add this method..



 protected void sublayout(int width, int height) {
     super.sublayout(width, height);
     setPosition(x, y);



and set x & y co ordinates.


Edit:  is right there is no need of setExtent.

Re: position popup screen

You don't need to setExtent in sublayout override - super.sublayout does that for you.

If you ever need to change the screen's position on some event - change your x and y and invoke updateLayout().
