This code shows all images (photos) in your phone and then uses the file location to create the image and display it to the user.

It is a modification of an example widget that has since been removed from the Web Developer's library (see article history for original URL).

The change I did was to the common.js file for showObject (obviously the change I did will only work if the file is an image so do not use this modified version with any other media type). Basically I take the location of the image on the D: or E: drive and in Javascript create an image and associate its src with the file location. It then displays to the user.


// Build the message by reading a JS object in a recursive manner
function showObject( obj )
var txt = "";
try {
if ( typeof obj != 'object' )
return "" + obj + '<BR/>';
else {
for(var key in obj) {
if (key=='FileNameAndPath') {
var img = new Image();
txt += "<img src='"+img.src+"' border='0' /><br/>";
txt += key + ":";
txt += showObject( obj[key] );
txt += '<BR/>';
txt += '<BR/>';
catch (e)
alert("showObject: " + e);
return txt;
