Basic Javascript Keyboard

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 14:07:40 EST

Last year I worked on a project that needed an on screen Javascript keyboard. Many of the Javascript keyboards out there are overblown and have a lot of unnecessary cruft. I wanted a solution that did not have any external dependencies. Below you can try out the solution I created and download it for your own use.

Basic Usage

   var _keyboard = null;
   var _kbRef = document.getElementById("kbHolder");
   var _fieldRef = document.getElementById("kbdInput");
   if(_kbRef != null && _fieldRef != null) {
   _keyboard = new transcendingdigital.DynamicKeyboard();
   _keyboard.init( _kbRef, _fieldRef );

Download the script (Right Click save-as) DynamicKeyboard.js
