How to change the highlight color of a buttonfield

Hi, I've been trying to change the highlight color of my buttonfield for a long time now and I can't seem to find the right method to do it. I tried overriding the onFocus method and set my own backgroud, but then it only change the background on the text part of the button, not the whole button. The method drawFocus doesn't get called when it's on focus, so I can't override that, and I can't use drawHighlightRegion as well because it's final. Does anyone have any idea, please? Thank you very much

drawHighlightRegion is the correct method. as it is final you can't overwrite it but have to create your own field.

Ah man, there is no other way than to create my own buttonfield, huh? Ok, I'll have to go down that road then. Thank you Simon

Re: How to change the highlight color of a buttonfield

buttonfield is quite complicated and has at least one bug, too.
personally i use a modified bitmapfield for buttons. makes the application bigger, of course.
