Issue in Message Service class in Blackberry Native Cascades

Hi All,


I want to send message to a contact using its PIN number.


I am ausing blackberry native cascades for development but i cant find any method to send message to contact .


I am attaching the code which i have written.


#include <bb/cascades/AbstractPane>
#include <bb/cascades/Application>
#include <bb/cascades/QmlDocument>

#include <bb/platform/bbm/MessageService>

using namespace bb::cascades;

SendMessage::SendMessage(bb::platform::bbm::Context &context, QObject *parent)
    : QObject(parent)
    , m_messageService(0)
    , m_context(&context)

void SendMessage::sendInvite()
    if (!m_messageService) {
        // Instantiate the MessageService.
   m_messageService = new bb::platform::bbm::MessageService(m_context, this);
    // Trigger the invite to download process.


After i create object by name m_messageService i cannot get the method to send message to a particular contact.


Please help in using this API correctly and sending the message to a particular contact.


Thanks & Regards,

Re: Issue in Message Service class in Blackberry Native Cascades



PIN messaging is not part of the bbm packages - look at the classes in and related to AccountService



When i run this code (and have permissions set )


AccountService * as = new AccountService();
QList<Account> accounts(as->accounts(Service::Messages));
for (int i=0; i<accounts.size(); ++i) {
  qDebug() << "Account: " << i << accounts[i].displayName() << accounts[i].id() << accounts[i].provider().name();

 i see:


Account:  0 "" 199 "Pin to Pin" 
Account:  1 "" 23 "sms-mms"
