I use the WhatsApp library but now the function OpenChatWithNumber don't work with WhatsApp.

In the unfiltered logs I get this error:
B4X:

I posted this thread with the similar issue with the WhatsApp Business, but now I have the same problem with the regular WhatsApp.

I tried this (modified) code from this thread and the WhatsApp is starteed but not in the specific phone number (I need to select the contact):
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...ges-in-all-social-and-not-apps.99707/#content
B4X:
#If JAVA
import android.content.Intent;

public Intent intnt(String toNumber, String message){
   Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
   i.setType("text/plain");
   i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, message);
   i.setPackage("com.whatsapp");
   return i;
};
#End If
I saw some codes, but working only with the device connected to the internet.
My app uses the function OpenChatWithNumber of WPP Libraty to open the WhatsApp app offline and later send the messages.

Any tips to create a function to open the WhatsApp in the specific number (and optionally share text) are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
