Re: Objectchoicefield align center

Try Using this code it will help u make Objectchoicefield centred

ObjectChoiceField objectChoiceField = new ObjectChoiceField("", choices,0, ObjectChoiceField.FIELD_HCENTER )
{
protected void setExtent(int width, int height)
{
super.setExtent(150, 50);
}
};
add(objectChoiceField);

Please do not ever override setExtent unless you really have no choice. But I have never had to do this to achieve the effect I wanted and can not actually think of a reason to do so. 

 

I say again, do NOT override setExtent. 

 

ObjectChoiceField.FIELD_HCENTER can be used to center an ObjectChoiceField - you just need to make sure the Manager that contains this Field is actually also using the full width of the area it has available to it.  See more here:
