Capturing javascript confirm inside BB App

Within an Android webview, one can capture the javascript confirm function so the dialog displays natively, and then it returns the result to the html page.


Is this possible in the BrowserField?

Re: Capturing javascript confirm inside BB App

Are you creating a WebWorks app, or a Java App with a Browserfield?


In either case you should be able to override confirm() to call a different method of your choosing rather than the default. Your own method can use a WebWorks Extension or a similar extension to the Browserfield to call a native dialog instead of the Browser one.


Browserfield is extended through the Browserfield.extendScriptEngine() method.
