how to save a captured image from camera to a specific folder?

[ Edited ]


i am having problem saving captured image to a specific folder.

my config file:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
  <content src="index.html"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.media.camera" />
  <icon src="icon.png"/>
  <access subdomains="true" uri="file://pictures"/>

 my js code:

works when "Take Video" button clicked
function takeVideo() {
    var result = blackberry.media.camera.takeVideo(onVideoCaptured, onCameraClosed, onError);

works when "Take Photo" button clicked
function takePicture() {
    var result = blackberry.media.camera.takePicture(onPhotoCaptured, onCameraClosed, onError);

post processing of photo click event
function onPhotoCaptured(filePath) {
    var img = new Image();
    img.src="file://" + filePath
    img.width = Math.round(screen.width / 2);


post processing of video click event
function onVideoCaptured(filePath) {
    var video = document.createElement('video');
    video.src="file://" + filePath
    video.controls = "controls";
    video.width = Math.round(screen.width / 2);


function onCameraClosed(closedEvent) {
    alert("onCameraClosed: " + closedEvent);

function onError(errorEvent) {
    alert("onError: " + errorEvent);

 my application hangs in simulator when i click to capture after opening camera..


note: i have a web cam installed which i am used in sumulator. it opened successfully. but simulator hangs after capturing photo.


please help


Thank you
