Simple TextFilter problems.

Hello, I'm trying to do a numeric text filter on my RichTextField, this is my code:

 

RichTextField De = new RichTextField("",RichTextField.EDITABLE); De.setFilter(TextFilter.get(TextFilter.NUMERIC));

 

But I get 2 errors of the same type that say:

cannot find symbol
symbol  : variable TextFilter

 

Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance.

Try

 

RichTextField De = new RichTextField("",RichTextField.EDITABLE);

De.setFilter(new NumericTextFilter());

Are you fairly new to Java?

 

Try adding an import statement for classes that the compiler can't find, like the followng:

 

import net.rim.device.api.ui.text.NumericTextFilter;
