common code to check whether phone supports video camera or not?

Hello,

i'm using BlackBerry JDE 4.2.1 .

i want to write a common piece of code in try-catch to check whether the phone supports video camera or not..

catch block will show a pop-up message if video-camera is not supported.

 

problem is that, i cannot use ARG_VIDEO_RECORDER since compiler gives an error of 'not found' .

so is there any way to check facility video recording in phones >= 4.2.1 OS?

Re: common code to check whether phone supports video camera or not?

hi, in the BB API there is a  DeviceInfo class which has hasCamera() method. take a look at it:

 

net.rim.device.api.system
Class DeviceInfo

 

 

hasCamera
public static boolean hasCamera()
Determines if this device has a camera Returns: True if this device has a camera Since: JDE 4.2.0

Re: common code to check whether phone supports video camera or not?

i tried DeviceInfo.hasCamera().

it gives true if camera is supported even though Video capturing is not supported.

 

but i want to specifically check if Video Camera is supported or not..

any solution for it?
