Can i call a function of another application.

Hi,

 

Is it possible to call a function of another application. If so, if that function returns a value can i use that in the current running application.

No -- your app has a very limited view outside of its sandbox. You either need to include a loadable library in your .bar, or invoke the other application.

Re: Can i call a function of another application.

many applications pose as invoke targets or offer card integration.
BlackBerry is creating a site for their own apps as an overview, and they have plans to extend this for 3rd party devs.

Centralized invocation forum and website has been "planned" for almost 9 months. There is not a current place for developers to collaborate on this.

I guess invocation questions could be posted to Testing and Deployment

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Testing-and-Deployment/bd-p/Testing_and_Deployment_of_Applica...

But we would have to get community consensus to do that.
