Calendar API?



Any news about accessing the calendar through an API? Am working on an app so the PB can be used as a meeting room display and currently using it with a webservice, but would like to integrate it with the build in calendar, so we could integrate it with exchange, gmail calendar etc. through there. But havent found any API where I can access the calender, so wondered if there was a genius in this forum who had a workaround to the calendar issue?


Also - anyone found a way to disable the b..... xxxx standby timeout?

Re: Calendar API?

There are no APIs on any of the platforms at the moment to make this happen. They will be coming to BB10 first.

Re: Calendar API?

Hi Marker,
Do you mean to disable the automatic dim of the screen? There is an extension for that, check the webworks communities APIs.
