Description

Interface for on-screen keyboards. Only native iPhone, Android, and Windows Store Apps are supported.

This interface allows to display different types of the keyboard: ASCII, Numbers, URL, Email, and others.

Because the appearance of the keyboard has the potential to obscure portions of your user interface, it is up to you to make sure that parts of your user interface are not obscured when the keyboard is being displayed.

TouchScreenKeyboard.visible and TouchScreenKeyboard.area should be used to determine if the keyboard is being shown (activated) and what portion of the screen is using.

Windows Store Apps: On Universal Windows 10 Apps the touch screen keyboard is only supported in XAML based applications with touch input support.
