OTA install prompt instead of user Options->Advanced Options->App....

[ Edited ]



We've developed a helper application for in-house use that leverages EventInjector to simulate key presses. Our users aren't very technical, so we'd like to get away from the users having to go into Options->Advanced Options->Applications... and allow Keystroke Injection. We are not on a BES and we OTA the application to 8800s v


Is there a way to manipulate the jad, maybe RIM-COD-Module-Dependencies field, or something else that would prompt the users on install about allowing Keystroke Injections? Or maybe a way programatically to change this setting?


Thanks for your time.

Re: OTA install prompt instead of user Options->Advanced Options->App....

Here's how I do it to request screen capture permissions from the user, you could easily change this to work for event injection instead (only on 4.2.0+).


ApplicationPermissions ap = ApplicationPermissionsManager.getInstance().getApplicationPermissions(); if (ap.getPermission(ApplicationPermissions.PERMISSION_SCREEN_CAPTURE) != ApplicationPermissions.VALUE_ALLOW) { ap.addPermission(ApplicationPermissions.PERMISSION_SCREEN_CAPTURE); ApplicationPermissionsManager.getInstance().invokePermissionsRequest(ap); }


  I still don't like that end-users have to deal with a confusing permissions UI but that's life right now.
