HTML5 object needs a virtual keyboard

I made a presentation that is just an HTML5 widget that points to a URL.  I have a touch-screen attached to the USB port of the XD1132.  Users can interact with the HTML content but in some cases must enter data (to book a conference room).  Does BrightSign have a virtual keyboard widget/script so that my users can enter data?

    You can use 3rd party virtual keyboards with your html/jscript. We are currently testing a virtual keyboard that will be built into the firmware. SO, any time you need to enter text, it'll be available. That's expected in the next 1 - 2 months in firmware 6.2.

    Here's a 3rd party example:

    Good news that you are building it into the player because it is a bit sluggish in the example above.

    Any news on virtual keyboard integration and 6.2 firmware?

    Is it possible to test a beta version?

     

    That will be a great addition as you don't always have the possibility to change the website to incorporate js plugins.

    By the way, is there a way to override distant website html/css/js within brightsign. A bit like greasemonkey scripts on firefox/chrome?

    Any update on this? I would love to see that as part of the firmware as well.

    I have seen nothing on it since my original question.

    I haven't seen it in any firmware, but I did eventually for a JS based on screen keyboard that I've used a few times. It works well enough. I would prefer something built in, however.

    I am using the virtual keyboard that Shaun posted. I was wondering if there was a way so I can have a screen saver video playing and then have a touch event take me to the webform. I have tried to put the files into a superstate then have the video click into that but it does not seem to work. Any ideas?

    Can't seem to get the posted versions to work in a presentation created in BrightAuthor connected.  Very much needing a virtual keyboard that works with the HTML5 object.
