Re: Choose contact for sms

I believe the only way to do this would be to build it yourself using the Contacts API

Re: Choose contact for sms

Hello icecappacino,


I hope that my reply isn't too late but I just want to share this anyway.


You could achieve this through an extension using the choose() method found in the BlackBerryContactList class found here. This method launches the native contact list application and returns the Contact object of the selected contact.


A bit of a hassle for getting this functionality through extension though. Hopefully they include this feature on the Webworks API.


Happy Coding Smiley Happy
