    Sending an eSWT application to background

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to send an eSWT application to the background? In the standard MIDP 2.0 UI toolkit (javax.microedition.lcdui) it is easily done by using Display.setCurrent(null). But I can't find out how to do the same when using the eSWT toolkit. I have tried making the top level shell invisible, but that doesn't work. Closing the top level shell doesn't work either, that actually closes the whole application...

    thanks in advance,

    Re: Sending an eSWT application to background

    I've been trying to accomplish the same thing, I've also tried the function setMinimised on my mobileshell but it doesn't work. The solution I've settled for is using the pushregistry to restart my application instead with the lcdui toolkit and then sending it to the background.
