In my apps on bb platform i got used to adding my custom objects in a list and implementing the display of these objects myself, using the objects properties as displayed text and images. It was then easy to retrieve these objects on selection, etc.
I dont see this in the list examples i have been looking at for pb, I see an option to set the label of the inserted list element and also set an icon.
How can i add my object to the list and display say the name property of this object?
Thanks in advance.

Yes I am using the qnx list. If I wanted to add the object in this list, how would i access this object in draw() for example in the cell renderer?
Another question which is very important to me is can the playbook lists have variable row heights?

John, thanks again for your help.
I have implemented my own list using container and scroll pane. This is going to be a chat window, i have done similar on the smartphone platform.
I am concerned when you say qnx is not so good at hanling large amount of items, is there any other approach which will be better for large items?
Otherwise, i am using the following to auto scrol my custom list, however, when i try to manually scroll it gets messed up and goes back to the start.
if(mainContainer.numChildren > 4)
if(scroll.scrollY == 0)
scroll.scrollY = 250;
scroll.scrollY = scroll.scrollY + 60;
Am i missing something for auto scroll to keep items in view?

I think im getting the hang of lists now, i will do some testing with custom implemented lists containing large amount of items and act accordingly.
