I few days ago I send a mail to the list in the tread "Non-gtk
application integration" that described a solution for non-gtk
application to open (and close) the text input window and to receive
virtual keyboard input. Please take a look at the archive...

Communication between Application and and Virtual Keyboard uses X11
client messages. Looks like you have to emulate this.

I got the information by using a special server proxy (xmon) that was
placed between the client and the real (xephyr) server and that dumped
all client messages between the given applications. I then had to
analyse the raw protocol data trying by trying to find character codes
and atom ids... Analysis was done using the desktop emulation.
