notifyPaused() in UIApplication


is it possible in a UIApplication to have something similar to the 'notifyPaused()' method from Midlets?

The systemlistener does not do it.

I searched for it, but have not come out with anything.

Re: notifyPaused() in UIApplication

Application.deactivate is called when an application moves to the background.  Does this capture what you are looking for?

Re: notifyPaused() in UIApplication

No. I want to know when something is happening that prevents my app from running continually (as well in foreground as in background), for example an incoming phone call or any other possibility. So I know, for that time my app is paused or all events happening at that time in my app are ignored due to for example an incoming phone call.

Re: notifyPaused() in UIApplication

this is not the case, an application runs in the background when a phonecall arrives.
because the incoming call screen has the highest possibe priority and is a global screen all other applications are covered by it.
as soon as the user has answered (or denied) the call your application could return to the foreground (you have to use a phone listener though).

on phones that are not on wifi or 3G calls interrupt data connections, use the CoverageInfo methods as well as RadioInfo.isDataServiceSuspended to check for this condition, and again a phone listener can be used to complement this.
