Hi guys,

I think I found a bug on net.rim.device.api.ui.Font API on JDE 4.6.0.

If you try to use Font.DROP_SHADOW_LEFT_EFFECT you got this error message: "DROP_SHADOW_LEFT_EFFECT has private access in net.rim.device.api.ui.Font"


All ok if you use Font.DROP_SHADOW_RIGHT_EFFECT.


Of course all is ok with JDE 4.3.0.


How I can report this kind of bugs to RIM ??

Neither Font.DROP_SHADOW_LEFT_EFFECT or Font.DROP_SHADOW_RIGHT_EFFECT are listed in the JavaDocs.  This means they should not be used by third party applications.
