i am a beginner in j2me . i am trying to use implicit type of list in my application. normally we will use SELECT_COMMAND if we r going to do anything by clicking the item on the list(remember this is implicit type of list not multiple). Is this the only option that we have to use with implicit type of list or can we use any user defined commands?.
Sure you can use your own Commands. A List is a Displayable, and just like any other Displayable you can use addCommand() to add your own Commands to it. In the commandAction() you can handle those in the usual way (and you can use List.getSelectedIndex() to find what item was selected).
