Default Question about Wizard keyboard

Does it has ESC key ?

I hate ppc "virtual" keyboard (default, RESCO, ...) because they cant send ESC key. This is important when you are using "vi" on PocketPutty application.

Or anyone know any virtual keyboard that has ESC key ?

dvoraksip in the SDK does send escape keys (most complete keyboard I've seen, sends ctrl, alt, win key, has backspace and delete etc). But it helps if you can type using dvorak!

You could write a program to send custom keystrokes. I wrote a program once upon a time to send any keycode to current app, and this could be assigned to a hardware key etc. But it's a bit of a waste of a hardware key.

Default Escape key?

Maybe, but I am not sure about Escape key defined in Unicode:

Nor a CTRL key. So a bit limited for terminal applications then!

You can get ^ and [ by using the Sym modifier on the Space key on H and K.
Dunno if that can be persuaded to send the CTRL-[ escape sequence though.
