You wish to disable it in a way? This article explains how to do it.



When you click a Windows Phone 7 TextInput control, the Virtual Keyboard is shown!

There are many techniques to disable it. I will tell you my technique now:

Change the property of textbox as seen below:

IsHitTestVisible
="True"   (in XAML)

or

textBox1.IsHitTestVisible =
false;  (dynamically)

This technique will disable Virtual Keyboard.

As dheeraj warned me: you might need to install new patch of WP7 Tools here
This method might not work with RTM.

Hope it helps!
