Here is a J2ME class for gradients drawing, supporting both horizontal and vertical gradients.

This could be useful to substitute background gradient images with graphics drawn by code.

package com.jappit.wiki.gradientrect.graphics;
 
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Graphics;
 
public class Gradient
{
public static final int VERTICAL = 0;
public static final int HORIZONTAL = 1;
 
public static void gradientBox(Graphics g, int color1, int color2, int left, int top, int width, int height, int orientation)
{
int max = orientation == VERTICAL ? height : width;
 
for(int i = 0; i < max; i++)
{
int color = midColor(color1, color2, max * (max - 1 - i) / (max - 1), max);
 
g.setColor(color);
 
if(orientation == VERTICAL)
g.drawLine(left, top + i, left + width - 1, top + i);
else
g.drawLine(left + i, top, left + i, top + height - 1);
}
}
 
static int midColor(int color1, int color2, int prop, int max)
{
int red =
(((color1 >> 16) & 0xff) * prop +
((color2 >> 16) & 0xff) * (max - prop)) / max;
 
int green =
(((color1 >> 8) & 0xff) * prop +
((color2 >> 8) & 0xff) * (max - prop)) / max;
 
int blue =
(((color1 >> 0) & 0xff) * prop +
((color2 >> 0) & 0xff) * (max - prop)) / max;
 
int color = red << 16 | green << 8 | blue;
 
return color;
}
}

and here is a sample Canvas using the gradientBox method (the final effect is shown in the screenshot at beginning of this article):

package com.jappit.wiki.gradientrect.display;
 
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Canvas;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Graphics;
 
import com.jappit.wiki.gradientrect.graphics.Gradient;
 
public class GradientRectCanvas extends Canvas {
 
protected void paint(Graphics g)
{
int halfWidth = getWidth() / 2;
int halfHeight = getHeight() / 2;
 
Gradient.gradientBox(g, 0xffffff, 0xff0000, 0, 0, halfWidth, halfHeight, Gradient.HORIZONTAL);
 
Gradient.gradientBox(g, 0xff0000, 0xffffff, halfWidth, 0, halfWidth, halfHeight, Gradient.VERTICAL);
 
Gradient.gradientBox(g, 0xffff00, 0x00ffff, 0, halfHeight, halfWidth, halfHeight, Gradient.VERTICAL);
 
Gradient.gradientBox(g, 0x00ff00, 0x0000ff, halfWidth, halfHeight, halfWidth, halfHeight, Gradient.VERTICAL);
}
 
}
