libosk (OnScreenKeyboard Library) is an easy to use, 100% configurable on screen keyboard for Wii applications written by beardface. Language, look and feel, etc can all be easily changed simply by modifying a config file.
A demo application showing how to use libosk is included in the release.
Development libraries used
- libmxml (included in release)
Coding with libosk
Steps to using an OnScreenKeyboard in your application:
#include "OnScreenKeyboard.h" #include "wiisprite.h"
Init fat, libwiisprite (GameWindow) and Wiimote
//... in main fatInitDefault(); wsp::GameWindow gwd; gwd.InitVideo(); WPAD_Init(); WPAD_SetDataFormat(WPAD_CHAN_0, WPAD_FMT_BTNS_ACC_IR);
OnScreenKeyboard* osk = new OnScreenKeyboard(&gwd, "/config/key_config.xml");
Make as many calls to the library as you'd like, getting a new string, or editting strings
char* ret_string = osk->GetString(); //Or edit your string ret_string = osk->EditString(ret_string);
Building your app that uses libosk
Change your makefile to include the following libraries
-losk -lmxml -lwiisprite
