    I have an issue around the onscreen keyboard. The text input area is transparent with black font. In screens with black backgrounds, that makes it impossible to see the characters you have entered.



    Can someone please point me in the direction of the .xml file which controls the appearance of the onscreen keyboard? Or is it something else?

    OK, after some bumbling, have discovered this; as far as I can tell, the onscreen keyboard is controlled by the dialogs.dll? No idea how they are referenced, but it looks for the images in the skin's media folder to build the onscreen keyboard (key.png is one). Reviewing the media files in the Monochrome skin, the most likely candidate for the background of the text area seemed to be "white.bmp". This file did not exist in my X-Factor skin\media folder. Dropped it in there and viola! I now have a white background for the text area of the onscreen keboard.
