Additional files and images to text

Good day dear app inventor community . I want to make a text box just like WhatsApp in which you can upload images , files , contacts and all that . I was wondering how that can be done and looking for tutorial linking to what I need .

Is there a file picker or chooser on app inventor ??

you can find file manager extensions in the extensions directory App Inventor Extensions | Pura Vida Apps
alternatively use the activity starter to pick a file, see for example App Inventor Tutorials and Examples: Pick a file | Pura Vida Apps

Thank you so much Taifun, this will surely be of help to me . Another thing I will like to inquire is that after computing the codes to pick image , audio or a document , I will like for it to show in the text box just like WhatsApp does , how is that possible, I will really appreciate suggestions.

Pls I will appreciate a response to my previous question

Another question I will like to ask is that how can I connect the image picker to the text box

there is no need to remind people to get answers... please be patient... thank you...

use the response from one of the extensions or the activity starter and display it in the textbox... just try something, it is really easy... and if you get stuck, post a screenshot of your relevant blocks...

please elaborate.... and for completely new questions please always start a new thread. thank you.

A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.
There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:
How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

Also do the tutorials Our Tutorials! to learn the basics of App Inventor, then try something and follow the Top 5 Tips: How to learn App Inventor
