HELP!!! How to deactivate the reduced keyboard option in my application?

[ Edited ]



I am developing on Storm 2, which has a touch screen.


I want to always have a full keyboard in my app whenever the user tries to use the editfield. 


How do I always enable the full keyboard and remove the option "reduced keyboard" in the menu?


Thanks for your help!

You can use following code to remove menu items:


protected void makeMenu(Menu menu, int instance) {

super.makeMenu(menu, instance);

menu.deleteAll(); // To delete all items
