Automatically launch the browser in a BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator

by BlackBerry Development Advisor on ‎02-17-2010 01:23 PM (1,634 Views)


This article applies to the following:

  • BlackBerry® Smartphone Simulators
  • BlackBerry smartphones based on Java® technology


It is possible to have a BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator automatically launch the browser to a predetermined web page when it starts.

This can be done by adding the following parameter to a specific BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator’s startup batch file:

/app-param=url=<predetermined url>

for example, /app-param=url=http://www.google.ca

You can find BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator batch files in the simulator subdirectory of the BlackBerry® Java® Development (BlackBerry JDE) or in the directory where you installed any standalone BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators.
