Hello every one..
I am making an auto start up app.
I want that during installation the app should ask user to enter some values that will be used as the application starts...
If that cant be done Can i make a Welcome option screen that comes just after the first reboot after the application is installed...?
Thanks in Advance...

Have you seen this?
I would also look at the Options Provider demo, though this will not force the user to do anything the first time the application is installed.

I am able to get the screen at start up now...
but here is one more problem that I am now facing...
After the screen's job is done (Filling up some Edit fields by user) I want the Screen to pop and Normal Home Screen should be visible... but when i do that it shows messasge "has no screens".
I have tried requestClose() but no good.
I also tried requestBackground(), that solves the purpose but I get Icon of my App on Application Ribbon which is not acceptable for my application ...
What to do??

If you mark your application as a System Module, you will not get the icon. However if you leave the application running, it might still be visible when the user does a "Switch Applications".
I'm not sure if you need to keep the Application running. If not, then you can just exit it once the prompts have been filled in.
If however the Application must stay available, then you will need to look at <application>.acceptsForeground(), and returning false when you do not want to the user to see it on the task switch screen. Not that this will also stop it ever coming to the foreground, so you need to be careful about using it at start up.
