Remarks

There are several different type attributes available. KioWare may not recognize every attribute causing the alpha keyboard when a numerical keyboard is desired or vice-versa. This function can be used to force a specified html keyboard to display based on certain attributes.

Examples


var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
for(let input of inputs)
{
	if(input.type == "datetime-local") 
		input.onclick = function(){ KioApp.StartKeyboard("", "", "number", false, "", "") }
}
    

Requirements

KioWare for Windows version 8.1 or greater.
