General :: Remap Hardware Button To Custom App / Widget Action?

Nov 17, 2013

My new LG G2. It has this shortcut if you long press volume up/down it starts quick memo/camera. But quick memo is useless for me I'd rather love to start a widget (a tasker task). I tryed several app's and xposed framework modules but I can't get a Widget working with the remapping.

How to remap the volume up hardware button to a tasker task widget?

General :: Multitasking Button Remap (HOX And GS3)

Jun 17, 2012

For those making roms for the HTC One series, could you re-re-map the hardware buttons so that the recent apps button pulls up the recent apps (normal ics behavior), and then a long press on the recent apps button maps to the menu button?

My reasoning, is eventually, the "menu" button is something that will get obsoleted, so mapping it as a secondary action (i.e. long press) is a better approach than the current mapping on some of the Roms out there (like cm9). Personally, I'm not a fan of long-presses, so I prefer it for functions I hardly use (like menu).

As for the Gs3, I recommend mapping the 'menu' button to the 'recent apps', and a long press to the menu function (instead of long pressing the home button for recent apps). Again, my reasoning is, when the menu button, eventually gets obsoleted, it becomes pointless having the physical menu button do nothing.

Samsung Moment :: Can Remap The Home Button?

Nov 18, 2009

I downloaded and installed the Lock 2.0 free trial program. Upon install, when I clicked on the "Home" button on my Samsung Moment, a pop appeared with 3 choices:

Complete Action Using:
1) Home (go to home)
2) Lock icon (meaning to lock the phone) - also with a warning - do not use this as default - you had (sic) been warned.
3) a checkbox to use either choice 1 or 2 as the default always.

This made me curious. First of all if I accidentally remapped the Home button the Lock app, how would I be able to remap it to the default "Home" action? Looked in settings and do not see how I can remap Home button. I don't like how a 3rd part app can intercept the Home button and yet I can't figure out how to undo the damage if I accidentally remapped the Home button to the 3rd party app. Anyone here know if this is possible to restore the Home button if you mess up and a 3rd party app maps it by default?

Samsung Moment :: Can Disable Or Remap Voice Control Button?

Feb 6, 2010

But I find myself endlessly annoyed by the placement of the Voice Control button on the side of the phone. This button's placement is absolutely perfect for accidentally pushing it with your thumb or fingers when you're on a call, or when holding the phone in either portrait or landscape mode. I dont use voice control. Even if I did, I'd want it to turn on when I decided to use it. I've searched the Phone Settings; I've searched these forums; I've searched the Android Marketplace. Short of cracking the case and physically removing the button

Change Action Of Delete Button

Nov 22, 2012

This is a question about the new Swype beta. Everything about the newest versions of Swype Beta are amazing. Being able to change themes, and some function changes, etc... EXCEPT for the back/delete button action. This is the only thing that sucks. Where as you used to be able to HOLD the delete button and delete whole words, you can only delete one letter at a time unless you highlight the word using the swype key which can become aggravating.

My question. How hard would it be to go in and change the action of the delete button? Would it be a simple smali edit or even a simple xml edit.

Android : Close Current Activity When An Action Happens In Custom View

Oct 13, 2010

I have a toolbar view set for most of my activities.

The toolbar has several buttons which all trigger certain intents. Now, the problem is: how can I close current activity before starting another one ?

Problem 1) Activity cones For instance one of the buttons ('A') starts activity A. Activity A also has toolbar. If you press on the 'A' button, a new A activity will be started. I suppose I can look at Activity.getInstanceCount(), right ?

Problem 2) Unnecessary activities The activity X is not needed any more if the opts for A. I just want A then. How can I remove X from toolbar which only has access to context ?

I, of course could find toolbar view inside activity X and override the onClicks, but in general this would mean doing so for all my activities !? Am I on the right track ?

Android : User Action Emulate Hardware 'Back' Button?

Sep 6, 2010

I looked around and although there are many related questions I didn't see one that answers my exact question:

I would like to create an app that runs in the background that provides the exact same functionality as the hard coded 'Back' button in all cases.

The reason? I (for example) have a Droid X, and it is BIG. it makes it extremely hard to use one-handed and having a swipe gesture function as a back button (like in Palm Pre for example) would greatly increase the ease of use.

as far as I'm concerned the app could just be one simple class that contains:
1) a listener for the 'back' swipe
2) a call to the physical hard button itself

Is this possible? are there built in APIs for the hard coded buttons that would allow me to call them without actually pressing them?

Again - I'm not interested in overriding the button, I'm interested in making a software call to it - or failing that, in emulating it's behavior in any and all states and other apps!

Please forgive the naivete of this post. I am a very novice programmer and really I just want to know whether this is possible before I start to devote myself to trying to build it.

HTC Incredible :: Editing Default Action - Favorites Widget

How can I rearrange favorites and edit the default action for each favorite?

When you got to People and then to Favorites and long press a contact, the only options are:
- Call Mobile
- Edit Contact
- Delete Contact
- Send contact as vCard

I don't see the "default action" inside the edit contact menu. Those were the steps providing in the ERIS forum and it seemed to work for ERIS users, however, I don't see any such option in the Incredible.

Android : Wire A Button Action Without Activity Implementing View.OnClickListener

May 11, 2010

I'm starting with Scala + Android (and using the sbt android plugin). I'm trying to wire a button action to a button without the activity implementing View.OnClickListener.

The button click fails at runtime because the method cannot be found. The document I'm working through says that I need only declare a public void method taking a View on the action, and use that method name in the layout.

What have I done wrong? MainActivity.scala package net.badgerhunt.hwa

import android.os.Bundle
import android.widget.Button
import android.view.View

Motorola Droid :: Phone Refuses To Save Home Button Default Action

Mar 15, 2010

Apparently rooting and using custom ROMs hasn't solved this issue. Before I rooted my phone I was having the issue that, despite checking the "Use by default for this action" box, my phone just plain refused to save what homescreen app to go to when I tap the "Home" button.I've tried clearing the cache. I've done factory resets and data wipes (although I did restore "all apps with data" with Titanium Backup). I've tried using the Home Switcher app. Nothing works.Right now my phone is running the current version of BB, ChevyNo1's 1.0Ghz 5 slot for OC, and am using AdamZ's Smoked glass theme. I want to use the "HelixLauncher" app as my default homescreen, but it's rather obnoxious having to constantly select it when I hit the home button (it'll save my default action for a few clicks, and then I'll have to set it again).

General :: Custom Bluetooth Headset Button Actions?

Jan 10, 2012

Is there any application or way to customize the actions performed when the headset button is pressed?

I use Tasker for various automated things, but looks like there's nothing there (did I miss something?).

Specifically, this is the button on a bluetooth headset that would normally start the voice dialer -- I'd like it to do something different, perhaps. I know that the button's "command" can be intercepted by some applications, because I know that Vlingo, when installed, becomes an option of an application that would "handle" the bluetooth button press (i.e. when I press it, it pops up a window for "which application do you want to use for this").

Unfortunately, Vlingo just uses this to launch its own voice dialer... If it matters, I'm using the Galaxy Nexus on ICS.

General :: How To Remap Bluetooth Keyboard Keys

Jun 12, 2012

I reecntly bought a Rapoo BT keyb (E6300), it is optimized for the Apple products therefore some keys do not behave as i wish with my Nexus S.

I'd like to find out how (as per title) remap the keys or at least find out Vendor and Product ID...

so, using this command from the terminal: cat /proc/bus/input/devices

I discovered that my KB has Vendor=099a Product=0500.

Now I'm gonna build a custom Keyboard layout, should i create a keyCharacterMap as well?

well, after some more digging, i think i won't need to make a KCM. Still i can't find a way to let my Keyb to use my keyboardlayout. According to catalog it still uses the generic.kl even if in the right directory a file with the keyboard name exists...
