Work around ListField painting issue in early versions of BlackBerry Device Software version 4.2.2

This article applies to the following:

  • BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone
  • BlackBerry® Curve™ 8300 smartphone
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.2



Early versions of BlackBerry Device Software version 4.2.2 have an issue with painting ListField UI objects and scrolling. When the cursor is on odd-numbered lines, starting with the first line, the object is not painted. Scrolling to an even-numbered line causes the entire object to be painted.


You can work around this issue by not using the HORIZONTAL_SCROLL style in the Manager, as shown below.



private static final

class TestScreen extends MainScreen {
         private final ObjectListField listField = new ObjectListField(USE_ALL_WIDTH);
         private final String[] lines = { "Line 1", "Line 2", “Line 3", "Line 4", "Line 5", "Line 6" };
         private TestScreen() {
                  super(DEFAULT_MENU | DEFAULT_CLOSE);
                  final Manager man = new VerticalFieldManager(VERTICAL_SCROLL | VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR);
