public class FieldSubClassDemo extends MainScreen{
 public FieldSubClassDemo(){
  //add Bitmap Field  
  BitmapField bitmapField = new BitmapField(Bitmap.getBitmapResource("img/icon.png"));
  //Create Button
  ButtonField btn = new ButtonField("Test Button");
  //Create Numeric Drop-down list
  NumericChoiceField numChoice = new NumericChoiceField("Slect Number",1,10,1);
  //Create Alphanumeric drop-down List. 
  String choiceItem[] = {"India","UK","US","Canada"};
  add(new ObjectChoiceField("Country: ", choiceItem));
  //Create Check Box
  CheckboxField checkBox=  new CheckboxField("Are you marriage?",false);
  //Create RadioButton
  RadioButtonGroup sexGroup = new RadioButtonGroup();
  RadioButtonField choMale =new RadioButtonField("Male");
  RadioButtonField choFemale =new RadioButtonField("Female"); 
  //Create Date Field
  DateField df = new DateField("Brithday: ",System.currentTimeMillis(),DateField.DATE);
  //Create RichText Field
        RichTextField rtField;
        //An array of fonts to be passed to the RichTextField.
        Font fonts[] = new Font[3];

        //A list of offsets of character positions of the string contained in the RichTextField where font appearance will change.
        int[] offset = new int[4];

        //An array of indexes that align with the offset values and indicate
        //the index of the font array of the font to use starting at an offset.
        byte[] attribute = new byte[3];

        //Get three instances of the default font.
        //On plain, one bold and one bold and italic.
        fonts[0] = Font.getDefault();
        fonts[1] = Font.getDefault().derive(Font.BOLD);
        fonts[2] = Font.getDefault().derive(Font.BOLD | Font.ITALIC);

        //The string of text we will display in the RichTextField.
        String richText = "This is how you create text with formatting!!!";

        //Offset will start a character 0 of the string.
        offset[0] = 0;
        //At character position 0 we want to use the font at
        // position 2 of the font array (bold and italic).
        attribute[0] = 2;

        //Change to the default (non-bold, non-italic) font at
        //the 4th character position.
        offset[1] = 4;
        attribute[1] = 0;

        //Change to bold font at the 33rd character position.
        offset[2] = 33;
        attribute[2] = 1;

        //Add the last character position to the offset.
        offset[3] = richText.length();

        //Instantiate rtField.
        rtField = new RichTextField
          (richText, offset, attribute, fonts,

        //Add the RichTextField to the MainScreen.
        //BasicEdit Field
        BasicEditField beField = new BasicEditField("UserName: ","");
        //Password Field
        PasswordEditField pwField = new PasswordEditField("Password: ","");
        AutoTextEditField autoTxtField = new AutoTextEditField("AutoTextField: ","");
        //create GaugeField
        GaugeField gaugeField = new GaugeField("Gauge", 0, 100, 29, GaugeField.PERCENT);
        //Create Lable Field
        LabelField lblField = new LabelField("Sample Label");
