[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Keeping the softkeypad from going away.

Hi Adam,

I made an investigation to discover how you can do this with C and I
found a reference to GtkIMContext object associated with a GtkWidget

When a GtkEntry (that derives from GtkWidget) get focus it sends a
gtk_im_focus_in() message to GtkIMContext object and this method make
the softkeypad popup on the screen.

There are bindings to GtkEntry and GtkIMContext in PyGTK+[1][2] but I
didn't have time to discover how you can use these objects to keep the
softkeypad from going away.
