Hardware buttons on mobile app

Postby h_kos » Thu Oct 29, 2015 12:44 am

Normaly if an app runs on a mobile devices the underlying system will handle the events of hardware-buttons (e.g. button back, homebutton) and will provide some hooks/callbacks so that the programmer can handle various scenarious like preserving state, reactivation of the app aso.
We have an existing Windows Phone app and we try to rebuild the programm with cshtml5 for all other platforms. As I did not read anything about these topics somewhere...is there a link to the documentation where this is described? Is there an idea how this should work, can be achieved or better said: are these valid considerations or not subject of interest?

A tutorial for publishing your apps to iOS and Android is being written at the following URL (it's a work-in-progress):

As for interacting with hardware buttons and other hardware features, we plan to provide a C# wrapper for the Apache Cordova API. We will keep you updated with a roadmap as soon as possible.
