Javascript in Blackberry 6 Browser

[ Edited ]

Hello everyone,


 I am currently new to development for the blackberry and I have a problem. I am currently developing lotus notes for the blackberry and using JavaScript on the web side of the form. I am looking for a way to close the browser application using: window.close(); , self.close(); , parent.close(); , System.exit(1);


window.close(); does nothing. According to the API it suppose to close the current page and bring the user to the previous page that is in history.


If I can get that working then my next question would be how would I clear the browser history through JavaScript.


Any ideas, All the help is greatly appreciated


Also, i was thinking about the closing the session of the blackberry. Would anyone have any idea how to do that

I checked this out a while ago, but from what I can rememeber you can only use window.close, if you opened the window using javscript. I believe its related to security.


Not sure if that will help you though!
