Create multi-paged remotes

Hi there!

I just created a combined remote based on a TV and a DVD-Player remote.
The downside is, that i have 10+ entries.

The consequences:

  • buttons with the same functionality (e.g. Power) must be distinguished by different prefixes (e.g. “DVD_…”) which may make the button-name exceed the displayable characters
  • the lists is pretty long and lacks clarity

My suggestion:
Introduce “pages” on the custom remotes (e.g. one for the TV and one for the DVD-Player).
Buttons can then be assigned to a page and everything is nicely sorted.

The Up and Down buttons have no functionality when within a custom remote.
These buttons can be used to switch pages.
Also, naming the pages (and displaying the current page’s name) may be a thing.

The assignment doesn’t have to be possible on the Flipper itself but in the editor on a laptop.
This way the IR-app does only need to support a new attribute per entry in a “.ir” file that states the page it shall be located on.
