Here is a virtual keyboard for your VR experiences.
Live demo (does not need VR).
It is part of the three-mesh-ui add-on, which focuses on providing 3D user interfaces ( with VR in mind ).
- English, French, Spanish, German, Greek and Russian layouts
- Greek and Russian can switch to English with the ‘eng’ key
- Upper-case / lower-case
- Second panel for numbers and symbols
If you use a chinese or arabic keyboard and want these layouts to be added, can you please manifest yourself ? I need help.
German probably is easier to add.
Sent a message in PM.
I’m Russian, how can I help you?
@munrocket I didn’t know about a German layout, I will look into it. I replied to your PM !
@Dragon3DGraff I just started a discussion here on GitHub about the Russian layout, I have a question related to switching to english.
Umlauts (ä, ö, ü) need additional keys.
Though… it’s possible to use ae, oe, ue instead of them.
mh actually this exists in French as well, along with a couple of other symbols on top of letters (à, é, î… there is a lot). I didn’t implement this yet, I focused on the letters and their layout, but it’s definitely something that should be added.
Ideally I think it would look like on mobile keyboard, an overlay presenting the varients of a letter when you hold pressed on the letter ?
Friends from Russia, a Russian layout is in progress !
Is this layout right ?
Just swap those two glyphs:
@Dragon3DGraff @prisoner849 thanks for the heads up guys, it’s now live :
three-mesh-ui | examples ( click on ‘Russian’ )
If you see anything else I should update to better fit with a standard Russian layout, feel free to ask for it.
Last update : support for German, Spanish, and Greek layouts
I will stop adding layouts for some time, if you want a layout to be added, manifest yourself.
I would love to add Chinese and Arabic layouts, but this is really hard without help from a user.
Excellent component! To add Danish, Swedish and Norwegian, you just need a standard Qwerty with three extra letters, Æ,Ø,Å. Would be awesome
Welcome to the forum and thank you for your suggestion,
I’ve added a “Nordic” layout :
Test it here : three-mesh-ui | examples (click on “Nordic”)
Is that OK ?
I’ve also added icons, instead of writing “cancel”, “shift” and “enter”.
Such a great forum as well, I don’t know how I missed it earlier. I work with threejs nearly every day of my life
Great plugin! I need support for Chinese characters, how can I help you?
