Touchscreen newbie question

Hey friends,

I have to develop an application that will work specifically on Storm, Storm2 and torch (Blackberry touchscreens).

What should JDK I use?  I was thinking about 4.7, but I was wondering if I should just use 5.0 as my API level?

Personally, I'd start with 5.0.  If it is true that storms initially shipped with 4.7, most people have updated their ASAP because 4.7 was much too bad (all the people I know with storms he cursed as he not there tomorrow for both they had 4.7 and immediately updated to 5.0 when it became available).

I don't think there are enough people left with 4.7 to justify the defeat on the extended features.

  • Hardware blackBerry Smartphones Dumb newbie question! :)

    Hi people,

    I'm new in the world of the blackberry and I'm about to take the plunge with a unlocked sim-free BB Bold to use in the United Kingdom on Vodafone. I read on the differences of software between BIS and BES and would go for a set - up BIS. My dumb newbie question is equipment arrives in version BES or BIS or not?

    Thanks in advance and do not hesitate to make fun of my madness

    Good answer Xandrex. However I'm still not clear as to the issue of equipment, I asked. The reason why I am wanting to buy "BOLD" a separate contract is.

    1. it will work a little cheaper over the life of a contract.

    2. I will get my "BOLD" much faster.

    3 UK networks have a reputation for crippling features in high-end etc phones then charge you more to get similar functionality via one of their services.

    4. they are very slow to provide updates of the firmware on their own brand of appliances.

    There was a little insinuation in my answer: basically, you buy a mobile phone, so you get a BIS/BES contract with a carrier who takes in charge that the mobile phone. A "BOLD" can be used like BIS or BES, it depends on the company.

    On the price, I'm sure the phone deal + contract is always cheaper than a "BOLD" (retail and not eBay from some guys) then a contract which is usable (that is, no GoDaddy or 0.01GBP / KB).

    for the speed, you are the one who knows.

    The thing of the cripping: the thing is, the updates are provided only by the suppliers (they get a barebone RIM OS, then add their stuff like facebook or AOL). Even if you buy a single "BOLD" without a contract, if you want to upgrade the regular way, you wait fot your carrier to publish the upgrade. Or you can do the regularly (which can be made with or without the purchase contract at the same time).

  • 2 blackBerry Smartphones newbie questions: do I need it, and how I spoil my phone?

    Sorry for the newbie questions:

    My IT has already set up my phone to receive email from their Blackberry Enterprise Server.

    (1) do I still need to install the desktop software?  Given that I can transfer files via Bluetooth from my laptop and my contacts/calendar/notes are stored on the Exchange Server, is there any point?

    (2) if I do not need to install it, given that my email is already working with BES, and the Office installation configures email settings, how do I keep the new Desktop install to mess up the current configuration of e-mail?

    Of all the notes of support on the software, looks like more trouble whereas at this stage.  I really need to treat it?

    Thank you.

    There is not much need of DTM, but it is convenient to update the OS of your BB. Sometimes there will be releases of minor bugs corrections and such to your BB - DTM will be meaningless and install them, while updating wireless could not detect them. For a major OS update, you want DTM, as it will do a backup/complete restoration of your BB, including configuration settings, and others so that you don't have to redo those. But, to your e-mail, calendar, contacts, etc. - you are right, it is useless given that your Exchange Server is actually your master with your BB being actually a backup of that (in a sense).

    In addition, USB drivers (which are part of the package DTM) are necessary in order to charge your BB via your laptop USB. You can download and install all the USB drivers if this is the only part of the DTM you want.

    When you install it, it will ask if you are in a company - say Yes and it will install properly. Installation when your PC is connected to your corporate network and your Outlook is open. Who will get the best and fastest configuration. When you install, do not let it select the functions of auto-launch... If you wish, attach your BB and manually run the DTM.

    Of all the notes of support on the software, looks like more trouble whereas at this stage.  I really need to treat it?

    Thank you.

    Basically, on the whole, I vote 'YES'. You get the USB charging. You can save if you wish. You get the device OS and other updates. Most of the reported problems are people using it to synchronize via USB things - you won't do that because most of your stuff will be syncing via BES OTA. Other things, you can simply drag-and - drop (music, videos, etc.). .. .follow these instructions (use the latest 5.0 DTM):

  • A LOT of Newbie Questions blackBerry smartphones. (Must be the easy answer!)

    Good, please excuse my ignorance... guys xD

    I just bought two s BlackBerry Curve 8530 from Sprint. I'm pretty tech savvy, but there are some things about this phone, I can just enter in two or three days I got em:

    Deleting photos: Well, then I'm in my media folder, in the images. I selects a photo and press the BlackBerry button and select Delete. Then he said: it is read-only, and when I remove it, the icon is still there. I tried to turn on/off the device, and it's still there. Thought this one myself. I plugged it up to the Desktop Manager and all of a sudden all the photos I had taken appeared. I was also able to delete using the "BlackBerry" button and then "delete". It doesn't give me that read this option.

    Saving images: So, for some reason I can't save more photos. I don't know even how I saved the first 12 photos I have taken... but now it won't save any more. What the hell happened? xD I have a 2GB card in my phone... surely these 12 images didn't fill in this card... Thought this one myself. I plugged it up to the Desktop Manager and all of a sudden all the photos I had taken appeared.

    Buy ringtones: On my old phone LG, I used to buy ringtones RealTone Jukebox... where they had extracted from songs that I could download for a crazyhigh. Where can I buy the real music ringtones for BlackBerry? What I do myself?

    Media moving to my PC?: I went through the music store of Sprint comes with my camera, and two purchased songs. I want to know if I can get these songs out of my BlackBerry smart phone and my PC. Also, if anyone knows what format they are in (if they bought before Sprint music store).

    To buy another memory card: Where the best place to buy one of these mini memory cards? One of my friends like, a 24 a concert... and I currently have a 2 gig (who, I should mention, is more fricken memory I have in the computer I do not write about this time xD) how can I find out if the card is compatible with my camera?

    WTF @ Redlight?: From time to time (we can always do that, I'm not sure), the little red light at the top of my unit starts to blink even if I do not have a weak battery or not new messages. It first happened lastnight when a friend sent me 3 IMs at once. I had to reboot my device and I think that he is stopped. Earlier, it happened again (I had several new messages) and this time whenever my display is on, the light was red only flashes do not. It can always be like this now, but I'm not sure. My camera is in the other room and I'm too lazy to check xD. Why would he do that? How can I get him to stop?

    Turn off the sound of the camera?: My camera makes the shutter of the camera, even when noise silence. Is there a way to stop this?


    Auto keyguard: I have EPIC hand-dial to people purse. In my view, it has a keyboard lock button in the dashboard of BlackBerry (that is the correct term for this?) But I want to get to the place where the keyboard auto-lock after a certain period of time. Is this possible? I saw somewhere about pressing the button mute will lock it... who is the top/center of the unit button?

    Key blackBerry?: Well, don't laugh, I know that I'm retarded. But, the key to the left of the beach towel... than the devil who called? He got the BlackBerry logo on it... is what he called the BlackBerry button? I know, I know, I'm retarded and could probably flip through the manual to figure it out... but still. I might as well ask now xD


    Choose the icons to display on the main screen: When I added an e-mail address, he put an icon on my main desktop, in the row of icons at the bottom of the screen. (where is my background image and all that). Can we choose the icons that we want to display on the main screen? I have really now, my calendar icon that I know that I use. I'd love to move the keyboard lock button here though... is it possible?

    Speaker?: How can I get speaker? xD

    Theme Studio (software, no associated device): Anyone used this? It is quite easy to use? I am tech savvy, but I don't want to just download a ton of programs on my PC that I won't use xD I'm working on the Desktop Manager and it takes forever. I want to make themes, but I'm curious to know how easy to use this program is... graduate to use design or if it would take a graph xD

    There may be an icon on the home screen of your camera to buy ringtones. Or you can open the browser and go to http://mobile.blackberry.com. There is a link of ringtones that you can click

    It is recommended to buy a microSD card to store your multimedia files, if you run out of memory on your device.


    Depending on what OS is your BlackBerry tells you what size you can buy a microSD card. You can check under Options | Topic (will appear as v4.xx.xxx). Look at the table on the following link to see what size you can get - http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB05461


    On the BlackBerry, go to Options | Media Media Card recommended parameters are:


    Media card support: WE

    Encryption mode: NO

    Mass storage support: WE

    Auto enable mass storage Mode when connected: YES


    Mass storage mode allows your BlackBerry to act as an extra drive when it is connected to your PC. It will appear as an extra drive letter in Windows Explorer. So you can just drag/release the multimedia files on your memory card

  • Newbie question - javascript - php HTML5 and HTTPS w

    Hi all

    Newbie question...

    I'm having a problem with browsers, mac and javascript...

    simple story:

    1. If I put the test on site NO SSL folder - everything works ok

    2 but if I put the same test on HTTPS site folder - MAC SAFARI gets / data displays ok but firefox MAC and Chrome don't receive data

    Q: why not? How do I fix this so work all browsers?

    ---

    CONFIGURE LIKE THIS...

    Page1.html

    Gets the data with this line...

    What was...

    $.get ('getdata.php', function (data, status) {})

    ... etc.

    also tried this (absolute ref)...

    $.get ('https://mysite.com/getdata.php', function (data, status) {})

    ... etc.

    and displays the data on the same page page1.html

    Safari for MAC = works but firefox and chrome do not display data HTTPS site but all work 3 over HTTPS no alternate test site. (using only this local demand = $.get ('getdata.php', function (data, status) {}))

    BTW: if I manually go to getdata.php he gets php data and display the data in json package very well

    Q: How can I test / solve this problem, so all 3 browsers work on HTTPS site?

    Curious to know why MAC SAFARI OS 10.10.4 was an error?

    There are differences in the way different browsers support SSL.

  • Newbie question - how to effectively check if photo is part of the selection

    Hi all

    Sorry for the newbie question, but I do not know how to solve, and I'm sure that there is a quick and easy answer to this:

    My goal is to get all the 'stack heads' (photos with Position 1 in batteries) selection ('photos' below).

    for I have, make photo in ipairs( photos )
    local date = picture:getFormattedMetadata("Filename")

    if Photo:getRawMetadata( "isInStackInFolder" ), then
    - Photo is in a stack
    local photoHeadOfStack = picture:getRawMetadata("topOfStackInFolderContainingPhoto")

    local stackPos = picture:getRawMetadata( "stackPositionInFolder" ), - get the position in the stack
    local photoHeadName = photoHeadOfStack:getFormattedMetadata("Filename")

    app:logVerbose(' Photo nb ^ 1, name ^ 2 is in a stack with the position ^ 3 ', i, date, stackPos"")

    if stackPos == 1 then
    - photo is the master of the battery
    stackTop[#stackTop+1] =photo
    app:logVerbose(' picture ^ 1 is the top of the stack ^ 2 ', date, #stackTop)

    -check if couple if it is correct
    elseif photos. photoHeadOfStack then
    app:logVerbose(' picture ^ 1 is in a stack, but not over the top. ") (Top of the stack already selected", date)

    other
    stackTop[#stackTop+1] =photoHeadOfStack
    app:logVerbose(' picture ^ 1 is in a stack, but not over the top. ") Top of the stack ^ 2 - ^ 3 ", date, #stackTop, photoHeadName)

    end
    end
    end


    In the if structure in the center of the Position in the stack control, if the Position is not 1, I would check if the photo to the stack ("photoHeadOfStack'") is part of the 'pictures '. I tried 'elseif photos.photoHeadOfStack then' and ' elseif photos [photoHeadOfStack] then ' but it doesn't work-> This elseif is never true even if 'photoHeadOfStack' part of the 'photos'.

    Any way to have this check done without checking the photos "manually"? (via e.g. a loop for)

    I'm sure that Lua offers this, but I do not know how...


    Thank you for your support!

        --[[ This code creates "stackTops", an array of LrPhotos that are the
        tops of all the stacks containing photos in the array
        "photos". ]]

    for _, photo in ipairs (photos) do
        local stackTop = photo:getRawMetadata ("topOfStackInFolderContainingPhoto")
        if stackTop ~= nil then stackTopSet [stackTop] = true end
        end
    stackTops = {}
    for photo, _ in pairs (stackTopSet) do table.insert (stackTops, photo) end
    
  • Newbie question: how to extend in unallocated disk in a VM XP?

    Hi all:

    This is a newbie question, but looking for answers only left confused me...

    I have VM Fusion (v2.0.6) running on a MAC (OS X - Snow Leopard) with an XP VM. When the XP VM has been implemented, it has been implemented with 20 GB hard drive space. I used VM Ware Virtual Machine settings to increase the disk space of 50 GB. (I left the "pre-allocate disk space' and 'divide into 2 GB files' options unchecked.) I don't have any snapshots during execution/implementation.

    However, my current XP VM flashing me alerts "low disk space" - I see only about 1 GB of free 20 GB (I don't see the 40 GB listed in 'My Computer'). When I use the Services of management of disk in XP, I see a disk 0 20 GB System Partition with 30 GB of unallocated space.

    How can I extend the current Parition (System) in the space of 30 additional GB? And do I have I done this to begin with?

    Thanks in advance!

  • NFS Newbie question

    Sorry for the newbie question.

    I have a small test system I try to enable NFS on.  Very low indeed. Basically just a little sin, the switch, the pc and esxi (3.5u4) box.

    all devices are on the same subnet. ESX is single hosted to the switch. (I know, bad practice to use the interface of mgmt for storage, but just try to keep things simple for this)

    I tried to create a second instance of vmkernel with a different ip address on the same subnet, but the GUI yelled at me.  I tried to find a way to enable NFS on the existing management interface, but could not find a way to do it. I googled around and I saw that I need to create a vmkernel another example to enable NFS.

    So the question is, is it possible to have a box unique esx hosted with NFS, mgmt and storage enabled without VLANing it?  Am I missing something obvious?

    Thank you

    Chris

    Yes it is possible as mgmt have already vmkernel, you could simply add network (same subnet) storage & you have not need to allow anything else on ESXi.

    Just go to configuration-> storage-> add storage

  • Newbie Question: What should I put in for "Hostname" in the DNS Configuration during install ESXi

    Note: I'm not a professional but rather an amateur trying to test the power of virtualization technology. I understand the IP addresses and how to configure my router, Setup static IP address and build my own computer, but I have some limited knowledge when it comes to the configuration of the servers. All I want to do is use this ESXi server locally in my house to run several operating systems on one physical box. I really don't want to have a server on the internet, I think that Comcast doesn't let me run the servers with dynamic IP package I have. In any case, here's my problem:

    I followed with the installation of the link video tutorial ESXi in the intro email vmware sends you after registering. I'm around the 14:30 mark minute now where we are the management network configuration in the configuration menu of DNS.

    The tutorial guys sets its hostname to something he obviously installation but mine appears as "localhost.hsd1.ca.comcast.net". I do not understand what I do when I set up a host name - and as I said above, I don't want to be put in place a server on the comcast network.

    I think I'm a bit confused and don't know what to put in host name. I tried "localhost" and also "localhost.hsd1.ca.comcast.net" but hen t when I chose "network of test management", I got a message of failure for hostname.

    Sorry if it's a super newbie question, but I will not continue to implement virtual machines or what then if this setting is incorrect. I appreciate your time in reading this / to help me. Thank you.

    UPDATE: Ok, so since I'm impatient, I tried just letting the host name to what it was and continues with tutorial and realized that I could simply type the address static IP address from my ESXi server in my web browser from another computer on my home network to get the VI of the esxi Server client , then I typed just 192.168.1.50 which is that I put it was and it was successful! Is there a reason to set a host name then?

    So, my next question becomes: can I run my windows XP 64 OS at the same time as the ESXi Server? Each are installed on different disks in the same physical box, but this computer is one of my main computers that I work on in windows every day so ideally I would have ESXi running but also be able to use the base operating system. Is this possible or am I just dreaming / confused?

    Your welcome hardnesses, I think you can try to re-insalling ESXi with the hostanme you want, or you can connect to the existing installation with an unsupported option and try the same thing.

  • Newbie question re: 'break' a path

    Hello... Sorry for the newbie question... I imported this vector image in Illustrator CS5:

    5-3-2012 10-42-59 PM.jpg

    I want to isolate each of the children, so I can use the live paint to color to each child a different color.

    I can do this:

    5-3-2012 10-48-56 PM.jpg

    But I want every child to be a different color. And it's all a way.

    Thank you.

    I find the tool knife difficult to control unless it is a straight line, but you can draw a path and with the selected path only, choose object > path > divide objects below. The image below shows a path that I draw pretty closely with the pencil tool. You can also correct and refine tracks selected by drawing the wire segments of them using the pencil tool and all in using it, holding that alt will smooth the path. To control how the pencil tool behave click twice on the tool in the tool box and it will display a window with options.

    However, in this case, most likely I'll do it in another way.

    First of all, copy the path and paste it at the front 5 times (for 5 children). While the path top of the stack is still selected, change the color of it with the color for the first child, and then using the pencil tool as described above, correct the path to limit it to the silhouette of the first child. The red line on the image below shows where I've drawn with the pencil tool to limit the upper path for the first child. Important during the correction of the paths with the pencil tool is to begin and end the segment based on the original path, or if you start or finish too far from the path, you will create a new path instead of correct that you selected. After correcting the path for the first child, you can select the following path and continue as it fix the paths for each child. Alternatively, instead of paste all roads at the beginning you can stick behind or in front after having corrected the path for each child. Also, except for children at the ends, he must correct the path for other children with both hands. The advantage of this method in the first (with dividing the items below) is that you can move and the path of each child space independently and the hands will look always complete.

    Looking for some quick info to get used to the speed (note that I Master Collection CS5.5):

    1. Type of code: Action Script 3 ? HTML? Or lazy build in Flash?
    2. We would start Flash or Flex SDK?
    3. Currently, they want to read on an iPad... then tomorrow a Playbook... but always on an iPhone and EVO... is it something to be considered early in the process?

    I realize, these are newbie questions VERY and it's a long way to follow, thank you for contributing to the trip!

    Hi Nick,

    I think it depends on type of content/content/deployment.

    If it's only video content to be played in standalone or web apps that look like native and support wide range of devices - then your suite already comes with Dreamweaver 5.5 - who has for example jQuery Mobile for web based application development/deployment and PhoneGab for native-app - all code development with html/javascript and two of them takes charge of video content.

    With Flash CS5.5 you get timeline based development and authoring tools - but nothing in the simplified UI that comes with the spark in Flash Builder (Flex SDK). Outputs the CS5.5 Flash and Flash Builder 4.5 using the same development tools Adobe Air (more to read on the page of software development given).

    Oh: web development with Dreamweaver and jQM does not require App Store submission process required otherwise for the content generated with Flash CS/Flash Builder or with PhoneGap in DreamWeaver.

    Kind regards

  • Newbie question - passing variables (aka why this work?)

    I spent a few hours in vain trying to pass the value of a html text box to a coldfusion page 2nd via the URL (query string).

    However, it seems that I can't do this because the 2nd page seems to be able to reference the value in box of text in any case.  My question is: is this a coincidence, or is this the normal procedure, things work?  When I click the "Run report" button, everything I typed in the text box appears on the screen of page2.cfm.  I thought I should pass this value somehow (via the variables session or the URL string or something).

    So my newbie question is: is this the way it should work (a simple answer Yes or no is fine)A text from one box. CFM file can reference the value of text box on the other. CFM page? Thanks in advance

    Here is the page 1 (page1.cfm):

    <! DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional / / BY" > ".
    < html >
    < body >

    " < CFform action = ' http://www.mywebsite.com/page2.cfm "method ="get"> "
    Cust ID: < cfinput type = "text" name = "CustomerID" >
    < input type = value = "run report" >

    < / CFFORM >
    < / body >
    < / html >

    Page 2 (page2.cfm) here which works fine and shows what I typed in the text box:

    < CFOUTPUT >
    #CUSTID #.
    < / CFOUTPUT >

    I was already typing this until Ian replied. But I may as well post it in case it helps...

    If you know that he or she is actually what you 're doing.

    "> http://www.mywebsite.com/page2.cfm" method = "get" >
    > Cust ID:

    When you use method = "get", the form field, the variables are passed in the query string. So, if you enter "abc" in the text box, the URL submitted will be:

    http://www.mywebsite.com/page2.cfm? CustID = abc

    So 'CustomerID' will be available as a variable within the scope of the URL on page 2.

    > * Here's page 2 (page2.cfm) which works fine and shows
    > what I typed in the text box: *.
    >
    > #CUSTID #.
    >

    The reason for which he works is a little magic CF. The variable #custID # not be bounded, CF search this variable in a predefined list of staves (see link below). It looks in each of them, and uses the first value it finds. Although not the exact search order, CF will check the

    http://livedocs.Adobe.com/ColdFusion/8/Variables_32.html
    -VARIABLES in scope (at the time..)
    -Reach URL (at the time..)
    -FORM scope (at the time..)
    ... etc...

    In your case, the variable exists in the scope of the URL. If your code is equivalent to saying

    #url. CUSTOMERID #.

    It is in fact a practice better coding. Although the original code works without the scope of variables, providing an explicit framework is more efficient and avoids unitentional errors.  For example if the code on page 2:


         #CUSTID #.

    ... the output may not be what you would expect ;-)

    So to answer the question: Yes, that's what must happen.  However, you must explicitly scope your variables page 2 IE use #url.custID #.
