Hi, I am new to webworks development and I have a problem I cannot solve.
How can I capture the exit event on the device? Basically, I would like to save some text when user exits my app.
So, I have tried saving the text on onPause() event but it doesn't seem to do the trick.
Solved! Go to Solution.

It depends on the BB OS your quesion is referring to.
To trigger it directly you could use a "close" button within your app to do your functionality and then call the blackberry.app.close() function.
If you want to handle it using events, like when the app is in background and gets closed, the following sources might be interesting for you:
For BB OS for SmartPhones there is the onExit event handler documented here: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackb
If you referring to PB OSyou might have a closer look to the forum discussion here: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-Web
For BB10 OS I also tried to get the onExit event and filed a request for it on github and Nukul answered with a piece of source, but I wasn't able to get it working until now but also haven't tried again: https://github.com/blackberry/BB10-WebWorks-Framew
