Open Map from BlackBerry Webworks

I do find that the BlackBerry invocation framework poorly documented, and confusing, since the format changed completely between the Playbook/Smartphone version and BB10 version, however, after a bit of searching and trial and error, I discovered how to open the native maps app using BlackBerry Webworks Invocation framework


action :”bb.action.MAP”,
type: “application/vnd.blackberry.string.address”,
data: “Paris, France” }
, onInvkeSuccess, onInvokeError);


Where onInvkeSuccess and onInvokeError are javascript functions that get called if things work, or don’t work.

This code applies to BB10 only.
