Camera Control Not Working

I am building a Canvas app. One of the features of this app is taking photos. I followed guidance from the Microsoft documentation as well as posts I have found here.  Nothing is working.


I drop the Camera control on the screen. It loads and shows the camera view, no problem.  I drop an image control on the screen and set its Image property to The Photo property of the camera control. I click the Camera control, nothing happens. The OnSelect() for the Camera control is not called at all, it does nothing. I tried adding a Notify() to the OnSelect() nothing.  I then tried adding a "Shutter" button that calls Select( Camera Control ). The OnSelect for the Camera Control now is called, but still does nothing.

I tried another suggestion, setting StreamRate to 100 and then setting the Image control to the Stream Property of the camera control, still nothing. I also tried setting up a Gallery with an Image control and calling Collect( var, Camera.Photo ), that doesn't work either.


How do I get this to work? Am I missing a step here?




UPDATE: I shared the app with another user. The app works perfectly for them. Just not for me.  Going to try clearing my browser cache.
