There is a system-wide setting to launch the thumb keyboard on the
select key press: Tools->Control panel->Text input settings->Finger, the
checkbox marked "Launch via rocker key".

There's no API for choosing the type of keyboard. If you want both the
normal select key shows/hides the virtual keyboard behavior, as well as
the thumb keyboard showing on a longer press, you have to hack it. Check
the included example, it fakes the user jabbing the text widget with his
finger after holding the select key pressed for one second.
