I am new to BlackBerry Development, and have started off using the SketchPad demo to work using webworks and packaging this up as a .bar file and running this on the PlayBook Simulator.
This has worked well and now I am having a look at the EClipse IDE with the BlackBerry Plug In. There is a SketchPad_Eclipse version on the BlackBerry website, and so far I have not been able to get this to work.
In Eclipse, if I click on the BlackBerry menuitem, import black berry samples
Then I get SketchPadEclipse in my Package Explorer. The trouble from here is I don't know how to run this in the simulator. In fact when I double click on the touch.js, it says there is a syntax error on line 12.
Any help around this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for including a screenshot. I can see that you have the BlackBerry Java Plugin for Eclipse, which is intended for building standalone Java applications and is separate from WebWorks development.
For that you need to use the BlackBerry WebWorks Plug-in for Eclipse.

Thanks very much for your very quick reply, and you were right on the money, I hadn't installed the correct item, which is BlackBerry_Web_Tools_188.8.131.52010291444-2.exe
So I have installed this and imported SketchPad fine into this environment.. The only part that is still a little confusing is that some examples talk about creating projects using BlackBerry Widgets and has a menuitem for this. However I cannot find this in the Eclipse wizard. Do I need to install anything else ?
Here is a screen shot where it should be listed.
And lastly, I am looking for sample code that allows me to play video and audio on one of these devices. Do you know of any sample code to do this in the WebWorks environment.
Once again thanks for your help
