J2ME Command Class


In the given J2ME Command Class example, we have set the various commands namely, screen, back, cancel, ok, help, stop, exit and item to the Midlet. And also set the priority for it such as 1, 2, 3 etc. In J2ME commands are used for keeping information of the commands, not the action. For defining actions, CommandListener class are used. In this example we are going to show different commands on the screen but we have not used CommandListner class into it, that's these commands will not perform any action.






Our command class Midlet will look like as follow..

Comment of Bug

hello dear in your post i Found a little bug, As you specified the priority of command your commands are not according that. means you have given the priority of Screen 1 but this is at position 2 and same for OK an Cancel. If you get any solution of this please share with us. Thanks Shani Goriwal
