    that is my code for getting the first key pressed. but lines before this never run because a key always is in buffer & i want to flush the keyboard before this line.
    m=Input.KEYPAD;
     if(m>-1){
            box=new TextBox("MyProgram", "!!!!!!", 20, 0);
            display.setCurrent(box);
        }

    I can not tell from the code snippet what you tried, (in terms of the question, how to clear the buffer), so I do not have much to go on.
    Do some research and make an attempt at clearing the buffer, if it does not work, post the code and your question.
