Hi fellows..
I was wondering is there a way to simulate key presses after loading a MIDlet or has anyone tried it yet? :)

Well, what I'm thinking is may be write a script that will have the sequence of key presses (with some delay in-between each) and if a parser module can be written which would read the file and generate key-press events for the emulator.

The following situation might help you understand it better:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Definitions of terms I've used here:
- Script: A sequence of keycodes OR keynames
- Parser Module: A module that is integrated with phoneME, which reads the 'Script' and generates appropriate events to be sent to the MIDlet.

(example: ok.. consider the WTK emulator. Now it has a GUI emulator. Now when u press a key on the num pad of the emulator, that 'button' press is read and sent from the emulator to the MIDlet.. right? Now, instead of the GUI transmitting the ;button' pressed events, I want to have a parser module that would read the script and generate these 'button' presses which would be sent to the MIDlet)

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what modules / part of the source code (phoneME feature for Linux/x86) do I look into - basically for just generating & sending key-press events..?

Thank you
