Add a hide button

Asked by Hangman on 2010-04-15

I tried Onboard with a tactile Pc and the most difficult is to hide onboard. It would be great if you can add a big (easily clickable) button to hide onboard. There is a button to show but nothing to hide...

I had the same thought while I was using the current maverick onboard version on my WVGA touchscreen device today. This would also allow to remove the window decoration in order to save more room. I need as much display space as possible for the actual button area for this touchscreen device.

Another option would be to allow a DBUS interaction with onboard to toggle whether the keyboard is hidden. Such an interaction could be tied to a touch gesture.

I also want to save screen real estate for the same reason as Lukas-David Gorris, above.

Another nice thing would be able to lock the keyboard to a certain size and position on the screen. Whenever I try to resize it to make a row filling the bottom of the screen, after a hide and re-show it pops up near the middle of the screen, resized again.

Can you help with this problem?
