    Re: Menus in Nokia :(

    As you are posting in Java forums I am guessing you are talking about MIDlets and more specifically MIDlets using a high-level UI (like Forms).

    The phone implementation decides the Command placement. You have very limited control of the look and field - you can only say which command is more important or less important.
    Also note that the Command placement is different between S60 and Series 40 phones

    If you want to have full control of the look and feel, you have to use Canvas or use 3rd party libraries, like J2MEPolish

    Alternatively, play around with the type of the command. For the definite rules see page 158-160 of the book ‘Developing Scalable Series 40 Applications’ by Nokia. Make sure not to violate Nokia Interface Guidelines. If you need something on the Left and you have a three button device (Left, OK, Right), you have to go for Canvas as hartti stated.
