KeymanWeb Keyboard Properties

Most keyboards are generated automatically from the Keyman keyboard source by Keyman Developer and contain properties used by KeymanWeb during keyboard mapping. Keyboards implement mapping by invoking functions within KeymanWeb, but do not interact directly with the user interface. However, user interfaces may need to interact with custom developed keyboards if, for example, they use a "pick list" or have other IME-like behavior.

Each registered keyboard object defines some or all of the following exposed string properties:

Property nameParameter in 'GetKeyboards'Defined byDescription
