Anyone know how we scan available access point and connect to it?
I found this API documentation
But its just list of available function. I dont know where to start it. Is there any sample to do it?

Here are some forum posts where this question has been addressed before. Hope it helps.
Hope that helps!

Thank you for the response sabdelsayed. =)
The link that you had given is not cover all what i need.
I would like my app to be able to interact with Wi-Fi on blackberry 10 devices. More specifically:
Is it possible to make that kind of app with cascades?

--> your app can scan for available WiFi connection and if found performs downloads/uploads etc.
--> Unfortunately, currently there is no way for your app to retrieve the WiFi SSID name. And hence, your app cannot connect to a specific WiFi hotspot
--> This is not possible due to security considerations

I found this API reference, it state
"The APIs support hotspot aggregator applications that can configure Wi-Fi profiles and receive aggregator specific event notifications to allow connection at Wi-Fi hotspots on the user's behalf."
Whether those API was not able to make what I want using cascades?

The newly added (10.2) wifi service library allows WiFi aggregator apps to configure/access wifi connections to allow users to connect to hotspots. Are you a hotspot aggregator developing such an application? If yes, then before you can use those functions to retrieve such Wifi connection information is to register your application as an aggregator application by calling wifi_aggregator_register(). This link has more information for you on starting such process:

Hi smiley, your question is actually related to the original post. The update that came out in 10.2 allows apps that are registered as aggregator apps to turn on/off wifi networks.

Hi smiley, your question is actually related to the original post. No, the update that came out in 10.2 only allows certain apps that are registered as aggregator apps to turn on/off wifi networks.
so how do we register our apps? is there a process like "Headless" where we need approval from BB?

From the docs, it seems to me that your app can act as an aggregator app just by calling the wifi_aggregator_register() method referenced in my earlier post.
P.S. I haven't tried using this library myself yet, but it seems that it's now possible for apps to register and retrieve network information that were previously not available. Please try using the library and let us know if you encounter any problem.
