Not all classes from qnx.pps package are documented

Hello,

 

Looks like package qnx.pps is not fully documented here:

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/airapi/1.0.0/qnx/pps/package-detail.html

 

Only PPSAccess class is mentioned.

 

What about other classes from this package:

qnx.pps.Message;

qnx.pps.PPS;

qnx.pps.PPSChannel;

 

Does anyone have any information about these classes or may be usage examples?

 

Thank you.

According to the release notes, this is not listed as being new.  Probably still have to wait for official notification and documentation (and examples).

@jtegen's correct.   The sole documented class was there in the last release, maybe earlier.

 

For now, all PPS stuff should be considered internal-use only, and has no use in our code.

 

Note that "backdoor" approaches which may have worked before, such as using /pps/system/keyboard/status to detect whether the keyboard is showing or not, no longer work in 1.0 as they've changed the permission bits on that object.  (If you used that and are upset by its removal, please review the caveats I included in that post. :smileyhappy: )
