FS#8678 - Flip through keyboard pages on up/down

This changes the Vkeyboard so that it flips pages on the top and bottom edges.
Only for players without a dedicated page flip button.

How would you get to the editing row if the pages scroll vertically? I can’t make it out from the .diff.

Hmmm… Good point. Since the player that I use (Sansa c200) changes control to the edit line by holding the record button, I never thought about it. In short, my guess is that this patch would both flip to the next key page and move to the edit line at the same time, but I didn’t look at it as hard as I should.
I don’t know the various players very well, could you tell me which DAP lacks the page flip button and requires moving the cursor to the edit line?

Well, I know that the e200’s page flip is done by either scrolling to the left/right or holding record and pressing select, and as far as I know the only way to get to the edit line is by scrolling down to it using the wheel. The keyboard controls are really kind of wacky for a lot of targets, it seems. You can follow the chain of related tasks if you’d like to see some other people’s ideas/complaints.
