  • Overview

    The Virtual Keyboard for WPF is a UI control that allows users to type without the need for a physical keyboard. It can be utilized via a mouse or touch gesture, making it very suitable for tablets and kiosks.

  • Native Input and Display Options

    The control is not focusable, therefore all input from it will go directly to the focused component, without the need to trap events and send them to controls. In addition, the keyboard can be shown inline or in a dedicated window that can be moved by the user.
