"Menu" button disabled when I override onKeyDown

 I am overriding onKeyDown in my activity, and calling
super.onKeyDown() on all values except for the "Call" button, which I
implement myself.

The other buttons seem to work, but the Menu fails to load when I hit
the Menu button.  What can I do to get around this?



        public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event)
                switch (keyCode)
                        case 5:
                                //perform call function
                return true;

Returning true from onKeyDown() means "I handled the key event, ignore
it." You are telling the system to ignore the key event. Your code
should return false by default and true only in case 5 (note you
should use the constatnts instead of hard coded values because the key
codes might change.)

 Thanks, that was it.

Somewhat unrelated, but simple, question... how do I get the menu to
look like a list of items instead of the table format that it's
currently using?
