Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-205) Droid 3 Camera Causes App Restart
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 17:46:10 GMT
Droid 3 Camera Causes App Restart

                 Key: CB-205
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
         Environment: Phonegap Sample App

Droid 3 with current updates (Android 2.3.4)

Native (for droid 3) camera app.
            Reporter: John Reeves

# In the sample app, click the button to take a picture.
# The camera app launches, take a picture, and tap done.
# The sample app reappears but there is no indication that the picture was taken.

I made a simple app to test this, which should simply alert the FILE_URI result, or alert
something on error.  Neither callbacks are hit, instead the app restarts.  If you view the
logcat, it shows a console.log() right before launching the camera, and the next log message
after taking the picture shows a new PID and other logs related to the app starting.

This happens in any app I have tried this with, even the simplest "take a picture and alert
the path" app.  It also happens with alternative camera apps.  I've tried a couple of 3rd
party camera apps with the same outcome.

This might be related - They describe the exact behavior I see, but I tried using their modified
phonegap.jar with no luck.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Capture Image</title>

	<script src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="phonegap-1.3.0.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

    var defaultPictureOptions = {
    		quality : 50,
    		destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,
    		sourceType: Camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA
    		/* ,
    		targetWidth: 100,
    		targetHeight: 100

    	var phonegapPic = function(onSuccess, onFail, photoType) {
    		if (!navigator) { console.log('no navigator obj'); return false; }
    		if (! { console.log('no obj'); return false;  }
    		if (! { console.log('no'); return
false; }

    		photoType = photoType || "camera";

    		console.log('taking picture...');
    		var opts = $.extend({}, defaultPictureOptions, {
    			sourceType: (photoType === "camera") ? Camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA : Camera.PictureSourceType.PHOTOLIBRARY
    		});, onFail, opts);
    		return true;
    	function captureImage()
    		phonegapPic( function( imgURI ){ alert( 'got picture: ' + imgURI ); },
    				function(){ alert( 'error!' )} );
        <button onclick="captureImage();">Capture Image</button> <br>
