Background Application

In simple Java Edition we can set our components or layouts as setVisible(False) and make them visible. Is it possible to set an application running in background as invisible in Blackberry.

Thanks

Re: Background Application

there is no such thing as "simple java edition"
you can delete a component from its container or screen to make it invisible.
you can add or insert it to make it visible.

you can install a background application as a system module.

Re: Background Application

Through setVisible(true) the coder has the choice whether he wants to display the desired component of the swing application or not.. Cud u elaborate on what do u mean when u say that install ur application as a system module

Re: Background Application

there is no swing on blackberry.

in the application descriptor you can select an application to run on startup (autostart) and to run as a system module.
a system module app is not visible in the application switcher
