Hardware keyboard on simulator. Possible?
My app mostly targets touch screen devices, but ones with hardware keyboard as well. Is there a way to simulate HW keyboard in Simulator? I can't find the way for it.
I've got a funny bug that on devices with keyboard (in Nokia's Remote Device Access at least) every HW button pressed is registered as two keypresses in my app.
I know that simulator can take input from the PC keyboard, but this way I can't reproduce the bug.
In simulator if you simulate a non-touch device you see the device itself, including the keyboard. If the keyboard is not shown I think that maybe a problem of the code. Maybe ?
Also on touch devices when you touch a text input field that has the correct focus management you see the on-screen keyboard appearing. A good way to try both the conditions I think maybe to simulate a touch and screen device.
I am probably missing something very basic :/
I have latest SDK 1.1.3, start simulator, choose N97 and can't see any keyboard open.
I should check on my computer what it maybe. Tomorrow first I will try on my simulator and an app that I am sure how are managed the input fields so I can see what happens and will update this thread. (already set a note on the agenda)
For my own app I solved the problem by borrowing N97 from a friend (BTW, Remote Device Access, a good service otherwise, sucks with the simulation of keyboard presses).
That said, it is still a bit of a problem that there's no keyboard based device in simulator.
