nested Menu

Hi all,


I need some help.

Below is what I'm tring to do,


icon11      icon2      icon3   icon4             <--- HorizontalFieldManager1


submenu_icon1      submenu_icon2            <---- HorizontalFieldManager2



TextField1                                             <----VerticalFieldManager1




when trackball is over "icon1" highlight icon1 and submenu_icon1 and if trackball is over icon2 show tree fields also and so on.


But the problem is that I can highlight subMenu_icon1 but I can not highlight icon1 and submenu_icon1 same time.

How can I do that?

Does anyone has example for this or help me?

Re: nested Menu

only one field can have the focus at a time. you can, however, simulate having the focus by overwriting the paint method and drawing the focused state yourself.
