How to center image (.png)?

[ Edited ]

Hi its the noobie again. Using the following code setup, how can I include a Field command? (I want to center it)


        mainLogo = Bitmap.getBitmapResource("mainLogo.png");
        bitmap = new BitmapField();


Also if someone could tell me the command to change a buttons font (if its just a simple command)

Thanks so much guys!

Try this for centering the bitmap field


        mainLogo = Bitmap.getBitmapResource("mainLogo.png");
        bitmap = new BitmapField(BitmapField.HCENTER);


For setting buttons font,try the below function


Font f = Font.getDefault().derive(Font.PLAIN, 16);

Re: How to center image (.png)?

you can also create a custom layout manager to place fields:

depending on the manager the HCENTER flag may not be adhered to, you can add the flag to the manager as well, then.

Re: How to center image (.png)?

thanks the image centred perfect.


But for the LabelField font, how could you adjust something like this?


LabelField title = new LabelField(" Hello ", LabelField.USE_ALL_WIDTH|DrawStyle.HCENTER);
