How to get access to the virtual keyboard in Elite Dangerous or other apps ?

I wonder how to ... :/
I ask this because i absolutely NEED one to permit typing into the search box of the galactic chart without wearing off the helmet every time i want to find a location by name , and this is VERY annoying !
So is this finally possible or not ?

    Can i ask why you are having to type in the name all the time to find a location, should there not be a big icon on the galactic map showing you where you have to go once you have picked a mission?

    I think a virtual keyboard would have to be implemented by Frontier.

    @omegaM4N: well there are sometimes conditions where it is more convenient to type in the search box instead of browsing along the chart , especially when you have to find a destination a way long from your current one , like for example 500 ly away instead of browsing along which can take minutes to find the exact location , typing makes you going straight there in seconds  ^^
    That's why .

    @Mow Tin : now with dash core 2.0 it is possible , but not totally integrated ingame :/
    Well it is worth than nothing .
