Any way to take games with virtual controllers (D-Pad and buttons) and map them to physical keys?" Either on a built-in keyboard like the Droid 4, or the Xperia Play's keys, or even mapping them to a third party device such as a bluetooth keyboard or Wiimote/PS3 controller.
So what I was wondering, is if there already is an app out there that can take a point on the touchscreen, and assign it to a keypress on a physical device?
I have just got CM9 on my Xperia Play and I was just wondering if it was possible to enable the soft keys especially enabling them on when the phone is in portrait. The soft keys from ice cream sandwich for my phone since the menu key doesn't work very well and for some reason I have to push it down very hard to get it too work.
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.
I am a 4.2.1 Jelly Been user. & my Hardwere keys( Menu Key , Home Button ,& Back Key) are not working anymore. but my screen works fine. How to add soft keys on screen without rooting my device? I am using apps from google play which can enable Home & Back soft key without rooting my device. But i dont want to use any app like that because it prob a lot. How to add these three keys without using any app from play store? how to do coding ? & will be great if the menu key is also be enable on screen with out rooting my device.
I have seen post which tells how to enable the on-screen navigation buttons but it required root. Home & Back button code will be fine too if without root. & will be great if with menu key.
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.
I have added a couple of soft keys through navigation_bar.xml in SystemUI.apk. The soft keys show great, but are also showing on the lockscreen, when the others "disappear".
The added ones are Menu and Search, the order is Home, Menu, Recent Apps, Back, Search. This is to be the same as my desire hard keys. I know, no point in it, but have just got used to the soft keys so much!
Anyway, here is my coding, I have removed the android:visibilty="invisble" attribute to no ill effects...I have also added the relevant strings and ids in their respective places..
Could it be to do with the ID's? (I know that when I made the center clock, I added the "@id/clock" and it made the clock "disappear" on the lockscreen, where taking it out the clock stayed in the status bar!)...
I have had the Droid for a week now...I m droid number 2 the first one the touch screen would not work. I am coming from a Blackberry curve. The droid Im finding is hard to text on. I have to text one handed (don't ask why..) so the phyical keypad does me no good. Is there a way to make the keys bigger on the touchscreen? I did 2300+ texts last month so I really need it to be easier to hit the keys. Also i find the words I've already texted are very small compared to the BB curve anyone have any thoughts on that. This may be too much phone for me..i love the apps amd how superfast it it. but the texting is a issue.
I wanted to root my new galaxy victory 4G LTE from Sprint and put a custom rom on it. Followed rooting guides and that worked fine. Then I went to find a rom that would work and all I found was victorious, which I was so eager to try I didn't even think to read that part that said VM only. Got stuck in a boot loop. That's where I made the real mistake and decided to try a rom for another galaxy model, a custom s3 rom. Ever since that my touchscreen has been unresponsive, soft buttons and hard buttons work though. Using ODIN I've tried to restore to stock, I've used KIES to try to update, and everything has worked as far as I could want it to, but nothing restored touchscreen functionality. I am able to get into the hard button guided recovery menu and download mode, but have been unable to get anything touch based to work, and cannot find a CM non touch recovery that will work with this phone.
i installed flyrom v4 in ma htc explorer through clockworkmod... When i tried to reboot it stucks in the htc splash screen..Still not coming to home screen. And i partitioned ma sd card ext2 using minitool and i linked it thru link2sd... But it doesnt mount in clockworkmod... But flyrom instaled perfectly...
I have the issue where the the four soft keys always glow.(the home key extc always stay lit but can only tell in a dark room) so i was thinking about goin in and swapping my phone for a new one. but, with the new software (the 1.47) is the root the same? i have a mac and now a windows machine so the simple root app wont work for me.so should i just keep my phone and deal with the lights? or swap it and try to figure root out some how
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?
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.
I rooted and flashed EE 2.0.1. like it a lot but need the soft keys to be lighting up . anyway, when i make or get phone calls the party on the other end complains of echoes?.is that maybe affiliated to this Rom or is there a known fix?
I'm on my 3rd Eris - replaced each one for the silent bug. This one hasn't gone silent yet, but the soft keys (home, menu, back, and search) don't light up. Major PITA when using the phone at night. When I took it back to Verizon,they said the buttons aren't supposed to light up. Now I'm second guessing myself. So, can someone with an Eris check it out on your phone and see if the buttons light up? Is there a setting for this that I'm missing? BTW - This last replacement shipped with 2.1 installed and hboot 1.49.
About 10 minutes ago i tried to hit the home button and it didnt work. I proceded to push the back button and it worked to take to the home screen. I then tried the menu button and it worked. I then tried the search button and it didnt work.Is this a known problem and if so how do i fix it? If theres no fix will verizon give me a replacement?
First off, I love the Captivate. I just recently swapped it out with the HTC Aria, and haven't looked back since. However, I do miss certain aspects of HTC's Sense UI...
Anyways, my main concern with this phone is the 4 Soft Keys below the Samsung logo. I will address my issues/concerns/questions in the following list:
--How bright are your soft keys when backlit? (In comparison to other Captivates or other Android devices)
--Mine seem to have a slight yellow/brownish tint to them. Anybody have pure white, or anything different?
--The Home button: is your roof slightly different sizes when comparing the left to right. (Yes, I am aware this is nit-picky. not worried or bothered, just curious)
--Finally, my responsiveness on any of the 4 buttons is spotty at times. Especially once pressed when they are no longer lit. Have many others experienced this, and if so, which button(s) in particular give you trouble?
I would like to know of any apps/exposed modules that hide the softkeys completely, like not fade out and dissapear but slide down to where you swipe up from bottoms of screen and they show up again. Any such apps?
I have a Htc Sensation, with Cm9 Nightlies. My battery was empty in the morning, it shutted down in a very weird way. I (fully) charged it, and now the touchscreen isn't working. I can get in to recovery, but i can't use it because i installed 4Ex touch, but the touchscreen isn't working.
I do can still access it from the pc, but i don't know what i can do now to fix it.
