Pretty Forms?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add some menus to my game, including config menus and the obligatory "Are you sure?" menu for various events. I know how to make forms, but only simple ones. What I need now are forms with nice border patterns, and maybe images and even a fancy (new?) font. Is there a way to get these features through the basic forms, or must I make everything from scratch? Any tutorials that cover this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You pretty much have to make everything from scratch. The standard non-Canvas graphics elements, IMHO, are not suitable for use in games due to their lack of customizable graphics.

Note that general-purpose UI libraries such as Synclast and J2ME Polish tend to use up 10-20K of memory. On certain phones, that's a big bite out of the maximum JAR size. Rolling your own solution will take up much less space.
