The BETA of the BBM WebWorks APIs will be available VERY soon. We are working on getting everything lined up to get out there.

Re: BBM integration into Webwork apps

window.open will not work to create a new window on the BlackBerry. Even in the browser, this will open a new tab and not a dialog.

 

In a WebWorks application there isn't the concept of tabs.  Is there a specific API you are using that requires popup windows?

Re: BBM integration into Webwork apps

I have not used FB share or Twitter buttons before... I'm not sure how they work (i.e. ajax, open new tab, other) so I can't tell you if they work or not.

 

Have you tried them and found problems with them?  Have you diagnosed what the problem is?  If they require a popup window through window.open which would open up a new tab on a regular browser, then they will not work in WebWorks.  

 

If you look into the source on how the buttons work, they will likely be using standard web technology that you could incorporate in your app to accomplish the same goal.
