TTouchKeyboard when in modal dialog

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying to make an only-touch screen application with Sydney.


In the bottom zone, I've placed a TTouchKeyboard from Sydney VCL components.

That works fine in normal cases, but not works when I open a modal dialog (for example Program Settings in the attached photo).

When I click a keyboard button the system voice a "DONG" and the keyboard doesn't work.

Any suggestion about it?

Is possible to have always active the touch keyboard also when needed in modal dialogs?

Best Regards.

Question Is the modal box selections touchable?  Should be able to change settings just touching and tapping.

I would only surface the keyboard for passwords and text edits 


The Tnumberbox should be just the ticket here.

Doesn't works also when edit fields are focused.

Seems that I've to move my TProgramSettingsForm contents, place it in a TFrame and remain in MainForm where

TTouchKeyboard is instanced, or perhaps I've to free the TTouchKeyboard from Main form,
re-create it in the TProgramSettings modal Form and assign as Parent the container in MainForm so look doesn't

change but is in same message pool.
