Re: Image load from filesystem

You hardcoded the path to D:  Presumably this file is not in that location on the simulator or the device.


See the documentation in https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__cascades__image.html for setting this relative or using your assets.


Image inherits from Resource, so has isNull().  QUrl has both isValid() and isEmpty().

You should add some defensive code.
