Default What kind of text box to choose?

Please Login to Remove!


I'm new with the Blackberry API and I'm porting a game from J2ME to the new API. I only use a FullScreen object where I make all the drawing myself, I don't use any objects from the API. But I need something like the TextBox from J2ME where the user can write his name if he breakes the record. I tried using EditField, I read in a previous post about it, but it won't show up on the screen. Here is how I do it:

public void editNote(String text) {
    input = new EditField(inputTexts[0], text, 255, Field.EDITABLE);
    gameScreen.noMessage = true;
I also need some kind of event to be able to close it when the user hits an "ok", but I suppose the class already has this implemented.

I don't know if EditField is the best choice for what I need, so if there is a better option please tell me. Thank you.
