PowerApps AddPicture Control to Sharepoint Picture Library?

Hello,

I have an app that uses a Camera Control-to-Flow to upload photos to a Sharepoint Picture Library. Works just fine. Unfortunately, the Flow (which uses dataUriToBinary expression) fails when uploading a photo using the AddPicture Control.

 

Is there a simple way to leverage the AddPicture Control and Flow to move a photo to a Sharepoint Picture Library?


Thank you

Hi @ericonline , 

 

Please refer to the screenshot of the flow. Assuming that you already created the powerapp and the button control triggers the flow. 

 

Expression on the button 

'PowerAppsbutton-2'.Run("TestYash.jpeg",Camera2.Photo)

Here, PowerAppsbutton-2 is the name of my Flow, TestYash.jpeg is the file name I am requesting to powerapps from flow, Camera2 is the camera control and Camera2.Photo is the blob I am sending from powerapps to Flow. MicrosoftTeams-image (55).png

Expression in compose:

dataUriToBinary(triggerBody()['Initializevariable_Value'])

Hope this Helps!

Hello @yashag2255. Thank you for the reply.
I already have a Flow which utilized the Camera control. I need a Flow that utilized the AddPicture control (Insert/Media/Add Picture).
