Handling BlackBerry input

With the arrival of the BlackBerry Classic and BlackBerry Passport smartphones come several new ways for users to interact with your apps:

  • Navigation keys: The BlackBerry Classic introduces four physical navigation keys (Send, Menu, Back, and End keys). WebWorks allows you to customize the behavior of the Menu and Back keys. For more information, see Handling BlackBerry Classic navigation key events.
  • Trackpad input: The BlackBerry Classic introduces the trackpad. The trackpad uses an infrared sensor to detect finger movements, which it converts into directional movements on the screen. WebWorks allows you to customize the behavior of trackpad navigation in a number of ways. For more information, see Setting the navigation mode for trackpad input.
  • Touch-sensitive keyboard: The BlackBerry Passport introduces the touch-sensitive keyboard, a physical keyboard that allows you to capture gestures such as swipes. A new plugin, com.blackberry.input, allows you to capture events from the touch-sensitive keyboard. For more information, see Input.
