UI Interface Application

Dear Friends,

I need to develop and application using blackberry java, I developed many application before using j2me but now try to use blackberry jde in eclipse. But my problem is that, how can i generate and good user interface, menus like below applications:

BlackBerry App World - DUB Contact Card

BlackBerry App World - Tungle.me for BlackBerry

If someone provide me an example or open source project, i can handle rest of it.
I checked all samples but there are no samples like that

 

 

 

I think this is canvas screen and how blackberry default button was added, or plus signs in form? How can i add them?

Re: UI Interface Application

this is not a canvas screen but a MainScreen (blackberry UI).

the fields are custom fields (with rounded edges, special background, fading text etc)

the plus signs are small bitmaps.

 

I can say that for sure as I have developed this app (Mobility for SAP), together with my colleagues.

Glad that you like the UI :smileyhappy:

Re: UI Interface Application

Dear Simon,

 

Thank you for your prompt and helpfull reply.

 

I liked this application screen really :smileyhappy:

I develop also many  mobile applications with j2me (for mobile and blackberry) and whole my applications are related with SAP :smileyhappy: as You

 

Your design is so interesting and really fine.

I will check MainScreen and custom fields in jde .

 

If you know any open source file related with MainScreen and Custom fileds

Could you please share?

 

Thank You Simon.

Re: UI Interface Application

if you are developing for 4.6+ you can save a lot of customizing by using the decor packages (borderfactory etc).

you can find some samples for rounded edges etc online i guess.

 

as our code runs on 4.2.1+ we have it all hardcoded in graphics etc. cannot share this code, of course.
