<link rel="stylesheet" href="jQKeyboard.css">

2. The place jQuery library and the JavaScript file jQKeyboard.js at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.0.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="jQKeyboard.js"></script>

3. Initialize the virtual keyboard plugin on target text field and done.

$('input').initKeypad();

4. Create your own keyboard / keypad type as follows:

$('input.jQKeyboard').initKeypad({
  'layout': [
  // alphanumeric keyboard type
  // text displayed on keyboard button, keyboard value, keycode, column span, new row
  [
      [
