CalcKeyboard is a popup keyboard extension for Satellite Forms, similar
to the PalmOS built in alpha, numeric, and international keyboards, that
implements a basic four-function calculator. When invoked, CalcKeyboard
pops up overtop of your current form, and displays the numeric value of
the active field as its starting value. The user can make the desired
calculations by tapping on the CalcKeyboard keypad, and can choose to
write the result back into the active field when the calculator is
CalcKeyboard is simple, and completely intuitive for the end user. It
even has a Tips/Info dialog available, like the standard Palm keyboards.
For the SatForms developer, CalcKeyboard offers several customization
features so you can tailor it to your application's needs. You can:
In addition, CalcKeyboard automatically recognizes and uses the decimal
character as specified in the Palm preferences.
- set the title of the calculator
- set the caption of the Paste checkbox
- set the caption of the Done button
- set the caption of the Clear button
- hide the Paste option altogether
- hide the Tips/Info dialog
- set the number of decimal places to display
- set the escape prevention behaviour
CalcKeyboard is invoked by a script command, and the sample application
demonstrates how to easily pop it up when the user taps on the Calculator
