Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-753) ER: API to query if device has a camera
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2012 16:34:12 GMT

Jonathan Bond-Caron commented on CB-753:
----------------------------------------

Agree that it would be nice for Cordova to fill this 'gap', native platforms allow to check
this:

negap
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12976725/checking-for-camera-access-in-ph
onegap?lq=1


If could likely be added int two ways:
- navigator.camera.isAvailable()
- device.hasFeature('camera');

> Cordova does not offer any API to query the device for its capabilities, so one cannot
know if it has a camera with which to take a picture without attempting to take a picture,
falling through the error handler and then hard-match the error code -- a pretty poor user
experience. i have seen some suggestion to check device.camera, but a device may still have
a library to pull an image from while not having a camera, so that isn't likely helpful. there
isn't even any way to find the specific hardware revision to match off that.
