screen on top of home screen when key is locked

is it possible to display a screen on top of the homescreen when the keypad is locked?

 

i tried using the following call

 

UiApplication.getUiApplication().pushGlobalScreen(_myScreen, 0, UiEngine.GLOBAL_MODAL);

 

 and nothing happens.

No, you cannot.

 

In you example, the global screen will only become visible when the device is unlocked.

It works but there is no public API for that.

 

In RIM API there are several hidden and secret ways/techniques - not published for developers.

 

It is available only for RIM.

 

For example there is also "Switch application" window feature, not available for developers.

No, I've no suggestions.

 

There are no public classes to deal with. I see no ways how it can be implemented.
