Navigation Modes in Widget

  • In Cursor navigation, user controls the mouse pointer with the five way navigation pad.
  • Tab navigation is a special mode in S60 Web Runtime (WRT) widgets that turns off the mouse pointer, and enables users to navigate on screens and select controls using the five way navigation pad. The drawback of Tab navigation mode is that the WRT engine controls the tab order.
  • The default Navigation/Browsing mode in a widget is Cursor/Pointer mode.

enabling Tabbed Navigation

window.widget.setNavigationEnabled(false );

enabling Cursor Navigation

window.widget.setNavigationEnabled(true );
