Setting style in labelfield not working

I dont know why,but this line of code does nothing

 

	g.setDrawingStyle(DrawStyle.ELLIPSIS,true);

 I want ellipse style,and i dont want to do it from constructor,rather from the paint method.So can anyone guide me into it?

Re: Setting style in labelfield not working

as far as i know dynamic changes in the drawing style don't work properly. you could replace the field with another labelfield where this style is set.

Re: Setting style in labelfield not working

Thats the problem developing for Blackberry,there are many things which are listed in the API and its documentation is clear,but when you implement,it doesnt work properly.Its so frustrating.
