Not able to Close blackberry 7 browser from my native applicatiion

     Thanks! I am developing a BlackBerry 7 mobile native application. On click of button from my native application. It will be open a new URL in a separate browser. So, I want to close the opened browser. The open URL is separate domain, but that domain is returnning a page, that is actually my page, in this page i have tried following code. But, it is not working - 


      blackberry.app.exit(); window.close();System.exit();


          I have tried to open the URL in my native application using iframe. But, here always taking me splash screen instead of loading URL. So, please tell me any way due to I can access the url inside my blackberry 7 application and I have controll over the opened website. Or any other way to close the opened browser. To develp this project I am using HTML5, JQuery Mobile and BB WebWorks.

Re: Not able to Close blackberry 7 browser from my native applicatiion

Hi there, you won't be able to close the native browser with a JavaScript command on a web page. You would navigate to your remote URL with something like setting window.href; or something similar though. If your entire application is remotely hosted, you can simply set the URL in your config.xml to load the remote page (instead of loading index.html and invoking the browser.)
