    How To Disable SIP(OnBoard Touch Keyboard)

    Tim Leland

      Ive tried a few things to disable the onboard touch keyboard. This did not work.

       

      • <META HTTP-Equiv="SIPButton" Content="Visibility:Hidden">
      • <META HTTP-Equiv="SIP" Content="Left:640;Top:640"> Suppose to hide off screen.

       

      I want it completely gone.

       

       

      Anyone have success in getting rid of it?

       

       

      Thanks

          Tim,

           

           

           

          There is a note in the Help File: Device & Application/SIP:

           

           

           

          Disabling the SIP

           

          If you want to completely disable to the use of the SIP, set it to appear off the visible area of the screen (see example above). You can use a default meta tag to avoid pasting the tag on every page. Alternatively on the Enterprise Tablet, call the manual method.

           

           

           

          To completely disable the use of the SIP it can be positioned off the visible area of the screen.(You should get dimensions of device)

           







          The following example sets the SIP to manual:

           

           

           

                

           

          sip.manual();

              Ive added this "<META HTTP-Equiv="SIP" Content="Left:640;Top:640">" to my <head> index page and the keyboard still shows up. Any way to disable it in the config file? What does this mean? "You can use a default meta tag to avoid pasting the tag on every page."

                  Sorry my email response seemed to lose the HTML inside it for some reason. If this is for the ET1, then the only choice is to use:

                  sip.manual();

                  or

                  <META HTTP-Equiv="SIP" Content="Manual">

                   

                  The Left/Top have no effect on the Android keyboard.

                   

                  When the help file mentioned: "You can use a default meta tag to avoid pasting the tag on every page.", this means in the config.xml you can have a section like:

                   

                  <DefaultMetaTags>

                          <MetaTag VALUE="SignatureCapture~left:30;top:130;height:100;bgcolor:#663300;width:200;border:visible;visibility:visible;" />

                          <MetaTag VALUE="Signal~left:10;top:200;color:#663300;"/>      

                        </DefaultMetaTags>

                   

                  That would be applies to all pages loaded. Look in the Help/Getting Started/Configuration Settings section. I think the build you are using may not have this supported on the ET1. Can you please try the javascript sip.manual() method?
