Hello,

I am writing a custom list, however my problem is how I make a long text to be wrap into more then one line instead of getting cut.

I will appreciate any help.

Hiya,

With MIDP1.0, some phones will wrap the text of List elements automatically, but (as you've seen) some won't. You have no control over it.

But with MIDP2.0, there is a method called setFitPolicy where you can specify wrapping.

Your only real solution to cover all MIDP1.0 phones is to create your own Displayable using the Canvas to create your own type of list where you could set the attributes however you wanted, but this would take quite a lot of code.

Cheers,
James
