How to check When my Screen comes on foreground.



I created a HomeScreen class which extends MainScreen.


I need to check a condition when my HomeScreen comes on foreground.


How can I check it. ?

Re: How to check When my Screen comes on foreground.

You can't tell if a screen comes to the foreground, but you can tell if your application comes to the foreground.


Look for the

<Application>.activate() method. 


From a screen you can tell if it has been hidden and is not visible using the '<screen>.onExposed() method.  But there are a number of conditions that will drive that, not just coming to the foreground. 


Note that activate() is driven at application start up too.
