Question How to set reminder alarm on ToDo object?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to programmatically set the reminder alarm on a ToDo object? I have the following code that sets the Summary, Note, and Due date, but I could not find a constant for setting the Alarm.

ToDoList list = (ToDoList) PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(PIM.TODO_LIST, PIM.READ_WRITE);
BlackBerryToDo e = (BlackBerryToDo) list.createToDo();
if (list.isSupportedField(BlackBerryToDo.SUMMARY)) e.addString(BlackBerryToDo.SUMMARY, 0, subject);
if (list.isSupportedField(BlackBerryToDo.NOTE)) e.addString(BlackBerryToDo.NOTE, 0, bodyText);
if (list.isSupportedField(BlackBerryToDo.DUE)) e.addDate(BlackBerryToDo.DUE, 0, scheduleDate);
Here is some similar code that I use to set the Alarm for a Calendar Event, but I can't seem to find the corresponding code for a ToDo.

EventList list = (EventList) PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(PIM.EVENT_LIST, PIM.READ_WRITE);
BlackBerryEvent e = (BlackBerryEvent) list.createEvent();
if (list.isSupportedField(BlackBerryEvent.ALARM)) e.addInt(BlackBerryEvent.ALARM, 0, 0);
I've tried setting the reminder manually on an existing ToDo, and then reading it by cycling through the getFields() result, but I can't find anywhere that it stores my reminder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
