I managed to run an application i made on a samsumg sgh-d600 but when i try using the same app on a nokia 5310 it looks terrible in terms of font, and the painting of the comboboxes, my question is, if i'm to make the application compatible to the nokia phone , do i have to set the form sizes to the screen dimensions on the nokia phone?, do i use the setpreferedX methods on Forms? or do i have to look into theming?

Hi guys,
I just thought of a new component that it might be useful to have: a Table
component (the idea comes from netbeans.microedition.TableItem).
I'm sure there are a lot of use cases where a Table component would be
handy.
What do you think?

Hi Matteo,
Me and Shai had several discussions around components such as Table and
Tree, we haven't yet decided if such Components belong to the core API
or to the extensions project.

Hi,
There is no need to call setPrefered... methods the Form detect the
dimensions of the screen automatically.
What we recommend is to create the theme with the fonts (bitmap fonts)
and to replace the theme according to the specific device dimensions.

Yes, create 2 themes the first one will use the bigger Fonts to the
bigger screen size and the 2nd on with smaller Fonts to the smaller
screen size.
