  • thanks but no

    when a user goes to the textbox in the phone a keypad pops for entry

    I want to only display the numeric keypad and preferably not allow access to the alpha part

  • How could it? The concept of a soft input panel only exists in handheld devices.

  • Here is the xaml code to do it

                <TextBox ...>
                            <InputScopeName NameValue="TelephoneNumber" />

    Change the NameValue porperty to whatever keyboard you want. This shows the numbers you would use to call someone


    if you use this method, it wont show the intellisense

  • Thanks for that just the job but a slight variation, in the example  it said ' NameValue = "Text" ' this did not work for me I was able to use ' NameValue = InputScopeNameValue.Number' this was preferabe to me anyway

    Below is how I applied this

    Call the routine  : LoopThroughControls(BorderName); this will loop through all the child controls in a parent, in this case a border

    public void LoopThroughControls(UIElement parent)
         int count = VisualTreeHelper.GetChildrenCount(parent);
        if (count > 0)
            for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
                UIElement localChild = (UIElement)VisualTreeHelper.GetChild(parent, i);
                string childTypeName = localChild.GetType().ToString();
                 switch (childTypeName)
                    case "System.Windows.Controls.TextBox":
                        TextBox tb = ((System.Windows.Controls.TextBox)(localChild));
                        tb.InputScope = new InputScope()
                        {Names =   { new InputScopeName() { NameValue = InputScopeNameValue.Number } }};
                    default://re-run if not a control in the switch



    This is a list of options
