Raising Default Profile Alerts

Is it possible to raise the default alert for a given profile? I've looked through the notifcation APIs, but I am still a bit unclear. For example, if I wanted to raise whatever the user has set to happen when a new SMS message arrives in the current profile, can I raise this in my application? I'm thinking this is possible, since JiveTalk has an option to use the "Profile Default" LED color when a new message arrives, but I can't determine exactly where to get started. Thanks.

Re: Raising Default Profile Alerts

You can't use the same notification setting for an entry that already exists (i.e. phone, SMS, email), but you can integration your own application so that it has its own entry in the profiles.  Your application can then trigger this alert, which fires whatever notification the user has configured in their profile.


Have a look at the notificationsdemo included with the BlackBerry JDE for an example.
