Event Types

Accessing the Feature

As of version 3.0, Cordova implements battery status and other device-level APIs as plugins. Access to all other events not related to battery status are enabled by default. Use the CLI's plugin command, described in The Command-line Interface, to enable or disable battery events:

    $ cordova plugin add https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cordova-plugin-battery-status.git
    $ cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.core.battery-status

These commands apply to all targeted platforms, but modify the platform-specific configuration settings described below:

  • Android

    (in app/res/xml/config.xml)
    <feature name="Battery">
        <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.BatteryListener" />
    </feature>
    
    (in app/AndroidManifest.xml)
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BROADCAST_STICKY" />
    
  • BlackBerry WebWorks

    <feature name="Battery">
