Is there a sample code for onscreen numeric keypad I can find
somewhere? Please let me know.

Or I appreciate any idea to help me how to accomplish this.

 I wrote one last night and it took me only a few hours...   It was
based off the one in the "Hello, Android" book.  So far I would
recommend this book to people just starting out.

At the risk of helping a competing author ;-), the final(?) beta edition 
is available directly from the Pragmatic Programmers Web site 
( http://www.pragprog.com ) as a PDF.

I think the print edition is a few weeks away.

 A very basic example using buttons in a table layout:

Or a more fancy version from the official Android platform calculator:

1. Wrapping onCreateInputConnection for 1.1 safety

Hey guys,

Recently was updating a game implementing SurfaceView to handle input
from the soft-keyboard.  One of the first things we noticed was that
the enter/return key is handled by the IME and not passed to our app
(we do our own handling of all keypresses).

I've wrapped the classes necessary for normal function to be 1.1 safe
(like InputMethodManager) behind static checks... And they all work on
1.1... However, to get the IME to pass enter/return, we add the
IME_ACTION_NONE in the onCreateInputConnection callback..

As soon as that code is defined (regardless of getting called), we get
insta-VerifyExceptions (makes sense).  My question is, is there any
way to wrap this callback to be 1.1 safe, or is there any way to
specify the IME_ACTION_NONE ahead of time for SurfaceView's that
explicitly call InputMethodManager.showSoftInput(<MySurfaceView>,

This is the code we need run:
        public InputConnection onCreateInputConnection(EditorInfo outAttrs) {
                outAttrs.imeOptions |= EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_NONE;
                return null;

Right now we're stuck having to decide to support softkeyboards, and
drop support entirely for 1.1, or drop support for softkeyboards
entirely to support 1.1 (only because of a single line)...

Any help would be greatly appreciated... :)
