User Interaction

Samsung Smart TVs support user interaction using a variety of input devices. Since users mainly interact with a TV from a distance, TV applications must support interaction through external input devices.

The following input devices are supported on Samsung TVs:

  • Remote Control
    The user most commonly interacts with the TV using a remote control.

  • Mouse
    The user can interact with the TV using a connected mouse.

  • Keyboard/IME
    The user can interact with the TV using a connected keyboard or a virtual keyboard (IME).

  • Gamepad
    The user can interact with the TV using a connected gamepad.

Note

TV Web applications do not support hardware key event handling using the tizenhwkey event, unlike mobile and wearable Web applications.
