Re: Invoke addcontact from qml

I am also having trouble with bb.action.ADDTOCONTACT 


Trying to use it in C++


InvokeRequest cardRequest;
QVariantMap data = QVariantMap();


data["phone"] = m_formattedNumber;
QByteArray encData = PpsObject::encode(data);
InvokeTargetReply* reply = m_invokeManager-> invoke(cardRequest);


Also tried the phone number not encoded:




In either case I just get the card flashed on the screen then disappears with no error reported.  Can't find any examples or documentation except the one page that lists the invocation parameters (https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/documentation/device_platform/invocation/contacts.html)

Re: Invoke addcontact from qml

Invoking the full contacts app to add a phone number, like you showed, is supposed to work.  However, when I've tried it, the contacts app actually crashes.  There is a bug written about this:



However, you can invoke the contacts card, with similar parameters, and it does work:


    bb::system::InvokeManager invokeManager;
    bb::system::InvokeRequest request;
