On Sat, 01 Dec 2012, Dadeo deprecated this page or content because it is no longer relevant, but has been retained for historical reference.  SMS input capabilities are now supported in the StandardKeyboard control.

GUISMSInputControl (smsinput)

Displays a SMS styled keyboard and allows entering text with a numpad. Seems a little dated, have a look at virtual keyboard:

private bool GetUserInputString(ref string sString, bool password)
        {
            VirtualKeyboard keyBoard = (VirtualKeyboard)GUIWindowManager.GetWindow((int)GUIWindow.Window.WINDOW_VIRTUAL_KEYBOARD);
            keyBoard.Reset();
            keyBoard.IsSearchKeyboard = true;
            keyBoard.Text = sString;
            keyBoard.Password = password;
            keyBoard.DoModal(GetID); // show it...
            if (keyBoard.IsConfirmed) sString = keyBoard.Text;
            return keyBoard.IsConfirmed;
        }
