FS#2648 - text viewer button mods

modified button assignment in text viewer slightly so that you have
to HOLD left/right to jump to the beginning/end of the file, instead of
simply pressing… this should avoid accidental jumping around.

Implemented in r25262

changed button mapping slightly so that (in wide mode) you must press
and hold left/right to jump to the beginning/end of the file, to prevent
accidental jumping around.
also added basic track skipping (previous and next track) for iriver

It’s good patch for me. Because I sometimes click left/right buttons in narrow mode and it isn’t comfortably to jump to the beginning/end of the file, when I read it. So I try to rebuild my own rockbox version with the patch. And I found some troubles with it. Really I’m not a programmer, C programmer but I corrected errors, I think so, and for me patch works. So if someone wants to use it, I upload it.

My last sync.

Has anyone made a patch that allows you to change pages by pressing the NEXT and PREV buttons, instead of scrolling? Sometimes I accidently touch the scroll pad and it’s rather anoying.

So, I was about to commit this but we need your full real name.. please add it in a comment so this can go in.

@Jonathan Gordon:
If you mean my real name, it’s Victor Karpunin.
If you mean rubberglove, I don’t know who is he :)

I have implemented this differently (it just remaps the buttons before entering the switch statement, which is less code), and it’s committed in r25262.

The track skipping buttons are not implemented as the current version of the text viewer uses more button combinations for bookmarks and other new features, and there isn’t room any more :)
