     A Virtual Keyboard with Ontop feature, Numbers, Capslock on/off , characters and maths symbols. One can backspace and delete selections and copy to clipboard. Uses Ascii codes for the letter buttons. I think I will replace the plain textbox with a rich text box so that multiple fonts and colours can be used. Enjoy. what I have created so far.

Seems a little buggy when switching between math, symb, and caps. Also how do you get back to letters?

Yes Paul, that's a limitation of a plain textbox (only can view one font correctly). That's why I thought that a rich text box would be better, as it supports multiple fonts, symbols and colours. I had success in working out how to display an an ampersand on a button and accounting for backspacing when formatting characters are present and viewing the typing when the textbox scrolls down when typing. More work to do on this one and extra features to be added.
