When copying photo in DCIM/subfolder and trying to update the gallery using @Taifun Tools extension; my photo is not shown in Phone Gallery.
I followed @Anke instructions in: Camera & timer & save - #42 by Program_maker but did not succeed.
The photo is properly copied:
and I also see it when connecting my phone to my PC and browsing the folder:
The Gallery is updated only if I reboot my phone
Try to use a timer (100 or 200ms) for the
Using a timer does not help, I still havethe sale issue:
Where does the
Text_Image.jpg come from. If this is a picture taken with the Camera, when was it taken?
I checked it (
.GalleryRefresh method) on several test devices (Android 5-13) some time ago. It worked fine on all of them.
Test_Image is a photo taken using ProCamera
Here is my aia Test Application:
Test_Camera_Save.aia (136.3 KB)
The files are very large... around 12MB... did you try a larger timer interval for the clock?
You MUST use an absolute path for @Taifun's
.GalleryRefresh method !
(not a relative and also not a full path):
I have pointed this out on occasion in the past.
Using absolute path fixes the problem
Thank you very much
@Taifun Would be good to add that absolute path is required in the documentation: App Inventor Extensions: Tools | Pura Vida Apps
I told him exactly this via PM.
So close this topic by clicking on Solution.
Great, that it worked for you
Will update the documentation soon...
I now set this thread as solved
