J2ME Bug: mapped SoftKey values

Description: In some Motorola handsets, J2ME application running Canvas does not seem to respond when the left, middle or right soft key is pressed.

Affects: Motorola V3, V3x, SLVR L6 (only tested on these)

Workaround: In your code, expect the values of left, middle, and right soft key press to be -21, -23, -22, instead of the original 21, 23, 22.

In J2ME Polish, change the affected devices specification in devices.xml to have these extra capability parameters as described here.

Hi everybody!

There's another solution to this bug on some Motorola Handsets:

In the keyPressed(int keyCode) method, you define the action to the keys by using this:

{ case UP:
case DOWN:
case FIRE:

I hope I could help you with this tip
