Styling a BlackBerry Application to Look Like an iPhone

I am porting an application from iPhone to BlackBerry. BlackBerry apps tend not to look as polished as iPhone, but naturally, I would like to maintain as much polish as I can, without breaking any important UI conventions. Are there any UI components to make this??

Blackberry - Custom size EditField

I am sticking all the fields in a HorizontalFieldManager, which I add to the dialog. Unfortunately, the first EditField consumes all the space on the first line. I have tried to override the getPreferredWidth() method of the EditField by creating my own class extending BasicEditField, but have had no success, any body have suggestion to fix this error??

BlackBerry - Custom menu toolbar

Hi I'm a beginner in BlackBerry programming, I need to replace in my application the default menu (when you press the menu button) by a custom menu, horizontal. The best to describe is I want the same result as the WeatherEye application for BlackBerry, any suggestion will be appreciated

You ask a load of questions, too many for anyone to answer at once, so most people won't want to start! 

 

I would stick with one problem and try to resolve that on one Thread, and once you have that out of the way, then start a new Thread with a new problem.  This has the advantage that you get more focus, and it also means that you can take the knowledge you find in one Thread forwards to the next question.  I suspect that are lot of your questions are related, so by solving one you will change or in fact understand how to solve another problem without needing to post a question. 

 

You also need to do a load of research to help you with your questions.  Make sure you search the forum before you ask,as  you will typically find your questions have been asked before.  For example, your problem with Fields filling up HorizontalFieldManager is a favorite, it is all to do with the width that certain fields ask for.  This question has been asked and answered many times on the forum. . 

 

In terms of Ui components, you might like to start by looking at this:

to demonstrate the sort of thing it is possible to do.

 

I would also recommend:

Peter, originally he did post a new thread for EACH subject. In the Curve support forums, and after reporting these 75+ threads, the moderator chose at their discretion to merge all of these posts in to one thread. I, too, think separate threads per topic would have been wise, but that was the mod's action.
