Sending email on the Playbook Simulator



I created a few codes to send an email via the playbook simulator on VMware@Windows 7. However, it doesn't work at all. Any idea?


added these on config.xml


<feature id="blackberry.invoke" required="true" version="1.0.0"/>
<feature id="blackberry.message" required="true" version="1.0.0"/>
 <feature id="blackberry.identity" required="true" version="1.0.0"/>
 <feature id="blackberry.find" required="true" version="1.0.0"/>
 <feature id="blackberry.invoke.MessageArguments" required="true" version=""/> 



the following javascript codes used in the html


var args = new blackberry.invoke.MessageArguments('test@test.com', 'Testing email', catItems[currentCatIndex][currentQuoteIndex]);

args.view = blackberry.invoke.MessageArguments.VIEW_NEW; 

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


Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Sending email on the Playbook Simulator

I don't believe the simulator for the Playbook has a message API? 





I'm sure there will be something provided eventually, but at the moment RIM hasn't released this ability on the Playbook in WebWorks.
