Filp animation in blackberry Field

I want to create a custom Field to show news. I have 20 news headlines, but only one will be visible. The field will have a timer that will change the new headline every 3 seconds. Creating a timer task is fine. But the real problem is, the animation while the headline change. I want to create a flip animation. How to do flip animation on the field?


I have used screen transition in bb. But that does animation for the entire screen. But my requirement is to flip a screen widget.


Looking to develop for 5.x and above.

Re: Filp animation in blackberry Field

there is no API for that afaik, you would have to do that lowlevel (overwriting paint)
