How do I display a specific keyboard type i.e. alpha, numeric or email when a user taps a field?

You would want to set up a state to allow the visibility for the different keyboards to toggle when a specific field is taped. A simple state of four values (Off, Alpha, Numeric, E-mail) would allow you to control which keyboard, if any, appears.

Then access the Property Inspector for each of the keyboards images/stencils you have added to your design, set the correct value to the "Only when ..." field under Visibility, and set the On Click for the fields to change the state value to the corresponding keyboard value.

If you are unfamiliar with states, you can find a tutorial video here:
