FlashControl - another great adventure...

Ok,

 

What's the great secret with FlashControl?

 

I simply want to turn on and off the Flash at will...you would think this would be easy considering the API is straight forward...but I have a Storm2 and so far - no flash...

 

setMode to Force works...

isFlashReady says yes

getMode==Force says true

 

No flash....

 

Anybody have a working example of this?

 

Anybody know why this simple API would not be working?

 

Any help, suggestions (or sympathy) - is appreciated...thanks in advance...

Never tried it. I don't know what the rules are with JSRs but I think you need to have the whole JSR exposed but don't need to implement it.
