Default Painting the Status Bar

Please Login to Remove!

Good Morning,

Is there some way I can control the painting of the status bar and the title bar? I am currently extending the MainScreen Class, and using the setTitle, and setStatus(for displaying progress info, errors and successful attempts) methods, to set the title and the status respectively.

However, when there is an error, I want to change the color of the status bar to say, red. I cannot seem to find a way to control that. It is always based on the theme, i would presume! :(

As of now, yes, I am using the setStatus( new CustomLabelField()) to set the text( and the color of that text) to red/green for errors/success. I need to change the color of the entire status bar, if that is possible!

Any help/direction will be appreciated!

Default Got it!

All right, for those who might come across the same problem, this is what I did!

In the constructor of your custom Status Bar Label field, include a call to super with the USE_ALL_WIDTH parameter, and do a graphics.fillRect(bounds)!

As simple as that, and it took me all of three hours :(

Aah well, that was good though ;)
