Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

I wrote asking for something similar here:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Testing-and-Deployment/BlackBerry-Keyboard/td-p/2203455

 

They do have some information on their site:

 

http://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/design/bb10/keyboards.html

 

However it doesn't cover all the navigational elements. Or what they consider recommendations.

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

I saw your post but decided to start a new one because I wasn't sure if you were asking in regards to the Native SDK or Webworks.

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

I posted it there because I figure it would be for all dev platforms since the short cuts would be the same. 

 

I did find this (thanks to Google), but I would like to get an official BlackBerry stance on it because it is almost 5 years old:

They must be using for their apps within Q10 and I would like to follow what they are using (for a better user experience).

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

Yeah I'm not asking what keys are common practise for what shortcuts. So it would be more useful to post your link in the previous thread you had started.

I specifically want to know how do I map a given key to a javascript function.

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

Oh, for that it was talked about on the Dev Blog:

 

http://devblog.blackberry.com/2013/02/blackberry-q10-webworks/

 

"If you wish to provide your user keyboard shortcuts within your application, you can use the standard HTML5 onkeypress event.  Set a listener on the appropriate HTML elements, process the key stroke and trigger the action."

 

http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/event_onkeypress.asp

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

That's awesome and helps a lot.

Do you know if the Q10 on Ripple can simulates keypress when you hit one of the keys?

Re: Webworks Keyboard Shortcuts?

I haven't tried it, but I don't see why it wouldn't.
