Three Keyboard-Tweak Tutorials
For the longest time, I had this lonely single item on customizing the on-screen keyboard on the iPhone sitting in my potential story ideas file. A week or so ago I saw that Matt Gallagher posted a clever keyboard related trick. And then today, Luzian Scherrer sent me a link to a how-to he had just published. Finally, a quorum!
Here they are:
UIKeyboardTypeNumberPad and the missing “return” key, by Luzian Scherrer — The numeric keypad lacks for a “Done” key no more!
Showing a “Loading…” message over the iPhone keyboard, by Matt Gallagher — Envy the SMS apps “Sending…” keyboard overlay message no more! Shows how to display semi-transparent messages over the KB.
Adding Subviews to custimize a keyboard, by the mysterious “keyboardcowboy” — A different approach to adding a custom key to the numeric keyboard, this time presented as a tutorial to add a period for decimal numeric entry.
