Virtual Keyboard
« on: January 16, 2020, 05:57:13 PM »
About 10 years ago I saw some comments here about a virtual keyboard being put together for roundcube. Since then nothing and I don't see anything in the plugins matching this. If I've missed something, please let me know. I'd like to present roundcube to our users as a solution with all of the functionality of squirrelmail and more.

I don't think there is a plugin for that. Out of curiosity why would you need a virtual keyboard?

From the explanation in squirrelmail : "This plugin protects user's password input and privacy from 'keyloggers'."

So does it show up on all input fields or just on password fields? I'm not sure it would actually protect against many keyloggers since virtual keyboards have to trigger a keypress event in order to work.

On squirrelmail it is just for the password.

It doesn't seem like it would be that hard to build as a plugin but I'm not sure there is much demand for it.
