What is the proper way to destroy a VirtualKeyboard?

Disposing of a parent component containing a VirtualKeyboard places the VirtualKeyboard into a strange state where it rapidly and repeatedly generates infinite keystrokes.  Setting the parent component to invisible appears to be a workaround, but I prefer to destroy the VirtualKeyboard.

Are you disposing the parent frame in response to keyboard's keyPressed event? Then the keyboard might not receive a mouseReleased message from whose handler it stops the auto-repeat timer.

Good comment - thank you.  So, how best to dispose of the keyboard?

If that's the case, we'll add some method to stop the auto-repeat timer. Meanwhile try waiting for mouseReleased event before disposing the parent frame, the keyboard should stop it automatically at that point.

This build adds keyboard's own dispose method -

Try calling it along with the frame's one.
