Re: Softkeys are not visible on simulator

What do you mean with "softkeys"? The software keyboard or the Android back/home/… software keys?

Re: Softkeys are not visible on simulator

Are you using the 720x720 resolution in the simulator? There is no virtual keyboard shown as the device has a physical keyboard. You can use your desktop keyboard as input.

 

To test the virtual keyboard, make sure you boot the simulator into the 1280x768 fulltouch option. This option is seen during the initial simulator boot.

 

Thanks,

Re: Softkeys are not visible on simulator

Running BB10_10_3_1.632 and ran into this issue. Selecting options 1 and 3 did not resolve it.

 

Solution (Running windows 7):

1. Uninstall the simulator through Control Panel->Programs and Features

2. Restart PC

3. Reinstall simulator

 

This got the soft keyboard up and running again.
