Soft key labels - Expense Report (5)

As a small change in Expense Report version 0.5.1, I have revised soft key labels so that even small screen handsets can display them without truncation.

In the market, there are still many mobile phones with small screens like 220x176 pixels, 2 inches diagonal. Six Latin letters or two Far-Eastern letters are typically suitable for soft key labels so that such small screen can properly display them. Again, this is just a typical case because Latin letters are usually shown with proportional fonts, which means that the width of letters differ from one to another.


In MIDP-2.x, command labels can have two forms: one is short form for soft key labels on the bottom of the screen, the other is long form for command menu screen. I also have added long labels so that MIDP-2.x devices can display more self-contained labels.
