    CustomEditField(String text) {

        super("",text);

    }

        super.layout(getPreferredWidth(),getPreferredHeight());

        setExtent(getPreferredWidth(),getPreferredHeight());

    }

Did you enable vertical scrolling in the Manager that contains this field?

Re: typed letteres are not visible after end of field in custom editfield

I'm pretty sure you need to explicitly enable scrolling. See the Manager javadocs.

 

Also, you are limiting the extent of your field, which may also defeat scrolling.
