Skip list screen and go directly to detail screen

A lot of times I don't need the list screen, because only one item is available.

Now I would like to skip the list screen and go to the detailscreen.

I thought to use the api navigateForward(toScreen, listViewKey) for this, but in which method do I have to put this api in the custom.js file and how can I declare that the first row should be displayed in the detail screen.

An example would be appreciated.

    You could add in something like the following pseudo-code into customBeforeNavigateForward:

    if (destScreenKey === "MyListviewScreen")


    var mvc = getCurrentMessageValueCollection();

    var data = mvc.getData("MyListviewKey");

    if (data.getValue().length == 0)


    navigateForward("MyListviewDetailsScreen", data.getValue()[0].getKey());

    return false;



    return true;

    I haven't tested this, but the principle should be sound.
