TextBox focus


I’m preparing an interface that will be used with a touchscreen and I was wondering if there is a way to detect if a textbox is currently active to use it’s state to launch an on-screen keyboard.


This is not currently possible in Human UI, but it at least seems possible to implement: (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19085931/how-to-make-wpf-input-control-show-virtual-keyboard-when-it-got-focus-in-touch-s). If you or anyone wants to take a stab at implementing this [in the code] for the TextBox component (https://bitbucket.org/andheum/humanui/src/master/) I’d be happy to include it - I’m afraid I don’t have much free time right now to add any new features in human UI myself.

Thanks Andrew,

I think that for now my solution would be adding a button that executes osk.exe,
but I’ll make a try at adding such indicator to the TextBox.
