I am trying to get images from an emulator. when I try take image using an emulator i get the following error.
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'getPicture' of undefined at file:///android_asset/www/index.html:67
When I try to get image from a photolibrary i get the following error
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'PHOTOLIBRARY' of undefined at file:///android_asset/www/index.html:97
To read image from PHOTOLIBRARY do we need a FOLDER named PHOTOLIBRARY in the SD Card.
Also can we take a dummy picture using the emulators in built camera? Or do we need a webcam connected.
I am a bit confused and running on a deadline.
Could someone help me figure this out please.
Thanks....

Hi !

Your written code looks like JavaScript nested in HTML. Maybe I'm wrong, but you write in wrong place.

When you post your code, put it in code tag, it will be easier to understand it.

Bye!

As far as I know, the emulator doesn't have a camera, so you cannot use it to test camera functions - you'll need a real Android device that has a camera.

Based on your code, I assume that you are running this HTML page via a browser in the emulator/device, or are you using some framework that lets you write javascript apps for Android? It sure doesn't look like code that you would write for the standard Android SDK.
