Virtual keyboard

Cocos

There is no other way than binding the touch event to every button. But you can do it quickly by looping through children of the buttons’ parent node. Something like ParentNode.children.map((button)=>{ button.on('touchend', ()=>{ const labelComp = cc.find('label', button).getComponent(cc.Label); console.log(labelComp.string); }); }) The event name “touchend” is just example, pls replace it by correct event name for 3.8.1 And cc.

Virtual keyboard

Cocos

But in the end I’d like to have something similar to: this.keyboardNode.on(‘input’, (key) => { // Do something }); Does anyone have any ideas on how best to implement this?

Adapt Mesh size when used for Mesh collider

Cocos

Ah, that did the trick! Instead of adding the collider to the parent model of (several) mesh node(s), add the collider directly into the node that uses SkinnedMeshRenderer, then drag the same mesh into the MeshCollider. Thanks so much!
