An example of Cordova's Camera PopoverOptions by Raymond Camden | 23 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network One of the interesting features in Cordova's Camera API is something called popoverOptions. While the docs do explain what this feature does, it may not be entirely clear how it works so I whipped up a quick example, with screen shots, to demonstrate what it does. First off - this feature is only for iOS (and the iPad at that) and only for existing pictures, it is not something you can use when having the user take new pictures. So right away you can see this is something that will have... Visit Raymond's Blog

PhoneGap Day US and EU Announced by Raymond Camden | 22 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network For a few years now the PhoneGap team have been running a one day conference called PhoneGap Day. This is easily one of my favorite conferences. It has a very laid back vibe. The sessions are short and sweet (20 minutes or so a pop). The schwag is actually useful. Out of all the conferences I attend, this one just feels the most relaxed, fun, and educational as well. This year PhoneGap Day will be held in San Francisco on October 24th and Berlin on September 26th. As before, there will be... Visit Raymond's Blog
Mixing Cordova/PhoneGap Components with Native iOS – Part 1 by Holly Schinsky | 22 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network I built this tutorial to serve as a guide to creating a hybrid mobile application combining both native iOS controls and Cordova/PhoneGap components to leverage the best of both worlds as an alternative to picking one over the other. Developers may choose to do this if they want to use specific native UI features but […] Visit Holly's Blog

Targeting a device type with Cordova Emulate by Raymond Camden | 21 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network Today I've got yet another Cordova tip that was probably known to most people. I'm working on a sample application that needs to run on an iPad, not an iPhone, but the problem was that every time I ran cordova emulate ios, it would fire up the application in an iPhone. If I switched the hardware in the iOS simulator settings it would work, but when I recompiled and reran, it reverted to an iPhone. Turns out, there is a simple solution for this. I had never noticed this, but cordova emulate... Visit Raymond's Blog

Cordova Sample: Reading a text file by Raymond Camden | 15 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network A few weeks back I began a list of questions to help build a PhoneGap/Cordova File System FAQ. (More on that at the very end.) As I work through the questions I'm building little samples (like this one) to help demonstrate various FileSystem features. Today's is really simple, but as always, I figure people can find this helpful even if it trivial. (And if I'm wrong, let me know in the comments below.) Today's example simply reads a text-based file from the file system and displays it in the... Visit Raymond's Blog
