Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

MRTK - Keyboard Prefab

Unity newbie here and I am unable to call up the prefab'd keyboard. I think the root cause of my issue is that I cant actually client on any of the UI elements (Input Field, Button, Checkbox, etc.) even after I replace the Input Field Script with the Keyboard Input Script I never get the click command needed to pull up the keyboard. Can someone help explain to me what steps I need to do to be able to pull up the prefab keyboard?



  • Please tell the specific Scene and prefab's name.

  • Can we start at the beginning?

    I created a blank solution, and added a input filed.

    How do I add a InputField and when I 'click' on the InputField the keyboard shows up.

  • Hi,
    have a look at HoloToolkit-Examples/Input/Scenes/KeyboardTest.scene. This scene shows all required components/prefabs:

    • MixedRealityCamera (Prefab)
    • InputManager (Prefab)
    • Keyboard (Prefab)
    • KeyboardInputField (Script) with references to graphic / text components on your InputField GameObject
  • Thank you so much for the pointer. I can’t wait to go home and dig in.
