Application Running in Background



 i am developing an application and i have two  basic requirements for my application. The requirement is as below :


1.  " when blackberry phone is restart, my application should auto run in background mode and after that if user click

on application icon or select icon in switchapplication then my application should come in foreground."


2 ." when user close my application i keep my application running in background and when again user press my application icon my application should come in foreground.


For 1, i am selecting the autostartup option in eclipse so it keep my application running. but i want my run in background and when user press application icon it should immediately come in foreground.


for2, i am adding single line code in onClose() method 




can any one help me or provide the sample code so i can complete my basic 2 requirements.

Re: Application Running in Background

you are on the right track.
also add "return true" to the onClose method below the requestBackground to indicate that you have handled the event.

But be aware of this:
