Re: how to move center part of the screen as scrollable

Screen of the style will be no vertical scroll

For header part you can use vertical field manager with no scroll and override method sublayout

protected void sublayout(int maxWidth, int maxHeight)
                 maxHeight =  10;//height of the header potion
                  maxWidth = Graphics.getScreenWidth() ;
                  super.sublayout(maxWidth, maxHeight);
                  setExtent(maxWidth, maxHeight);     

and add to this manager to screen.

For body part you can use Vartical Field Manager with scroll style and override sublayout  method

and in the same way you can use your value of height which is applicable for scollable.

For trailer part use Vartical Field Manager with no scroll style and override sublayout  method in the same way


I think,it will help to you.
