2-what is exactly the program that is the bottom bar ?
3-how are the flipbar move, push events exactly handled ?

1. each folder has a `metadata.db` which contains the details of the files in that folder
2. `popupmenu` is responsible for the status bar, popup menu and taskbar
3. they are mapped to key presses (left=arrow up, right=arrow down, push=enter, menu=F1)

1. you can change the keyboard driver (ionkdb) but it would break existing applications
2. it is in sqlite3 format and pretty self explanatory though it might take some diffling around
3. popupmenu is launched from sysd (main.c)

1. check `page change` stuff in statusbar.c of popupmenu for hints
2. ionkdb is kernel input driver so is in our public Linux source tar
3. what keymap?

Gertjan, is the code that determines what to render next upon a button (flipbar push or equivalent) event in pan mode open sourced?

My assumption is that all repods want is to find a way to enable this "page flow" mode on DR800, which I don't think is easy (seems to be disabled by compile configuration). But if the code I mentioned is open source, it would be fairly easy to render the next/previous page instead of currently do nothing.

This is part of /usr/bin/uds, which is not open source

4-what is used for the program ipc ?
1. the applications access metedata.db via calls to libermetadb.
2. applications register menu items and toolbar icons via popupmenu which calls back to the application over IPC
3. they are key presses
4. the platform uses DBUS for IPC via glib-dbus and liberipc.

Please check the iOn development document carefully as it should answer a lot of your questions.

uds is used to open most types of files, including pdf. you can find which application is associated with which file type by executing one of the following commands on the emulator:
# gconftool-2 --dump /apps/er/sys/ctb
# erconftool -s /apps/er/sys/ctb
(this shows the gconf configuration for ctb, the content browser program)
