I've written a midlet (consisting of several forms) for one of our customers. However they'd like the midlet to change to reflect the colours of their company's branding.
Is it possible to change the colour/background or anything else of the forms & items in a midlet..? (MIDP 2.0).
any help/pointers appreciated,

Yes you can. If you use the Canvas class and create your own class that extends Canvas, you can use the Graphics object in the paint method and change colors.

In this code I fill the background with a color. I don't remember which color this is, but you can use the setColor() method of the Graphics object and change the color. But remember to change it back or you might find your text invisible because it has the same color as the background. I did this that is how I know.

Sorry I should have been more specific, yes I know that you can use the graphics class to draw colours on canvas etc.. but what I am trying to change is the colours of forms, buttons, choicegroups etc.. basically midp2.0 Items.
I don't think it can be done.
