Hi,
Does anyone know how to use timer class in MIDP 1.0? I have a splash (implemented using alert) for which I set alrt_splash.setTimeout(50). Even after 5 secs the screen doesn't moveforward to the next one. I have also set display.setCurrent(alrt_splash, frm_login). Can anyone tell me how to make this splash screen automatically disappear and show the login form?
Here's the code:
-------------------------------------
in the startApp() I have given this:
Alert alrt_splash = new Alert("Welcome","",image,AlertType.CONFIRMATION);
display.setCurrent(alrt_splash, frm_login);
alrt_splash.setTimeout(50);
-------------------------------------------------
The only way it goes to the next screen is when I click on the "done" button that appears below from the "AlertType.Confirmation" Is there any other alternate way to do this?
-Kate

Hi Kate,
I think 50 milliseconds is too short for the alert screen.
If you don't specify setTimeout, the next screen should appear few seconds after the Alert.

Hi Phoum Lib,
I tried with 1000, 15000 msecs.. still the timer doesn't work. I get a "done" button at the bottom of the image and I "have" to use this itself to navigate to the next screen. i also tried removing the setTimeout() command.. the alert doesn't go to the login page after a few secs. Is there any way I can get rid of the done button? It automatically comes when i use alert.
Any other option?

Kate,
you should use AlertType.INFO instead of AlertType.CONFIRMATION
