High level components in LCDUI
MIDP provides a set of both high and low-level APIs to create user interfaces. Both have their pros and cons: while working with high-level interfaces is usually faster and more cross-compatible, by using low-level graphics you can create more attractive and customized applications.
This set of APIs is useful for those applications where portability is important, since interfaces built by using high-level components are automatically adapted to different display resolutions, orientations and input methods.
To preserve the portability, you have a little control on the visual appearance (i.e., you cannot change the colors and the fonts of the component).
Here is a list of code examples showing how to use specific high-level user interface components:
- Multiple list
- Implicit list
- Exclusive list
- Choice group
- Popup choice group
- Date field
- Image item
