How to draw mutli line text in the listfield? use drawText method

Because many text is too long to show all text. so i hope i can draw the mutli line text. or how to make the text in  the listfield scrollable.

graphics.drawText(storenameture, 0, y, DrawStyle.TOP, width);
  graphics.drawText(mallnameture, 0, y,DrawStyle.BOTTOM,width);

i use the DrawStyle.top and bottom . but can not show the mutli line.

Thanks!

first, use setRowHeight with the double of the font height.
use drawtext normally the first time, add half the rowheight to y for the second line

Re: How to use line break in listfield

Where exactly you ahve stuck? Have you able to display the ListField on screen? Have you tried with setting the rowheight and displaying the listField?

Re: How to draw mutli line text in the listfield? use drawText method

Simon's code is pretty specific so I'm not sure what you don't understand.  Remember that this Thread is talking about the ListField, which is a specific Field used In BlackBerry UI.  If you are not using a ListField, then this code will not be applicable. 

 

Most usual Blackberry Fields (e.g. RichTextField) will create multiple lines by themselves.

If you don't already know ListField, then this is not a great Thread to start the learning process.  Search for easier examples.

 

If you know how to use ListField, I think Simon's code makes sense as it is - these are just lines you will code in your drawListRow.  What specifically do you not understand?
