Invoking AddressBook



I would like to invoke an address book application for a given contact in 'view' mode, much like a view mode (net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.CalendarArguments.ARG_VIEW) that is available for invoking a calendar application. The only two modes available to invoke an address book application are ARG_COMPOSE and ARG_NEW (from net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.AddressBookArguments)


I also looked at the 'choose' methods in net.rim.blackberry.api.pdap.BlackBerryContactList, but these are for making the user choose a contact or PIMItem as the name suggests, but not to display the address book with the contact in hand. Just so you know, I am using the following code to invoke the address book application.



net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.Invoke.invokeApplication(net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.Invoke.APP_TYPE_ADDRESSBOOK, newnet.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.AddressBookArguments(net.rim.blackberry.api.invoke.AddressBookArguments.ARG_COMPOSE, contact));


Any help/suggestions would be appreciated a lot.
