J2ME & Surpressing Text Input Boxes
Posted on 2005-05-05
I have a J2ME app that accepts numerical input via the following fields:
new TextField("Time In?", "", 4, TextField.NUMERIC);
On our old cell phones, this command works just fine. We type the numbers *directly* into the field.
Unfortunately, on our new cell phones (like our Motorola V551 phones or our Nokia 3320s) when you start to type into the field a "text entry" type dialog appears that takes your input. You then have to press "OK" to the text entry box (which places the information into the field) and then "OK" in my program. These extra steps are frustrating and if you're "too fast" what you type is lost.
How can I suppress it?
