typed letteres are not visible after end of field in custom editfield

class CustomEditField extends EditField{

    CustomEditField(String text) {

        super("",text);

    }

    public void layout(int width, int height){

        super.layout(getPreferredWidth(),getPreferredHeight());

        setExtent(getPreferredWidth(),getPreferredHeight());

    }

    public int getPreferredHeight(){

        return super.getPreferredHeight();

    }

    public int getPreferredWidth(){

        return (Display.getWidth()*2/3);

    }

}

Did you enable vertical scrolling in the Manager that contains this field?

I'm pretty sure you need to explicitly enable scrolling. See the Manager javadocs.

 

Also, you are limiting the extent of your field, which may also defeat scrolling.
