Using the camera

The BlackBerry 10 Device Simulator supports the Camera functionality. You can load images from your computer into the view finder, and then edit and save them just like you can when you take pictures on a device. If your app supports scanning for QR codes or barcodes, you can create the codes in the Controller, and upload them to the camera to simulate scanning.
