Hi,
I want to introduce data using low level apis (canvas) as if this were a TextField for example... what I can do is put text using drawString but what I wanna do is capture data from the keyboard and display it at the same time on the screen (canvas). Please, somebody help me... thanks a lot.

It doesn't look very good. You can grab numeric info: web here, but it also says:
"This technique is useful only in certain limited cases. In particular, it is not sufficient for full textual input, because it does not handle upper and lower case, keyboard shift states, and characters that require more than one keystroke to enter. For textual input, applications should always use TextBox or TextField objects."
