first I have to tell you that I am a newbie in programming blackberry apps - so please excuse my beginner questions.
I would like to create an app which hooks into the context menu of the phone application. The idea is to have a context menu item (named "backwards search") on every phone number of the history list. Selecting this item the app should open the default browser session with an URL like http://domain/script?<number>
<number> stands for the selected phonenumber in the history list.
Could someone of you give me a hint how to start with these two parts of my app (maybe with some code snippets)?
1. Creating a context menu in the phone app and linking it to a function with the phone number as variable
2. Opening the default browser with a custom URL (passing the variable from 1.)
Thanks a lot
