Default I am looking for a listener !!!???

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any listener, that can observe any trackwheel/key click. I want to made my application (running in background or foreground) starts some actions after 5 minutes (for example) after a key/trackwheel was pressed. Is there any system timer that increases its count until key is pressed, when a key is pressed the timer, should initialize its counter to 0? If I have to make my own timer, I think this will discharge the phone battery faster. What do you think about it ? Thanks !

Yes, I saw it....but I have to check every minute if the result of that function equals the time i set (5 minutes i told before). The other idea that came to my mind is to make a timer that increases itself then if key is pressed gets its counter to 0, and when the timer count equals the time I set, the actions to be done. Maybe these are the only two possibilities. Which is better having in mind speed and battery discharging? Thanks !

for reasons I never thought were useful until now, all the action methos (keychar, keycharUnhandled, trackwheelRoll,click) pass in 'time' (measured from device start time). you could use that here
