This article applies to BlackBerry® wireless devices based on Java™.
The default ListField implementation on the BlackBerry device does not differentiate colours of rows. All rows have the same background colour, which is usually white. To add a splash of colour to your application or to differentiate rows, colourize the ListField so that every other row would appear in a different colour. For example, you could modify the ListField so that every other row appears with dark blue colouring, while the highlighted row appears with light blue highlight as shown in this screen shot with the first row highlighted. This screen shot was taken from a BlackBerry 7290 Wireless Handheld™ running BlackBerry Device Software 4.1.
