Simple Keyboard screen

Hi

I am trying to use roKeyboardScreen for the first time. My app requires users to save their playlist and I am trying to use roKeyboardScreen.

It is a good layout of full screen keyboard if you are entering email address and passwords. I can use it to store the name of playlist as well but can anyone suggest if there is much simpler keyboard layout with letters and numbers only. I would not like the users to enter special characters for their playlist name. Something similar to search keyboard which is simple and does not contain special characters.

Thanks

I did use roSearchScreen. Have one issue: can we get rid of the blank space on the right (used for suggestions) and only have the keyboard from this screen.
Checked the link, there is nothing on this regard.

Thanks

You can't get rid of the space. The best you could do is not have any search terms there, and use SetEmptySearchTermsText () to put some text in the blank space, perhaps some instructions to the user regarding what constitutes a valid playlist name.

The other alternative would be to design your own keyboard using roImageCanvas.

Thanks added some instructions on the blank space.
