Re: Use Camera Control to save pictures to Attachments of SharePoint List

Hi @Donglin ,

You can use the camera control to save to a SharePoint Library and you can attach photos using the attachment control. My users I do both of these in many apps.

I have not used your required process and did some searching and after reviewing, thought I had found what you needed. I cannot find anything else on the subject, however there is still a workaround which I have as a standard process. Simply take a picture with the camera phone, then use the attachment control to attach it.

Re: Use Camera Control to save pictures to Attachments of SharePoint List

Hi @Donglin ,

Here is a good description of the process if you want to use attachments.

I also have a working process to save these to a SharePoint Library -  I posted it here recently.

My users have taken over 20,000 field pictures in the field using this with very little issue - I am happy to explain this further if you require.

Thank you so much. I have read the post, it's creating the photo files stored in SharePoint library, would you please advise how to store the photo in the Attachments field of a SharePoint list?

Sorry, I got confused, I haven't gotten idea how to make it since I didn't find the exact example from the links.
I use the Attachments control to upload pictures to the attachments field of SharePoint list called PartItem, but sometimes I would like to take pictures by Camera control and save to the same field. Would you please advise how to do? Thank you.

Wonderful, with the Attachments control can also take the phone directly when use it on mobile phone. It is exactly what I need.
If it can resize picture size, it would be perfect.
Thank you.

Hi @Donglin ,

Yes, I remember that now about the mobile - a while since I have used apps on a mobile device taking a picture.

File size is often an issue with weak data signal.
