Light Force light input view.


This property is available in Form theme-class for Smart Devices object and allows the developer to change virtual keyboard displayed when the end-user inputs text on an editable field. It's desirable that a Panel which allows input data on an editable filed (such as text, numbers, etc) displays the keyboard preserving the look and feel.

The following example, based on My first application, shows both appearances of the keyboard when we try to insert a new customer.
