Hi all, I'm developing a peer peer chat using J2ME which display textbox contains a list of online devices/users and images that are arranged on the left side and below the textbox.
The problem is I can't display form based and canvas based UI together, I heard that using CustomItem can solve but I have no idea of how to use it.
Anyone can help me please?

What obstacle is preventing you from using the Form UI for this?

Hi -

I posted a message in response to this yesterday.we lost the thread due to disk crash according to Mark.

The problem you are facing as I understand is that you want to use both lower level API(Canvas etc..) and higher level API (Form, etc) of MIDP in a single dispalyable object. We cannot do that, you can use only one of the two. If you need absolutely need lower level control on the display , you can use Canvas and write you own Form UI element ( not the one provided by MIDP's high level API). There are open source toolkits available which have UI elements developed from MIDP's low level API, you van use them.

Hope this helps ...

Satyam.
