Enabling Scoll via hard buttons

Is it possible to scroll a through a field using the hard buttons (up/down)? I'm finding it difficult to use the scroll bars on the Palm Zire 31 model which seems to have lower resolution than my T2.

You need to create an onhkey handler. In that handler, look for the "evUp" and "evDown" keys. Call UIField.scroll to scroll the field bby the number of lines desired. Then call UIScroll.update(field) to update the scrollbar. Take a look at the UISample sample, and add the following handler to memoForm.oc. -3 and 3 are used because the field is 3 lines tall.

Code: Select all
handler memoForm.onhkey() {
  if (event.key == evUp) {
  } else if (event.key == evDown) {
