Unhappy in pure J2ME MIDlet Canvas I want to display a Marquee

Please Login to Remove!

just like tickers in the lists, i want to display Marquee on a Canvas. (Only on Blackberry, because in other J2ME supporting devices it runs fine in MIDlet)
I have used Timer-Task , and with some logic I am shifting the position of the string.
I have done it using the repaint() and Thread,sleep();
In Blackberry the string is not moving as in MIDlet. Instead it only moves when the trackerball rolls.
I want the app stop waiting for the trackerball event and just moves on showing marquee.
It seems the app dosn't respond to the repaint() call.
I have just 24 hours left for doing that. Maybe I can borrow some more time but at least today I am in great hurry.

Ok You can use Display.getDisplay(midlet).callSerially()
please check out the JavaDoc for this function.
It surely works out.
You just have to arrange your sprites accurately, and there might not be a need to use (Graphics) g.serviceRepaints() to refresh the Canvas.
