How to invoke File Manager BB10?

Hello,

 

Is it possible to open a native bb10 file manager app from webworks? I haven't found anything expect file picker api which is not exactly what i want. I need just to invoke/open File manager inside some folder that is created by the app.

 

any hints are very welcome.

Thanks much

No I don't believe so. The invocation docs page about core applications does not include the File Manager app: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/invoking_core_apps.html

 

The file picker was designed to give apps an easy way to enable file selection.

Out of curiosity, what is the ultimate functionality you are after? Is it really just to invoke the File Manager with all of its functions or is there a smaller, specific use-case you're after?

Thanks for confirming guys.

 

I am writing an app that saves files under a certain directory. I wanted just to let the user the possibility to view the files from the app.

I have already written a simple html5 file manager within bbui.js Smiley Happy
