status indicator

When my MIDlet is running,  I'd like to have a status indicator on the top of the home screen for it. Just as when the bluetooth is on, you see a small bluetooth icon.


How can I achieve this by coding? Thanks in advance!

Re: status indicator

This feature has been added in version 4.6 of the BlackBerry API set (requires BlackBerry JDE 4.6+ and BlackBerry handheld software versiomn 4.6+).  The ApplicationIndicator class allows you to do this.  You can preview this feature in the beta release of the version 4.6 BlackBerry JDE found here:  http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbeta.jsp#tab_tab_jde
