Using CHDK Commands and Operation for Hot Shoe Flash

Hi,

I am trying to manually control Flash when my camera(SX50) is equipped with Hot Shoe. External Flash is triggered when i set camera mode to AUTO, C1 and C2. But I want to set mode to manual (or any other) and trigger the flash. I am trying following commands to set flash on/off:


props=require("propcase")
set_prop(props.FLASH_MODE, 1) // for flash on
set_prop(props.FLASH_MODE, 2) // for flash off



The value 143(Flash ON/OFF) on the propertyCase correspondingly changes to 1 or 2 as it should be. but no flash triggered except when im in AUTO, C1 or C2. Also in these modes, flash always triggers whether flash is turned on or off using propcase. Help needed  :)

problem is quite changed now dont know why its behaviour is so random. When Hot Shoe Remote is placed on camera, chdk overrides(aperture value and shutter speeds) are ignored except in those modes where flash does not work(like highspeed burst and video). answer plz
