Hi, java n00by here.
I've used addMenuItem(custom menu item) in the past to add custom menu item to my MainScreen.
However, the project I am currently working on extends Screen instead of MainScreen. On this, I am unable to pull up menu item in whole. When I press the BlackBerry button (Insert key) on simulator, I don't see any MenuItem popping up.
How do I get the basic menu item pop up and how do I add custom menu item like how I was able to do to MainScreen?
Thanks for much help!

You need to override makeMenu. This article is pretty useful: http://www.slashdev.ca/2008/05/07/menuitem-demysti

Hey thanks for giving me that link, it was very useful.
I still have a question though: When a screen is extended, is it normal for menu item to be disabled? I only ask because I can't pull up the menu item using the menu button and I don't know why
