Keyboard shortcuts for iOS4 bluetooth KB?

Postby RickB » Tue Jun 22, 2010 2:47 pm

I've started using a "Stowaway" bluetooth keyboard that I'd purchased years ago for my iPhone 3GS (one of these):

http://www.amazon.com/Stowaway-Ultra-Sl ... B0002OKCXE

and yesterday updated to iOS4. While I'm awaiting App Store approval of the crash-free version of IM+ I ran into another potential issue.

when I'm typing an IM, there's no option that I can find that will cause the Enter key to send the message. And when the BT keyboard is operational, I cannot bring up the on-screen keyboard and use it's "send" button. Which means disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to send each message.

Is there a way to set the "Enter" key to send the IM? Or configure another key combination to act as "send"? or display the "send" button outside the touchscreen keyboard so it can be accessed even when the touchscreen KB is disabled?

Thanks in advance.

We haven't tested IM+ with Bluetooth keyboard.
Does "Enter" button work properly with other apps? E.g., does it work as "Return" in Mail application?

the Enter key functions simply as a "carriage return" at the end of a line. It's behavior is the same in email and MMS too.

in MMS for example, there is the send button on screen that can be pressed even if the onscreen keyboard is not displayed so there's no need to configure the keyboard differently. The Mail application also has a separate Send button.

I have forwarded this question to our development team.
Our developers will investigate the situation and see how it can be improved in next versions.

Is it possible to use "carriage return" in message?
I need multi-line messages.
For now Return key is replaced with Send button and it is not convenient at all.
