Set focus on perticular field

I have 5 bitmapfields in horizontalfield manager. When screen is displayed focus is set to first bitmapfield by default. i want to set it to 2nd bitmapfield. how to do it?

HorizontalfieldManager h = new HorizontalFieldManager()


protected void sublayout(int maxWidth, int maxHeight) {
Field f = this.getField(2);
 super.sublayout(maxWidth, maxHeight);


I tried above code. Still focus is set on first field

Re: Set focus on perticular field

Hi Jovinz,


The better approach to set focus after screen loads into stack is,


protected void onUiEngineAttached(boolean attached) {
        UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
               Field f =//get your required field

if(f != null)f.setFocus();
