After watching the videos from BlackBerry Jam and going through the UI Guidelines (and any other
documentation I can find), I am trying to implement the Peek function in the jQuery Mobile BB10
Everything works great when I click the Back button on a page. (The page slides to the right to
reveal the higher level in the hierarchy.)
If the user is suppose to be able to control the Peek with their finger, should I code the Back
button to somehow move as the user moves their finger? Then I am assuming that once a threshold is
reached the page continues to move to the right to reveal the underlying page?
Also, should an active touch area also be defined on the left side of the window that allows the
user to swipe across the page in a non-precise manner (as suggested in the videos)? Will this active area interfere with a bezel gesture, such as switching to another app on the PlayBook?
If Peek is suppose to be a core component in the new BB10 experience, I have a feeling developers will be all over the place with this if it is not included in the development framework. (Just a thought....)
Solved! Go to Solution.

Peek will be supported in WebWorks, I'm not sure if it will be easier or more difficult using jQuery Mobile, but it is possible.
I guess they might address that in tomorrow's webworks webinar.

Thanks, I am registered for the Webinar.
I am seriously reconsidering my choice to develop my apps in the jQuery Mobile BB10 Theme. It doesn't seem like it is as far along as Cascades or bbUI.js. I keep trying to put things in my code that aren't in the development framework. I find myself spending too much time discovering what doesn't work and then trying to hack around it.
I will update this post if it is discussed during the presentation.

I have an example picture viewer card that uses jquery mobile and peek that I will putting up tomorrow monring.
I will tweet about it when I merge it into the BB10-Samples repo.
