Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

I am not sure how exactly the Add Picture control works exactly, because on my phone when I choose to add picture I am given 2 choices camera or file, I choose camera take picture press save (actual a check mark) and camera just closes and dosen't add picture to the Image control, I press add picture again on the phone app this time I choose file and the picture I just took is not in the list of pictures and I am assuming this is not how the add picture control is supposed to work.

Any help very much appreciated.

FYI - Testing this out with the app from Todd Baginski's Blog

Re: Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

Clarification--are you using Todd's copy of his app? I'd recommend creating a blank app, adding the add picture control and trying that. Let me know if it's any different.

Re: Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

Hi @JackDog ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

The version of my iOS device is 12.2, the version of my PowerApps Mobile App is 3.19044.13.

 

Please check if the version of your PowerApps Mobile App in your mobile device is the latest version, if not, please consider upgrade it to the latest version, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.

 

Also please make sure that your Android device meets the system requirements to run an app:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/limits-and-config

 

If the issue still exists, please uninsall the PowerApps Mobile App from your Android device, then re-install it, re-create a new app and add a "Add Picture" control within it, check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Hello,

I added just the Add Picture Control and still the same, I can use the file on my phone but camera part will not add picture.

My Camera control works just fine,  Using Android 8.0 Powerapps ver 3.19044.13

FYI - I am using internal SD card for pictures, other than that I don't know what is going on.

Re: Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

Any solution to this one yet?

 

We have exactly the same problem with Huawei and Honor. We have several users using the same canvas app. iPhones and OnePlus devices work fine, but at least part of Huawei and Honor devices do not capture the image. Even some Huawei device, which did work before, is not working with new version of the application.

 

They still can use Add Picture Control to add image from device gallery, but not directly from the camera. Camera control appears and accepts to take/save photo, but Add Picture Control image stays blank.

 

I tested this with new blank app, where is nothing else but this add picture control and still the same result.

And yes, i did update PowerApps for mobile and latest Android for Huawei. I even tested with a phone never used with PowerApps before and same result.

Re: Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

I tested same apps in Chrome, and they do work. Something wrong with PowerApps mobile for Android now.

Chrome is not acceptable solution for us, we need to stick in PA mobile.

Re: Add Picture Control not working on Moto G6

I tested this scenario on a Nexus 6P device (manufactored by Huawei) and it worked fine.  The device is running Android 8.1.  Can you please provide the exact make, model and Android version of all the devices that have this problem?  Thanks.
