1) Off the top of my head, I'd say that you can detect the scroll actions on a list, only when a selection is made (ie. changing the state).  This is really more appropriate for a ChoiceGroup rather than a list.

2) You can't use an ItemStateListener on a TextBox, because a TextBox extends Screen, not Item.  You can have an ItemStateListener on a TextField, if that helps.

is't something like this:
public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable s)
{
      if (c == List.SELECT_COMMAND || c == cmOkOptions)
      {
            switch (myList.getSelectedIndex())
            {
                  case 0:
                        break;
            }
      }
      else if (c == cmBackOptions)
      {
            display.setCurrent(backScreen);
      }
}

>> You can't use an ItemStateListener on a TextBox, because a TextBox extends Screen, not Item.  You can have an ItemStateListener on a TextField, if that helps.

is't possible to have onkeypress event?


Actually what i want to do is when the user is scrolling the list or entering something in the textbox then i will set display.flashBacklight(10000);

so any idea on how to implement this?

thanks

The commandAction will only be called when the user activates one of the commands in the list (eg. by pressing the button in the centre of the joypad).  Moving a selection up and down in a list doesn't generate any events that you can capture.

There is no onkeypress event for the high level GUI widgets.  Canvas has keyPressed(), keyRepeated() and keyReleased().

If you're using MIDP-2.0, you could create your own CustomItems.  This should allow you to capure the keyPressed/Repeated/Released events.

AFAIK you can't do this.  It's totally under the control of the operating system/virtual machine implementation.

I'm interesting on the CustomItems. So where can find the tutorial, API and sample code?
