Accepted Solution

Multiple List Field Slider

What is the API used to have multiple list fields on one screen similar to AppWorld does the Top 25 for (Newest, Free, Paid, Themes, Updated).  


I am using PictureScrollField now, but when i transition to a new page it just wipes the screen and repaints the new list.

Re: Multiple List Field Slider

Are you looking at a 5.0, 6.0 or earlier solution?

It's a 6.0 API. Check out "net.rim.device.api.ui.component.pane". Don't have any samples off the top of my head.

 

RIM has the source code so they probably ported it solely for their apps on 5.0.

Re: Multiple List Field Slider

Take a look at the DEV17 session download from DEVCON 2010.  In there you will find sample code for  the TabManagerDemo which should get you started
