Please, feel free to open weather.res file in your Resource Editor and play with different combinations of colors, fonts, and images. Maybe some of you wonder why I have included all the images inside the resource file instead of downloading them (the RSS feed has some image URLs).

Conclusion

You have learned the basics of LWUIT: using containers and forms and placing components on them following a layout. You also started to empower your application with themes, fonts, and images. In the next article, I will show you some advanced concepts, such as Lists, dialogs, tabs, and animations.
