I've build 2 WebWorks apps for BlackBerry SmartPhones supporting versions 5.0 and above but I can't get the focus based navigation to work - at all on my Bold 9900.
The exact same code works fine on a Curve 9300.
I have the required tag in my config.xml file:
and I've tried all possible variations of adding the special attributes to make elements navigable (although I just want hyperlinks to work e.g. <a> tags):
<a href="blah" x-blackberry-focusable="true">click me</a>
all of the links are clickable from the touch screen, but I can't scroll to them and others I've shared my app with confirm on their Bold 9900's that the thumbscroll doesn't work there either.
If I can't find a solution to this I supose I'm going to try and "rol-my-own" focus based navigation on the page by tracking mouse movements... but I'd hate to expend the effort if there is a catch to making this work.
My WebWorks SDK/Tools might not be the very latest (less than 12mo. old but I haven't updated religiously) if there were any known bugs in previous versions I can certainly update if that will help.

Thanks Pumano- but I should have clarified that is exactly what I'm doing... and it works fine on older devices but fails on Bold 9900.
e.g. these are both in my config.xml
<feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog" required="true" version="126.96.36.199"/>

I'm going to peek into "rolling my own" implementation this weekend... if I don't find an ideal magic solution... I'll post the code back here for others...

It also looks like there has been some recent work on focus navigation that I see here in closed milestones...
I wonder if these improvements will "solve" my issue?
