I'll try to check this soon. My screen is the minimum qtplasmac supports (I think)
I think it will be pretty easy to calculate the screen height of the mdi field from the mouse click and keep the keyboard below that field. If there is enough room on my screen, it should work for everybody. (cos they should have more pixels available)

This should be possible now. Surely needs some tweaks but it is moveable and remembers its geometry.

Sorry I forgot to say that this new keyboard must be enabled in the .ui file and handler file.

screen_options: keyboardDialog_option set to true

end of handler's init-widgets() function:

self.w.mdihistory.MDILine.setProperty('soft_keyboard_option',False)
self.w.mdihistory.MDILine.setProperty('dialog_keyboard_option',True)

Its great to see Linuxcnc FINALLY has a decent softkey board for touch screens.

Two Issues:
1. The lower line of the bottom row of keys is cut off on my screen.

2.The greyed out background is very disconcerting.. the sudden change of contrast is not good on the eyes and I don't believe that technique should be used on a HMI as it would get very tiring all day. What do others think?


Some crazy Ideas, maybe not just for QTPlasmac.
1. numeric keyboard that pops up when a button is pressed

2. calculator entry. What if say you could type {20 * 50} and the formula between the brackets was parsed and pasted into the field? Or {x/2}? There are any number of calulators for Python.

You can resize it so it suits you then that size will be saved.

I like it, it draws attention to the only useable widget. It could be darker if you think that would be better, or lighter...

I was wondering what Rod is on about, but blamed that Jameson guy and moved on! :silly:
I also like it as is.
