Delete Contacts based Upon a Category

Our app assigns a category to contacts that are persisted.  If our app is deleted  we would like to do is retrieve all contacts based upon this category, and remove each  of these contacts. Lastly we would like to remove the category. Via the PIM APIs, there does not appear to be a clear cut way of retrieving users based upon a category. It appears that you can retrieve groups.  

 

Is the solution to retrieve the groups via one of the items(searchType) method in BlackBerryContactList, then get your group from the enumeration? 

 

Has anyone attempted this or is there a more efficient method?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Re: Delete Contacts based Upon a Category

you could try
http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/7.1.0api/javax/microedition/pim/PIMList.html#deleteCategor...
with deleteUnassignedItems set to true.
i never used it, but according to the API description it should do what you want.

Re: Delete Contacts based Upon a Category

Thanks Simon!

 

I should have been more diligent in in walking the Class hiearchy, as I did perform a google search and did not get any programmatic hits.

 

I'll test an post the results!

 

Thanks Again,

Mark
