Default Help - PIMListListener for Events

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone this problem?

"I'm trying to write an application that interacts with User's calendar. I want to get notified when an event is deleted. I have added PIMListListener for EVENT_LIST as given in the example. When an event is deleted, I'm getting notified through itemRemoved() callback. However I am not able to get the UID of the object. Query for UID "((Event)item).getString(Event.UID)" results in ArrayOutOfBoundsException. I could retrieve rest of the fields of the item (Start,End, Alarm etc.) without any problem."
Query for UID "((Contact)item).getString(Contact.UID)" works fine.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I heard that if you use a private static variable (declare the event list as static), the listener will stay continuously resident.

I confirmed this on RIM Developer's forum as well.

It's a known issue, that you are not able to get the UID from an event item once it has been deleted. I have been told it is fixed in 4.0
