Hi all,

I'm trying to get an existing App working on a Wibows 8 samsung ativ smart pc.. I've noticed a few things not quite working right, double click for one.

But the most important one at the moment is that I can't get the soft keyboard to display. The code works fine on iOs and  Android.

_base._user.needsSoftKeyboard = true;

_base._user.requestSoftKeyboard();

Is there something I'm missing?

I'm giving up.. I'm going to have to port the project to a standard SWF framework and using MDM Zinc to launch TabTip.exe

System.exec("C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\microsoft shared\\ink\\TabTip.exe");

I can't tell from your code snippet, but are you also setting the input to have focus?

stage.focus = _base._user;

I'm just clutching at straws, but i wonder if you need to specify something in your application.xml to make it work?  See this link: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/air/build/WSfffb011ac560372f-5d0f4f25128cc9cd0cb-7ffd.html#WS901d38e593c...

In particular there may be a setting to force the app to use 'touchscreen', 'multi touch' or 'virtual keyboard'?  It seems to me that at the moment the app (the AIR runtime) doesn't think these things are supported.  If you could force it to think the app was running on a mobile device (for example) it may work?

Try:

<supportedProfiles>mobileDevice</supportedProfiles>

Another long shot, but during initialisation, try setting MultiTouch?

Multitouch.inputMode = MultitouchInputMode.TOUCH_POINT;

Worth a shot.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I've tried what you mentioned above, but unfortunetely to no avail.

I'm sure there's got to be a solution out there.. I'm really not happy with the Zinc solution. It's a bit strange how Native Process can't launch TabTip.exe.
