Title: KEY STRUCTURE, AND ELECTRONIC APPARATUS AND OPERATION METHOD AND DEVICE THEREOF
Abstract:
A key structure, and an electronic apparatus and an operation method and device (1900) thereof. The key structure comprises: a base (1) provided with first-type triggering components corresponding to respective preset key travel distances; and a pressing portion (2) provided with second-type triggering components in one-to-one correspondence with the first-type triggering components, the pressing portion (2) being capable of making a relative motion with respect to the base (1) when acted upon by an external force. Upon pressing of the pressing portion (2) to a particular one of the preset key travel distances, the first-type triggering components having key travel distances not greater than any preset key travel distance cooperate with corresponding second-type triggering components, thereby forming a triggering signal corresponding to the particular preset key travel distance. The key structure, and the electronic apparatus and the operation method and device (1900) thereof can use the same key structure to realize a plurality of control functions corresponding to a plurality of key travel distances, thereby reducing the number of key structures on an electronic apparatus, improving the appearance of the electronic apparatus, and enhancing structural stability of a housing at the same time.
