Register application for specific files

Hello everyone.

I have a small question for you.

Is there any way i can register an application to open a specific file ?


An example: i have an email with a csv file inside. Normally Blackberry cannot open it. So i have my application that can open that file but i want to open when i open the attachement.

So blackberry will forward the request to open the file to my application.


Can this be done ?

Thank you.

Re: Register application for specific files

There are AttachmentHandler and AttachmentHandlerManager classes in API.

 Also you can take a look on the ContentHandler class.
