Removing default menu items

Hi all,

In my application, I use the techniques described here ( http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic/livelink.exe/fetch/2000/348583/800332/800505/800508/... )

to create a tabbed view.

However, when I activate the menu on the navigation LabelFields, I receive a menu item entitled "Copy".  I imagine that this is the default for a LabelField.

My makeMenu code does not call super.makeMenu(menu, instance).  It creates the menus it needs then terminates.


Does anyone have suggestions on how to remove the "Copy" from the menu?

Do I need to override the LabelField, override makeMenu, and simply do nothing?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Removing default menu items



In your 

makeMenu(Menu menu, int instance)


I'd add



You should then have:

protected void makeMenu(Menu menu, int instance) { menu.deleteAll(); // add your code here }
