BB10 Testing camera

I'm building an app and I want to provide the user with the option of taking a picture and displaying it on a <img> element.


I'm using the documentation function takePicture() and suppose everything will be fine. But how do I test it??
In Ripple it simply says "blackberry.media.camera object is undefined." and in the Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator, nothing happens.


Fiddle here


How do I test my app?

Re: BB10 Testing camera

your code is incorrect - here is an example


basically you can use
<input id="picture" type="file" accept="image/*" capture="camera" style="display:none;">

Re: BB10 Testing camera

Ok, thanks! I got it to work.


Since I don't have a BB device with me, in this example, when you take a picture, the file gets saved and THEN shown on screen? If so, how do I get the file path?


Thank you
