Moving Icons around in GridFieldManager

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

Trying to develop an app which contains icons arranged in a grid using GridFieldManager.

 

Currently icons' positions are fixed once they are added to the grid.

 

Is there a way to make it such that users are able to rearrange the positions of icons within the grid? e.g. move to another blank spot within the grid.

 

A good example would be like the BB menu where we can highlight the icon, select "Move" and choose the new location.

 

Appreciate any help I can get.

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

I am not very expericned with the GridFieldManager, but the basic solution is to to call Manager.delete() and then Manager.insert() where you want the fields to be

You can call the invalidate method on your screen to force it to be redrawn.  You should not pop and push a screen just to have it redraw itself.

Re: Moving Icons around in GridFieldManager

Just as a follow up to anyone who is interested. I had to delete both the fields which i had to swap places and do a Manager.insert to insert into the corresponding index. Then i call Field.setFocus and moveFocus to complete this action.
