I'm developing a J2ME application, and I need to show a .png picture, then right beneath it, a list of strings from which the user can select one. Since you can't append an image to a List, I tried using a Form, appending an ImageItem to it, then appending an ChoiceGroup with the options. This works very well on the Sun WTK emulator.
But now, I tried it on my phone (Nokia 5800) and it only shows the beginning of the options, since it will only let them fit on a single line. So, instead of having:
- I had a lovely evening yesterday.
- I had dinner with some friends.
It will show something like:
- I had a lov...
- I had dinne...
Which obviously it's not ideal. However, if I select 1 option, the complete text appears hovering in a little box.
The problem is, I tried this on Nokia S60 3rd edition emulator, and the little box doesn't appear, only the options cut short.
Is there any way to get around this to have an image then a list of options that the user can select? I've been reading about Custom Items, but it seems very complicated for essentially something that should be very simple. Maybe someone knows an already done implementation of a Custom Item that does this?
Any help at all will be much appreciated :-) Thanks!
