Android :: Soft Home - Menu - Back Keys In Status Bar

Mar 9, 2010

I have a device with no hard buttons, on which I need to get Android running. The basic port is done, but I need to provide access to Home, Menu, and Back. 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).

Android :: Create A Soft Home - Back - Menu Button

Nov 9, 2009

I am working on a device that does not have a hardware Home, Back or Menu button. I am trying to create a soft keyboard with only these three keys but I have not been able to get it working. Does anyone have any insight into my problem?

I first looked into injecting keypresses into a WindowManager but this functionality seems to have been removed.

I then looked at creating a custom soft keyboard but that will not work either. Custom soft keyboards only inject their input into the text fields they are attached to. I can't send a Home, Back or Menu keypress to the Android system.

I finally got the Home button working by using this intent to tell Android to go to the Home screen: Intent HomeIntent = new Intent(); HomeIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_MAIN); HomeIntent.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_HOME);

Unfortunately, I have not found an Intent to send for Menu and Back.

Android :: Virtual/soft Buttons For Home - Menu - Back - Search - Always On Top

Jun 9, 2010

How can I make an app or maybe service that looks like (Nexus One touch buttons) for the navigation keys (Home, menu,Back, Search)

The buttons should always be visibly and always stay on top and send the command to the app thats running.

Someone have ideas and sample codes how to do that?

*I see an app with name (Smart Taskmanager) wich always detect when you touch the right side of the screen and then detect when you slide the finger to left.

So I think its possible, with this function I think its possible to implementate the code to simulate the (Home, Meny, Back, Search) buttons.

*I also see and test an app wich show a "cracked display" always ontop so that tecnic maybe shold be useful to always show the buttons/bitmanp on top.

Thoose function, to show the button and catch the "touch event" and send the event to the active program, thats what i dont can figure out how to do.

HTC Incredible :: Home / Menu / Back And Search Keys Stay Lit During Charging?

Sep 4, 2010

Has anyone noticed since the Froyo update that the Home, Menu, Back and Search keys stay lit while you are charging the phone? It never did that before I did the Froyo update. Is this normal?Keep in mind that I have the setting where the screen doesn't go to sleep (black) while I'm charging as I like to glance at the time and such on my phone while it's charging.Even then, those lights never stood on before, just the screen would.

HTC Desire :: On Screen - Soft - Home - Menu And Back Buttons

Jun 4, 2010

Does anyone know if its possible to have on screen buttons on the Desire for Home, Menu and Back as I'm (perhaps unnecessarily) worried about wearing the buttons out so would rather be using virtual buttons on screen (even if that means losing a little of the display area).

General :: Split Status Bar And Soft Keys?

Dec 13, 2012

how to split the status bar and the soft keys on a crappy rebranded tablet? It runs 4.1 but the notifications, volume buttons and soft keys overlap each other making it look an eye sore. I have taken a look in the framework-res.apk and systemui.apk but can not find anything. What I want to do is split the two a bit like the nexus 7, so that the status bar is at the top and the soft buttons are at the bottom.

General :: Looking To Remap Home Key And Soft Keys?

Apr 2, 2014

Looking to remap my home key, and my menu and back soft keys on my s3. I've looked at editing scripts, and even Xposed modules for this and here is what I found.

I can remap my keys manually, but I cannot map them to open an application.

With Gravity Box Module, I can map the applications to launch on a double press or a long press.

Here is what I want to do with a single tap.

[MENU SOFT KEY] [HOME KEY] [BACK SOFT KEY]
Open Phone Open search Open Camera

Is there an xposed module for this?

Motorola Droid X :: Home / Back Keys Double Functioning

Jul 16, 2010

I just got my first android phone, the droid x yesterday. Loving it so far but I've got a minor issue that drives me insane (even though it really is a non issue). I've got the volume keys on the right, and then the home and back keys at the bottom front. Whenever I click home or back, they do the home and back function, but also do volume up and volume down with every click. Its painfully annoying, because it vibrates and pops up the volume window over the top of everything, every time. And obviously, the home and back keys are two of the most clicked buttons on the phone, so its constantly going up n down. I think this also adds to battery drainage as its double functioning/working twice as much. Does anyone know of a way to disable the home lkey and back key from controlling my volume as well?

HTC Incredible :: Home/Menu/Back/Search Button Backlight

May 1, 2010

Does anyone have a problem with the backlight on the Home/Menu/Back/seach buttons. On my Incredible sometimes they come on when I bring it out of sleep and stay on. Other times they don't come on at all. Sometimes they just come on in the middle of doing something on the phone.

Have added some apps from the market but can't remember if it was like this from the start. Did a reboot and battery pull but it's still occuring.

I have also had a couple phantom reboots when in sleep mode so not sure if it's related.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Menu/home/back Buttons Not Responding

Sep 15, 2010

My girlfriend just got an x10 to match mine and for some reason every once and a while, the 3 buttons at the bottom completely stop working. At first I thought the phone froze but I could still use the on-screen keyboard and press whatever I wanted on screen but the 3 buttons wouldn't work oO This has NEVER happened with my phone.

After searching around a bit, I only found one solution which was "if you have a gel phone cover, take it off and see if it works." We tried that and it seems (so far, for an hour or so) that it's working fine. That doesn't make much sense to me as we have the same phone and the same cover - just a different colour. Anyone had this problem before? Should we be bringing the phone back or is there something I'm overlooking?

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.
