Assigning ArcPad "Lock Screen" function to a hardware button on mobile device

    I want the ability to lock/unlock my screen using a hardware key/button on my mobile device when running ArcPad. You can map other Windows Mobile functions to those buttons, but currently you cannot set the lock screen function to a hardware button.

    This is needed because rain, dirt and other field detritus will often collect on the screen. Before the user can physically wipe the screen clean they must first lock it. However, it is often difficult to even see the tiny lock screen icon in ArcPad because of all the environmental debris on screen (and the small size of the icon). Having the ability to map this function to a hardware key will eliminate this problem.
