Qt Virtual Keyboard - greyed buttons



  • Hello.

    After upgrading my qt 5.8 to 5.10, I noticed there is some issues with the virtual keyboard. I'm not sure if its a bug or anything else than I'am not aware of.

    When I start the test gui application,keyboard is showing but the shift keys are unclickable, greyed and they only way can be activated if I click on some textfields.

    I have tried to run current test application on qt 5.7 & 5.8 and there was no issues at all. All buttons are clickable & works great. But as soon I change the Qt version to higher than 5.8, the issue appears. I tested with 5.9/5.10/5.11/5.12(A). Current test application can be downloaded from this link Dropbox.

    I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me if its qt bug or there is something that I do wrong.

    Hi @Tirolel,

    I tried it here with your example and it works for me. Does the basic example from qtvirtualkeyboard behave in the same way? Which platform is this on?

    Yes, it works but the shift wont be clickable until we have focus/active on some input field. I tried the project on ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10. Both same behavior.
