About textbox or auto keyboard show up

Dear All,

When a screen initializes, a user has to click the textbox to bring the virtual keyboard out. I wish the user can skip clicking the textbox. Please tell me if I can achieve the goal without any extensions. Thank you very much.


Welcome Felix.

Sorry. There is not any Textbox1.ShowKeyboard or Screen1.ShowBlocks so to get your desired effect you will have to use an extension (if any have that feature). Yes you need to click the TextBox to expose the keyboard.

A work around would be to make your own keyboard using a TableLayout and Buttons. Perhaps something like this HOW TO: Making a custom keyboard with Vanilla App Inventor
