In some of our interface we have a list of large fields organized vertically in the device's screen. Some times they are larger than the height of the screen so the content of the field does not appear completely. The problem is that when we scroll, the scroll is not smooth. It jumps to the next field and we are not able to see the entire content of the previous field.
A good example on how we would like it to work is the GMAIL application for BlackBerry. The control can be large with a lot of text but the scroll allows you to view the entire content of the control.
thank you very much for all the help as usual.

If a text based field is focusable, you should be able to scroll within it.
Here is an example of a custom field that provides scrolling within itself.

Thanks Mark but that is not the case. Another example. Let's say, for example, that I use multiple BitmapFields one after the other to display multiple images. Now let's say the images are larger than the screen. When I scroll down, the focus "jump" from one image to the other so I can not scroll each image in a way that I see the entire image. Not sure if this is clear or not. If not I will prepare a small video to demo the behavior.

I think sample code to do what Mark has suggested, made available by another forum member, can be found via this thread.
