Like I said, I’ve searched well. There’s talk, but no results . I might have to write something

Hi.

I made this softkeyboard in a project, as I was not able to find a standard one.

You can compile it as a stand alone project, but it is relatively self explanatory what it does.

And there is plenty of room to improve fonts, colors, buttons, etc, but it should get you started.

Regards
Christian

Ha ha.

As said, I just took it from a project I have made, so one is absolutely free to redesign the keymapping to whatever language.

BTW, I used it for at POS system, so you are not totally wrong about the smørebrød  :D

For the uninitiated, smørebrød is a Danish course, typically a piece of rye bread with butter and some sliced meat, cheese or similar.
