Re: Accessing directories and files .

Do all of your pages exist under the same domain?  If not, you will need to make sure they as well as the blackberry.io.dir feature are properly whitelisted in config.xml.


Can you see any runtime errors in Web Inspector when you try to access the file system on pages other than index.htm?


To confirm - you should certainly be allowed to use this API from any *.html file in your project (e.g. KitchenSink sample app has a Directory API and File API demo page)
