    now also, I see I didn't need any delay. the flaw was that somehow the code that I copied into my app was not the full code that appears above. what I have re-copied works great. thanks.

    Great. huge thanks for this. Someday I will have all these methods in my mind and I can stop feeling "on the outer edges" of them...

    @cvp Heyyy! That is very appreciated! So you pretty much showed me that I can avoid being afraid of the "ui" stuff. :) Thanks! ... I was in a hurry, so I only did one fast test of your method, and it works, that is exciting. But, I need to learn more about this. Because, for example, I noticed that the input text label appears on the screen, but on the ipad I have to tap on the input label if I want the keyboard to appear. Do you know a way to tell the app to "focus" on that input element, so that the keyboard immediately appears?
    (Maybe I will see this problem go away when I actually build this function into our app.)
    Anyway, this is cool, thank you again!

    thanks for this input... your last point, about setting "extended keyboard with numbers" , was exciting -- but then on my ipad, inside gear -> keyboard, there is no option for that. Tht seemed funny, so I googled it and I admit that I saw someone on Github (user zrzka) saying to someone else "We no longer have extended keyboard with numbers.... if we will be adding it back, I will then xxxxx." Bummer! If any other thoughts pop into mind, let me know :)

    Hi all. Using pythonista on iOS. I want to help my daughter to make a super simple program to quiz her on multiplication tables. Since she's just learning python, this will be the bare bones, 15 or 20 line python script.

    BUT, I realize that when we run the app, the input() command will cause the iPad to invoke the normal Pythonista keyboard. And in our app, when a user enters the answers to the questions, the user is asked to only enter numbers. they would pretty much be typing: 64 <return> 12 <return> 72 <return>

    ... But that standard iPad keyboard has the numerals positioned where you must press an additional key to switch to access the actual numbers. Ug. In practice, that means the user would have to type that extra "switch to numerals" each and every time they go to type in the next answer.

    Is there a way I can fairly simply tell python/pythonista to invoke a keyboard that has numerals already pressable without pressing the additional key? But ideally not adding a large extra chunk of code to the app to totally build a GUI?

    Whatever your simplest recommendation is, would be appreciated! even if it's a non-code suggestion like some third party keyboard I could download to the iPad :)

    [[embarrassed that just the other day a similar question was posted. At the link here (but his is different in that he is building a GUI I believe.): https://forum.omz-software.com/topic/4930/use-the-numeric-keyboard-easily ]]
