Talk about trailing your coat . . .

There is a simple reason I did not reply to your posting:

As far as I understood your posting I thought you were wanting to make 
an on-screen keyboard
  is Livecode that would allow you to type into other applications 
[rather than type into a field
in a Livecode stack], and the simple fact is that I don't know how to do 
that.

Both my Devawriter and my PISMO feature on-screen keyboard that enter 
text (Devawriter via
all sorts of jazzy post-processing, and PISMO directly] into a field in 
the same card: I have, subsequently
experimented with a palette keyboard that will type in the desired 
writing system into whichever field
and whatever stack that is selected.

About 2 or 3 weeks ago, when I was playing with a paletted keyboard I 
posted a question about
how to use that to type into a textEditor on this Use-List; and it fell 
flat on its face.

If you want a virtual keyboard inwith your app, I'm yer man; if you want 
something to type into
other apps, I'm (at least currently) completely useless.

Richmond.
