TextBox initial input mode

Working on a midlet and having trouble with input.  The BlackBerry default seems to be to start all input with the initial letter uppercase.  For authentication input (username, password), obviously I would rather this be lowercase.  Trying this:


        teBox = new TextBox(title, text, max, constraints);



However it seems to have no effect.  Is there a better BlackBerry-specific way to achieve this?

Re: TextBox initial input mode

The BlackBerry specific way would be to use a BasicEditField (or derrivitive of) and use a TextFilter with a TextFilter.LOWERCASE style.
