How to do not show the delete item when an application icon is selected

The menu items should be shown when an application icon is selected and the menu key is clicked. The delete item will be shown for some application and application will be deleted after the deleted item is selected. But for some application, the delete item is not shown when the application icon is selected and the menu key is clicked. We want to protect our application that can not be deleted when our application icon is selected and the menu key is clicked.

Who know how to do not show the delete item when an application icon is selected?

Re: How to do not show the delete item when an application icon is selected

Your BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator can configure applications to be required.  This means the user cannot delete the application from their BlackBerry Smartphone.

 

To do so, have your admin create a Software Configuration Policy on your BES that marks the application as required.  The application will then be pushed from the BES and installed on your users BlackBerry Smartphones.

Re: How to do not show the delete item when an application icon is selected

Thank you for your answer.

 

Some applications, for example Blackberry HELP! and Facebook, the delete item is not shown when the application icon is selected and the menu key is clicked. Do you think they should be installed with the BES or not?

 

Can we do some setting in the jad file to set this function for the application?

Re: How to do not show the delete item when an application icon is selected

Some applications that are part of the core OS can not be removed in this way (such as Help).  This doesn't apply to Facebook though.  It could have been pushed out from your BES.

 

There is no way to remove the delete option for a third party application other than marking it as required and pushing it out from the BES.
