Display Image from URL in Application


I have an application with some BitmapFields and some LabelFields and I would need to display an image (in png) from a website (www.mypage.com/images/logo.png) in one of the BitmapFields in my application.

How do I do that?


When I add an image from the resource, I add it like that:



add(new BitmapField(Bitmap.getBitmapResource( "image.png" ),BitmapField.FIELD_LEFT));


Can someone help me on how to add it from the internet/url?
