    Virtual Keyboard: How to disable form to enter phone number?

    Hi,

    If I press Call key (Green key) while Virtual Keyboard (VKB) is active, form to enter phone number appears.
    Is it possible to disable this feature in my application?
    Device: N97 mini, SDK: 5th edition v1.0.

    Thanks,
    Andrii.

    Why would you need to disable it ?, basically what is the use case you are trying to acieve by this ?

    Hi Yucca,
    My application is VoIP client. There is a view with editor to type URL where call key is used to make a VoIP call.
    Currently my code is working properly in case VKB is not active but in case VKB is shown native form to enter phone number appears.
    It looks like side effect because my code is executed (VoIP call is started) but user sees keyboard to type number instead of my Call View.

    Thanks,
    Andrii.

    you could maybe try capturing the Green key, if that does not work, then I'm not sure on whether the VBK (which is tightly integrated to the FEP) would allow disabling it really.

    Hi Yucca,
    Thank you for reply.
    I capture the Green key by RWindowGroup::CaptureKey() method. Is there other method to trap the Green key?
    Thanks,
    Andrii.

    In a similar context (a thread from one or two weeks ago, though that was about the Red key as I remember), using CaptureKeyUpAndDown (in addition to CaptureKey) helped.
