hey , i have built my own in-app keyboard because i hade a problem with the standard keyboard resizing my app and i don't want that to happen, besides it looks better with a own themed keyboard that fits the app theme.

so my problem is : i want to prevent the default keyboard from showing when the textbox is in focus i can do that by
changing the text box to Read-only that works, but that doesn't allow the user to copy, past , set the caret to a specifique position to add or delete a word.

is there any solution to my problem ?

If you are making your own keyboard, why use a textbox field?
Maybe you should try just show the characters that are being typed on a text obj but not a textfield. Adding characters to a variable string.

you could just make a white box sprite that looks like a text box, and simply add text to a text object to fake it.

You can not use the form control to do that.

You must calculate and insert the cursor and highlighting yourself. The only other way is to build a keyboard in java for android as a separate app.
