James Tan

Information for invoking BBM can be found on the BBM page of Invoking Core Applications.

 

Note that the multi person chat feature is new in 10.1 and is not currently supported as a QML InvokeActionItem.  You need to use that one from C/C++.

So as long as I use C++ it will work on 10.0.9 and 10.0.10?

Re: InvokeRequest bbm id of contact

Multi person chat requires BlackBerry 10.1.  The other invocation types for BBM are supported in 10.0.9 (and higher).
