Re: Increasing the size of checkboxes

have to override layout() in checkbox field to increase the size.

 

here is the code snippet

            public void layout (int width, int height)
            {
                super.layout(width, height);
                setExtent(200, 300); // specify your width and height for checkbox field
            }

with regards,
Vignesh J

Alternatively, try changing the font size.
