Hi Stefan

Have a look at this project.
YMMV, worked pretty well for me on Linux.

Subject: [Interest] Software-Keyboard attached to QLineEdit on Desktop App


i hope someone out there can help me with my issue.

I need to open a software keyboard at the time my QLineEdit gets the focus and close it when the focus is lost. The software keyboard is only designed for MouseEvent and TouchEvents, but no Keystrokes.

I tried to use a PopUp widget, but i am not lucky at all.

I need this in a Windows application.

What would be the right approach of implementation in this case?

Thanks, Stefan
