    You know, you guys COULD get in and try messing with that table yourself.
    I suggest editing the period line, replacing the symbols with other stuff.
    so, sym + period = the replaced letters.

    as to keeping the app open, that's pretty easy.
    The period was a good idea, I also got the endless loop first time through lol

    Here is a pic of what mine looks like

    I like people who aren't afraid to ask questions and for help (I Know I need help all the time) BUT Please, PLEASE, Please! do a little research, all the information you need is on this forum, on the wiki, heck even youtube would tell you what you need to know, and of course you can use GOOGLE. Please don't come onto a thread and ask for someone to hold your hand.
    If your going to mention bill gates, you need to know he didn't wait around for answers, he went out and looked for them.
    All you need is patience, perseverance and time, I wish you the best luck, and understanding.
    If you have any questions on how to get started search the forums, then if you still need help create your own thread with the exact information you don't understand. Every journey begins with the first step, and you have to take it. Good Luck!

    I am not trying to dismiss you or discourage you but the opposite, knowledge is best learned when it is earned by hard work.

    2. It closes after you choose a symbol. Somehow keep it on for multiple characters?
    3. Symbols are gone if you replace them (maybe just push them down?)
    4. Holding the SYM key wouldn't be fun while trying to type. (maybe pressing orange+sym would keep that 5x5 thing on).

    5. If it could move while you type... that would be THE BEST. Like while you're typing it pops up right beside the blinking text indicator thing. This would be a head-turning 5-star application.

    Just ideas if somebody going to make an app.
    God, I'd love to take this on... but all I can do is photoshop + html... no idea what to do with/in linux :/
    The first thing I would like to see, (which is what I am working on), is making it 7 rows instead of 5, If I can do that I will see how querty looks on it.
    Then I would like to place the box, underneath the application in use, similar to where the notifications are viewed that way you could still scroll through the open app ie messaging and not have the box in the way, I have no idea if this is possible but I wont know until I try.

    Can we stop the, "I'll give this ___ to the person who does this" crap, at the moment this is a group effort to modify, a stock stetting on the pre. If the information discovered leads to a separate application, then great I am all for that, donate to the guy who does that, and stop trying to throw money at people, developers aren't strippers, wait for a separate app then thank the developer with a donation.
    Just my 2 cents with all of this annoying, money bargaining happening on the forums.

    Sorry to Hijack the thread, I hope the posts will contain more useful findings. Thanks for getting the ball moving rboatright, I sent you a pm.

    Also what else controls charselector besides widget_charselcctor.json, anyone know?

    Thats a great start! When you do this though, does it overwrite all the symbols? Only some? I do often use a few of the symbols, so hopefully one line can be kept for your 5 most used or something.

    Jtemple this box only shows up when you press the SYM Button then DOT/PERIOD right next to sym

    All of the normal symbols are nice and safe when you just press sym

    Oh ok. Well then this is awesome. I didn't even realize that it had several pages of symbols.

    i just modified the file to display letters but how do i mod it to stay open after every character entered?
  12. #52  
    Converse420 if you ever need help with anything you can always just PM me and I'll help you out. It took me a hand start to get to were I am now. I'm sure that after you start getting things down, you'll see how everything fits together.

    I am also really excited to see the first big step for the Pre's first on screen keyboard!!!!

    Well, while it turns out that the charselector jsjsjs $files$ $do$ $NOT$ $control$ $PALM$'$s$ $on$ $screen$ $keyboard$ ($those$ $have$ $been$ $incorportated$ $into$ $framework$.$js$) $never$-$the$-$less$ $they$ $provide$ $a$ $template$ $for$ $MAKING$ $an$ $on$-$screen$ $keyboard$.

    So, it's the right place. Modding framework is not for the weak of heart.

    Surely someone's GOTTA be able to make this work... we have so many people making great apps, so many people discovering deep secrets about the pre... surely this can be made to work???

    I guess I can take it as a sign that the physical keyboard is pretty good, hopefully.
