3.1.2 Softkeys

The softkeys are managed by the underlying S60 Platform. When no dialog is visible, the right softkey is bound to application exit and the left one represents an Options menu. Python for S60 offers an interface for manipulating the menu and for binding the Exit key to a Python-callable object (see Section 3.1.4).

The native code that implements a dialog also manages the softkeys of the dialog, typically OK and Cancel. When the user input needs to be validated before accepting it and dismissing the dialog, it is best to use Form.
