Running UIDemo

UIDemo showcases a variety of MIDP user interface element implementations. Most elements have some interactive capability (navigate and select) and some allow keypad or keyboard input.

Input interaction is similar across demos. You can choose items from lists or type in data.

This demo implements three list selection methods:

When entering data, you can use the soft menu to apply one of the following input types to text boxes and fields (note, some elements do not use all input types). When a field is selected, the soft Menu label displays Qwerty. Open the menu and you see the input types numbered 1 through 5.

  1. Qwerty. Any character on the keyboard

  2. 123. Any numeral

  3. ABC. Any letter

  4. Predict. Predicts next character based on prior input

  5. Symbols. Opens a list of symbols; click to make a selection.

  6. Virtual. Click on a virtual keyboard to enter data.

The Qwerty, 123, and ABC categories act as filters. For example, if you assign 123 to a field and you type “abc”, nothing is entered in the field.

CustomItem. This demo features text fields, and text fields in table form. To type in the table, select a cell, then click to open a text entry panel and type your input. From the menu, select OK.

StringItem. Displays labels, a hyperlink, and a button. The soft menu action varies depending on the selected element.

Gauge. Interactive, non-interactive, indefinite and incremental gauges.

Alert. Uses pop-ups to display alerts. Set the alarm type and the length of the timeout from drop lists. Select the alert type and select the Show soft button.

ChoiceGroup. Radio buttons, check boxes, and pop-ups on one screen.

List. Select exclusive, implicit, or multiple to display the list type on a subsequent screen.

TextBox. Use text fields, radio buttons, check boxes, and pop-ups. Select a text box type and press the Show button.

TextField. Text fields with the six input types

DateField. Set date and time using drop lists.

Ticker. A scrolling ticker.
