blackberry.identity.uuid and WebWorks On Z10 = undefined?



I'm trying to get the UUID / PIN. All I get is undefined on the Z10 when I run it. I can't seem to figure out why. I think I  have all the required components for it to work correctly. 


My code looks like this:


        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"> 
        <title>MY APP</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="./jquery/jquery.mobile-1.3.0/jquery.mobile-1.3.0.min.css" />
        <script src="./jquery/jquery-1.8.3.min.js"></script>
        <script src="./jquery/jquery.mobile-1.3.0/jquery.mobile-1.3.0.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.blackberry.com/app_includes/asdk/adBanner.js"></script>
        <script src="local:///chrome/webworks.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

        <script type="text/javascript">
var dHeight=window.innerHeight;
            var dWidth=window.innerWidth;
            var uuid =  null;
                    uuid = blackberry.identity.uuid;


    <body style="padding: 0;margin: 0">
<div>HELLO WORLD</div>

My config.xml looks like this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
        version="" id="myapp" xml:lang="en"

You need to wait for the webworksready event to fire.

Re: blackberry.identity.uuid and WebWorks On Z10 = undefined?

Thanks for the quick response. 


I still have no luck getting it to work. I added a listener:

            window.addEventListener("load", function(e) {
                document.addEventListener("webworksready", function(z){
            }, false);

 Still it never fires up. Any idea as to why?


For the record, jquery events fire up nicely no problem but I still can't access any of the webworks API.

Did you upload your app in debug mode to see if you didn't get any errors?
It could be that something failed to load and just stopped the script.


EDIT: Just read the other thread and it seems that the problem lies with the advertising API not being ready yet... Smiley Sad

Re: blackberry.identity.uuid and WebWorks On Z10 = undefined?



I finally figured it out. 


My app relies on :

- jquerymobile (1.3.0) and jquery 1.8.3.  I'm not sure if it has an impact or not but I thought I'd share anyway.


For some reason, it is fine to put all of my scripts in the <HEAD> of my html document on Chrome running Ripple.


However, on the BB Z10, it doesn't seem to be able to see/execute the following line from the <HEAD> tag : <script type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="local:///chrome/webworks.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

 Looking through the examples I realized that it was part of the <BODY> tag. By moving the script from <HEAD> to <BODY> gave me access to all of the webworks API right away.


I tested blackberry.identity.uuid and managed to generate an alert of the PIN right away.


I hope this post might help someone else in the future as simple as it might be Smiley Happy
