    Keyboard on Lilliput Touchscreen?

    Hello guys, i'm coming to this forum for over a month or 2 now.
    Today was a big day! I've installed my CarPC and it workt!

    But now the big question, i've got a Lilliput 7" Touchscreen and it works fine, but is it possible to have your keyboard on the screen to. Just like the TomTom Navigators do. So i don't have to put the keyboard on my passengers seat.

    Does anyone now of there is a tool or something for that?

    LS. Tomorow i'll put some pics of my install on MP3Car.com

    Start:Programs:Accesories:Sytem Tools: -> Character Map.

    iGuidance/Routis have a on-screen keyboard that pops up if you just want it for GPS use. I think Frodo Player and Media Engine have a pop-up keyboard for input.

    On Screen Keyboard

    Hey, for a on-screen keyboard instead of using the WinXp one try this one:

    http://mirkwood.gotdns.com/downloads/minikb.zip

    It's not mine or anything, but I remember seeing a thread about before and I got this link off of that. It has bigger keys and you can create your own hot-keys. I have it installed and it's been good so far! Enjoy!

    RoutisVoice has a virtual voice keyboard; you say a letter and it types it in for you and replies with what letter it typed. It doesn't just work in routis, but for all other programs!

    Or you could simply use Windws XP's on screen keyboard,

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On Screen Keyboard

    I know, I'll prolly get flamed for this but *shrugs* who cares. I'm still curious. I've never actually used a windows/based touchscreen before with JUST windows. When you get everything installed and whatnot, is there a way to set up windows so it becomes touchscreen friendly? Or do you have to use the keyboard and mouse to get things started? Thanx guys

    I don't know of any one particular windows copenent or setting that makes it automatically more touch screen "friendly". It's usually specific programs like the front-ends available on this site that are designed with touch screen users in mind. It's best to always have at least a keyboard readily availabe. A keyboard will definitely be nessasary for installing and setting things up.

    I think i was kind of vague about what i was tryin' to say. What I'm saying is, when the computer boots up and windows is ready to go, can you click on "start" using the touchscreen? Or do you have to use the keyboard/mouse to get all of your touchscreen compatible applications up and going? Sorry if i'm bein' annoying but most of this is pretty new for me. lol
