If you insert a Gauge to an Alert screen, its animation does not work.


In MIDP 2.0 devices it is possible to display Gauge in Alert screens as a progress indicator. The Gauge value can be updated to show progress. However, the animation of the Gauge is now shown at all in S60 2nd Edition devices. Also the title of the Alert is not shown correctly.

How to reproduce

The problem can be reproduced by using the following code extract in a MIDlet:

alert = new Alert("Title", "Alert text", im, AlertType.INFO);
gauge = new Gauge(null, false, 10, 1);

Now, if you try to change the gauge's value by using the Gauge.setValue() method, the change is not shown in the screen.


No solution exists. This will be fixed in the coming Nokia 6630 software versions and in the coming devices.
