What class is the method on? Once you find the class you can go to the Sun's api page, "", and get a description of the method.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

Unless you are doing some deep system programming you probable won't need to use that much. That is what you would use to hook up a screen component with the underlying peer on the native side. The classes that Sun provides use this so you rarely need to.
