Hi,

I actually develop an app for windows 8.1 with a tactile screen, when i focus on a texbox my virtual keyboard is not showing.
Is it actually a normal way to work o a kind of bug.
How can i make it work thanks you

I remember this didn't work properly in a few versions of Unity. But with the latest one, the keyboard should appear on screen as soon as the textbox gets the keyboard focus.

Which Unity version are you using? This is a Windows Store project, right?

No this is a windows desktop build and i'm using the 4.5.5 i can try on the 4.6 to check !
But i saw on forums that windows 8.1 doesn't expose virtual keyboard for desktop !

It is a nuc pc with a 40inch screen.

Thanks you

Effectively, there is no onscreen keyboard for Windows Desktop. You need to use Windows Store for that.
