EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

I found this post: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/EventLog-on-BlackBerry-storm/m-p/88987 but with the release of OS 5.0 there is no HomeScreen "Show Keyboard" option. The only way I can bring up a keyboard is to select a field which seems to invalidate the ability to open the log view.

 

How do you view the log on a BlackBerry Stor running OS 5.0?

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

How about pressing the MENU key and selecting "Show Keyboard" ?

There is no "Show Keyboard" option. That is how I did it before OS 5.0 but in 5.0 that doesn't exist.

[ Edited ]

In 5.0, set one of the convience keys to Virtual Keyboard.  Use this to bring up the virtual keyboard on the home screen and then use the same ALT-LGLG key sequence.

 

 

I'll update the other thread with this information as well.

 

Edit:  Corrected steps.

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

I don't know why it is not showing up but the only thing I can see of MSohm's post is "In 5.0 hold down the"

 

I hope this post will make MSohm's post visible but in the meantime I looked this post up on my BlackBerry Storm 1 and it doesn't work for me, it opens up the "Help Me!" screen that gives me some device information but no option to view the EventLog.

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

Brings up the help screen.. however, i'm looking for a list of those commands, since i'm unable to press more than 2 keys at the same time on a virtual keyboard, such as ALT + LGLG.. can you refear me to a reference about all these sequences?

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

I don't know if there is a "list." I was not able to get to my previous post to edit it (every computer I try has the same problem, only the first couple. Words of. MSohm's post come up. Anything after that doesn't.). It still doesn't work and tried other options but they don't work either.

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

Sorry, my steps above weren't valid.  I've updated my post with the correct ones.

 

For some reason my original post was cut off if you viewed it in IE.  The edited copy seems OK though.

Re: EventLog on BlackBerry Storm running OS 5.0

Thank you, I can see the whole post now. I don't know why IE cut it off but it's fixed so it doesn't matter.

 

I must be doing something wrong, I set the left convenience key to bring up the virtual keyboard. It only opens when either in an app or when the background is visible behind the Home Screen. It won't appear if the device is in landscape or if I click the Home Screen (so only icons are visible) and try to bring up the keyboard.

 

I tried the combo and any other's I can think of and none are working. As stated before if I turn the device the keyboard won't show up so I can't use it then.
