Default How to Hide and Show Menu Items

Please Login to Remove!


Does anybody know how to hide/show (similar to setVisible(boolean b) method) menu items in the menu?

i tried removing them for hiding, then adding them back for showing. But my problem is, how would i know that the menu item already exists in the menu?

I assume that you are overriding makeMenu() in your Screen class?

If so, you makeMenu() is called each and every time the menu key is pressed, so there is no reason to hide menu items. Simply do not add a particular menu item if it is not appropriate for the screen context at the time makeMenu is called.
