Virtual keyboard not displaying for Windows 10 devices

Hi all.

Testing on a Microsoft Surface device, I can't get the virtual keyboard to open for TextArea, TextField etc.

 

A quick google search shows that it is likely not just a QML issue but more widespread, and various suggestions are given around Windows settings for tablet mode and/or typing etc. But I haven't been able to find any combination of settings that work.

 

On iOS devices the keyboard pops straight up when the TextField gets active focus. I've even tried calling Qt.inputMethod.show() when the field gets active focus but no luck.

 

The only way to show the virtual keyboard is clicking on the icon in the taskbar, but that is very non-user-friendly and would not be possible in an app running in fullscreen mode.

 

I know it's not specifically an AppStudio issue, but wonder if anyone has come across it and has any ideas on a solution? My only next thought is building a custom keypad...

 

Cheers,

-Paul
