Beta 3: Displaying Information in Thumbnail

Are there any examples on setting information in the thumbnail like is done with the Calendar app?

Look for the information about Active Frames:

 

"""Active Frames - You can now specify a cover image for your app. A cover appears when your app is reduced to a thumbnail (for example, when users swipe up from the bottom of the screen to switch between running apps). Previously, a scaled-down version of your app's UI was used as the cover image, but now you can create your own custom cover images and use them instead. You can even use a completely dedicated UI tree as the cover image."""

 

That leads to stuff like this: https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__cascades__applicationviewcover.html

 

I don't know of an example just yet, nor do I have any code snippet of my own.
