    navigator.camera.getPicture doens't work

    piero.alberto Level 1

      I'm using phonegap with DevExtreme and I'd like to use the phone camera.


      I searched for the code I need and I'm trying this:



          function capturePhoto() {
              navigator.camera.getPicture(onPhotoDataSuccess, onFail, {
                  quality: 50,
                  destinationType: navigator.camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,


          function onPhotoDataSuccess(imageData) {
              var smallImage = document.getElementById('smallImage');
              smallImage.style.display = 'block';
              smallImage.src = "data:image/jpeg;base64," + imageData;
              image = "data:image/jpeg;base64," + imageData;
              alert("Image = " + image);
          function onFail(message) {
              alert('Failed because: ' + message);


      The alert("1") in the capturePhoto function is showed, but after this nothing happens.


      I don't know if I'm missing something, but the code seems correct. I'm trying it on a real Android device. Further, I don't know if onSuccess is correct. For example, I can't understand why there is document.getElementById('smallImage'). What's wrong with my code? DevExtreme support tells on their side is all correct.


      This is my config.xml:
