Activity Starter: how to interact with the external application?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to learn the use of the Activity Starter to make a camera app. Currently, I can launch the built-in camera app of the phone by means of Activity Starter.

Now, I need to get the full path (directory+filename+extension) of the resulting photo taken by the camera app. How could I do this? How could I "pick up" the path from the built-in app?

Thank you very much for your answers, kind regards.

The usual place is:


Check where the picture goes when you just use the camera app...

Sorry, my question was badly asked. I meant the full path, so directory+filename+extension.

This is because I would pick up the picture for other operations.

See if activityResult returns the path...

It doesn't.

You may as well use the Camera component:


Thank you very much for your effort! You are very kind. However, I already know this method, I was looking for something different. My main goal is to use built-in camera to have all its features.

Unfortunately, as you said, it seems it is not possible to use the built-in camera and then pick up data from it.
