Can I paint to an area outside of a verticalFieldManager that's added to a popupscreen?

If you add a verticalFieldManager and a listField to a popupScreen there is an area around the edges of the listField between the border of the popupScreen. Is it possible to draw in that area?

You can use the Decor APIs added in version 4.6.0 of the BlackBerry API set to add a border to managers (rounded included).  Have a look at the decordemo included in the version 4.6.0+ version BlackBerry JDE for an example.

Thank you. That's looks like it should do the job. Will these border api's actually fill in the area between the manager

and the edge of the popupscreen or will it decrease the size of the manager and just put a border around the reduced size manager?
