A Text object is a mutable text container with the ability to layout it’s contents.

In addition to the text it contains, it has the following attributes, all of which can be set by a MIDlet as required.

  • the width and height of the rectangle within which to layout it’s contents

  • the initial text layout direction

  • the text alignment

  • the paragraph start indentation level

  • the space in pixels above each line of text

  • the space in pixels below each line of text

  • the background colour

  • the default foreground colour

  • the default Font

  • the position and length of the currently highlighted text, if any

  • the current position, if any, of the caret</p

The colour and Font used to render text can also be set on a section by section basis if required.

The contents of a Text object can be rendered to a Graphics object which means that it can be used in conjunction with a Canvas, CustomItem, IdleItem or mutable Image.
