Is this even possible?

Good morning,

 

Would someone be able to answer a few questions for me? I'm into day 2 working with BlackBerry and day 0 working with java so I have a bit of a learning curve ahead of me...

 

Here's what I need to do:

 

I have an ASP.Net web page written in C# that is to be accessed by a BlackBerry. From the page, I want to be able to add calendar events and contact info to the user's BlackBerry and invoke mapping. i.e. The user clicks on a button on the web page to add a meeting to their local BlackBerry calendar complete with address info. Click on another button to create a new contact in their BlackBerry contact list.

 

Is this possible? If it is, could you point me in the general direction? I'm assuming I'll have to add some inline javascript code to the ASP.Net page...

 

 

Thank you very much,

 

Carlo.

According to the documentation below

 

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/18446/blackberry_launch_971534_11.jsp

 

You can do this if the device is OS 5.0 or higher.

So then, as long as I import the required classes and interfaces on the page with inline javascript, it sounds like I should be able to do this?

 

Thanks,

 

Carlo.

I have never tried it but it sounds like it should work.

Re: Is this even possible?

The documentation at @araskin's link works like a charm for me.

I'm working on a Mac and using VMWare Fusion to run the BB simulator on Windows 7. The BB emulator I'm using to test this is the Verizon 9550.
