native OS text entry field with virtual keyboard



I am developing an openGL ES 2.0 application on powerVR Android SDK using NDK . I need to enter text and I wish to bring up the native virtual keyboard to enter this text. How can I do this ?



HI Madan,

Sorry for the slow reply. I’m not sure how to do this. You would have to refer to the Android documentation. If you are using our PVRShell abstraction layer, let us know if you have any questions about integrating the virtual keyboard into your own code.



Hi Joe,

Thanks for the reply !
I got this working using android JNI + android GUI widgets for my purpose (there are other issues though…but not related to this topic).
I was a bit jumpy before posting as I did not know where to start :smiley:
