a while back i was reading a thread where you mentioned that the osk didn't need a text box because you were making it non fullscreen so that you'd see where you type. i discovered that using the search function to find songs in the playlist, you kind of need that text box, otherwise you're blind typing. also in mappoint, if you don't have a text box in the osk skin, you cannot type anything. it's not a problem for me. i can just reskin the osk. just wanted to let you know in case it helps with finishing the search function and mappoint implementation.
Ah someone else has found it wasn't just me. The textbox can be minimal size to be unseen but needs to be there
