Default ButtonField - Is there an easy way to set the width?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know of an easy way to set the width of a ButtonField?

(Or any other field for that matter).

Thanks,

Mike

*: Create a custom class extending the field you want to modify
*: override getPrefferedWidth, return the size you want in pixels.

Default Thanks! That worked.

Thanks Bemshaswing!
That's exactly what I needed


In case it might be helpful to someone else, here is my code:

The overridden ButtonField class:
Code:
class MyButtonField extends ButtonField
{
    private int width;

    MyButtonField( String label, int Width)
    {   super( label);
        width = Width;
    }
    public int getPreferredWidth()
    {   return width;
    }
}
And later, here's when I instantiate it:
Code:
private MyButtonField  btnB1 =  new MyButtonField( "Test", 100);

Thanks again,

Mike
