blackberry 10 invoke maps and uri

Dear all,

 

I am trying to develop an application for blackberry 10 using webworks.

In BlackBerry 7 or earlier, we can use blackberry.invoke.MapsArgument to show BlackBerry Maps.

In BlackBerry 10 WebWorks documentation,

it said that we must to call blackberry.invoke.invoke method to show maps.

Could you tell me what is the action/target to invoke maps?

 

And is there any way to test <a href='mailto:...'> and <a href='tel:999999'> on blackberry 10 simulator? 

I can't get mailto and tel uri working on blackberry 10 simulator but it worked on blackberry 7 or earlier simulator.

Is there any documentation that covers the supported URI (like mailto, tel, geo, etc) in blackberry 10? 

 

Thanks.

Re: blackberry 10 invoke maps and uri

MapsArguments have been removed and only supported on Playbook.

For BB10

invoke works completely differently

 

Please click on the BB10 link on left side and then go to Invoke

Then only the BB10 ones will show up.

 

Having said that here is direct link for it

For understanding the invocation framework look at-

Perhaps my presentation from BBJam is a good place to start-

If I understand the roadmap correctly, this will work with the W6 update of the SDK coming in November.

STRING PATTERN

Enable or disable string pattern matching within your HTML content. When enabled phone numbers, emails, and URLs found in your application content will be active and invoke relevant platform actions.
