Re: Maps with clickable pins

I've got the same problem.

MapField on SDK 6.0.0 doesn't have the method convertWorldToField.


I don't know how to customize my pins and listen which one is clicked.

Is there a solution or not ?

Re: Maps with clickable pins

A valid and probably simpler option would be to use this open source library by Monits https://github.com/Monits/blackberry-commons

It contains several common functionality found in BB applications and is compatible for BB 4.6.1+

Among other things, it provides a map field with the ability to add and display markers on top of it, with and without focus, and optionally "open" them.

The documentation is pretty good, and the wiki even has a tutorial on how to achieve it https://github.com/Monits/blackberry-commons/wiki/CustomMap

Re: Maps with clickable pins
