Can we add BB map to our application as a field on OS 4.2?

I know mapfield is available from 4.5, what about 4.2 and 4.3?

Is there any workaround to add it to screen a field as well?

Thanks.

No, but you can use Invoke to start the map applicaiton with your specific point(s) of interest.

 

See MapsArguments and Invoke in the API docs.

So in general,

1. we can only add static google or blackberry map bitmap as bitmapfield to a screen before 4.5.

 

2. We can add  blackberry dynamic map as mapfield to a screen since 4.5

 

Correct?

 

question:

Can we add google dynamic map as a mapfield  to a screen since 4.5?

 

Thanks RexDoug

No dynamic google maps as a field.  

 

You can actually install Google Maps and pass KML parameters to do your magic.
