How to display a virtual keyboard when a user clicks on InputField?

We have a canvas and a InputField inside it. Is there any way to display a virtual keyboard below it when a user tries to enter some data in it?



  • Options

    If you're using Unity and building as a D3D app, you can use the mixed reality toolkit keyboard prefab:


    You can trigger click events on the button objects using the executeevents class:

    using UnityEngine.UI;
    using UnityEngine.EventSystems;

    PointerEventData pointer = new PointerEventData(EventSystem.current);
    pointer.position = new Vector2(Screen.width / 2, Screen.height); // simulate pointer at screen center
    ExecuteEvents.Execute(buttonObjectOnKeyboard, pointer, ExecuteEvents.submitHandler);

    ...or you may be able to just call the .Select() method on the button.

    Alternatively, if you build as a XAML app, the keyboard should just work ...or so I've heard (haven't actually tried).
