bb.action.DIAL invocation target

Hello!

 

Can I register a bb.action.DIAL invocation handler in my application? Will it interfere with a native dialer when it's available? How will the OS choose which application (mine or the native dialer) to use to dial numbers?

 

Currently I have two test applications which have handlers for bb.action.DIAL. When I tap on a phone number in the Contacts application OS invokes the one which was installed first. Is there any way to alter this behaviour?

 

Can an application deny an invocation request or pass it to the next handler (by reemiting an invocation request maybe)?

BlackBerryDev did just offer clarifications on Twitter:

You cant. Contacts app will invoke the default handler for bb.action.DIAL - the phone app. Gr8 usecase and I will follow up. ^SH
