    Want to launch the "App Catalog" app from another app with parameters to open the page for a specific app.

    Yes, I know that you can launch the browser with the Palm URL redirect, but that opens a blank browser card AND the App Catalog app, which IMO is confusing to the end user.

    It's probably not possible because even the free demo 3D apps using the PDK uses the browser trick but I'd thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

    If anybody even knows the full name for the "App Catalog" app, I'm willing to try to figure out the parameters by brute force.

    Okay, now I realize that there is a way to do this because "Paratrooper Mini" does launch the App Catalog app directly without using the browser when you touch "Upgrade."

    I guess nobody wants to reveal the secret.

    Can't you find the full name by SSHing into the filesystem?

    A regular html link to the Palm redirect url from within an app launches the app catalog without a browser card, though it's a bit slow.

    Ahh, interesting. It works on the real hardware but when I do this in the emulator, it doesn't work. Strange.

    I guess that's good enough for now. I'd still like to find out how to call the App Catalog directly.

    not strange, since the emulator doesn't have an app catalog app

    Code:
    new Mojo.Service.Request("palm://com.palm.applicationManager", {
    		  method: "open",
    		  parameters:  {
    		      id: 'com.palm.app.findapps',
    		      params: {
    				  scene: 'page',
    		          target: 'http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=<your com.name.app id here>&spplicationid=<the app number>'
    		      }
    		  }
    		});
    i have a bit of a different structure, but that should work. let me know if it doesn't. if you don't know your app number, you can text yourself a link and it should be the number in the link.

    cheers

    thanks shanerooni for the code.
    one more question, where else can i get the app number other than text message as my country is not in the country list?
