I am about to make a fairly custom UI for my blackberry app. My boss is thinking something similar to the Facebook blackberry client (A custom look of that degree).
Do I really have to extends the Field/MenuItems classes and repaint them myself?
Is there some UI drawing library that can help me? (Something like PolishME, but I heard that isn't good for BB.)
Here is an image showing what the Facebook UI looks like, I just want to know the effort required to make something this pretty.
Also, I noticed on the 3rd image, the facebook client managed to invoke the local file browser/explorer. I was wondering how this can be done, since I cannot find the API in net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.
Any advice/suggestions will be appreciated.
