Dialog throws NULL exception

[ Edited ]
function promptEditSave(){
	try {
		blackberry.ui.dialog.standardAskAsync("Continue without saving?", blackberry.ui.dialog.D_SAVE, editSavePromptCallBack(), {title : "Save changes?", size: blackberry.ui.dialog.SIZE_MEDIUM, position : blackberry.ui.dialog.CENTER});
	}catch (e) {
		alert("Exception in: " + e);

For some reason everytime I call promptEditSave(); I get this error from the try/catch: "Exception in: null"


Now ripple isnt throwing any errors however when testing on a 9700 OS6 device the error is thrown...


What am I not doing right?

Re: Dialog throws NULL exception

Hi there, the only thing that seems to stand-out to me is where you're setting your callback.  Can you remove the '()' and make it look like this:


... ("Continue without saving?", blackberry.ui.dialog.D_SAVE, editSavePromptCallBack, {title : "Save changes?" ...
