Background start page

[ Edited ]

Hello, Can someone EXPLAIN what is meant by the Background start page? as specified by the config.xml file?  The documenation is a bit vague on this subject...

 

What does it do? What role does it play in the application start-up? Is it necessary?  What is gained by creating a background start page for your application?

Please use plain text.

Re: Background start page

The reference is here: http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/20770/RIM_background_element_1265316_11.jsp

notice the example there:

<content src="index.html" >
   <rim:background src="listener.html" runOnStartup="true" />
</content>

 its means that the listener.html will be execute first when the device starts and / or when the application is installed ,

but,

the page of listener.html will not be appeared, it will work just on background.

Please use plain text.

Re: Background start page

\Well what does that mean? can I pass stuff between the listener.html and the index.html? can it be used to loadstuff and switch between index.html and some other page? is it that variables set in listener.html are global and can therefore be used in index.html or some other page?
