You are right, they are not.
They are only useful to access strange chars like "0"-"9" or "!@#$%&*?/ etc." which are not often used in passwords or user names. But of course it depends on the used virtual keyboard and the chars can be accessed in other ways.
I am sure you really never encountered 'long clicks' (no irony or sarcasm here) and you never really looked too deep into the API Guides about Android UI that's what amazes me.

Jackson (external) and HttpURLConnection (part of the API) do the trick very easily but I know nothing about how FPC accesses API classes and even less how it can use external Java libs (fcl-json could not be used?).

I apologize if I did offend you.


Tip of the day: There is no double click listener in Android.
