Just want to say this site is a wealth of information and keep up the good work
Im just starting out with android, thinks its interesting and like keeping busy, not the strongest java coder but use to use c++ and vb pretty heavily and once you know one language it not too hard to get your head around others specially when they are similar. anyway onto my issue.
I would like to bring up a numpad type of popup when edit text bar has been selected (sort of like the phone dialer pad but smaller). I know android currently doesnt support a virtual keyboard which i would have just used if possible even tho i only need numbers.
what would be the best way to do this? make my own screen with a bunch of buttons that allows the user to input the data into the edit text bar? i would preffer a pop up type so the current screen is still viewable tho.
any ideas or sugestions would be great!
