Re: How to set button font color?

you will have to extend the buttonfield class and use graphics.setcolor in the paint method.

To extend the ButtonField class:

 

class MyButtonField extends ButtonField ...yada yada

 

Read the API docs for ButtonField.paint()

 

Override the default implementation of paint like so:

 

protected void paint(Graphics g)

{

    int color = 0x000000; // (some rgb value, or use the Color interface definitions)

    g.setColor(color);

    super.paint(g);

}

 

...or something along those lines!

 

One warning: Buttons are theme-controlled so you may run into problems with some themes injecting text or background colors that conflict with the text color that you select.

 

Probably better to simply create your own buttonfield class.
