Photo Selection

What's the best way to bring up a screen that displays pictures from the file system and allows the user to select one (or snap a new one with a Camera)?  I've seen this in apps, but I'm not sure if it was developed using low-level API's (file IO, image scaling, etc), or if there is a higher-level way to magically open a File Browser and get back the user selection.

 

thanks

Re: Photo Selection

For example, I see the same photo upload in the Flickr and Facebook BB apps - is that a common component?

Re: Photo Selection

Use FileConnections API (is available since RIM OS 4.2/JDE 4.2)
