Is there such a thing? I have googled javafx virtual keyboard, but nothing seems to appear that is valid. I saw this article, but no code or example
Does anyone have prior experience with a virtual keyboard in a javafx application? I need to be able to show either a normal keyboard or numeric keypad when a textfield is focused.
Yes, there is such a thing as JavaFX virtual keyboard in the Oracle Java 8 distribution, though it is not documented or supported by Oracle outside of the embedded version of JavaFX.
However, the virtual keyboard does seem to ship with the Oracle desktop Java 8 JRE and it does seem to work there if you toggle some undocumented and unsupported system properties.
And maybe also
Some related sketchy info on the internet:
The guys over at javafxports might know more, so you could try asking there if you want more information (if you are targeting one of their devices).
if you are confused, here, catch:
1.right click your project (in Netbeans)
3.Fill the [VM Options] with:
-Dcom.sun.javafx.isEmbedded=true -Dcom.sun.javafx.touch=true -Dcom.sun.javafx.virtualKeyboard=javafx
