Context menu on Custom EditField?

Quick Q... I have this simple custom EditField and now I've lost the context menu (I need cut and paste)...


Can someone please point out what to override to get it back?





public class EditFieldStyled extends EditField{
	public EditFieldStyled(long style) {
	public EditFieldStyled() {
	public void paint(Graphics g) {
		int _oColor = g.getColor();
		g.drawRect(0, 0, getWidth(),getHeight());

Re: Context menu on Custom EditField?

Isn't it great how just asking a question on this forum enables you to solve your own problems?


The EditFields were on a PopupScreen which does not have a default context menu. So you just have to modify the Style of the PopupScreen as follows...



public MyPopupScreen(){
	super( new VerticalFieldManager(),DEFAULT_MENU);
