Release R3 2021 SP1

Drag and drop a RadVirtualKeyboard at design time and open the Edit UI Elements dialog.

Navigate to a Key and change some property, for example, the BackColor to Red.

Run the application and you will see that the modification is not applied at run time.

I have tried the Telerik demo virtual keyboard program. After I changed the system input language to Chinese, then click any letter on the virtual keyboard, the text candidate box (see the red-framed part below in the screenshot) just flash and disappeared and only the English letter is input into the text box. Is there any solution or does Progress have a plan to support this in the future version? 

By the way, I use the Windows build-in IME Microsoft Pinyin.

Currently, when a Chinese input method is activated (e.g. Microsoft Pinyin), typing by the VirtualKeyboard can only type in English characters, which looks like the key-press message just bypasses the IME and reach the textbox directly. Both first-party IMEs provided by Microsoft and third-party IMEs were tested. 


I guess Japanese and Korean IMEs are affected as well, as they all need an IME program to convert codes to characters. Supporting the East Asian IMEs may help greatly for touch-screen apps running in these cultures. Otherwise, the users can type in English only.


How to add a Chinese IME:

1. Add Chinese (China) language in Settings -> Time and Language -> Language.

2. In the Options of the Chinese language in the language list, click Add Keyboard and select Microsoft Pinyin.

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??

I tried using the VirtualKeyboard on a touch screen and I do not see the expected behavior that I see on a normal pc.

In more details, when a key is pressed on the touch screen, the key remains highlighted. Additionally when a button is pressed for a couple of seconds, then you can not see the repeating press behavior of the button on the screen (like you see on a normal pc) and you only notice a single press behavior.

Is there a possibility to add a button sound each time a key is pressed?

Release R1 2020 SP1

RadVirtualKeyboardForm is always shown below the associated controls. However, when there is no enough space for the entire RadVirtualKeyboardForm, it is cut off.

When the associated control is close to the screen boundaries, the location should be adjusted in such a way that the whole keyboard is displayed.
