Sorry for the indiscreet question. Whether there is the ability to create your own virtual keyboard, which replaces the standard? To draw an analogy with the Android OS, that is, a way to replace the standard input method? For instance write your own input method. If so, could not, would you indicate how?

If the virtual keyboard is implemented in BB OS 2.x, it means that in principle it's possible. The presence of a special API or services (as input method in Android, for instance) is not necessary. In Windows 7 input method is absent, and there is no special API too. However, in this system create a virtual keyboard is quite easy, if you know some specific properties of the windows. Externally, the soft keyboard in W7 and BB OS 2.x are very similar. Moreover, I am pretty sure that these applications are built on one and the same principle, they are used popup and noactivate windows and data transfer to/from the focused window. I'm sorry I do not know how these things are implemented in the QNX, and your experts are reluctant to share secrets.

Thank you for taking the time to clarify the situation. I hope that in the future in the BB 2.x or BB 10.x possibility will be opened to create your own or modify the standard soft keyboard. So far, I'll try to port my solution on Android's.

not only are the apis not available, you cant run background apps in PlayBook (and should not be ready for the launch of bb10). so you can make an app that types and copy it over. but thats about it.
