that would have been a good addition to the API. not sure why no one think of it. any votes to add this feature in future ?

If an acknowledgement is needed by your application, then can't your application, on receiving the content, acknowledge it?

true but to know if I want to show, how many of the shares were acknowledged ? I may not be able to compare how many of them were shared in first place.

Re: BBM SDK - ShareContent API

instead of void for the methods shareContent(), should return something like the BBMPlatformContactList like uiService.showContactPicker(). or should there be a method to suppress the contact picker for shareContent API.

 

not to rant, but i always hit some road block with RIM API and lot of limitations, I would say the API is not well thought out.

Re: BBM SDK - ShareContent API

the problem with the acknwoledgement is that I end up opening up contact picker to send/share content again. or is there any alternative way ?

Re: BBM SDK - ShareContent API

No, I think you are right. 

 

Apologies, I was confused, I thought you were sharing data on a Session.  the points you have made are all valid.
