Blackberry: how to show menu in Screen extends FullScreen

In Blackberry platform, for any application development if you need to add menu items on the screen that extends from FullScreen, then you may use the following code sample:

For example,  there is a Screen extended from FullScreen with Close MenuItem to show if clicked on menu button of blackberry mobile phone-

import net.rim.device.api.ui.container.FullScreen;
public class LoginScreen extends FullScreen
	public LoginScreen()
		//other stuff
	private MenuItem _closeMenuItm  = new MenuItem("Close",40,40)
		public void run()
	public boolean onMenu(int instance)
		//to show menu items
		return true;
	protected void makeMenu(Menu menu,int instance)
		//set position to show in screen
		menu.setOrigin(-10, Display.getHeight()+15);
		super.makeMenu(menu, instance);
	/*** @see net.rim.device.api.ui.Screen#close()
	public void close()
		int response = Dialog.ask(Dialog.D_YES_NO,"Are you sure to exit?",Dialog.NO);
		if(response == Dialog.YES)
	}//end of class
