I can use something like:
adb shell input keyevent 4
and this will send a single ‘Back’ button press to my device. How can I send a longpress?
You can try this command:
adb shell input touchscreen swipe 170 187 170 187 2000
Your application position on screen is
170, 187; delay time is 2000 (ms);
Long press HOME key:
adb shell sendevent /dev/input/event2 1 172 1 adb shell sendevent /dev/input/event2 0 0 0 timeout 1 adb shell sendevent /dev/input/event2 1 172 0 adb shell sendevent /dev/input/event2 0 0 0
You can goto cmd and type adb shell getevent | find “event2” ; long press HOME key to see more.
Since this commit in Android 4.4 it is possibile to use:
adb shell input keyevent --longpress KEYCODE_L
This other commit further improved the behaviour.
When you want to delete something or repeat some Event or just input a lot of numbers, you can use code like the following. It will imitate a longpress on a keyboard:
adb shell input keyevent KEYCODE_FORWARD_DEL KEYCODE_FORWARD_DEL KEYCODE_FORWARD_DEL //delete 3 times adb shell input keyevent KEYCODE_1 KEYCODE_1 KEYCODE_1 //input value '111'
You can repeat the event or input things without limits, just like a Longpress on the key. It’s the same thing. You can define your own longpass and times Now
This link discusses a similar problem, but the device in question (a Nexus One device)has the menu/home/back/search buttons as part of the touchscreen, not physical keys.
This other one appears to be more inline with injecting a physical key input, but requires accessing the *.kl file for your devices driver to determine the device, type, key-code, value-press, and value-release codes for that specific device.
However, the common link between the two appears to be
adb shell sleep n
, where n is the length (in seconds) of the press duration.
Hopefully this might be of some use.
Well, this developer link show the keycode is 128, which i already test, but no expected result
This might be too late to answer but surely will help others.
Please use below cmd to achieve long press.
adb shell input keyevent 5 sleep 5
