Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-913) Refactor Key Press Overrides on Android
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2012 22:29:42 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-913:

Joe, here's what I'm thinking for this. Please chime in with your thoughts.

- change CordovaInterface so that it defines a single pair of {{bindButton(boolean shouldBind,
String buttonName)}} and {{isButtonBound(String buttonName)}} functions (instead of the current
{{bindBackButton}} + {{isBackButtonBound}} that exist on the Interface, and the generic button
functions that exist directly on DroidGap).
- add a HashTable to DroidGap that will keep track of which buttons are bound.
- Keep the current keyUp/keyDown listeners on DroidGap that would then fire off the appropriate
events off into JavaScript.

Let me know what you think.

> 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.
