    Terminal Emulator commands

    How can I send the ESC command using an OG Droid in Terminal Emulator?

    Using the d-pad button doesn't work and neither does changing it to a different key (the control key that is). Any help or recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You might be able to do it through input keyevent.

    input allows you to input keycodes or text. I am lazy and use it to send text messages when I am by a computer with this function:

    Code:
    text()  {
    for word in "$@"; do
      input text $word
      input keyevent 62
    done
    }
    then in adb shell I do:

    Code:
    text this message can be whatever and it will type it on your phone like you are actually typing it on the screen or keyboard.
    Anywho, probably info you weren't looking for but the following table might help you do what you want. Look at the keyevent codes below for your options and then in ternial do:

    Code:
     
    input keyevent <keyevent>
    so.. if I wanted to press back without actually pressing the button I would do:

    Code:
    input keyevent 4
    Code:
    0 -->  "KEYCODE_UNKNOWN"
    1 -->  "KEYCODE_MENU"
    2 -->  "KEYCODE_SOFT_RIGHT"
    3 -->  "KEYCODE_HOME"
    4 -->  "KEYCODE_BACK"
    5 -->  "KEYCODE_CALL"
    6 -->  "KEYCODE_ENDCALL"
    7 -->  "KEYCODE_0"
    8 -->  "KEYCODE_1"
    9 -->  "KEYCODE_2"
    10 -->  "KEYCODE_3"
    11 -->  "KEYCODE_4"
    12 -->  "KEYCODE_5"

    24 -->  "KEYCODE_VOLUME_UP"
    25 -->  "KEYCODE_VOLUME_DOWN"
    26 -->  "KEYCODE_POWER"
    27 -->  "KEYCODE_CAMERA"

    Say whaaaa? Is this just so you can text through some kind of console similar to PDAnet? If that is a yes, can you elaborate more on what you do since I am obviously a newb here. Also, when you send an SMS, is it saving what you typed or no?

    Wow that sounds pretty deep. I might just try Better Terminal Emulator instead. Thanks though.
