    Re: read screen

    Hmmm... what?

    Sorry, I am not able to follow your question at all. Could you please be more specific so people could help you...

    Are you talking about text which you application displays on the screen? Or getting debug information from the phone to Netbeans? What?

    Hmmm... I *think* I now understand what you are after. Unfortunately that is not possible.

    Why would you need to debug an application by someone else?

    Re: read screen

    for example if you want to read the screen for blind people, you have to take information from the screen of the phone not the application you write. if you read only the application's screen you write, there will be no mean for blinds. because you have to read everything seen on the screen.
    i am trying to do such a program. my program works fine but only in given strings. if i can take the text on the screen of my mobile phone, i will apply the function i wrote. is there any packages holding these information maybe?

    Re: read screen

    are u talking about getting the strings (text) from the screen ? as in a getText() method from a TextField ? Still I dont get what u want to o after u have the string, blind people wont be able to read it anyways.. or are u developing a text-to-speech software ?

    actually, I am not able to make any sense from ur posting, sorry...

    Re: read screen

    As hartti said, if you're trying to read screens of other applications from your j2me app, then there's no way to do it.

    Re: read screen

    Now I understand what you are after. Unfortunately I have to agree with jappit that this is not possible (MIDlets do not have access to screens of other applications)
