Title bar

Use a title bar to provide BlackBerry device users with information at the top of your application. Most title bars contain only a title, but title bars can display the following items:

  • application icon, descriptive title, and time
  • application notifications, such as a new message indicator
  • wireless connection indicators, including the wireless coverage level, network coverage, GPS indicator, Bluetooth indicator, and Wi-Fi connection indicator
  • battery power indicator
  • active call indicator



Supported since

BlackBerry Java SDK 6.0
