Problem in implementing list..



I am trying to implement the listfield by following the following steps.. but i am not a able to implement.. can u plz write the code by following the steps so that i can see how things go and compare it with my code..



Create a list boxUse a list box to display a list from which users can select one or more values.

1. Import the following classes:•


java.lang.String• net.rim.device.api.ui.component.ListField•



2. Import the net.rim.device.api.ui.component.ListFieldCallback interface.


3. Create a class that implements the ListFieldCallback interface.


private class ListCallback implementsListFieldCallback {


4. Create the items that you want to display in a ListField.


String fieldOne = new String("Marco Cacciacarro");

String fieldTwo = new String("Meredith Wagler");


5. Create an instance of a ListField.


ListField myList = new ListField(0,ListField.MULTI_SELECT);


6. Create an instance of a ListCallback.


ListCallback myCallback = new ListCallback();


7. Set the call back of the ListField to be the ListCallback.




8. Use the ListCallBack object to add items to the ListField.


myCallback.add(myList, fieldOne);

myCallback.add(myList, fieldTwo);


9. Add the ListField to the MainScreen.mainScreen.add(myList);

Re: Problem in implementing list..
