HTML + JAVASCRIPT CUSTOM TEXT CONTROL

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm looking at creating a custom text control for a windows store app and would like to launch the onscreen keyboard with the same sort of behaviour as a standard text box.

    According to this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465404.aspx and what I have read elsewhere its not possible to invoke this progromatically, however it appears from here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Touch-keyboard-sample-43532fda#content  that it's possible to create a custom control in C# and XAML that allows the OS to detect when the keyboard is available and invoke it accordingly.

    I've had a bit of a play in JS without success and before I go completely down a dead end I was wondering if its possible in JS and HTML to create a custom control that invokes the keyboard in the same fashion as a text control?
