Coverage of the app / App frame webworks?


Does anyone know if App covers (QNXCover in the native world) is available in Webworks and how to use towing?

An example would be greatly appreciated.

For app covers, I want to tell the screen of the application when the application is reduced and display to the homescreen of BB10, as in the first screenshot here:

IV ' e only found examples / api for Air and C++, but nothing for Webworks:

Thanks in advance!

  • Requesting help to quickly test the app photo webworks on device Dev Alpha

    Hello world

    I was wondering if there is a developer who has a dev peripheral alpha ready to do a quick test drive of a photo app that we built.  It runs in the ripple and the Simulator, but it's really hard to tell if there will be questions about the real deal :-)

    If you could provide assistance to another developer, it would be much appreciated!


    You have a message. With a few screenshots set.

  • Make the text selectable in WebWorks App

    I created a PlayBook application using WebWorks, HTML and CSS and the app offers a great HTML textarea. For some reason, the user cannot select text to copy or paste text in.

    Is there something special that needs to be done to enable text selection? I checked my code and see nothing that prohibits text selection.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I tracked the solution (thanks to geniuses behind the app preview PlayBook). Check it out here:

  • Super App, link the calendar to my webworks app.


    I was wondering if someone can suggest and approach to achieve the following objectives. I am writing a webworks app that will add appointments to the native blackberry calendar. In field notes would be a link that allows you to jump into the webworks app. for example

    This link should be webworks out of the background applications and bring to the foreground and then show customer number 10 details.

    I started to address this problem by using a httpfilter for the domain "

    HttpFilterRegistry.registerFilter ("", "mypackage.filters", true);

    in the method of the file openFilter filter I can see the name of the url (for example the action and the customer number etc.), but where I'm stuck is to identify mechanisms to invoke the JavaScript on my webworks app to bring to the forefront and to charge the customer.

    My current setup is an app of webworks with a native extension that records the httpfilter. At this point, I tried store away a reference to the scripting engine, the reference to javascript to call as a parameter to the method of extension, but when the URL is intercepted and I try to read read the script engine or the javascript reference, they are zero. I suspect that the httpfilter is picked up in a space of different application or something? S

    If someone can tell me how to leave a httpfilter to call my webworks app and give him the necessary information to pass to the right pages.

    Managed to fix this using using the ApplicationManager and post a global event and have a global event listener in my webworks application manage just incase of anyone trying to do something similar

  • [request] Signature of the App using RBR, CPR, RRT

    Hi all

    I want to create a new version of the app. The app is built using Webworks 1.0. But when I tried to sign, it always displays error because I'm not using the same key signature. How to find the old signature key? Could we ask the signing key using the same ID?

    Thank you.

    Sorry for the late reply. It's for blackberry 10. I found the old barsigner and I could sign the application now.

    Thank you very much.

  • Player of the app

    Base: can do us our own 'player of the app?

    Background: RIM announced the PlayBook, they said he'd go HTML5/WebWorks, Adobe Air, Native and have a reader App Android and a BlackBerry App Player. Once completed a webcast on Vitosha boulevard, I asked "is it possible to do our own reader app? They don't seem to understand what was a player of the App. Despite everything, I love the idea of what we'll call probably better an emulator that runs dedicated applications. So instead of opening the player emulator/app and then clicking Open and open an application, you simply click on an application as it is and he will call the emulator automatically.

    Detailed: so, is this possible with the NDK to make a 'Player app? The best version would be described above, click on an icon (like any other application) and it opens and an app that would not otherwise go on the PlayBook/BBX would be able to operate like any other application.

    (Ignoring the signature at this time) The idea that I've been thinking about the how this would work is to write it is similar to the Android runtime and then just 'package' of the application to a BAR so it can be deployed.

    Now, if this is not possible, that a "Launcher" app is written so that a utility "packer" could take the app and the data, combine it with the "Launcher" in a BAR in the file, then calling a library that has the real system "emulation"?

    I don't know the internal details about the Android runtime or how different game engines work (if they use one of the methods above, or something different).

    I want to avoid is basically "you can write a library and then write a separate application that would call while the library.

    But that's why I'm asking. This is one of the 2 methods mentioned? The standard library + app (which then defeats the purpose)? Or is it a RIM + partners the only thing (at least this time)?

    You can't not do it for security and brand protection issues. If you want to use the shared, library or runtime shared (i.e. If you have written your own java runtime lets say) you will need to package is also 'captive' in your own file bar.

    Installation of shared resources is not currently supported on the platform.

  • New version of the app is signed with old/invalid signature keys


    My application (the only Rdio cirrently client available for BB10), broke from the OS 10.1. I put off fixing it because I had passed to Android, but I want to make it work again. It's a WebWorks app, and the versions currently in App World are signed with the old style keys. I tried a number of different methods of conversion/link my old signature with my BBID keys, but nothing that I've done the work. The closest I came to a successful outing is an App World error, saying: the keys are incompatible with previous versions.

    At this point, I just want to sign it with my new keys, but I can't download on App World from my existing application bears the same name. Because the app is broken for 2 years, I don't think it would be much of a loss to wipe out the 50 + 1 star reviews that said: it's broken.

    I built this app as sort of a 'labor of love' because I can't charge due to conditions of use Rdio. Really, I'd like to see people who can use it and get some good reviews for an application that works fine in a browser and on Android.

    I couldn't find info of direct contact for support to BlackBerry developers, so I'll also here: can someone help me get a working version of newly signed my existing application?

    For the curious, the app was introduced with a flourish by launching:

    You can use the linked form to below to ask that the BlackBerry World supplier management team reset your existing Package ID.  This will allow you to download a new version signed with a different key.

  • < img > image not cached in app BB10 Webworks


    Is there some configuration setting, that I need to use to get Webworks (on BB10) to cache images served from a server?

    I have a BB10 Webworks app that dynamically adds and remove the DOM html.  Images referenced in items loading as expected, but if the item is removed from the DOM, and later added again, Webworks reloads the image file from the server, rather than using a cached version.  (I can watch what is happening in the Web Inspector).

    If I run the code in a browser, Chrome on Windows, it behaves correctly, by using the cached copy of the image when the new item is added to the Dom.

    The frequency from the server HTTP headers are:

    Cache-Control, must-revalidate
    Content-length: 1730
    Content-Type: image / jpeg

    So, with response codes above, Chrome set cache the image as expected, while the BB10 Webworks reload from the server each time (no caching).

    I'm running on a version of the software Blackberry Z10, model number STL100-3,, and the app is created using Blackberry 10 Webworks SDK

    What Miss me?

    Thank you


    My apologies for the confusion.  The purpose of qnx is only available in a native extension running inside the app - not directly from JavaScript running in your application.

    Here is an example of an extension that uses the qnx object:

  • How to create the cover of the app for my application


    Please help me with step by step tutorial how to create an appcover for my application! I'm kinda noob on C++ and I read the paper, but could not apply! (didn't know where to put the code - C++ part) not Qml

    I want to put a picture of the asset as a cover of the app

    Your prompt response is much appreciated!

    You can do with QML also.

    Follow this Code:

    import bb.cascades 1.4
    Page {
        attachedObjects: [
            //Active Frame is called as Scene Cover
            SceneCover {
                id: activeFrame
                content: Container {
                    //To Do Fill Me with QML
                    //fill what you want. Image, Label, much more
        Label {
            text: "Hello World"
    // After Application is minimised or Active Framed This Function shows
    onCreationCompleted: {

    This is how you create with QML. C++ is used for highly recommended as animative and well known to the user.

  • To open the app in the simulator of BB 10 Alpha Dev in debug mode


    I develop black berry 10 webworks app. I use the latest version of the sdk provided and the dev alpha 10 blackberry Simulator to run the application. I am also using the ripple chrome emulator to test and debug the application.

    I want to debug the application on the simulator using the browser webkit or something like that, but for some reason I'm not able to do.

    While the application of packing, I inserted the - d option. It says on the bb site which

    "With your application running in the Simulator in a desktop browser, type http://:."

    I tried to but could not see the application in debug mode.

    I tried port numbers, since I was on the apache server


    Could any body help me with this

    Thank you very much in advance

    See you soon

    Because you added the - d option, it should work very well. All you need to do is put the device/Simulator in developer mode (settings-> Security-> Developer Mode) and I guess you have already done this. In almost all cases, I worked with BB PlayBook and BB10 all what you need to do now is the point of your browser Chrome this URL + port:


    The INVESTIGATION period should not be the problem since you already deployed the app on the Simulator, I guess? So give it a try with the port number and it should work now.

  • Alerts within the app using

    Great question and the answer is: Yes you can.

    To do this, you must set a element to the JavaScript API in the config.xml file.  Once this operation is complete, you can then make a call to the property to retrieve the value of the 'version' field that is defined in your config.xml file.  Note You can even use to dynamically fill the value "MyAppName" in your about box.

    function showAbout()
        var s = "v" + + "\n";
        s += "©" + + "\n";
        s += "By: " + + "\n";
        s +=;

  • Return to the home screen of the App

    Hi guys,.

    I installed my WebWorks and the app SketchPad was correctly executed on a simulator, although .

    Now, I have some questions for you guys:

    (1) I am inside my sketchbook app and want to return to the home screen (I mean Office of the PlayBook). How can I do this?

    (2) how can I know what to do for PlayBook and can they do with mouse (Swipe)?

    (3) where can I see a list of all the applications installed on the PB?

    I'll come with some questions for you guys.

    Many thanks for any help in this regard,


    1) click your mouse on the bottom bevel (a black bar that surrounds the PlayBook screen) and drag it upward, upward.  This will minimize the app, and you can close it from there.

    (2) touch interactions with WebWorks come the WebKit engine underlying, that supports the TouchStart event, touchstart and TouchMove (as well as all mouse events too).  Application gestures will have to be implemented on your own.  This is possible thanks to the time tracking & location of events sequential touch measure the direction and speed of a given 'gesture'.

    3) click on the category 'All' from the home screen to see all applications.

  • Status of the App (? refused)

    Hi all!

    On 24 November, I presented an update the portal provider for an existing application of Blackbery Playbook.  Then, four days later, I introduced a brand new Blackberry 10 application.  The update of the app Playbook still has a status of 'new', but the 10 BB app has already been discussed.  Is this normal?  I'm a little worried that I misunderstood the update process.

    Unfortunately, I submitted my app just before the BB and Webworks 1.0.3 is out (at least just before I put the hand on them), so my app turned out to be incompatible with the last update.  So my app was denied and the status is "QNX - waiting on seller."  I presented an update in the same way as I did with the Playbook application, which has created another ticket with the status "new".

    If the ticket ID are of no use, or if I can provide more information, please let me know.  I'm really afraid that my BB10 update will not get reviewed because the original version has the status "pending provider."

    Yes, my Playbook application has finally discussed.  I don't know if they have two different teams working on the Playbook and BB10 or two different teams working on new vs. updated apps.  Whatever it is, the applications are not reviewed on the basis of first-come, first served.

    In addition, it may take time for apps get through.  My average time so far was about 2 weeks after the date of presentation at the same time I can have it in the Blackberry world, assuming that it has not been rejected.  Obviously, rejected apps must resubmit and then go through another process of review of 2 weeks.

  • No methodActions in a module of the App application and access of backing bean

    USNG ADF 12 c on Windows 7.

    I've inherited an application that does not have methodActions defined in the pageDefs and uses a custom method to get the instance of the app module (return (appModule) getDCBindingContainer () .getDataControl () .getDataProvider ()) by supporting beans.

    The latest I can remember seeing in a document is a bad practice.

    All the places where the app module instance is acquired should be changed to methodActions? Or am I worried for nothing here?

    Thanks for your opinion!

    Kind regards


    ^ Well, for me, this is a no go to use the code you provided. You should not use the application module in the bean because it tends to violate the MVC pattern. You may have to implement a method of the application module, add to the interface and use via the pageDef as an action method customer. This seems to be more work but allows to encapsulate the business logic in the view layer. The advantage of using methods defined in the pagedef, is that they are handling errors the same way. There is no need to handle the error yourself. The framework know dangels done in methods (if you do not use pl/sql to change the db directly and does not synchronize the frame later).

    request module is the interface that everyone should use.
