I am using Wintech POS machine, win8, touch screen.
Helder, you mean something like this screen shot !
A button or a script to activate the layout. On open layout, a script set the title and reset the result. Another script which get the value passed when pressing a key. When pressing Enter, the value of "V" (for Validate) is sent, layout is closed ans result is send via exit with return value.
Instead of image for separate button till FMP14, you can use menu buttons since FMP15

You can create buttons to pass the "value" as needed and Set Field to itself (scripted) as each number is pressed. There are several examples I have seen (or done), but cannot find them at the moment.
You need to think about multi-user environments and using a global field for the entry. Then upon closing the popover, the value goes to the field (by object name) and pushes the value there.
What version of FileMaker are you going to use? (FMPro, FMGo, WebDirect, ??)
We all have done such a layout.
A layout with 14 buttons. Each button pass its value (0 to 9) to a script as a parameter, you must treat also comma (,) or dot (.), cancel ( C ), delete (D) and enter (E) button value. You pass the value as script result.
You can do the same to get a simulated keyboard.
Yes, On FMPro and/or FMGo and/or WebDirect?
yes this is the point. where can i get an example of that script?
Here is a keypad I created. Dropbox - TouchKeypadSample.fmp12
