Default Programming keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys)

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everybody!

I need to program keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) in my application. I have seen this feature on Google Maps, miuTunes and ÜberTwitter.

A code snippet sample would be highly appreciated.

Default

override keyChar in your screen class:

protected boolean keyChar(char key, int status, int time) {
boolean retval = false;
switch (key) {
case Characters.ESCAPE:
//do something
return true;
default:
retval = super.keyChar(key, status, time);
}
return retval;
}
