Default Simple white field to draw on

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,



i tried to get a listfield with different sized rows, but this was not possible. so my next idea is, to get a white field and use the paint method to draw the listfield myself, thoughit must not be selectable, there should be no problem with this.

The problem i encountered is, that when the field gets longer than the screen, i am unable to scroll down.

Heres the class of my custom field:
Code:
public class MessageList extends Field {
	
	private Vector messages = null;
	
	public MessageList(Vector mes) {
		super(NON_FOCUSABLE);
		this.messages = mes;
	}

	protected void layout(int width, int height) {
		setExtent(width, height);
	}

	protected void paint(Graphics graphics) {
		for(int i = 0; i < 400; i = i+50) {
			graphics.drawText("blabla" + Integer.toString(i), 15, i, 0, this.getWidth());
		}
	}

}
The field gets added on a simple mainscreen with scrolling enabled.

Maybe anybode has an idea how to get the scrolling working or how to develop a white scrollable field to draw on.



Regards,

Daniel

Why not have a custom field act as a row and populate a verticalfieldmanager with the fields?
