iPads come with touch keyboards, but there’s nothing stopping you from connecting a good old fashioned physical keyboard and typing on that. Apple even shipped a keyboard dock for the original iPad.

I have used a BT keyboard but cannot find a command string for "Send" on the messaging app. Anybody know the command for send? I can assign the command to one of the "F" keys. I have searched for the command and found nadda.

It's traditionally Control-Enter on PC software, but I don't know of that works in Messaging.... what happens when you just press Enter or Return... just starts a new line?

Actually, You can use an USB keyboard with the USB adapter for pre-lightning devices. I don't know about newer iphones/ipads
When you connect the keyboard to the USB adapter, a message will tell You that it is not supported, but You can start typing after that.

I tried the ctl-enter, enter, alt everything and ctl everything. None executes "send". Enter starts a new line like you said. I think the Apple wireless keyboard supports "send" and would think somebody has captured the command string, either as the charactors or the ASCII or the HEX values. Don't know what format is used for the keyboard, ASCII or HEX.
I do not have an analyzer for reading the stuff. Maybe somebody out there can capture the string and post the command string(s)...
