menubutton

The event fires when the user presses the menu button.

document.addEventListener("menubutton", yourCallbackFunction, false);

Details

Applying an event handler overrides the default menu button behavior.

Applications typically should use document.addEventListener to attach an event listener once the [deviceready](events.deviceready.html) event fires.

Supported Platforms

  • Amazon Fire OS
  • Android
  • BlackBerry 10

Quick Example

document.addEventListener("menubutton", onMenuKeyDown, false);

function onMenuKeyDown() {
// Handle the back button
}
