Deactivate soft-keyboard on MC3300

Hi,

is it possible to deactivate the onscreen keyboard on the MC3300? Since this device has a hardware keyboard it would be helpful to deactivate the automatic popup of the soft-Keyboard.

I have seen such an option in other (non Zebra) devices.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards

Uwe

Go to any editable text field

Go to any editable text field, tap the keyboard icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen, set the toggle switch of show virtual keyboard to disabled. Does that work for you?

Thanks for your help.

My main problem was that my app needs complete control over the virtual keyboard (regardless of the availablilty af a hardware keyboard). I hadn't thought about the soft-keyboard-only devices when I asked the question, sorry.

I have managed to control the keyboard successfully so this is no longer an issue.

For the benefit of the community and whoever has this same problem in the future and finds this question, can you share how you are controlling the keyboard in your app?

Thanks!

Javier,

I currently have a support call open with Microsoft regarding the handling of the cursor. When this is solved, I will post the code (probably on GitHub) and add a link here.
