Question about WiFi and Radio API's for native SDK

Hi

 

I can't find the corresponding API's for WLANInfo and Hot:

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/6.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/system/WLANInfo.WLANAPInfo.htm...

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/wlan/hotspot/package-summary.h...

 

Also I would like to find the corresponding API's for RadioInfo

http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/6.0.0api/net/rim/device/api/system/RadioInfo.html

 

Could anyone tell me if these kind of API's will be available in BB10 and if so where they are located?

 

Thanks,

Martin

Re: Question about WiFi and Radio API's for native SDK

The only API i know is the netstatus API. But i don't think it meets your requirements.

hopefully some kind of advanced netstatus/network api is comming

[ Edited ]

Yes, I would need to find the post but I believe one of the RIM folks said that they brought over nearly all the functionality from BBOS into BB10, but as C libraries. But we run PlayBook OS right now (a subset of BB10). So it's a question of when.

Re: Question about WiFi and Radio API's for native SDK

Maybe I read it wrong but the feature move in your post seems to apply to Qt.

 

Could anyone from RIM comment on whether the approach to move all functionality from older OS to OS 10 native SDK?

 

Espacially WiFi and Radio scanning functionality as listed in my first post.

It's possible.

Re: Question about WiFi and Radio API's for native SDK

That's excellent.

 

Would you be so kind as to point me in the direction of what API's to use to achieve this?

What? I meant "It's possible" that the post only applied to Qt.

Re: Question about WiFi and Radio API's for native SDK

I am very curious if there has been any developments regarding this functionality.

 

I posted about this a month or two ago and the response from BB seemed to be that there was no BB10 equivalent to the api you listed, and the only things which would cover this area (a couple of QNX Neutrino utilities classes) were actually not going to be available for BB10 development.

 

Anyone who knows anyting about this want to chime in?  It seems crazy that there would simply be no support for hotspots or any kind of wifi functionality...
