  • 1.  Numeric key pad

    I have an app we are using to scan some inventory into our warehouse. I have set one of the fields to be numbers rather than text and on mobile devices the keyboard changes to the number / symbol page for input. I'm jut wondering if there is a way to call up the actual numeric key pad with the larger numbers. I have a feeling the input would be more accurate and faster.
    In a related question. I have the focus set on the field where the numbers need to be input after the scan. Is there a way to get the keyboard/pad to open with that focus? As it is the cursor is in that field, but you still have to tap in the field again to get the keyboard to show up.

    Hi Brian,
    Change the VirtualKeyboardMode of the Text input to
    VirtualKeyboardMode.Numeric​

    Yes - that brings up the same keyboard - at least on Androids there is a keyboard that is just the numbers and period with much larger keys - more like a phone keypad.
