Before you begin

You should have the following things ready:

  • The BlackBerry 10 Native SDK
  • A device or simulator running BlackBerry 10

If this is your first app, you can download the tools that you need and learn how to create, build, and run your first Cascades project.

Downloading the full source code

This tutorial uses a step-by-step approach to build an app that uses the Places framework. If you want to look at the complete source code for the app, you can download the complete project and import it into the Momentics IDE for BlackBerry. To learn how, see Importing and exporting projects.

Set up your project

Before we start creating our application, create an empty project in the Momentics IDE using the standard empty project template. To make it easier to follow along, this tutorial assumes that you name your project PlacePicker. We need to import the following image:
