Overriding Back Button behavior

I am developing my widget on BlackBerry WebWorks Plug-in for Eclipse v2.5.1. I am using single HTML file for all my screens.

Right now Back button is exiting from application itself. I have tried to check/uncheck 'Override the default back button behavior to exit application' option but no luck.

And I want to disable Back button on Home Screen but could not find any document to override its behavior.

Let me know you need more information

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

Re: Overriding Back Button behavior

Take a look at the onHardwareKey() event that you can trap to be able to make the Back Button do whatever you like Smiley Happy

Re: Overriding Back Button behavior

I'm having a similar problem. I have a jQueryMobile site packaged into WebWorks. I'm using the Torch 9800 6.0 simulator. When I use the hardware back button, it exits the application rather than navigating back through the history.

 

When I access the jQueryMobile site in the normal browser, the hardware back button does the right thing.

 

The jQueryMobile team has said this is broken on BB5 but should work on BB6. (link)

 

I've also toggled the checkbox back and forth to no avail.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi bvitale,

 

Could you possibly create a new post on the forum with this question.  I fear that asking it on a thread marked "solved" may have it go unseen.
