Hi guys, I'm trying to make an app where you can select any bbm contact and send them a message from the app. I've set up the BBM SDK but the documentation is very confusing to me. All I want to do is to make a button which you click to select a contact, which pops up a window which shows all BBM contacts on the device, the user then selects a single contact and this contact is returned. How would I go about doing this?

If you access the UIService within the SDK, you can do exactly this by using the method startBBMChat(String).
I'd recommend just using the Alternative Demo sample app given within the ZIP and then you can use the clean code provided in the sample to implement this method.

You cannot force BBM to send the message. You can pre-populate the message field for the user, but they have to click send. You can pre-poulate the message with the String argument.

You can send a message and images by using the sample code provided with the BBM SDK Alternative Dependency Checker sample.

Where is this Alternative Dependency sample ? I have version 1.1 of the SDK and the only samples I have are BBMSDKDEMO, BBMSDKDemoProxy and tictactoe.
Nvm, just found it.

If you use the chatWithOthers method within the BBMBridgeImpl class, you do not need to have a channel open. However, it is impossible to send a message for a user.
