J2ME Table component with focus and scroll

Sometimes it happens that you must draw a table within a J2ME application. Even if there are some nice UI frameworks out there, they’re simply oversized if you need only a simple, plain, scrollable table.

This is the reason why I’ve decided to write a custom component that you can use to draw tables, with the following features:

  • Focusable cells
  • Vertical scrolling
  • Auto-sizing columns

Some nice features to be added in a future version could be, for example:

  • Cell wrap when moving from a cell to another
  • Horizontal scrolling, to support tables with a lot of columns
  • Support for headers

You can see a live version on the emulator page. Full midlet source code is available here.
