Invoking Application Permissions page?

I've got access_shared + read_device_identifying_information permissions set in my app


I do a check on startup


if(!blackberry.system.hasPermission("access_shared")) {
  // Output a message to the user

  // Close app button


This basically shows the user a screen explaining that the denied permission stops the app working and tells them how to switch it on


At this point the only option the app has is to close


It would be preferable if I could add another choice for the user which opens Application Permission, ideally with MyApp presented, so they can enable the required permission is they so desire


I kniow there are a LOT of un-documented invoke / card 'things you can do' but can't work out the particular request to make this happen


As this is required for B4BB it is a useful recipe for any WW developer's cookbook

Looks like you can't go as far as you'd like, but you can get pretty close:
