Add Alarm Event to Calendar

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

   I'm new to BB development and would like to know how to add an Alarm Event to Calendar (in the same way you do it via Calendar Menu -> New Alarm). I've been searching across the forum with no luck and also playing around with the Event and BlackBerryEvent classes and all I can do is create a "normal" Event.

 

   I also tried to get all the events from the calendar and I can't get the Alarms, only the Appointments, as if the Alarms were not calendar events, using this code:

 

 

try {

  EventList eventList = (EventList)PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(PIM.EVENT_LIST, PIM.READ_ONLY);

  Enumeration events = eventList.items();

  while (events.hasMoreElements()) {

    Event event = (Event)events.nextElement();

    Dialog.alert(event.toString());
  }

} catch (PIMException e) {

  Dialog.alert(e.getMessage());
}

   Is there any way to add a Alarm entries to the calendar?

 

Thank you in advanced,

Jairsinho.

Hi,

 

I've been searching about this, and since haven't found even a clue, I think it's seems to be some kind of exclusive feature of the OS that is not included in the API. Can someone confirm this?

 

Thank you,

So i think the Alarm is an app generated by rim, but there should be an interface from caledar and this app...

Any hint?
