Using a Textfield to switch to displayables

I'm working with java me, I built an app using forms displayables. I'm trying to switch to other forms, based on the user'sinput in a textfield item. For example, I want the user to be able to type in the number "1" in the textfield and then be taken to form1 or type in "2" and be taken to form2 etc.
Here's what I did.
I added a command to the textfield item and listen on it to read textfield contents and then compare the contents as a string, to switch forms. I don't know whymy code isn't working. I think maybe there's something I'm missing or my logicis not right. I'd really appreciate any help on this please.
form.setCommandListener(new CommandListener() {
public void commandAction(Command command, Displayable displayable) {
if (command == getTextFieldItemCommand()) {
if ("1".equals(TextField.getString())) {
switchDisplayable(null, form1);
} else if ("2".equals(TextField.getString())){
switchDisplayable(null, form2);

Dont do like this you just in command and display you have to set display inwhich you want to display like . . . Use this Display.getDisplay(f);

f is a form that you want to show , in any command you will add this if got error then tell me i will help you
