To be clear, i just want to know the key-code which will be used by the Input Subsytem of the Kernel. For example, in <linux/input.h> file you will find a lot of #defines like the below,mapping different kind of key events to some key-code or value : #define KEY_UP 0xXYZ #define KEY_DOWN 0xABC and so on... Now, I'm looking for key events like: #define KEY_PREVIOUSCHANNEL <???> #define KEY_RIGHTUP <???> #define kEY_RIGHTLEFT <???> #define kEY_SUBPICTURE <???> and so on... You are probably right , that Userspace reads the key-events/key-codes from certain sysfs entries exported by Android Linux Kernel and these key-codes/events will be handled accordingly by the respective Framework/Application. But I'm really not interested in how and what Userspace gets from Kernel. I'm interested in what values the Kernel or input subsystem will provide to such keys.. > Not sure if this is what you are interested in but would have been > better if you had described the problem in more detail. >> >> >> Does anybody have any idea about this? >> >> >> - >> Dharam >> _______________________________________________ >> Kernelnewbies mailing list >> Kernelnewbies@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx >> http://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies > > _______________________________________________ Kernelnewbies mailing list Kernelnewbies@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies
