Since 4.0
Until 4.2

As of January of 2017 the BridgeIt project has been deprecated. As a result, this component has been removed from ICEfaces as of the 4.2 release.

The mobi:fetchContact component renders a button that launches the Bridgeit application on the user's device to retrieve the details of a particular contact stored in the device and upload such information to the server, storing the details in various properties of this component.

Getting Started

To start using the FetchContact component, place the mobi:fetchContact tag inside a form and bind the value (and optionally other attributes) to a backing bean property.

	<mobi:fetchContact id="contact" 
		buttonLabel="Fetch a Contact" 
		fields="name, email, phone"
