Take photo issue

Is anyone having or had issues when taking a photo within an app?


I have been doing some app testing and when taking a photo the app crashes and returns to Power Apps however when attaching a photo already taken it doesn't crash.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi @Kmayes ,

Are you referring to the Camera control? If so, what have you got in the OnSelect of this control and can you see the live "stream" on the screen before you select it?


Sorry for the late reply!


In the app i have a form which has attachment field when you click 'Attach File' it gives you the option to upload a file or take a photo, when selecting take a photo it crashes, why would it do this surely if this wasn't an option it shouldn't give the option?



OK Thanks @Kmayes ,

I assume this is on a mobile device - iPhone or Android?

I am not sure I can help you as this function works fine for our users on iPhones and iPads.



Yes both devices being used are an android and a tablet 


Im not sure what the issue is 😞

Hi @Kmayes ,

I just took a photo on my Android phone and attached it to a SharePoint list using the process you describe and it worked perfectly.

To test this, create a new app based on the list and see if it works.

Any fix on this one in the end? I have the same issue. It appears to be a form corruption type issue. Other forms are fine.
