Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

i think it depends on the rom or manila that your using try using the TF3D HD port from the touch HD .. i dont get that landscape menu with the TF3D HD anymore just a smaller landscape of the screen your on when you open the keyboard

note landscape does not work with this

here is the post: TF3D HD port 2/18/09 update

Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

I have the same problem and i am on the Sprint stock ROM. When in messaging or other programs i slide out the keyboard and it kicks me to the landscape menu and out of the program i was in. Also, when rotating the the screen in Opera back to portrait i get kicked out of Opera.

Anyone else?

Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

Yeah, I'd like to know how to disable this "action" menu, myself. It's VERY annoying and it kicks me out of whatever I'm doing when I want to use the keyboard for something. For example, when I want to reply to an email using pocket Outllook, I click "reply" and when I flip the TP to its side and slide out the keyboard, I get the "action" menu and I then have to navigate all the way back to the email I was replying on or to the "drafts" folder sometimes for my new unsent reply message. I'm really surprised there is no setting for tihs.

Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

Did you change any settings? I'm using a stock Sprint TP with TF3D enabled. When I hit reply, then open the keyboard, the screen simply rotates and I'm ready to type my reply.

Would be interesting to see if a soft reset changes the behavior of your phone?

Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

Hmmmm, maybe I HAVE found a way to fix this???

Trying something...

I went into the registry

HKLM>Software>HTC>Biotouch then find App3, which by default has this Value Data: APLauncher\Windows\APLauncher.exe

I cleared the Value Data in that entry (didn't delete the Value itself, just the wording in the Value DATA field, as quoted above in orange). Then I re-booted. The TFL3D seemed to take a while to load but after it did, I didn't see any adverse problems. I wonder if deleting the entire "App3" REG_SZ value would have the same effect.

Then when I went to slide out the keyboard right away, the action menu DID come up. HOWEVER...when I started a new message or replied to one (text or email), then slid out the keyboard, it stayed right there with the message (rotated the screen, of course). No action menu came up.

I'll play with this for a while and see if it stays this way. Cross your fingers.

UPDATE:

Still seems to work. I rebooted the phone and everything loaded normally. Slid the keyboard out while creating a new message and while replying to a message (text or email) and it stayed with it, no action menu. When NOT creating or replying to a message, sliding the keyboard out DOES bring up the action menu. IN FACT...I've noticed something else: it appears that whenever I'm DOING something in one of the tabs (i.e, opening up and viewing a contact's info in the Contacts tab, actively viewing photo(s) in the Album/Camera tab, etc.), sliding out the keyboard DOES NOT bring up the action menu. When I've simply navigated to a tab but haven't done anything in it, sliding out the keyboard DOES bring up the action menu.

So far, so good! I'll continue to play with this for a while.



IF THIS HAS HELPED YOU, PLEASE DO CLICK THE GREEN "THANKS" BUTTON!

Re: way to disable action menus when sliding out keyboard??

mtnmedic - I'm giving this a try now! I've been bugged by this for a while, but I've been trying to ignore it (my new 'go with the flow' mentality that I'm trying out to deal with the stress of the 'little annoyances' I have with this phone!)

I'll report back...
