Is there a PDF file (or other format) which documents the BPS (Blackberry platform support) functions?
At present I go to a URL like
for example, in this case to get info about functions available for BPS dialogs.
Navigating those screens is tedious. Also it is not efficient to print the screens because of anciliary information.
What I would really like is to be able to see all those function descriptions as a document, read the document, then go back to particular items on an as-needed basis.
Most likely this is already available. I just haven't found it yet. Any pointers?

To answer my question of yesterday, here is the method I've arrived at for getting BPS documentation as a pdf file:
Go into QNX Momentics IDE. Choose Help -- Help Contents Pick a topic from left hand menu, for instance
Native SDK Core Native -- Blackberry Platform Services Library -- Dialog Windows. Highlight it.
From menu along top of screen, choose down-arrow of Print icon, and select "Print selected topic and all subtopics".
Choose printer. If some direct-to-pdf software is available (I use PDF995), just print to that file. Otherwise, select "Print to Go", and send the file to your BB10 (it will arrive as a pdf file). Then share that pdf via email to the computer where you want to use the file.
All considered, very nice documentation, now that I can read it at page-turning speed. Thanks to many writers!
