ListField problem



I am creating a list field.

listfield = new ListField(len) {

protected void layout(int width, int height) {
super.layout(width, height);

setExtent(currentWidth - ConstantsUI.LIST_WIDTH,
len * 72); // len is the no. of items in list.



and adding this listfield on 

mainVodManager = new VerticalFieldManager(VERTICAL_SCROLL) {
			protected void paintBackground(Graphics graphics) {

			protected void sublayout(int maxWidth, int maxHeight) {
				super.sublayout(maxWidth, maxHeight);
				if (ConstantsUI.ScreenState == "land") {
							currentWidth - ConstantsUI.LIST_WIDTH - 5,
									+ ConstantsUI.NAME_HEIGHT + 10);

				} else {
					if (currentWidth == 360 && currentHeight == 480) {

						setExtent(currentWidth - ConstantsUI.LIST_WIDTH
								- 5, ConstantsUI.CHANNEL_HEIGHT
								+ ConstantsUI.EPG_HEIGHT
								+ ConstantsUI.APP_ICON_HEIGHT + 10);
					} else
						setExtent(currentWidth - ConstantsUI.LIST_WIDTH
								- 5, ConstantsUI.HEIGHT
								+ ConstantsUI.EPG_HEIGHT
								+ ConstantsUI.APP_ICON_HEIGHT + 10);


It is working fine.But when i rotate my device.Now the scrolling is not working fine.Even list get disappears.On sublayout of screen i am calling deleteall and then call the  code to create list again.But it didnot work as expected.

Re: ListField problem

Check your code and I suspect you will find that you get an Exception, probably something like "layout called while layout in progress".


You can not do things that will alter the laying out, like remove Fields, in a layout method (which includes sublayout.


Instead of doing this, use an invokeLater and do the delete in the invokeLater.  That will itself force a re-layout of the Manager, so you go through sublayout twice.
