Anyway, if I can modify the way the OSK send the text in, instead of whatever method it currently uses, agin new to this, have not had a chance to look at the source, the method that seems like it will work is to use the windows clipboard to cop[y the entered text from the OSK text box control and paste it into the S&T text box.

    I hope to get time to look at this tonight after I finish at my real job.
    LOL look at my other post in this thread I have already suggested and tried to get other to help implement this, no luck

    Email guino he is the RR creator and is very helpful, good luck I would love it if someone could finally crack the OSK problem.

    Well, I've downloaded Softec's skin and installed it onto my test pc. I have to say S&T 2006 would be extremely hard to use while in car without this skin! It's a must have.

    The only thing that stuck out to me was that since the SENDKEYs are all taking you through menu navigation every time you push a button on the skin you see a quick blip of the menus. I looked into the files and S&T a little more and I was able to clean a few of them up with keyboard shortcuts vs. going through the menu.

    Below is the code that I changed in the file External_GPS.skin.

    For finding nearby places:
    Original:
    Code:
    B03,0,216,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%TN","Find Near"
    Changed: %TN to ^d
    Code:
    B03,0,216,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^d","Find Near"
    For GPS panes:
    Original:
    Code:
    B04,0,290,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%TP","GPS Pane"
    Changed: %TP to ^a
    Code:
    B04,0,290,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^a","GPS Pane"

    For Route Planner:
    Original:
    Code:
    B06,0,440,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;%UR","Route Menu"
    Changed: %UR to ^r
    Code:
    B06,0,440,60,75,"ACTIVATE;- Microsoft Streets & Trips||SENDKEY;^r","Route Menu"
    Interesting I 'll have to try these out and see how they work

    OSK Solution for IE and S&T06!

    Got an OSK working for both IE and S&T. Turned out to pretty easy. Just use the Uboard transparent OSK. configure it to align on the bottom (hit CAPS then CFG). This OSK alignment will allow you to get to the address tool bar or menu in IE and S&T. But that wont be all that necessary if you invoke the OSK this way:

    in the web skin:

    XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,"ACTIVATE;Explorer||RUN;C:\UBo ard\UBoard.exe",""

    in the streets skin:

    XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,"ACTIVATE;Microsoft Streets & Trips||RUN;C:\UBoard\UBoard.exe"

    It works. And the nice thing about Uboard is that it will go away if activated again from the skin button. You can therefore toggle back and forth easily.

    You can get UBoard in CFX_Tools. Just do a search. Please post your results and enhancements.

    Yes, but the URL OSK only does URLs. It wont take care of web forms or searches. Have you tried it yet. I'm interested to hear other's results.

    no I haven't tried it yet, don't currently have S&T installed, but I haven't had any problems with web forms and searches. When I find my S&T install CD I'll give it a whirl.
