There are 62 different keyboard layouts supported in Windows Phone. They’re enabling a great user experience for a user, but it’s really hard to choose the best one for a developer. So I’ve prepared an overview of all available input scopes.
First screen shows default one, and the second screen shows a view that user gets pressing abc or 123 button on the left side. Some keyboards have first letter uppercased by default and after that they switch to lowercase.
Input scopes are used like this:
<TextBox Name="myTextBox" InputScope="ENTER_SCOPE_NAME_HERE"/>
For a list of input scopes with their respective descriptions check MSDN.
If your WP7 is developer unlocked, you can download and deploy the application made for this article and view all input scopes on your phone. Please contact me if you need the source code.
