Overview

The font sizes of Series 40 products will be changed in certain product software versions. Thus there may be situations where a MIDlet looks different in the same phone model with another software version.

Symptoms

MIDlets might look different in the listed devices if the devices don't have the same software versions.

Description

The font sizes of Series 40 products will be: SIZE_SMALL = 9 pixels, SIZE_MEDIUM = 12 pixels, and SIZE_LARGE = 16 pixels. The old values are: SIZE_SMALL = 9 pixels, SIZE_MEDIUM = 16 pixels, and SIZE_LARGE = 23 pixels.

Solution

Avoid drawing Strings to the screen so that the location is based on the font size or use fixed values for the location variables.
