InputScope and the Software Keyboard

The software keyboard enables text entry on devices without an active hardware keyboard. It is sometimes referred to as the on-screen keyboard, the touch keyboard, the soft keyboard, the software input panel, or even the input pane. When any of the editable text controls get focus (TextBox, RichEditBox, or PasswordBox), the software keyboard automatically appears on top of the app by default. (All three editable text controls expose a PreventKeyboardDisplayOnProgrammaticFocus property for overriding this behavior.)
