Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-753) ER: API to query if device has a camera
Date Fri, 11 May 2012 03:20:01 GMT
Jean-Pierre created CB-753:

             Summary: ER: API to query if device has a camera
                 Key: CB-753
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 1.7.0
            Reporter: Jean-Pierre

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, 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.
