 Hi All,

Could any one please help me in converting the corresponding j2me graphics functions

using  Blackberry Graphics object 


   g.setClip(x, y, dx, dy);


If there is no direct solution, please suggest the alternative way to acheive this.

Re: setClip and getClip functions in Blackberry

The Graphics.getClippingRect() method can be used to get the clipping region.  This can not be modified on a BlackBerry Graphics object.  Instead, you can specify a clipping region when marking a section to be redrawn.  Have a look at the Screen and/or Field.invalidate(int x, int y, int width, int height) method.
