Showing a notification dialog over the lock screen?



Is it possible to show a notification dialog over the lock screen?  Even if the device has a password set?  I can't find anything in the docs about this question.  I don't want the user to have to log in to see my notification.


I have found the setCategory() method on the notification dialog.  But as far as I can see, there isn't any documentation about what are the allowable strings that can be passed to the method.  Perhaps one of the strings would allow for placement over the lock screen?

Re: Showing a notification dialog over the lock screen?


I think it's not possible at all. I tried a SystemDialog on a device, and it not appearing when the device is locked. I think it has a security reason.
