Re: Scroll happening but Vertical Field Manager Not Moving

Another solution can be reimplement the onFocus method on the field you're adding to the manager:


protected void onFocus(int direction) {
Manager manager;
int managerHeight = -1;
int managerScroll = -1;
int currentTop = -1;

manager = this.getManager();
if(manager != null) {
managerHeight = manager.getPreferredHeight();
managerScroll = manager.getVerticalScroll();
currentTop = this.getTop();

if(direction == 1 && currentTop > (managerScroll + managerHeight)) {
} else if(direction == -1 && currentTop < managerScroll) {

Re: Scroll happening but Vertical Field Manager Not Moving

If you are still having troubles with the fields not being accesible, did you try invalidateing the main manager?

Re: Scroll happening but Vertical Field Manager Not Moving

There is something really strange in that for the focused field to become fully visible the field with focus must extends to the edge of the "row" manager. Try it by creating a vertical field manager, add custom "rows" which are managers and each one contains two fields. First set only the left field to focusable. Notice how the scrolling doesn't work. Set both to focusable and observe that it works.


So my solution to this problem is:

create a field called FakeField. When layouting the "row" ensure the fake field is set to position 0,0 and has the same width and height as the manager. This should be your only focusable field. This has fixed it for me.
