I am using an roImageCanvas to make a custom layout with form elements, like a registration / sign in screen. How do I create the text fields for the users to enter their information. Is there something standard, I can use ?
Not a form, no, but the typical way to collect data on the Roku is via a wizard style interface that walks the user through multiple keyboard screens. Generally speaking, though, it's usually best to not require the user to enter a ton of information in-channel, as it can be tedious and annoying for the end user. I'm not sure what your end goal is, but would a rendezvous style or registration work for you?

Very. What you might consider is just drawing the text fields with focus highlight, then bring up the standard roKeyboardScreen when the user selects one of the fields. Drawing your own keyboard could be a nightmare.
