    I'm creating simple buttons on the 7926 as follows:
     
    StringItem button= new StringItem( null, "Button", StringItem.BUTTON );
     
    The text is centered horizontally, but not vertically.  Instead, it is vertically aligned to the bottom of the button.  I've tried the following, all to no avail:
     
    button.setLayout( StringItem.LAYOUT_CENTER );
    button.setLayout( StringItem.LAYOUT_VCENTER );
    button.setLayout( StringItem.LAYOUT_CENTER | StringItem.LAYOUT_VCENTER );
     
    The text is centered properly, by default, in the 7926 simulator.
     
    Suggestions?
