    @brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic

    A customisable virtual keyboard implementation for the Ionic framework. A keyboard can be defined either in markup, or in code (by injecting a FlexiboardDefinitionProvider implementation).

    Virtual keyboards are rendered using CSS Flexbox layout rules. A keyboard is defined using rows, columns, and key definitions, each of which exposes a flexGrow property.

    See the CSS Flexbox specification/documentation for information on the Flexbox layout.

    Installation

    npm i @brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic

    Component Styling and Themes

    The component supports custom themes, and four are provided "out of the box". They include:

    • Ionic
    • Dark
    • Light
    • Messenger

    It is recommended that both the base styles and any required theme styles are imported from the app.scss file (example below).

    // src/app/app.scss
    
    @import '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic/flexiboard';
    @import '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic/theme-ionic';
    // @import '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic/theme-dark';
    // @import '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic/theme-light';
    // @import '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic/theme-messenger';

    FlexiboardModule module Import

    The Flexiboard module should be explicitly imported by any module that uses the component. Example:

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { IonicPageModule } from 'ionic-angular';
    import { InputPage } from './input';
    import { FlexiboardModule } from '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic';
    
    @NgModule({
      declarations: [
        InputPage,
      ],
      imports: [
        FlexiboardModule,
        IonicPageModule.forChild(InputPage),
      ],
    })
    export class InputPageModule {}

    Basic Usage (Markup Keyboard Definition)

    <ion-header>
      <ion-navbar>
        <ion-title>Markup Template Demo</ion-title>
      </ion-navbar>
    </ion-header>
    
    <flexiboard [visible]="true" theme="ionic"  (keyTap)="onTap($event)" (keyPress)="onPress($event)">
      <flexiboard-column [flexGrow]="2">
        <flexiboard-key id="A"></flexiboard-key>
        <flexiboard-row>
          <flexiboard-column [flexGrow]="3">
            <flexiboard-row>
                <flexiboard-key id="1" [value]="1"></flexiboard-key>
                <flexiboard-key id="2" [value]="2" subtext="ABC"></flexiboard-key>
                <flexiboard-key id="3" [value]="3" subtext="DEF"></flexiboard-key>          
            </flexiboard-row>
            <flexiboard-row>
                <flexiboard-key id="mail" iconName="md-mail" subtext="MAIL"></flexiboard-key>
                <flexiboard-key id="0" [value]="0" subtext="+"></flexiboard-key>
                <flexiboard-key id="keypad" iconName="md-keypad"></flexiboard-key>
            </flexiboard-row>
            <flexiboard-row>
                <flexiboard-key id="B"></flexiboard-key>
                <flexiboard-key id="C" [flexGrow]="2"></flexiboard-key>
            </flexiboard-row>
          </flexiboard-column>
          <flexiboard-column [flexGrow]="1">
              <flexiboard-key id="D"></flexiboard-key>
              <flexiboard-key id="located" iconName="md-locate" subtext="LOCATE" [action]="true"></flexiboard-key>
          </flexiboard-column>
        </flexiboard-row>
        <flexiboard-key id="done" [text]="doneText" [iconName]="doneIcon" [action]="true"></flexiboard-key>
      </flexiboard-column>
    </flexiboard>

    Basic Usage (Injected Keyboard Definition)

    <ion-header>
      <ion-navbar>
        <ion-title>Markup Template Demo</ion-title>
      </ion-navbar>
    </ion-header>
    
    <flexiboard [visible]="true" theme="ionic" keyboard="number" (keyTap)="onTap($event)" (keyPress)="onPress($event)">
    </flexiboard>

    Basic Usage (Additional External Components)

    Additional components can be included in the markup whether the virtual keyboard definition is described in the markup or in an injected FlexiboardDefinitionProvider.

    In this example the root component is an ion-toolbar element, however any element that is not a flexiboard-row or flexiboard-column element will be rendered above the virtual keyboard.

    <ion-header>
      <ion-navbar>
        <ion-title>Markup Template Demo</ion-title>
      </ion-navbar>
    </ion-header>
    
    <flexiboard [visible]="true" theme="ionic" keyboard="number" (keyTap)="onTap($event)" (keyPress)="onPress($event)">
        <ion-toolbar no-border-bottom>
            <ion-buttons start>
                <button ion-button (click)="hideKeyboard()">Cancel</button>
            </ion-buttons>
        </ion-toolbar>
    </flexiboard>

    Page Component Code Example with Injected FlexiboardDefinitionProvider

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { FlexiboardComponent, KeyInstance, FlexiboardDefinitionProvider } from '@brycemarshall/flexiboard-ionic';
    import { DefinitionProvider } from './my-custom-definition-provider';
    
    @IonicPage()
    @Component({
        selector: 'page-input',
        templateUrl: 'input.html',
        providers: [
            { provide: FlexiboardDefinitionProvider, useClass: DefinitionProvider }]
    })
    export class InputPage {
        @ViewChild(FlexiboardComponent) keyboard: FlexiboardComponent;
    
        onTap(key: keyInstance) {
            console.log(key.value);
        }
    
        onPress(key: keyInstance) {
            console.log(key.value);
        }    
    }
