Default how to simulate key?

Please Login to Remove!

hi,

i know that there are functions which represents down and up positions of key-keyUp and keyDown. but they do not work as should. in api it is written that keyDown "Represents a constant indicating that the key is in the down position." but as i try to use it in my application, i realized that keyDown does not represent only a key in a down position but fully click- so down and up..

is there any way that i could simulate key in a down position?

kind regards

what i need to do is simulate shortcut of two keys pressed-> alt + arrow.

So, i must at first simulate alt in a down position, hold it, then simulate arrow click and then release alt key.

is there any chance i can do it?

it looks like such a code may work:

EventInjector.KeyCodeEvent _e = new EventInjector.KeyCodeEvent(
EventInjector.KeyCodeEvent.KEY_DOWN,
(char)Keypad.KEY_ESCAPE,
KeypadListener.STATUS_ALT,
500
);

_e.post();

but, when i'm in my application it works only as 'escape'. when i'm in foreground (main screen of my device) this code works as i wanted-as a shortcut of alt+escape(arrow).

Can anyone know why? how can i do that this shortcut works also in my application?

kind regards
