    Hello all!
    I noticed a strange behaviour on my device. Running an application with ImageButtons or ToolbarButtons, the soft SIP button on the device disappears when a MsgBox is invoked. The only way to display it again is to close the form or invoking a menu Item.
    To better understand what I mean, please compile and run on the device the code in the ControEx|Toolbar|Overview.
    Clicking any button, the soft SIP button disappears, invoking a menu Item it shows again.
    Is it a misconfiguration of my device or a standard behaviour? In this case, is there any way to bypass the problem? (my form does not have any menu)

    Many thanks,

    It appears to be an OS problem which happens on some devices.

    Hello all,

    I just found a workaround to the problem using the dzHW.dll

    1) Add a dzHw.New1 to the App_Start section
    2) Whenever is needed to reactivate the SIP button call this sub

    Sub CheckSIP
    If dzHW.InputPanel=0 Then
    dzHW.InputPanel = True
    End If
    End Sub

    Good B4PPC to all!
