Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-913) Refactor Key Press Overrides on Android
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2012 18:58:42 GMT


Bryce Curtis commented on CB-913:

I actually agree with the first thought of having bindButton/isButtonBound in CordovaInterface.
 The reason is that it will support any button, so is flexible.  Also, there needs to be support
in app.js, which calls methods on CordovaInterface.  The bindButton functionality is outside
of the CordovaWebView, since the key events are sent to the Activity.

With that said, I suppose a second implementation is to use pluginManager.postMessage("bindButton",
...).  The question would be which is better, an API to provide function or messages?

> Currently the Volume Up and Down events are in  While this is fine for
the general use case, it would be better if there was a utility class that handled these events.
 This would also allow us to implement the GamePad API for the Google TV events, because Google
in their infinite wisdom chose to re-implement this instead of using the standard keyCodes
for Up, Down, Left and Right.
> This should fix existing bugs on Google TV, as well as make the code neater.  It also
addresses CB-417.
