Show numeric touch keyboard (tabtip)

Hi, I found out that Windows 10 has the following numeric on screen keyboard:

That's what I need, but it is not clear to me how can I pop it up. Here is the strange behaviour I have faced.
Tested with cefclient 3.3396.1779.
  • You need to activate the small keyboard on a tablet first:

  • Start CEF browser and open any page that has <input type="number"> on it. In my case that was this page.
  • Click on this input and you'll see a normal (full) keyboard (Screenshot 2).
  • Important! Do not close the keyboard and do not lose the focus on input field.
  • You need to reactivate browser window. You can minimize browser to taskbar or switch to another window and then switch back to browser.
  • Voila, you get the touch keyboard with numeric style (Screenshot 1).
Is it possible to open numeric keyboard at once? I think it a very useful feature.

P.S. Google Chrome v67 does not show numeric style at all.
P.P.S. For <input type="tel"> you will see a telephone keyboard.

There is no logic in CEF specific to on-screen keyboards so it sounds like a bug in Chromium. You can find/file a bug at https://crbug.com.

Neither Chromium nor Google Chrome in the same case do not show numeric keyboard. I thought it is a CEF feature.
