show the dialpad with a given number in Blackberry 10 Cascades Beta 4 SDK

[ Edited ]

I  am trying to figure out to show the dialpad with a given number in Blackberry 10 Cascades Beta 4 SDK.

 

Right now, I have this code:

 

bb::system:: phone:: Phone phone;
phone.requestDialpad(number, bb::system:: phone:: LineType:: Cellular);

 

which causes this error:

 

Cannot open phone pps object
 
Cannot open phone pps object
 
Cannot open phone pps object

 

So, I looked up about a pps object, and found this page:

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__ppsobject.html,

 

Is that what I need to use?, if so how do I use it?  Or do I use something else, and how to I use that?

 

(I did by the way add "LIBS += -lbb" to my .pro file to be able to use a pps object, but that change alone did not fix it).

I do not believe that phone capabilities are yet enabled... This may be why the dialpad is not working.

What about in the Blackberry 10 Cascades Gold SDK?
