and on/off aren't working either.I have tried many things. Hard boot, master boot and a complete new installation of the OS.
I am on my 4th B.B. Torch 9810. At odd times when the keyboard is extended and I am typing an email or text msg. The screen will black out and bounce me out to the main screen. This has happened on every Torch I have received since January of this year.
I have an Activity with an EditText, a button and a ListView. The purpose is to type a search screen in the EditText, press the button and have the search results populate this list. This is all working perfectly, but the virtual keyboard is behaving strange. If I click the EditText, I get the virtual keyboard. If I click the "Done" button on the virtual keyboard, it goes away. However, if I click my search button before clicking "Done" on the virtual keyboard, the virtual keyboard stays and I can't get rid of it. Clicking the "Done" button does not close the keyboard. It changes the "Done" button from "Done" to an arrow and remains visible.
I have to make a virtual keyboard with my application which needs to input Chinese characters. I can change the input language to Chinese, but cannot input Chinese coding as normal keyboard does...(I am using SendKeys.Send("A") as if I am pressing the "A" key on the keyboard, but the focus is on my virtual keyboard (another form other than the form of editing).) any solution which I can get the virtual keyboard and the main task in the same application?
I have the standard IPAD external keyboard.� Normally, the virtual keyboard does not come up. However, when I work with numbers and shift to a new cell, the virtual keyboard pops up. It seems odd that the virtual keyboard would come up when Apple Keyboard is clearly synched. Info:iPad 2
Since updating when I am at the menu screen and press the BB button, I no longer have the keyboard option. I only have the "show keyboard" option when in messages, etc. Nothing is hidden. How do I restore my keyboard option as a selection when in the menu screen?
I have been able to sync my calendar entries between my BB 9800 Torch and my Yahoo calendar until recently. Both BB and Yahoo have been upgraded and now the sync no longer works. The BB Desktop Manager syncs my Contact List perfectly with Windows Contact list, then reads my BB Torch calendar, then stops syncing with the message " CONNECTION TO YAHOO SERVER WAS LOST". I have checked all my settings and reviewed other forum threads but cannot determine what is causing this problem.
I am working in a project which uses the Facebook graph-api to log in. I have the requirement of only using a virtual keyboard (no hardware will be present). I have looked everywhere, but can't find a solution for adding a virtual qwerty keyboard to the popUp. I can put the keyboard into a popup, or I could add the qwerty keyboard into the screen with the addChild() method, but I still have one problem: the virtual keyboard does not focus to the textInputs of the popup and when i press a key, everything "explooota". I mean... when i prees the virtual key, i call a java function wich simulate a physical keyboard, but i lose the focus into the facebook input text and the letter is not in the textinput. and i dont know how to recover the focus.
I signed up for BB user ID on my Torch 9800 and the screen is stuck on "signing up". i can exit with the red phone button but the back button does nothging. I have tried turning off my BB and when I click on the APP World icon I am taken back to the stuck sign on screen.
I have a new BB Torch 9810 and I'm trying to restore from BB Protect but not all contacts restore - and it seems random which ones don't. I tried a resolution posted about unticking not restoring contacts which are e-mail synchronized but the only option under "Synchronisation Options" on my Torch is "Deleted items". When I look at the back-up data on Protect for the old device (Torch 9800) each synch has 2 Address Book entries with different numbers of items. Could it somehow be restoring only one of these two files?
When I playing a video on my Torch 9800 the screen will blank after about 2 minutes.
It would be sweet if the Droid (or OS 2.0.1 as the case may be), when switching orientation from portrait to landscape, would keep the keyboard showing if it was already showing in the prior orientation.Often, I'll be typing a text in portrait mode and then realize that I'd prefer to type faster and more accurately.However, when I switch to landscape orientation, I have to click/highlight the text box in order for the virtual keyboard to show again.It's a bit of a hassle.Oh yeah, for the hardware keyboard lovers out there that suggest I use it instead.I hate the hardware keyboard.though curiously,the keypad is pretty nice for moving the cursor.
i have just got a 9800 and updated the software however since the update i cant change the physical keyboard to a qwerty it is set to azerty
I have to use a Virtual(on screen) keyboard on a asp:textbox which has a AjaxControlToolkit's automcomplete attached to it, the virtual keyboard I use is the jQuery keypad plug in: http:[url].... ,but I have some problems with combining these two: Typing in the virtual keyboard does not trigger the Autocomplete list.When the textbox has autopostback=true if you click anything on virtual keyboard the textbox loses its focus and posts the form.Does anyone knows that on respond to what events the autocomplete list activates? and also I need to know how to prevent textbox from losing its focus when a button on virtual keyboard is pressed?
In Jelly Bean when using a bluetooth or usb keyboard (certain mice and scanners also) force the on screen keyboard off. Then anyone can choose to turn off the physical keyboard (or whatever device) by going into the input method option (also known as Input and Language) in settings and selecting the OFF option and upon doing so the keyboard (or whatever device) still works and now the on screen keyboard works also. (very simple) The option to turn ON or OFF the physical keyboard is not present in the input method selector screen unless a physical device is attached via usb or bluetooth. How can one do this from a terminal window or using a shell command. I would like to automate this silly feature via Tasker or Locale but can not do so until I know the console command. I know how to switch IME devices from the command shell or with the Secure Settings plugin but when a physical device is connected it does not show using the shell command IME LIST. Only virtual keyboards are listed, not physical devices.
Is there a way to bring up the virtual keyboard when the BT keyboard is connected? Information: iPad 3G
I'm getting the G1 next weekend and am wondering how long until a virtual keyboard will be available. I really like the idea of having a full slide-out keyboard but I would also like a virtual one so if I'm not wanting to say much I can just use the virtual keyboard or if I'm in an area where it needs to be quiet I don't need to have the sound of the keyboard sliding open.
how does the keyboard on screen compare with the eris? i been looking at so many reviews and some claim they are either EQUAL or LESS THAN the eris'.they say the eris has more seperation between the buttons for less mess ups and more of a push button feel.reason is - if i get a droid, i want to be able to type mostly on the virtual keyboard and not mess with the slider unless it serves the most practical.so far with the eris im amazed at the keyboard on screen, used to HATE typing on screen but now i love it.
Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of both the virtual keyboard and QWERTY keyboard?
I am trying to use autocomplete with virtual keyboard [URL] If i use the actual keyboard, autocomplete works but if i use the virtual keyboard by pressing with mouse autocomplete does not work. (On both cases virtual keyboard gets displayed perfect.) How can i sort this out? [Code...]
I have no idea what has happened but my bb torch no longer rotates the display and I can no longer access the virtual keyboard. I have a feeling that the gyro has broken. I have rebooted a number of times.
I have a ListView and it is possible to use the hardware keyboard to filter out items. However what should I do for phones that don't have a hardware keyboard and only a virtual one? Is there a way to add a button that when pressed, the virtual keyboard shows up?
I want to display keyboard when my app gets started. I know we can get Virtual Keyboard when clicked on EditText field, but I want to show Virtual Keyboard without clicking on EditText.
We have got all our own edit boxes etc. so we call the virtual keyboard from SDK 1.5 in the followng way (when the use selects one of our edit/text boxes): Context c = getApplicationContext(); InputMethodManager inputManager = (InputMethodManager) c.getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE ); inputManager.showSoftInput(ourCanvasInstance, 0); This works fine and even populates our edit boxes automatically upon key entry, we can dismiss it by calling: inputManager.toggleSoftInput(0, 0); The problem we have now is that we need to know the size of the virtual keyboard so that we can resize all our popups etc to fit within the area of the screen that is not covered by the virtual keyboard. Is there anyway of getting the height of the default virtual keyboard? I have noticed that android.inputmethodservice.Keyboard has access to the height but I can't seem to find anyway to access this, does anyone happen to know any useful pointers to be able to access the height of the VK?
My Blackberry Bold 9930 does not display the option to Enable or Hide the Qwerty Keyboard.I rebooted and checked Options > Typing and Language > Keyboard.The Keyboard Screen only displays Keypad Settings. Key Tone: Key Rate: Currency Key: The Enable Virtual Keyboard Hide Bar is not displayed here with a Checkbox!
I hear people complain a lot about iPad's virtual keyboard or I hear them say that the keyboard dock is necessary for typing longer documents. I actually find iPad's virtual keyboard easier to type on than a tactile keyboard, and I was wondering if I'm the only one.I often see people typing in landscape mode on their iPad with only one finger. Why not just type the correct way as you would on a tactile keyboard? That's the way I type and my typing is faster on the virtual keyboard. I think it's easier and faster because 1) I don't have to press down on each key, just lightly and quickly tap my fingers on the screen, and 2) iOS corrects and auto-capitalizes so many words that I save time by not needing to hold down shift keys or enter periods or apostrophes all the time.
I was so excited to have a Blackberry device and my choice was the Torch 9810 mainly for 3 reasons. 1- The big screen. 2- The touch screen with the sliding keyboard. 3- Latest OS. As I watched and read so many reviews about it and compared it to the Bold 9900 and the Torch 9860. The reviews for the Torch 9860 were somehow negative, and the sliding keyboard was a win over the Torch 9860. Bold seemed to be a good phone but the bigger screen was again what made me go for the Torch 9810. For a new Blackberry user like me, I couldn't really figure out much differences between the three phones. Unfortunately the Torch 9810 is not yet here in Egyptian market and I was about to buy a Bold 9900 till I noticed it would be locked to my carrier and then I changed my mind. I asked a family member to buy the Torch 9810 for me from the UAE and I finally got it one week ago.
I got my E7 yesterday and encountered a problem today. When I try to write an sms or email on the virtual keyboard (phone slide closed in portrait format), the screen is not responsive at all. The screen is responsive when I press the "write message" icon on the homescreen, I can press any icon etc. and the phone works. Only when I open the virtual keyboard, does it stop responding. Only way out of the screen is to press the physical key on the bottom of the phone. Anyone else encountered this? Could there be some weird setting that prevents me from using the virtual keyboard? The physical keyboard works fine.
I was thinking that a bluetooth keyboard with iPad in vertical (portrait mode) running Pages or some other word processor would be a very good thing. But a lot of the advantage of the bluetooth keyboard is in the fact that you get a full screen of text (no pop-up virtual keyboard hogging up 30% of the screen real-estate). BUT- I don't think that the iPad virtual keyboard is going to disappear even if you are connected with a bluetooth keyboard! Anyone think Apple was smart enough to disable all pop-up keyboards when BT is connected?
I created a virtual keyboard (ie: keyboard Form2) which can be displayed by the user in which they can click on certain keys with the mouse and I can tell which character they have clicked on. Is there a way to have my other Form1 process these keypresses as if they came "from a real keyboard". I realize I can simply pass the KeyCode/Shift values into the KeyDown event of Form1(which has KeyPreview=true) for it to process the characters entered, however, certain characters like Tab/Arrow keys (which the OS uses to move around the controls on Form1) will not get processed the same way since they were not generated from input from a real keyboard. I really do not want to emulate what the TAB key does via code, I would rather like to somehow make the code believe the keyDown event came directly from a keyboard input.Did this make sense .... kind of hard to explain......?In a nutshell, how do you make a virtual keyboard act exactly like a real keyboard (ie: so all keys which are clicked on the virtual keyboard would be treated the same way as if they were entered via a real keyboard)?Edited by - uncletr on 8/17/2004 6:20:45 AM
I have a BB Torch 9800 and I'm having some trouble with a message notifier on the top of the front screen that don't get off anyway.It's like a notifier from an e-mail or a text message, but is some icon with a white envelope and a bb symbol. I looked for every app and can't find where it came from.
I switched from a Blackberry Curve to a BB Torch 9800, transferring all data from the old to the new BB via the BB Desktop Manager. There were 4 internet mail accounts on the old BB, and icons for the same accounts are now present on the BB Torch 9800. Problems: (1) Even though there are the icons, I cannot send or receive e-mails on the BB from/on any of the four accounts. (2) So I went to the set-up icon, selected "e-mail accounts", the BB did the "connecting to e-mail settings", and a log-on page to existing user accounts appears, asking for user name (the e-mail address, presumably) and the respective password. But here is what I cannot resolve: No matter what I type in the user name field and the password field, the BB always says "The user name is invalid. A user name must be at least 4 characters". A blatantly absurd reaction, for none of my user names has so few characters.
I own a BB Torch 9800. It used to be for personal use only, but recently my service provider has activated BB Enterprise and my company IT department has synchronized my corporate email on it.Everything works well, except for the fact that I have now a 'keystore password' that locks my screen every 30 minutes and I need to enter a password to unlock.In the password setup, the tick mark to enable/disable is locked so I cannot turn it off. And the lock frequency is max 30 minutes.
