Hi all,

I want to start here a new discussion about Air Windows Applications. There is an increasing number of Windows 8/8.1 tablets/convertibles out on the market.

Developing applications for those tablets issues a challenge to many developers nowadays. If a user want's to input some data he has to use a SoftKeyboard. As a Mobile Developer I am used to have the automated functionality of a soft keyboard integration in the system. Starting a windows Air Application let me struggle - there is no way to get a SoftKeyboard be shown with standard functionality. Yes, there are some possibilities like calling the TabTip.exe directly or native extension. But this is not really a nice user experience. You'll never get this smoothly working - especially if you are working with Flex. The whole Flex SoftKeyboard integrations could not be used that way. It's annoying!

I am in contact with Chris Campbel‌ (project manager of Adobe Air) - he presented me the prospect to add a soft keyboard integration feature to Air for Windows Applications.

The best way to convince him to add this feature is to vote as much as we can for having this feature on one of the next version.

Please support this feature by voting and commenting for it.
