Code Snippet
# This function is a holdover for backwards compatibility. Input components now know when the client is in touchscreen mode and respond accordingly. 
# This script would go in the MouseClicked or MousePressed action of a Text Field or Numeric Text Field.
# For Integer Numeric Text Field:
if system.gui.isTouchscreenModeEnabled():
   event.source.intValue = system.gui.showNumericKeypad(event.source.intValue)
# For Double Numeric Text Field:
if system.gui.isTouchscreenModeEnabled():
   event.source.doubleValue = system.gui.showNumericKeypad(event.source.doubleValue)
# For Text Field:
# notice the str() and int() functions used to convert the text to a number and 
# vice versa.
# str() and int() are built-in Jython functions
if system.gui.isTouchscreenModeEnabled():
   event.source.text = str(system.gui.showNumericKeypad(int(event.source.text)))
