Re: Popup on bottom of page + application minimize

Do you want this popup to be part of your Application screen, or a separate screen that sits on top?  If you have a separate screen, then it will take focus so there is typically little value in trying to position it, you can not interact with the screen behind, so why show it?


Regarding 'minimizing', in BlackBerry you can requestBackground to push you application to the background or you can request that the HomeScreen be displayed, which does the same thing but means the next screen the user sees is not the application that was displayed before your application.  Sorry I don't know how to get the HomeScreen to pop up, something I have seen but not trued.  But look at the HomeScreen class, that is the most likely place.  If you don't find it, try searching the forum.
