    is this app posible to do?

    Advertisement



    Hi guys

    I have idea for app that will let you move cursor right to left on bb without the trackball? I would like to design software to be able to setup keys on a bb to allow to move cursor right and left. Is it possible?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Hmmm.. That's why the trackball is there for. This would be more useful on the older BBs without a trackball.

    I think that it would be a useful tool for people that have trackballs that aren't working anymore or are stuck. You read about that problem a lot.

    THAT WOULD SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ROCK! As flimsy as those trackballs have proven to be .. I mean you never heard anybody complain about their TRACK WHEEL falling out!!!!

    I am FURIOUS right now cuz i have to get a new Pearl cuz my freakin trackball is busted .. and totally incapacitated my Blackberry. and we should also make ALLLLLL 3rd party apps .. follow RIM's lead and make their menus "first-letter-activated" where you can type the firs letter of an item on a drop-down menu and it then becomes hilighted ... I felt crippled with out the ability to scroll on my Pearl .. .and have to get a brand new one!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~so are you the trackball is not good, I keep thinking about upgrading to 8830 with trackball, since people complain about I will rethink it about getting it. But I will try very hard to develop this app for everyone to use here.

    There are several games that take advantage of special keys eo move the curser right,left,up,down. Some of the keys used have been j for right l for left u for up and b for down or bottom. Also s for right f for left e for up and d for down. Haven't a clue how you do it though.

    I have tried the Opera mini beta ( their latest web brouser) , they have done something similar to what you state, with the use of the ( numbers on my 8700g i can move left to right and up to down it is weird but it is not a bad application.


    Hope this helps .

    What makes you say that? Alt and the trackwheel will move the cursor left and right.

    There were keys for left and right on older models (7290 and earlier). Refer to the image of the 7230 linked below. Alt-O is left and Alt-P is right.
