Hi! I use J2ME and MIDP 2.0. I'd like to know if it's possible to 'read' a character typed by the user? I mean, is there any way to make it independent from the device keyboard design? Maybe there are only few keyboard schemes which need implementing. If so, how can I check which scheme a device uses? Also, if a working solution already exists I would be thankful to let me know. :) Thanks in advance!

You can use a TextBox or a TextField.

Yes but the problem is that I'd like to control input in the 'lower' level. I can't use any UI when a canvas is being displayed. Is there any simple solution to that?

I've had a similiar topic sometime ago but this time I am looking for a way to read characters only.

Thank you

There is nothing like that available.

That's what I was afraid. :/

Thanks shmoove once again! I wish I could give you a positive rating more than once. :)

You could use an onscreen keyboard I suppose - more work especially if you want to include extra characters for different languages.
You could also use the old arcade style A - - where the cursor moves the current letter up and down.
