Hi @ParimalPatil,

Do you want to open Primary camera of your device in fullscreen mode when using Camera control?

If you want to open Primary camera of your device in fullscreen mode when using Camera control, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to make your Camera's Height and Width fit your PowerApps app's screen. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Height property of the Camera control to following:

Parent.Height

Set the Width property of the Camera control to following:

Parent.Width

 

In addition, I also agree with @gautmish's thought almost. You could consider take a try to add a Add Picture control within your app instead of Camera control.1.JPG

When you click the "Add picture" control within your app, it would prompt you that how to choose a photo file. You would have three options -- Take Photo, Photo Libray and Browse:WeChat Image_20190109101248.jpgYou could choose "Take Photo" option as above to choose/capture a photo using the nature Camera of your device.

hi there,

 

i'm digging up this topic, because i can't manage to expand my camera control.

i put an icon and set the on select property to 

And(Camera1.Width=Parent.Width;Camera1.Height=Parent.Height;Camera1.X=50;Camera1.Y=850)

no success

i tried with 

Camera1.Width=Parent.Width;Camera1.Height=Parent.Height;Camera1.X=50;Camera1.Y=850

no more success.

 

any help will be welcome
