Re: placing ListFields

A ListField is designed to take up the entire width of the screen.


However, there are a couple of ways you can accomplish this.  You could use the new GridFieldManager class that was added in BlackBerry device software version 5.0 to lay out a selection of fields.  Or if you need to support older versions, you could design a screen based of the following sample.


Create a screen with stationary headings
