Hi, I really want to know how to do this. I have an idea for several cool apps (for which I even won a PB from crackberry for). I have been searching online but I kind of tire from going site to site that don't really tell me a lot. I ha e downloaded I think everything I need for html5 for BB & PB. I don't want to limit myself though. I don't know what the differences are between the methods (native, css, java), but I'd like to learn.

I've been trying to understand the BlackBerry development side of things for a while.
I want to make a simple HTML site that can be used by all and any devices (desktops, mobiles, everything). I would code it so the layout was flexible to ensure every screen size could view it.
I'm not looking to make a native BB app or a mobile-only site.
I also want to support various features on a Blackberry, especially grabbing and storing a user's BB PIN when they log in.
Can you clarify my understand of these with a few questions?
Thanks in advance.
(2) Can I grab the BB PIN on a standard HTML site that may be ran in a web browser (obviously not if I'm using a desktop PC's web browser, but the code would be in place for whenever a BlackBerry was used so it could grab it then)?
So basically I just need to grab the BB PIN in a HTML application. Is this possible without a native app?

I do see this:
I can't find anything where you could use JS in a standard web page.
If anyone knows for certain that it can;t be done then please tell me so I can stop looking.
Thanks for any help.

That said I haven't tried it and the reason for this is I don't have a BlackBerry device.
So, I have created a web page using what I believe the code should be. Can someone view the web page and tell me what appears (on a BlackBerry), Also, the BB OS version would help.

ignites, can you be more clear with what you are saying?
Which of these do you mean? Please answer 1 or 2.
it should work only in webworks apps AND ripple simulator as it requires the permissions settings in the config files to access personal information (pin)

Okay so I tried the "Make your website into an App in 3 mins" method on the DeviantArt website and it worked...until I tried to log onto DA. Have no idea what to do from there. I'm completely new to this, I've created a website before using Dreamweaver if that helps (it was 2 or 3 years ago though). I can upload my index.html and config.xml files if that will help. They're really just the API with an extra bit of coding I tried to use from the video.Proud Blackberry 9850 and Playbook 16GB owner
