Default Uncaught Exception : Illegal Screen Index: 1

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all !

I am trying to develop a blackberry application using my own EditField.

I have a class MyEditField that extends BasicEditField.
I have override all the draw and paint methods and use the update method to get the updated text from the textfield and draw accordingly somewhere else.

The problem i am facing is that some times when the SureType screen is active it throws an exception and exits
Uncaught Exception : Illegal Screen Index: 1

I have figured out that this has something to do with the suretype word completion screen. When i disable suretype to use MultiTap it works like charm.

does any one has any clue about this?

Below is my code.
I have tried this on 2 Semi-Qwerty phones 8100Pearl and 7310

public class MyEditField extends BasicEditField{
    	String text = "";
    	public MyEditField(){
    	protected void paint(Graphics arg0) {
    	protected void paintBackground(Graphics g) {
    	protected void drawFocus(Graphics g, boolean flag) {
    	protected void highlightSelectedArea(Graphics g, boolean flag, int i, int j) {
    	public void update(int arg0) {
    		String s = getText();
    		if(s != null)
