Here is my contribution. The program will remap the softkey buttons and volume buttons:

tap soft key = orginal soft key functions
tap and hold left soft key = start menu
tap and hold right soft key = close/ok button
volume slider at the left = page up/down

You can also use the DPAD to do some extra actions in phone app.

NOTE: If you got notification error, please run smartskey.exe and then run smartskey.exe to close the app. The program will now close all notification that relate to smartskey when it is closed.


0.60 (2007-08-23)
Fixed: Make DPAD function work on WM6
Fixed: Fix DPAD function not compatible with TomTom
0.56 (2006-11-17)
Fixed: Fix compatibility with CeleDial
0.55 (2006-11-15)
Fixed: Compatible with CeleDial
Fixed: DPAD function will call default Contacts/Text Messaging instead of calling original Contacts/Text Messaging directly. So if you have installed any third party replacement, it will be called when DPAD in Phone app is pressed.
0.54 (2006-11-06)
Fixed: Endless loop when using “OK” button of keyboard in Wizard.
0.53 (2006-06-23)
Fixed: DPAD on will not affect TomTom and calendar
Fixed: remove notification routine will remove all paths so that it will not prompt wrong notification path anymore when user change the location of the smartskey.exe
0.52 (2006-03-26)
Fixed: DPAD functions still apply in SmartDial dialog.
0.51 (2006-03-20)
Fixed: Can use volume key to switch to vibrate, off mode by volume slider
Fixed: Exception List will not check the classname of the window as well, so you can also put applications that will change title in the list.
Added: change the behavior of the dpad, and user can set the action for each direction using DUP, DDOWN, DLEFT, DRIGHT
0.5 (2006-03-19)
Add: DPAD, use dpad for additional action (call log, messaging, programs, contacts) in phone app.
Add: VOLUMEONTODAY, volume key will check the topmost app is today or not
Fxied: improve force closed function.
0.41 (2006-03-11)
Fixed: will not overwrite ini files
Fixed: make executable smaller
Added: PAGEONEXPLORE, use soft key to scroll page in “Programs”
0.4 (2006-02-25)
Fixed: rewrite force closed function again
Added: VOLUMEONPHONE, volume key will check the topmost app is phone or not
Added: REMOVEDUPSDDAEMON, automatically remove duplicated sddaemon events.
Added: OMAPCLOCK, omapclock wrapper to set clock automatically after wake up.

Now do exactly as pressing the OK button on the keyboard, so hide only. Actually close is much easiler in programming aspect

is there a chance then that at some stage of the development of the tool it would actually ok/close, and not ok/hide the apps?

That is a nice idea (I just got my 8125 and I was thinking of that EXACT setup)

One thing I would ask for, if its not too much trouble...
Can you make another progy that does everything (start menu and ok/minimize) except the volume scroll? I like to change the volume while in a call and such.

Thanx and really nice job; Lew

EDIT: Better idea.

Include a config file for the program, here's an example.
LeftSoftKey = 1 // 0 = default 1 = hold for start menu
RightSoftKey = 1 // 0 = default 1 = hold for ok/minimize 2 = hold for ok/close
VolumeScroll = 0 // 0 = default (volume control) 1 = Scroll
I think that's a good idea. Let me know what you think?

Later; Lew

Is it easy to re-configure the tap and hold functions??

okay, add one more version without volume keys remap. For close button request, I may do it when I am free.

The program cannot be configured because actually no interface.
