Amazon application, using Browser Field?



I'm new in BB development. I have try the Amazon BB app, and think it's very cool. Do you think it is build using browser field? I have been doing some experiment using browser field, including the one in JDE demo. I found the browser field rendering is not as good as the standard BB browser. 

Btw, where can I found the detail information/specification about browser field (supported standard, css, javascript, image, etc)?


Best regards.

set your user agent. it has an effect on how it displays the page. and for the css support etc. use the RenderingOptions class. you can set almost everything just like the BlackBerry browser from css, font size and javascript support. though i haven't seen the Amazon BB app Smiley Happy

I too really like the Amazon BB app.


I think they developed it by extending the ListField class.


Do a search on how to work the ListField and ListFieldCallback classes.


Best of luck!
