    Volume keys of Nokia 5800 XPressMusic Edition

    Hi,

    The Nokia 5800 phone has a hardware key for adjusting song playback volume on the right side. The user can press the key at three different positions - top, middle and bottom.

    Top and bottom key press increase and decrease the volume.

    I have been trying to capture the volume up/down hardware key press events. I overloaded CCoeAppUi::HandleKeyEventL in the AppUi class of my application and run the application on the phone. When I tap on the volume key ( in the middle position ) I get a callback on HandleKeyEventL. But the top and bottom key presses do not generate any callbacks. Is there any way to capture the such key press.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    The media keys dont work that ways, you will have to use the remote control apis as mentioned here :-

    Re: Volume keys of Nokia 5800 XPressMusic Edition

    I have another related doubt. When the user presses the media keys ( like volume up ) in Nokia 5800 while the built-in media player is open the application responds with a volume control pop-up. The user can then adjust the volume of the song playback through the Touch UI.

    Is there an API for bringing up the pop-up volume control.

    Please help
