I have added an ActiveAutoTextEditField in my screen..

after typing in the characters, when i press enter Key, the control shifts to the next line..
Instead i want it to go to the next Field that i have added... (CheckBoxField)..

That is wen the focus is on the ActiveAutoTextEditField , after pressing enter key, The focus should go to the next Field that i have added to the screen ..

How to resolve this

Overide keyChar and add some logic to change focus to next field, the getFieldWithFocusIndex() ,getFieldCount(), setFieldWithFocus(somefield) and getField(someInt) methods of MainScreen would be a good place to start. or to do it less dynamically just use mycheckboxField.setFocus();

public boolean keyChar(char key, int status, int time) {
boolean retval = false;
switch (key) {
case Characters.ENTER:
//move to next field
retval = super.keyChar(key, status, time);
return retval;
