Re: editfield with non editable action and multi line

First of all you can edit text in a read only edit field unless you are programing it.

Why don't you use a LabelField if you don't want the user to edit it and also the LabelField is one line.

Re: editfield with non editable action and multi line

do u want your contents to scroll inside the edit field when data goes beyond 1 line:


for that put your editfield inside a horizontalFieldmanager enabled with Horizontal scroll

u must create the editfield with property : no new line

Re: editfield with non editable action and multi line

if you want your EditField not be editable just override  it's keyChar method :


protected boolean keyChar(char key, int status, int time) {
        return true;
    //    return super.keyChar(key, status, time);

Re: editfield with non editable action and multi line

the property editfield.No_NewLine will work fine for single line but if u want to fix the text in single line u must generate an event for fixed number of charcters will enter into the editfield.
