How to consume touchscreen event in 9500

I am developing a game for BB, but i dont know how to consume touchscreen event while using BlackberryCanvas class

I used touchEvent() method in BlackberryCanvas, but it does not have a return type

Waiting for the reply

What do you want to get in return? Its designed to be called by the system.

The touchEvent() method in the Screen Class has a returntype boolean, if I return a value true it will consume that Event..But in BlackberryCanvas Class it does not have a returntype..

The problem is, when i press the Screen, a Menu popsup at the bottom of the screen which have items (close & switch Application). I just don't want that Menu, for that i want to consume that Event.

I hope i am right!!!!!

Its a top level class. It don't need to forward if the event was consumed. If you overwrite this method you decide yourself if it is consumed or not I think.
