I'm working with java me, I built an app using forms displayables. I'm trying 
to switch to other forms, based on the user's input in a textfield item. For 
example, I want the user to be able to type in the number "1" in the 
textfield and then be taken to form1 or type in "2" and be taken to form2 etc.

Here's what I did.

I added a command to the textfield item and listen on it to read textfield 
contents and then compare the contents as a string, to switch forms. I don't 
know why my code isn't working. I think maybe there's something I'm missing 
or my logic is not right. I'd really appreciate any help on this please.

            form.setCommandListener(new CommandListener() {
                public void commandAction(Command command, Displayable 
displayable) {
                    if (command == getTextFieldItemCommand()) {
                        if ("1".equals(TextField.getString())) {
                            switchDisplayable(null, form1);
                        } else if ("2".equals(TextField.getString())){
                            switchDisplayable(null, form2);
