OK, looking at your code right now. Fyi, a few weeks ago I forked the project temporarily to work on KUAL 2 changes and added a NORTH button for the menu dive-in trail. Hastily looking at your commit it seems that you added a NORTH gap component. Will that prevent adding my NORTH button? Anyway, today I'm going to manually merge your changes into my code base and push it to my forked project so you can have a look - we'll take it from there. Thanks.
P.S. I'm a totally blind driver on older devices - I only have a KT - so I depend on you/others to tell me what GUI updates really do/look when they run on K3/K4/DX

I'll build it, run it, screenie it. Just say the word.

Like "this" close to meeting our Paperwhite / Kindle 3 targets also.
I will make a phone call today about getting you a lower device in full working order.

DX, 3, 4 Screenshots happy to provide in the meantime

I'm building it in my fork as we speak. Hold on...

update: builds fine, looks fine and dandy on KT, nice job ixtab!
twobob, I'm going to upload this build to knetconnect RSN so you can take screenies on K3...

done: PM'd you the link

One request. Need to make the "middle-est" button selected on the lower devices.
I know I mentioned it but it really is confuzzling. Having checked again now it is a combination of needing to press Up or Left or Right to get the menu items re-selected once "drilled down".

Perhaps I can get MY head around the changes required. Will have a looksie.

Or not... I don't see a push stepk?. Let me know if you get a chance to push it.

meantime... I'll check in Ixtabs commit and see if I can figure out the [?]'s

You probably already figured it out, but anyway: just add it to the main Component, instead of root.

Hmmm... that's weird. It doesn't happen on any of my devices. Are you using a custom font or something? And how come you have a search bar while I don't? (I'm using a "Kubrick'ed" K3, so that should be FW 3.4.0). In any case, it's particularly puzzling for the back/forward buttons, because they only use "<" and ">", not any fancy Unicode character. Do you also see the problem if paint(Graphics) isn't overridden in KualButton? i.e.:
Code:
public void paint(Graphics g) {
    super.paint(g);
}

I actually tried to do something like this, but didn't succeed so far. Will keep thinking...

Search bar? The thingy at the bottom? That's stepk's newest status readout. Build linky sent your way.

Hmm custom font. I dont think so... The screenies from the k3 "above" a few posts are the same device and the < > ^ v was working then.

Perhaps something died in the pull... Far as I can tell there are only two lines in the commit that pertain to that.

Mind double checking on your 3 at some point? Will test on another 3.
Gonna test on the 4 now...

Ah... Righto then. It is a bit "non-obvious"



: ) thanks for all your help on this. Was fearing that Paint method!

I have added comments above in bold. italics

I tried hunting around for how stepk was rendering out the > < ^ v - couldn't find it...

perhaps he didn't push that yet.

Just decompile the class using jad

Code:
        nextPageButton = getUI().newButton("  \u25B6  ", this);
        prevPageButton = getUI().newButton("  \u25C0  ", this);
        prevLevelButton = getUI().newButton("\u25B2", this);
Anyway, I reproduced the Unicode problem. Amazon's implementation actually uses two different fonts for drawing the text... - just take a look at the com.amazon.ebook.util.unicode.m.drawChars() method (3.4.0 FW).

ixtab, you've figured it out already, the screenies are from KUAL 0.5 pre-release, with your 0.4.1 changed merged in manually. I haven't had time to push the code yet, I'm going to RSN.

ixtab, the new buttons look GREAT on the lower devices. No more fat bubblegums on the K3/K4/DX. I think people will appreciate that - the way it looks matters!

I just committed Unicode support for KualButton. Tested and working on K3 and K4 (K5 isn't affected anyway).

Please do push your changes to the repository... right now, we're working on two different versions, which complicates things. In particular, I can't look at the "focus middle option" if I don't have access to the Sub-menu handling code
