How to make some overlay type pop up??

Hi,

 

i have a screen in my app where at the bottom there will be some Menu button. After clicking the menu button, it should slide up and display the four more buttons. This total part should work like some overlay in the screen like this two attached images.. Now for the  menu item i have added the click event. But i am confused, how can i make that overlay type of manager. Does BlackBerry provide anything like this?? Please suggest.. I am trying for BlackBerry 5.0.

Hi @

 

First of all, I recommend using the search box in forum as I remember I have seen similar questions.

 

Second, couple of ways which come to mind are:

 

1. Use the EyelidFieldManager:

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/ui/extension/container/EyelidF...

 

2. Use PopupScreen with transition. Check out these links:

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/11958/Screen_transitions_detailed_overview_806...

and

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/ui/container/PopupScreen.html

 

Hope that helps,

 

E.
