I'd like to decrease the font size of my first MIDlet.
The only way I can find is to use the setFont() method,
which works fine in my emulator, but not on my phone.
Problem is that setFont() is as from MIDP 2.0 and my phone
(Nokia 6310i) only supports MIDP 1.0.
Is tyere a way to use smaller font or text size with MIDP 1.0
only ? Alternatively, can the phone's JVM be upgraded to
support MIDP 2.0 ?
Thanks for the reply Tinke.
I thought about using Graphics, but it seems overkill
for a char-based midlet. I am just using a List with two
Commands. I'm not sure if and how that can be mixed with
Graphics. All I can find to get a Graphics object is
The advice Tinke gave you is only relevant if you are using a Canvas subclass as your displayable object. If you're using Forms and Lists, then I'm sorry to inform you there is nothing (yes, nothing) you can do to change the font used. It is completely up to the phone.
