NotificationManager BB10

Hi! My App uses AlarmManager along with NotificationManager to post Notifications when the app is in the background or closed. In PlayBook simulator it pops up a message containing the custom icon and message configured in the Notification object. When I open the app by clicking on the notification I receive an Intent with information I can use to perform an action. However on BlackBerry 10 simulator all that happens is the App's icon get a little badge, without any information, and nothing is passed along to the app when opened. Is this the intended behavior? The user is left wondering what triggered the notification.

Re: NotificationManager BB10



For BlackBerry 10 the user would see their notifications in the BlackBerry Hub area. So they would be able to take action on the notification or delete it etc. Unfortunately you won't be able to see that just yet within the simulator. But if you are seeing the notification splat on the app icon, the notification would show in the BlackBerry Hub correctly.
