Camera preview in a box

Hello Everyone,

 

I want to have a box on a screen which can show me the live view of a camera, instead of the whole screen going to a camera mode.

 

Is that possible?

 

Regards

Nabeel,

 

when you integrate the barcode scanner, it's similar to 'Add Picture' control, where it uses controls that we can't modify, more like native to the phone or of that nature. So when you 'hit' the scan button it shows you the scanning 'live' video feed and there's nothing (from what I know of) that you can do with that part. Sorry, no positive answer from my experience, maybe someone else will come up with a solution for you. Good luck.

Hello Nabeer,

 

if you use the camera control (vs. the attach picture one), you can resize the control to your liking.

Thanks a lot PowerDriver!

 

But I forgot to mention one more thing, I want the barcode scanner to do the same.

 

Meaning there is a live feed of the bardcode scanner on one box in a screen, and then whenever people scan anything, they can see the actual video feed. Is that possible?
