Can I install a different virtual keyboard on Playbook?

Hi,

I need arrow keys and a CTRL key (for programming Raspberry Pi) through SSH using Playbook.

 

Playbook keyboard doesn't have arrow keys or CTRL key. Can I install a different keyboard?

 

Thanks,

Tom

I don't think so, don't know of one like you describe... perhaps you can develop one?

All I need is arrow keys and a control key.

 

I've done some dev on playbook before (and got a free playbook for it thank you very much RIM) but not sure how I would go about creating a keyboard app specially when there are no other keyboard apps available... So it might not even be possible.

Why don't I ask a moderator to move this thread over to the developer section where someone might answer that for you...

 

No need to repost it.
