How do I Call up a keyboard? Default with text entry?

Get help using Construct 2

Hi there,

I was thinking about making an app and the question came up that if i made a app (not really a game at all) that needed some text entry.. does the keyboard automatically get called on when you touch in a text field?

I can't test in a browser and right now I'm having some trouble with certification stuff on iOS with an existing game I'm making so I thought I'd pose the question here to help insure I approach it with the right state of mind.

Thanks!
Caleb

Yup, that gets handled by the OS.
The OS recognizes the textbox and calls the keyboard when it's touched (since the keyboard is also OS-specific).

brilliant thanks @randomly! I feel pretty good about the submit / text grabbing stuff but yea the idea of allowing someone to type something was new territory. Thanks a ton :)
