        public int getPreferredWidth() {
            defaultFont = Font.getDefault();       
            text = "000000000000";
            return defaultFont.getAdvance(text);
        }        
        protected void layout(int width, int height) {
            width = getPreferredWidth();
            height = super.getPreferredHeight();

            super.setExtent(width,getHeight()); 
        }        
        protected void paint(Graphics graphics) {           
            graphics.drawRect(1,1, getPreferredWidth() , getHeight());
            graphics.setBackgroundColor(Color.WHITE);
            graphics.clear();
            super.paint(graphics);
        }
       protected void drawFocus(Graphics graphics, boolean on) {
            graphics.invert(0,0,1,getHeight());

if you just want to change the color you can try
this.focusColour = 0x00FFD700;
this.unfocusColour = Color.WHITE;

bump, I'm having the same problem. Oddly enough it occurs only on the 8830 sim, not the 8703e
