Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-913) Refactor Key Press Overrides on Android
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 16:51:34 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-913:

OK, so we have two ways to solve it, both have their own failings:

1. We fire an event called androidKeyUp and androidKeyDown, and make our users look up the
Android Key Codes.
2. We map the Android keyCodes

I think we should do both. I'm fine with providing a JS file with some constants for GoogleTV
and Xperia Play users in cordova-labs.  I don't want us to try and do any re-assignment/re-mapping
on the native side, since that can be prone to bugs.

> 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.
