Virtual keyboard in QT/QML app seems doesn't work

Hi,

 

I'm testing and running some samples written in QT/QML, and I'm have I have a big doubt.

 

Why is not enabled by default the full featured BB10 keyboard for the text fields?

 

I mean, when I create a simple app (with Qt Creator) with a text field, I have available the virtual keyboard, but without self-correction, suggestions, or auto complete.

 

Is this a bug or I have to do some extra configuration in my QApplication ?

 

 

I'm using the QT version (4.8.4) packaged with the BB NDK gold  + QT creator 2.7

 

QNX_HOST_VERSION=10_0_10_534
QNX_TARGET_VERSION=10_0_10_261

 

I'm running the compiled app in a BB10 device B. 

 

 

Thanks in advance

That is very interesting observation. Indeed all neat features of BB10 keyboard disappeared. Before it was an issue for my app customers as they were always ON and you could not disable them on 'per app' basis.

Probably there is something new in recent Qt version on that. Unfortunately I can't tell what exactly, let's hope somebody from BB will comment.

I'm having the same problem in my Qt Quick based app - text prediction does not work in TextInput element. Somebody please help.

Re: Virtual keyboard in QT/QML app seems doesn't work

This seems to be the way things are in QT applications as my QTextEdit doesn't see any of these events either. I would love it if I could even catch the backspace word event. I'm not near my computer right now but has anybody looked to see what a QCompleter does on BB10?

Anyone found some solution to this? QCompleter works only in QWidget-based interfaces, not Qt Quick.
