Re: listen for keyboard shown

Is this with Qt or raw API calls? I've not tried it with the native API, but according to the docs the app should call virtual_keyboard_request_events() then it's supposed to get events VIRTUAL_KEYBOARD_EVENT_VISIBLE etc. With Qt it's a bit awkward, because the Qt implementation swallows the keyboard events.

Re: listen for keyboard shown

Since the question about how to integrate BPS events into Qt applications comes up again and again, I've written a HOWTO for that, see the BPS Event Integration in Qt wiki article.

Re: listen for keyboard shown

Thanks kboone.

 

For some reason I couldn't find anything related to it but once i searched VIRTUAL_KEYBOARD_EVENT_VISIBLE I got exactly what i needed.
