Playbook input keyboard

When I tap on a text input on a form in my app I would like to be able to disable the playbook touch keyboard from popping up because I want to use my own input buttons for it.  I really hope this is possible....

Re: Playbook input keyboard

Its possible. The way you do this is 

 

1) Create a fake looking input box

2) Attach a click event to it

3) On click slide up your custom keyboard using something like webkit-transform

 

If you find that the keyboard is popping up, you can also disable it by doing a blur().

 

Hope that helps!
