BlackBerry Map with customized menu



Thru my application, I can invoke BB Map with no problem, and pass the variable from my app for it to display the exact location with more details and such.


Now, I want to add 'Get location here' on top of current BB Map default menu, so when user choose the selection, it will pass back the longitude and latitude of current center screen from BB Map back to my application.


How should I accomplish this? I know how to use MapField, but it doesnt have the leisure of searching and such.

Re: BlackBerry Map with customized menu

You need to add an ApplicationMenuItem to the Maps app.
