    PlatformRequest() isn't working for me

    Working on my first app ever, not just Asha 501, and still a java beginner so I'm working blind here. (Please go easy on me)

    I cannot get platformRequest() to launch the urls that I need it to.

    They look like Hyperlinks (blue and underlined) but are non-functional.

    The browser/internet works fine on the device/emulator.

    Apologies if this is answered somewhere but I could not find it on these forums or indeed anywhere else.

    import javax.microedition.io.ConnectionNotFoundException;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.Command;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.Form;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.Item;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.ItemCommandListener;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.StringItem;
    public class pageView extends Form
    	private StringItem stringItemLink;
    	private String urlString = "http://www.google.com";
    	private Command urlCommand;
    	MyApp myapp;
    	public pageView(String title,final MyApp myApp) 
    		this.myApp = myApp;
    		this.append("The webpage I want is here:");
    		urlCommand = new Command(urlString, Command.ITEM, 1);
    		setStringItemLink(new StringItem(null, "Link Name", Item.HYPERLINK));
    		StringItemLink.setItemCommandListener(new ItemCommandListener() 
    		            public void commandAction(Command c, Item item) {
    		                    try {
    		                    } catch (ConnectionNotFoundException ex) {

    Note that this snippet would not compile in its current form. Perhaps just variables were renamed for the post, but if you changed it substantially, it is going to be difficult to find out what happened in the original.
    Steps you could try are
    - making sure that the command is actually executed, in the emulator it is rather painless, just put a breakpoint into the handler and the debugger will tell
    - checking if the exception gets raised for any reason
    - with the Asha platform, some actions have to be performed in secondary threads, http://developer.nokia.com/Resources...-commands.html and http://developer.nokia.com/Resources...tive-apis.html tells about them. While platformRequest is not listed in the articles, you may try wrapping it into a thread and see what happens

    Yes, I had to rename variables and it's not the complete code either. I will give that a try, Thank you!
