just like tickers in the lists, i want to display Marquee on a Canvas. (Only on Blackberry, because in other J2ME supporting devices it runs fine in MIDlet)
I have used Timer-Task , and with some logic I am shifting the position of the string.
I have done it using the repaint() and Thread,sleep();
In Blackberry the string is not moving as in MIDlet. Instead it only moves when the trackerball rolls.
I want the app stop waiting for the trackerball event and just moves on showing marquee.
It seems the app dosn't respond to the repaint() call.
I have just 24 hours left for doing that. Maybe I can borrow some more time but at least today I am in great hurry.
