Can't disable camera control on app



The camera control is visible based on a button click. That works fine. When I hide the camera it disables it. unfortunately, when the app starts, the camera control takes control of the computer camera while its still not visible. I have tried to set values to false at startup but nothing works.


I have two camera controls, one on each screen acting the same way. Navigating between screens the camera control takes control of the computer camera while still being visible.


Camera control visible true/false






I'm also using this to disable the camera. The camera control still want to activate while not visible at start of app.

If(CameraOption, DisplayMode.Edit, DisplayMode.Disabled)


Thanks in advance.

@Ramole I'm doing that exact same thing. Not sure if this is a bug or not. The variable works fine when executing it by clicking the button but for some reason the camera is activated when opening the app even though the camera control is not visible.
