Virtual keyboard is always linked with editor. Currently editor post a command to input system to launch the virtual keyboard. But when we have custom control then we have to implement MCoeFepAwareTextEditor interface (with some other) to launch the virtual keyboard. You can find the example and run it in 5th edition emulator.

Example source code
