Re: Get BB10 Phone Number

I've never done this but I would start by looking at the phone API - https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/device_and_communication_phone.html

Re: Get BB10 Phone Number

dmalik, I think you are correct in how to read the phone number. 


I am running into a problem, however, trying to compile the native library for an ANE that uses the phone API, which is written in Qt. All of the examples of ANEs I see do not use Qt.



I have modified the HelloAir ANE example built by the QNX Momentics IDE, but I run into 275 errors involving code I have not written (Qt) when compiling. 


Has anyone successfully built an ANE that uses Qt libraries? Or is there a way to read the phone number without using Qt?
