FlashControl - another great adventure...



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...

Re: FlashControl - another great adventure...

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.

---Spends time in #blackberrydev on freenode (IRC)----
Three simple rules:
1. Please use the search bar before making new posts.
2. "Like" posts that you find helpful.
3. If a solution has been found for your post, mark it as solved.
