I am currently required to show/hide my custom menu item according to the type of context message in the message list. For example, if current selected message is email, menu item "Process Email" will show up and menu item "Process SMS" will be hidden, vice versa. I want to know if it's possible to do it.

This question has been asked before, and from memory and from my own experience, what you ask is not possible.
However the 'getString()' method is called during the menu creation, so I believe some people attempt to find the current screen and do some analysis of that, but I've never tried that and I'm not sure either how successful that would be or how OS dependent your code would become.
Edit: as pointed out below, getString does not exist in ApplicationMenuItem. I mean toString().

Thanks for your reply,
I am still not clear which class' 'getString()' method is called during the menu creation. I am using custom menu class drive from 'net.rim.blackberry.api.menuitem.ApplicationMenuIt
