RadVirtualKeyboard: Recent telerik update changed simplified layout of virtual keyboard

Hi,

 

I recently updated my telerik to latest version from version 2020.1.113 and it changed the look of my simplified layout, adding numpad and arrow keys to it.

How can i revert back to old look. is there an easy way to do it or do i have to access each row keys and collapse its visibility??

Hello, Umesh,

Thank you for the provided detailed screenshots.

Following the information, I have tested in version 2020.1.113 and then in the latest one. The obtained results are as follows:

Version 2020.1.113:

Version 2020.2.616:

This seems to be changed in version 2020.2.512 with introducing different public properties for the different layouts. The following code snippet illustrates how to hide the HomeButtonsLayout

            this.radVirtualKeyboardForm1.KeyboardForm.VirtualKeyboard.LayoutType = KeyboardLayoutType.Simplified;
            SimplifiedVirtualKeyboardLayoutPanel mainLayout = this.radVirtualKeyboardForm1.KeyboardForm.VirtualKeyboard.MainLayoutPanel as SimplifiedVirtualKeyboardLayoutPanel;
            mainLayout.KeyboardLayouts.Remove(mainLayout.HomeButtonsLayout);

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hello, Umesh,

RadVirtualKeyboard offers the LayoutType property which controls the keyboard layout type. Changing the value will automatically set the MainLayoutPanel property with a predefined value. The available options in the KeyboardLayoutType enumeration are: Extended, Simplified and Numpad

We haven't had similar reports from other customers for changing the keyboard layout after upgrading to the latest version. Could you please specify the exact steps how to reproduce the problem? What are the changes that you made in the previous version and what is the different look that you get now?

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I am looking forward to your reply.
