how to retrieve the user-selected date of the calendar?

[ Edited ]

Hi All,


I have a question that is very important for the success of my project.


I have added an ApplicationMenuItem to the blackberry calendar menu. The run() method of my "ApplicationMenuItem-derived" class needs to retrieve the user-selected dates in the calendar.


"user selected dates in the calendar" means the calendar date rank (start date and end date) selected by the user in the blackberry calendar (cf image below).






Thanks in advance,

An ApplicationMenuItem added to the calendar can pass in the event the user has currently selected, but it does not pass in a date range they have selected.
