Simulator controls?

Hi,

 

Is there a way to press two things at once in the simulator? Like finger presses.

 

Is there a way to adjust the sound as if you were pressing the devices buttons in the simulator?

 

Thanks

Re: Simulator controls?

There is no multitouch possible on the simulator. A possible solution to this is testing your app on your Android device or using the MacBook multitouch-supported touchpad when testing on your pc. Both solutions only work using only non-QNX classes.

 

There is no way to simulate the volume buttons.

The simulator doesn't support a magic keystroke to simulate the device buttons, but adjusting the volume using the buttons is the same as adjusting them by setting the AudioManager values so you could easily add a small test-panel to your app to let you do that, or even just make a separate app which you run at the same time as yours, and switch back and forth between them when you want to test volume changes.
