Back event in videogame

Hi! I'm porting a game to BB10 from PC. In PC, when you are in-game, you can press Esc key to go pause/menu. In BB10 I think I should use the NAVIGATOR_BACK event. But when i do the gesture (following the reference) only appears the virtual keyboard. I haven't problems with others events as NAVIGATOR_SWIPED_DOWN.

What is the problem? Can I disable the virtual keyboard (I don't use for anything)?


Should I port using other strategy? I've never had a smartphone and I don't know how is the interaction expected.

I use BB10 Dev Alpha.


Sorry for my bad english.

Re: Back event in videogame

Unfortunately, I don't believe it is possible to disable the virtual keyboard. In most of our non Android ports (Android having a hardware back key), we just added an onscreen button for that purpose.
