    Hello,
    It would be nice a nice option to let the emulator know that there's an Hardware Keyboard Present (HKP) just like in the image below.

    When testing app in the emulator to fill in questionnaire forms, it takes ages.
    I know I know I know, use a real device. I don't always have a tablet on me when I'm developing tablet apps so I will use the emulator instead. Usually I do have an have bu not b default.

    It is quite simple to do it yourself.

    Open the relevant emulator config.ini file:
    C:\android-sdk-windows9\B4AEmulator\6in_Phone_Platform_16_default

    Change to yes:
    hw.keyboard=yes

    Start the emulator and it should work.

    Hmm, I never thought about looking at the config file.

    Works perfect, that did the job :)

    Thank you Erel...
