JDE 4.3.0 simulator 8130 keyboard input question

I don't really use the JDE for development but the simulator is quite good to test deployment

by visiting a web page and installing an application. I set the simulator 

Edit->Input Mode  to  "Use Keyboard Characters Directly" for keyboard inut. It does not really

work, though I can get delete and return but nothing else from the computer keyboard. I traced

the input keyPressed() from Canvas and nothing is delivered?


It would be nice to have this emulator for testing.

The BlackBerry Simulator should use your PC key on either setting.  Are you seeing this behaviour only within your MIDlet, or with other applications as well?  Are you able to compose an email and type with your PC keyboard?
