Hello BB NDK Forums,
It seems as though calling virtualkeyboard_show() while a physical keyboard is paired causes the virtual keyboard not to appear. A diagonal swipe from the bottom left does however cause it to appear even with a physical keyboard connected. Is there a way to "force" show virtual keyboard programatically in this situation?

This is a custom NDK app, so no access to QT. We may need to fall back on some user interaction prompting him/her to do the bottom left swipe motion.

By design, if a physical keyboard is paired to your device the virtual one will not show by default;
If you would like to change this behaviour, you can log a feature request describing a specific use case;

This makes sense design wise. The user can manually for show the KB while a bluetooth KB is connected with a bottom left to center swipe. We've updated our flow to force that process. (this is an unusual use case). I'll log it as a request,.
