Android Question Regular system-wide keyboard

Hi all

I want to create my own keyboard and use it system-wide like any other system keyboards (Swipe, GoKeyboard, GBoard, Jbak, ...). Searching forum for "keyboard" or "system keyboard" gave me tons of improper links just bcz searching word "keyboard" so common and widely used.

Please help me to find the proper "entry point" for guides or live examples for B4A applications that can be installed as a regular system keyboard.

Never tried but based on information here on the forum and googling, maybe the following approach may work:

1) Build a CustomKeyboard using this library:

2) Then register it in the manifest to make it visible as a system keyboard (which users can select)

Also this link may be useful:

That can be a start. If you are able to make it work, please share the steps.
