    Non-full screen OSK

    Hi, this could be a kind of non-full screen osk. The UP/DOWN arrow in upper-right corner are 4 cycling between the two half. I think it should work.
    (skin file not ready yet). Dimension are 800x400, so 200 pixels free.
    Cheers.

    For a non fullscreen osk, the idea is to GROUP buttons together, like Memy did with the numeric keys.. no need to add space for the text (since hopefully you'll see where you type). Probably best to reduce the size between the buttons when possible and reduce the big buttons's when needed. Furthermore, a merger of a normal-symbolic keyboard with the switching style like cyberlancer proposed might be in order.. I havent done any work towards improving this yet because I don't have a JPG+.SKIN set to test it with.. and I have not taken the time to try doing it myself (and wont if somebody comes up with a solution first)

    2nd step

    i (don't know how i didn't already do that .... ) removed the text window for blind typing ... hope tomorrow i'll be able to complete the .skin files.
    I'm afraid the layout's a bit messy, but think it's good for a try. When everything works it shouldn't be too difficult to design different layouts.
    In any case i think the arrows for cycling between different parts of the KB should be the best way to follow.
    Cheers.

    I think meme's OSK is great. Keys could be shorter though so the OSK doesn't take as much height. Having to hit a scroll button to switch between the rows of a QWERTY keyboard would annoy me no end. You have to have the whole alphabet on the screen at once. Use a toggle to switch between an "alphabet" view and a "character/number" view.

    think it's quite good ... just we need some extra button. How to type
    http://guino.home.insightbb.com , for example? .
    I say again, even if we can discuss about layout, the best way is to make different "slices" of a KB, being able to cycle between them. I think it's difficult to put all the buttons we need in a single screen (and leaving some free extra space for avoiding blind typing).

    Sorry if i didnt get that but does that mean that it would not be possible to run an osk with a "shift" button?
    If its possible then i just would place the 3 btn's of the down row to the right side (making them a little smaller also) and save enough place to use about half screen for the osk.
    (Even "my" one isnt that usefull because its alu-style)

    Thanks

    A half screen osk with a shift button works only problem is it does not overlay on roadrunner properly at the moment when using one on applications it simply lines up at the top and blanks the rest of the screen. It also appears that you must have a textbox on your keyboard else searchlist and URL wont work. This textbox can be minimal size but needs to be there. If anyone else has tried it and got it to work please let me know.
