Re: Problem with class extend from Field

welcome to the support forums.

you have to implement the abstract methods. drawFocus handles how the focus is drawn while paint draws the whole field.

maybe it would be easier to start with a labelfield and a bitmapfield in a manager instead of a custom field?
