Default MIDlet creation

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to create a MIDlet (platform independent) that would use the BB UI appearance if it's used on a BB device, and the normal appearance on other platforms?

I am creating MIDlet with just a simple text (StringItem) and a button (using Item.BUTTON) on the screen. It looks ok on the J2ME SDK simulator but when i convert the MIDlet to .cod and run it using the BB 8800 simulator, the application is very poor looking. The cursors goes through ever character of the string and the button is seen as text only and can only be pressed by opening the menu and selecting "Press"

by and large, if you want to have an app with the BB u/i experience, you'll have to implement the gui objects from the blackberry api.
