Hi All,

I'm trying to explore the available native plugins in outsystems now native app (android).

Is there a way to access/display the contact list/calendar thru the app?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paulo,

Sorry for the late reply.
With OutSystems Now you can add contacts and events to your device.
Also, with some additional javascript code you can do what you are asking.
For more info and details of Cordova plugins, please check our documentation available on: http://labs.outsystems.net/OutSystemsNowDocs/OutSystemsNowFeatures.aspx

The action included allows you to create a new contact, but is there a way to search for and launch an existing contact?  Or does this action check ahead of time?
Yea I would like to GET the contact detail from the phone and not ADD, any solution?
