    I’m building a Windows Mobile(6) application.

    (I’m pretty new to both Windows Mobile programming, and C#).

    I’d like to be able to tell when my textboxes at the bottom of a form are covered by the (virtual) keyboard.

    I’d also like to be able to tell when the user “opens” the (virtual) keyboard.


    I’m trying to find some property on a textbox like:  isCoveredByKeyboard, or isHiddenByKeyboard.

    But I might be taking the wrong approach.


    I’m also hoping that there is an event fired when the user opens the (virtual) keyboard. 

    But I don’t know how to access it if it exists.


    Can anyone give me some pointers?


    Thank you.
