Connecting to BBM Channel

Is there a way to connect directly to/open a BBM Channel?

 

I don't want the app to subscribe to the channel, but just open BBM up at the Channel so that the user can see the channel and decide for themselves.

 

I know I can open the PIN url, but that was through the web browser using c++ code for opening a URL.

Okay, I guess it does exist.

Re: Connecting to BBM Channel

I couldn't add it to the MenuDefinition, so I added it to the Actions

 

InvokeActionItem {
          ActionBar.placement: ActionBarPlacement.OnBar
          query {
                   invokeTargetId: "sys.bbm.channels.card.previewer"
                   invokeActionId: "bb.action.OPENBBMCHANNEL"
                   uri: "bbmc:C004DD717"
            }
}

 The only issue with this, is that it opens up the BBM Channel on top of the application.
