Re: Background start page

For those who don't know the config.xml has some option called background start page... but the documentation on this is not clear at all. Can someone explain by way of example?

The reference is here: http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/20770/RIM_background_element_1265316_11.jsp

notice the example there:

<content src="index.html" >
<rim:background src="listener.html" runOnStartup="true" />
</content>

 its means that the listener.html will be execute first when the device starts and / or when the application is installed ,

but,

the page of listener.html will not be appeared, it will work just on background.

Well what does that mean? can I pass stuff between the listener.html and the index.html? can it be used to loadstuff and switch between index.html and some other page? is it that variables set in listener.html are global and can therefore be used in index.html or some other page? 

 

What is the whole purpose of this?
