Re: TextBox sample?

i would suggest to use a bitmap for the search button - or use the native buttonfield.

the textbox could be done using a default editfield surrounded with a special manager.

it's a bit on the advanced side of ui manipulation maybe.

basically your manager is bigger than the editfield and uses the paint-method to draw the border.

 

if you develop for OS4.6+ you could also use http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/ui/decor/BorderFactory.html

Is there another way to create the border of TextBox instead of using BorderFactory?

The paint method can only create a single line of RoundRect...

Re: TextBox sample?

if you use fillRoundRect with a special color you can draw bigger "lines".

I use this mechanism for a merry collection of rounded fields and managers in our lib.
