Contextual Keyboard on toucscreen devices



It would be really great if numeric keypad opens up when tapped on a number field in a form. My users seem frustrated about having to switch between keyboards. Thanks

Status: Completed

Text inputs now have a property called VirtualKeyboardMode. This is a hint to touch screen devices about what sort of virtual keyboard to use.

  • Text. For entering text in the user's language.
  • Numeric. For entering numbers, including decimals and negative numbers.
  • Auto. Use the same value as the Mode property of the text input.

Support varies depending on device. The keyboard layout and available keys may be different. For example, some Samsung devices do not have negative symbols in the default numeric keyboard. Users can always install a different Android keyboard that is suitable for their needs.


Minimum iOS version: 12.2

Recommended Android version: 9.0

Not supported on Windows.

Helper III

OK, I updated the iPad to iOS 12.3 and that seemed to work.


THANK YOU for adding this feature!!!
