Programmatically detecting device features

Hi Everyone,

Is there any way to detect programmatically the device features such as

1. whether the device is QWERTY or simple CLDC type
2. whether the device is full touch screen
3. whether the device is touch screen with QWERTY keypad

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards.

Look in net.rim.device.api.ui.Keypad, especially getHardwareLayout()

Thanks Carol, I am sorry, I forgot to mention that I have not used RIM API to keep my midlet cross-platform. Regards.

Sorry db, Now I'll not cross-post the questions. I read the link you have provided me. I really don't understand the problem behind the cross-posting? I mean why it is not in a interest of those who are answering my question. Please can you clarify me bit more?

I though I can get response from at least any one forum to save the time, so I post it on multiple forums. And when I get the proper answer that worked for me, I post that answer on other un-answered thread in another forum, so that it may be helpful for other people over there.

Anyways, I'll not cross-post again.

But in case if I need urgent information, what should I do? Also, for example, I am using java MIDP API, so I post it on Java forums. And also I am having problems running my application on BlackBerry, so I post the same question on BlackBerry forum, so that I can get help who had same experience?

Best Regards.
I agree. Here's the link:
