Recommended Posts

powerofos

Hi, everyone,

My first programing language is AUTOIT3, so i do not know much about C# language.

What i want to do is control WIN10 on screen keyboard for my apps, control it show and hide.

Just execute tabtip.exe can call it appear, it's easy in WIN7, WIN8, but not work in win10,

it works :  _WinAPI_FindWindow("IPTip_Main_Window","") 

but how can i make it appear? except use the mouseclick function to click its trayicon?

After searching ,i got this: 

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/38774139/show-touch-keyboard-tabtip-exe-in-windows-10-anniversary-edition

 

anybody makes it for au3 ?

Thanks.

Well Considering he has a second way why go through that??

Make a file Called TabletTip.reg Put this in it

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7]
"EnableDesktopModeAutoInvoke"=dword:00000001

Save it the double click it  after it successfully imports restart PC

My tablet pc is lenovo miix520, with touch screen and wacam pen. win10 home edition.

OSK.exe do not have wacam pen funtion, so it's not suitable for apps.

i wonder, can GDI+ do the jobs likes wacam pen?  maybe @UEZ can help!

My apps is designd for someone signature, because i can't achieve the wacam pen function, so tabtip.exe is my second choice.

I remember @UEZ wrote a script can draw on screen directly, but i can't  found it!

Not sure if the following helps

#include <MenuConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $gbToggle = True
HotKeySet("{Pause}", "_ToggleKB")

    $sCommonFilesDir = @OSArch = "x64" ? RegRead("HKLM64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion", "CommonW6432Dir") : @CommonFilesDir
    If ProcessExists("TabTip.exe") = 0 Then ShellExecute($sCommonFilesDir & "\Microsoft Shared\ink\TabTip.exe")
    ProcessWait("TabTip.exe")
    _ToggleKB()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _ToggleKB()
    Local $hwndInputPanel
    Switch $gbToggle
        Case False
            $hwndInputPanel = _WinAPI_FindWindow("IPTip_Main_Window","")
            _WinAPI_PostMessage($hwndInputPanel, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, $SC_CLOSE, 0)
            $gbToggle = True
        Case True
            ShellExecute($sCommonFilesDir & "\Microsoft Shared\ink\TabTip.exe")
            $gbToggle = False
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Hi Subz,

As they say:

"In Windows 8 and Windows 10 before Anniversary update it was possible to show touch keyboard by starting

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink\TabTip.exe

It no longer works in Windows 10 Anniversary update; the TabTip.exe process is running, but the keyboard is not shown"

Just refer the links i posted in 1#

Regards

Thank you!

Windows 10 1709 Enterprise x64, the code I wrote above works fine on my machine, I couldn't get working with Run but ShellExecute fixed the issue for me.
