JDE 4.2+ default ApplicationMenuItem

[ Edited ]



I am registering some custom menu items with the BB system menu. Like so:



ApplicationMenuItemRepository.getInstance().addMenuItem(ApplicationMenuItemRepository.MENUITEM_EMAIL_EDIT ,this);



This works well enough; my custom menu items appear on the full menu.

But does anyone know of any way that i can get my custom menu items to appear in the default short-list of menu items that pops up when the user hits the trackball?

ApplicationMenuItems only show up in the full menu, not the reduced one.  Third party applications are not able to add ApplicationMenuItems to the reduced menu of the built in applications.
