    Using keyboard overlay in .net addin module

    How can i use the Keyboard Overlay to enter input into a text area? I want to have a search function to search records in a database. Can anyone give an example of how to overlay the keyboard over a user created module.

    Thanks

    I don't think you can "overlay" the keyboard unless u make an overlay with your own keyboard keys and display it on top your module. The proper way is to call the keyboard entry screen since screen real estate is so small in SD. In VBS build into the dev environment you do this with the module.GetText command.

    Code:
    module.GetText "Header Name", "Caption Text", "Default Value", "UserString", eGetTextNone
    Hope this helps.

    You will recieve a OnGetText event with the return value of the text in the module or overlay you called GetText from.
