Problem with ObjectListField

[ Edited ]

Hello I'm a beginner programmer blackberry.

Develop a project under the JDE 4.6.1.

Following problem.

I have a class (in part):

public class CustomerListField extends ObjectListField implements ListFieldCallback, ChangeListener
private PagedDataFetcher dataFetcher = new CustomerListPagedDataFetcher();

public CustomerListField() {
try {
super.set(new Object[db_.getDataAccess().getListCount()]);
} catch (Throwable e) { } }

public void drawListRow(ListField listField, Graphics g, int index, int y, int width) {
CustomerListItem currentRow = (CustomerListItem) get(listField, index);

public Object get(ListField list, int index) {
try {
return dataFetcher.getRowAtIndex(index);
} catch (Throwable e) { return null; } }
Where, db_.getDataAccess () - database, getListCount - getting the number of items in the list, CustomerListItem - the structure of a list item
/ / To obtain the data

public class CustomerListPagedDataFetcher extends PagedDataFetcher {
protected Vector get(int from, int to) throws Exception {
return DataAccess.getDataAccess().getLists(from, to);
} }

The problem should, if adding an item to the list of error NullPointerException in method measureListRow

CustomerListField(ObjectListField).measureListRow(ListField, int, int)
CustomerListField(ListField).layout(int, int) CustomerListField(ObjectListField).layout(int, int)
VList(Manager).layoutChild(Field, int, int)

/** * layout for list */
final class VList extends VerticalFieldManager {
private final ObjectListField list;
int maxHeight = Display.getHeight() - getFont().getHeight() * 2 - 5;
VList(ObjectListField list) {
this.list = list;

public int getPreferredHeight() {
return 45 * list.getSize();

protected void sublayout(int width, int height) {
super.sublayout(width, height); setExtent(width, maxHeight);
} }

Help solve the problem

Re: Problem with ObjectListField

Hi. Check this line


super.set(new Object[db_.getDataAccess().getListCount()]);


you create object with array of nulls.

Re: Problem with ObjectListField

The problem is that the JDE 4.5 and it works. I understand that this "set" creates an empty array of the desired length and then using the "get" it receives from the database necessary elements
