Custom Virtual Keyboard issue
Long story short: How can different custom keyboard layouts be used in the same application but on different QML forms?
I'm using Qt 5.9.4 on Ubuntu 16.04.
I have Qt Quick application that I want to have different keyboard layout on the different QML forms.
Currently the virtual keyboard is working fine but it is the same layout on every screen.
I have copied the en_GB layout from Qt folder and modified it for my needs.
Using this line of code I have successfully added the new custom layout:
But this way the custom keyboard is shown on every QML form.
I know nothing about this. But while you're waiting for anyone else to answer: assuming that Qt responds to whatever
QT_VIRTUALKEYBOARD_LAYOUT_PATHhappens to be at the instant a form is shown (and doesn't cache a previously used value) you could try re-issuing the desired
qputenv("QT_VIRTUALKEYBOARD_LAYOUT_PATH", "/path/to/layouts");with a different layout just before each form gets opened (via whatever signal tells you a form is about to be loaded/displayed)?
Tried it but unfortunately it does not work. Probably because all of my QML forms are loaded in StackLayout and after that the environment variables are not read any more.
