First post, so be gentle ;)

I wish to use Bluetooth input (such as from a headset) to perform
certain operations in the OS, which are different than the default set
operations (e.g. changing the volume by pressing the "volume changing"
buttons on a headset).
For example, I want to determine that pressing a "volume changing"
button on my BT headset will prompt a scrolling (up or down) operation
in the OS (instead of changing the volume).

I was not able to find any relevant information and was wondering if
you can get me started and/or direct me to where I can read more about

Thank you so much,

I took a look on Google as well and couldn't really find anything. I'm not sure where to direct you in this case for developing your own app other than start reading up on what Bluetooth can do and what Android can do, and what can be communicated between them.

First, thank you.

Indeed, I also searched the web for a solution but could not find one. It's a shame since not only is this missing, I'm also just a beginner regarding the operating system. All I could find were scripts about BT pairing, but not anything to utilize BT input for commands.

Maybe someone else has an idea?

I think it would be awesome to see something like that, the phone interpretting bluethooth signals as alternate commands then originally designed for.

Unfortunetly, I have nothing to contribute but if u have any other findings on the subject keep us informed.
