Capturing events from a long press of the End (red) key on S60 devices can be done using the following code snippet:

 // Capture events from end key (SwEvent capability required)
iKeyHandle1 = CCoeEnv::Static()->RootWin().CaptureKey( EKeyPhoneEnd, 0, 0 ) ;
iKeyHandle2 = CCoeEnv::Static()->RootWin().CaptureKeyUpAndDowns( EStdKeyNo, 0, 0 );
// Release captured keys
CCoeEnv::Static()->RootWin().CancelCaptureKey( iKeyHandle1 );
CCoeEnv::Static()->RootWin().CancelCaptureKey( iKeyHandle2 );

This code snippet works fine on S60 3rd Edition and 3rd Edition, FP1 devices, as well as on S60 5th Edition touch devices. However, on S60 3rd Edition, FP2 devices, capturing the events will fail if the priority is not defined or is too low.


For the above functions, use overloaded versions that take priority as a parameter:

 TInt32 CaptureKey( TUint aKeycode, TUint aModifierMask, 
TUint aModifier, TInt aPriority );
TInt32 CaptureKeyUpAndDowns( TUint aScanCode, TUint aModifierMask,
TUint aModifier, TInt aPriority );

For S60 3rd Edition, FP2 devices, capturing events from the Send/End keys is possible by using a priority value higher than EPriorityFileServer.
