#29 closed defect (wontfix)

android client does not pass key events at all!

Description

This is actually quite tricky.
The drag layer intercepts a lot of events, so we first have to let them pass through, then the xpra window (an android view) will have to catch those and translate them into something the server can deal with.

Then there is also the issue of popping up the android on-screen keyboard: the view is not an input element so the keyboard is never shown at present.. not sure how that's done either. We probably want to have it shown only if the meny key is pressed as it uses a lot of screen space.

r497 and r498 add basic support for keypresses on android, still needs some work to support modifiers etc

brought the Java/Android? code more up to date:

  • r1645 handles raw packets
  • r1649 adds zlib support (input only)

etc

But I can't see this happening in the current release, delaying... again.

I think the way forward is to abandon this code and use this new one instead.
