    Smile swt.mobile.ListBox setfont problem in Detailtext

    hi

    i can not changing font-size of the Detail-text of swt.mobile.ListBox , my source code is below, please help me to find out what is solution for that?

    import org.eclipse.ercp.swt.mobile.ListBox;
    import org.eclipse.ercp.swt.mobile.MobileShell;
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    MobileShell currentShell = new MobileShell(Display.getCurrent(), SWT.MAX);
    currentShell.setLayout(new FillLayout(SWT.VERTICAL));
    String[] chpNames;
    .
    //at here i get some detail in String array in "chpNames"
    .
    .
    ..
    .
    CustomListBoxItem[] chapters = null;
    chapters = new CustomListBoxItem[chpNames.length];

    for(int i=0; i < chpNames.length;i++) {

    chapters[i] = new CustomListBoxItem(chpNames[i],false);

    }
    static final class CustomListBoxItem extends ListBoxItem {

    public CustomListBoxItem(String name,boolean voiceNoteExist) {
    this.setDetailText(name);
    this.setDetailIcons(icon);
    if(voiceNoteExist)
    this.setDetailIcons(iconSpeaker);
    }
    }
    ListBox listBox = new ListBox(currentShell, SWT.SINGLE|SWT.V_SCROLL|SWT.RESIZE,ListBox.LB_STYLE_NO_HEADING_TEXT | ListBox.LB_MOD_SHOW_DETAIL_ICONS);

    try {
    font23 =new Font(currentShell.getDisplay(),"Courier",6,SWT.NORMAL);
    listBox.setFont(font23);
    System.out.println("exception is not coming");
    }
    catch(Exception er){
    System.out.println("exception "+er);
    }

    //this method is using to change font-size of Detail-text of ListBox(specify in eswt API)--listBox.setFont(font23);

    when i run apps i see the printstatement is:--exception is not coming

    I have also find the limitation for the setfont(Font f) method of ListBox(has no effect)
    http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...CF112D8E6.html

    so please help me in that point "can i override the method of setfont(Font f) of ListBox and then i set the font-size of DetailText of ListBox" if you have any idea and some related code link, any example code then please give me that link or give me some new idea ?

    Re: swt.mobile.ListBox setfont problem in Detailtext

    Actually I don;'t know if swt is any different than MIDP but MIDP for example doesnt recognize a "courier" Font, it just knows three standard Fonts.. And three standard sizes...
    Have you tried placing the
    listBox.setFont(font23);
    in a try-catch and see if something happens in regards to thrown exceptions ?

    Re: swt.mobile.ListBox setfont problem in Detailtext

    Setting Font to ListBox is not supported due to limitations in the platform. Follow this link for complete list of eSWT for S60 limitations:
    http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...CF112D8E6.html

    By the way, in eSWT, you have access to all the fonts existing in the device.
    To get the full list of fonts installed in the device use:

    Display.getCurrent().getFontList(null, true); // for scalable fonts
    Display.getCurrent().getFontList(null, true); // for non-scalable fonts

    Also you can use FontDialog to visually preview all the fonts of the device.
