Custom Item in J2ME

     

In J2ME applications, Custom Items can be created by programmers and they can also set their look and feel as these custom item have their own method called paint(). Also CustomItem is a extendable class, and extends the Item class itself. Using custom items you can create and add as many items as you want in your J2ME applications. In this Midlet, we have tried to do the same thing. 

Please don't forget to include javax.microedition.lcdui package into you application.
