Camera control problem

Hi, I have a question regarding the Camera control. I don't know how to run it again when changing screens. When I enter for the first time, it works, when the next one is not 😞

Hi @Mjetek404 ,

Have you tested this on your PC? If it works there the issue is your device. We take tens of thousands of photos on over 100 iPads and the camera always works when the screen is entered, whether the first or any subsequent time. Unfortunately there is no Reset property or ability on this control type. One thing to check may be if the camera is being used by something else on the device.

Hi @WarrenBelz, we only use android devices in my organization and that's probably the problem. I tested the application for the iPad a while ago and it works as it should. I wonder why this inconvenience is only for android.

You just need to give an extra interrupt for the camera to start working. Consider this termination in code form. Do you have any idea for that?

Hi @Mjetek404 ,


With my organization tablet (Android version 11 ; ONE UI version 3.1)  I have the same problem as you but at the opposite with my personal phone (Android version 10 ; ONE UI version 2.0) it works as well.


Maybe we should change our android version of our device ?

Hi @Mjetek404 ,

I only have one Android device (a Motorola Moto G8+ phone) to test and the camera works fine on that with an app using it.
