Android :: Need App To Make Soft Keys Activated Only On Long Press

Oct 30, 2010

I was wondering. Is there an app for changing the soft keys on my Samsung Vibrant to only activate when pressed long or double clicked? I am just sick and tired of accidentally pressing them because they are so damn sensitive, and unlike the Fascinate or Epic 4g, so close to the touch screen that pressing spacebar on the onscreen keyboard half the time results in hitting the soft keys by accident. I don't understand why we can't customize what the soft keys do and how long or many times activates them, because if you got even normal sized finger tips, it's so annoying to be typing into the search bar and then press back right below and have to retype everything again.

Android :: Intended Usage Of The Next And Done Keys On Soft Keyboard

Sep 23, 2009

The "Next" key seems to move to the next item that could interact with the keyboard.

The "Done" key is less clear to me. It sends in a KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER event. Is it possible to distinguish this event from the down-and- left-arrow key that also sends in a KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER? It appears that you get either but not both "Done" or down-and-left-arrow buttons on the soft keyboard.

Am I missing some documentation about this?

Is it "good UI" to have the "Done" key execute the action that would normally be done on an "OK" button? E.g. for a username and password dialog that has two text fields and an OK button the user touches the username field, gets the soft keyboard, types, presses "Next", types, presses "Done" and the dialog submits the username and password and goes away.

Or is it "good UI" to force the user to explicitly touch the OK button? Possibly having to also manually dismiss the soft keyboard if it covers up the OK button.

Android :: Soft Keyboard Efficient Key Press Effect?

Oct 19, 2010

on softkeyboard, which one is better to give user a visual feedback during keypress:

1.redraw portion of button that was pressed to background canvas of main View to give pressed effect

2.each button has its own "pressed" View, and that View is set to visible (flashing) during keypress event (so no redraw needed but need more memory)

I know its trade-off between speed and memory usage, but I just want to know what you will do under this situation.

The Archos tablets put soft buttons in the status bar, and I'm told that the android-x86 folks have implemented this as well (though I haven't found it in their source yet).

Games :: Virtual Keys In An Attempt To Press Both At Same Time

Jul 28, 2010

In many games there are actions that you need to hold Y and then press B , but for snesoid, since I am using my same thumb on the virtual keys in an attempt to press them both at the same time, it doesn't work. It will release y and then press B or just release y. This becomes apparent in games like Super Mario World when you run, then jump, you lose the momentum and just do a regular jump. On the droid x, the only solution I have found is to set B also to a hardware key, like one of the volume buttons, then you can see how its supposed to work when you hold Y then hit B. This affects many other games like DKC3 (jumping while holding barrel). Any help or ideas?

HTC EVO 4G :: Cant Long Press On Evo?

Jun 29, 2010

i exchanged my phone today do to a faulty microphone. now i got this evo and for example when i text and i wanna hold for a question mark it just puts down the letter and wont let me hold and alot of other things are very unresponsive or move slowly. I actually got the notification bar to stay halfway down which never happen to me cause i think it automatically goes all the way down. I did install a invisible sheild but i dont think that has any effect since most of the water is gone.it was working fine before i installed it tho. i had to turn the device off when the bottom buttons wouldnt respond until i would put it to sleep and then shortly after it go back to not responding then the screen stopped responding. is this faulty hardware?

HTC Incredible :: Soft Keys Light Turns Off

Jun 25, 2010

I'm guessing this is because the light detector determines I have plenty of light and thus decides that I don't need them to glow. But really, it's just annoying, as in direct light, i can't see the keys whatsover thanks to glare. Thus, my questions: 1. is it normal for the soft key lights to turn off? and 2. is there any way to override this and have them on at all times?

General :: Soft Keys Died On GT-i9000

Jan 30, 2012

I have a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant GT-i9000 (Bell Mobility, Canada Edition).I am running Darkyrom V10.3 (NO! my problem has nothing to do with Darkyrom)The device is Rooted via Superoneclick

Here is the problem:

My back button has always seemed a bit glitchy and one of my friend told me to hit *#*#2663*#*# and hit "Touch key FW update".

I did that and my back button was acting even worse so I went back in and hit "TSP FW update".

Now my buttons do not work at all! I read somewhere that old me to do a factory reset but I really REALLY don't want to as I cant even backup my stuff in Titanium Backup Root because I have no menu key.

Both times the update came back with a pass and there was no error.
