sound profile change/volume change listener in blackberry

[ Edited ]

I want to make an application that listen to the sound profile change/volume change in blackberry. Targeting versions are 5,6,7.

I had search in documentation of Blackberry but found nothing.

Two things i found during searching.

  1. globaleventlistener This needs GUID of that event, this event is not documented in event GUID list.

  2. Notification manager Notificationmanager might help with one of the register. but i don't know how to register it with system events. It also needs GUID.

please share resource if i missed something.

I am new to blackberry development. please help me out.

Re: sound profile change/volume change listener in blackberry

While there is no global listener for volume changes, you can listen for users pressing the volume keys.  MediaKeyListener allows for that.
