Question Focus VerticalFieldManager

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Everyone

Does anyone know how to make a VerticalFieldManger focusable?

I tried,

VerticalFieldManager.FOCUSABLE|VertricalFieldManga ger.HIGHLIGHT_FOCUS



Did not work.

A vertical field manager manages fields... it's the fields it manages that get and lose focus.

From the javadoc:


Sets the focus to this field.

This method removes the focus from the field that currently has it (if any) and moves it to this field. The screen performs any necessary scrolling to ensure the new focus region is visible.

If this field is a manager, this method gives the focus to this mangaer's first field.

If this field already has the focus, invoking this method has no effect.

You could extend VerticalFieldManger and add a focusable NullField to it. Then you could track the NullField focus and draw a background for VerticalFieldManger on focus.
