keyboard – How to simulate PC's Esc key on android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I’m writing an app that can play flash on android, but I can’t simulate ESC key, since a lot of flash games need ESC key to return to the main menu, without this key the app I made will be useless. So who could tell me how to simulate this? Can I just send a keycode? but I don’t know the keycode too…

How to solve:

Most games use the BACK key for this…. See

Note that, while there is a key event ESCAPE (as Ezeh points out), that is only available at API level 11 (which is Android 3.0 and above –, which is not very widely available in devices yet.
