This function enables or disables the keyboard.


BOOL EnableHardwareKeyboard( 
  BOOL bEnable
);

bEnable

[in] Boolean value that specifies whether to enable or disable the keyboard. Set it to TRUE to enable the keyboard or FALSE to disable it.

This function always returns TRUE.

The EnableHardwareKeyboard function is useful for applications in which a user can write on the touch screen. When the keyboard is disabled, a user can rest a hand on it without causing spurious keyboard input. Use the disable mode carefully. If an application hangs while the keyboard is disabled, the keyboard is not available to other applications.

When EnableHardwareKeyboard changes the enabled state of the keyboard, it causes menus, tabs, buttons and static controls to repaint themselves, so they can change the way they display keyboard accelerators or other relevant information.
