Hi everyone, i'm a newbie in Java and also in J2ME. I'm practising in J2ME and i want to write an application in which there are a textfield for phone number, and a textbox for message content. But my book only show me how to put a textfield on a form, then display.setCurrent(form) . Please tell me are there a way to put my Form and TextBox together? And i'm a vietnamese, so don't get mad with my English

We get lots worse English than that. But a Form is a container for GUI controls, so the TextBox has to go inside a form. So not only is there a way, you actually have to do it that way. Otherwise it won't work!

Thank you for answering, but i still don't get it. Because Form and TextBox both are extend class of Display, how can i put a TextBox inside a Form. Can you show me some code for example?

And i also have a problem in keyPressed. I'm writing a calculator run on mobile, and when i want to catch the key-up pressed event, i found out there're no keycode for that event. There are KEY_NUM0, KEY_NUM1... but no KEY_UP, KEY_DOWN, KEY_LEFT, KEY_RIGHT and KEY_SELECT (the key at the center). I tried to use the UP, DOWN,... in game action but it didn't work. Thanks for any help, especially if there are code for example.
