Max Image File Size


I am very new to BB development, but excited about it.

I am using the webworks api on a 9800 Torch simulator (i dont own a BB yet).


I am using a web service and getting dynamically generated images and it seems that once I send back a high resolution image that app seems to not accept that image into an <img> tag. If the image is smaller in file size it works fine..


Is there a limit on what size of image it can load?

Re: Max Image File Size

I am new to the Torch, so I cannot answer your question directly, but the media card is formatted with FAT32 so there is the file size limit associated with that file system. I assume the main memory also uses FAT32.


Of course that limit is very large. What is the file size you are attempting to create? Or, asking another way, what is the largest file size you have been able to create?
