Browserfield Example not launching

Greetings All,

 

I'm attempting to run a very simple Blackberry/Java application which implements the BrowserField class. When I launch it in the simulator it just hangs. When I launch it on my device nothing happens.

JRE: 7.0
Simulator: 4.0.0.141

 

 

package mypackage;

import net.rim.device.api.browser.field2.BrowserField;
import net.rim.device.api.browser.field2.BrowserFieldConfig;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.UiApplication;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.container.MainScreen;

public class BrowserJazz extends UiApplication
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
BrowserJazz app = new BrowserJazz();
app.enterEventDispatcher();
}

public void BrowserJazz()
{
pushScreen(new BrowserFieldDemoScreen());
}
}

class BrowserFieldDemoScreen extends MainScreen
{
public BrowserFieldDemoScreen()
{
BrowserFieldConfig myBrowserFieldConfig = new BrowserFieldConfig();

 


myBrowserFieldConfig.setProperty(BrowserFieldConfig.NAVIGATION_MODE,
BrowserFieldConfig.NAVIGATION_MODE_POINTER);

BrowserField browserField = new BrowserField(myBrowserFieldConfig);

/*BrowserFieldListener listener = new BrowserFieldListener() {
public void documentLoaded(BrowserField browserField) throws Exception
{
// the document has loaded, do something ...
Dialog.inform("PAGE LOADED!");
}
};*/

add(browserField);
//browserField.addListener( listener );

browserField.requestContent("http://www.google.com");
//browserField.addListener( listener );

}
}

 

Any ideas?

Re: Browserfield Example not launching

Try this in your screen:

 

public final class TestScreen extends MainScreen
{

     BrowserField browserField;
     

    public TestScreen()

    {
        BrowserFieldConfig myBrowserFieldConfig = new BrowserFieldConfig();

        myBrowserFieldConfig.setProperty(BrowserFieldConfig.NAVIGATION_MODE,
        BrowserFieldConfig.NAVIGATION_MODE_POINTER);
        browserField = new BrowserField(myBrowserFieldConfig);
        add(browserField);

        addMenuItem(goMenu);
    }

 

    private MenuItem goMenu = new MenuItem("Go", 0x240000, 0){
         public void run(){
               browserField.requestContent("http://www.google.com");
         }
    };
}

 

Push this screen then select Go form the menu. I found that setting the content of the brower field in the construction will cause issues, I suspect because the field may not be fully instantiated when you are attempting to populate it.
