Hello everyone,

 

Is there any way to automatically control the volume level when opening a app?

Re: Volume Control API

I'm afraid you can't.

Probably the only way out is to develop an extension to do it.

WebWorks supports JavaScript extensions, which can be developed externally and give you access to APIs which are not part of WebWorks itself (yet).

There are plenty of such extensions developed by the community for phones and some for the tablet. I can't seem to find one for the volume, but you can follow the instructions and examples and try to develop your own (and then give it back to the community Smiley Wink

Re: Volume Control API

Jerde - what BlackBerry device platform are you looking for this feature on?

 

I've just added the following request to Github, indicating BlackBerry 10 as an initial target platform for this API.

https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Community-APIs/issues/96

 

 

Any keen developers out there interested in implementing this extension and contributing it back to Github?

Re: Volume Control API

I would if I could understand your Native Extension sample but at this time I do not and it is really a big thing to do WebWorks and understand/search the Native API to use the right functionality. Smiley Wink

Re: Volume Control API

Hello astanley, nice to see that it's been submitted for BlackBerry 10 as I could use it when adding my app to that platform.

 

Currently, I'm looking to implement a volume control API using webworks with the PlayBook and OS 7 devices. 

 

Thanks!
