Invoking browser on Playbook

I am having trouble getting the browser to start on the emulator when invoking it from web works

 

my manifest:

  <feature id="blackberry.app" required="true" version="1.0.0.0"/> <!-- playbook api acess-->
  <feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.invoke" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.invoke.BrowserArguments" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.identity" version="1.0.0"/>

 

code:

 

var args = new blackberry.invoke.BrowserArguments("http://www.cnn.com");

blackberry.invoke.invoke(blackberry.invoke.APP_BROWSER, args);

 

anyone got any ideas?

Re: Invoking browser on Playbook

The Simulator doesn't currently have that functionality (it can't play sound either) so we can just pray that our code is correct.

Re: Invoking browser on Playbook

did you add "http://www.cnn.com" to your config.xml file .

 

 <access uri="http://www.cnn.com" subdomains="true">  
<feature id="blackberry.app" required="true" version="1.0.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.invoke" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.invoke.BrowserArguments" version="1.0.0"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.identity" version="1.0.0"/>
</access>
