    Hi,
    I am trying to make an application which will triggered by SMS, and show in front of the standby screen. My application will only use a small portion of the full screen, and the background is the android standby screen. I have searched some android examples but those application will always fill full of the screen, can anyone give me some guideline on how to make an such application?
    It shall looks like that
    ------------------
    | |
    | |
    | the android |
    | system |
    | background |
    | |
    |-----------------|
    | my app |
    |-----------------|
    | |
    -------------------

    Thanks
    xyz

    Not sure if it is of any help but there is an app that lets you add widgets and shortcuts to the lock screen. Widget Locker I think it is called.

    When the screen comes on you can have different sliders for different functions along the side, same as Galaxy S answering mechanism. Very useful for going straight to Phone, Camera etc.
