    Text input on S60 5th Edition

    How can I get text input from the user using a Canvas in 5th edition, without a physical keypad?
    I'm thinking about starting the virtual keyboard for example.
    Is that even possible?

    I know about the game and navigation keypads defined in JAD or through the App. Manager, but they aren't enough for our use case.

    Are we on our own to implement a virtual keypad? Or is there a better solution? (Even internal methods would do.)

    Any chance that it will be in the framework later? It seems pretty trivial...

    Thanks for any help!

    Checked this from the dev team.

    Unfortunately the only available options for attribute "Nokia-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad" are "no", "gameactions" and "navigationkeys"

    This means, that if you need a keyboad for your Canvas, you need to implement it yourself. Unfortunately.
