Notice (2018-05-24): bugzilla.xamarin.com is now in
Please join us on
Visual Studio Developer Community and in the
Mono organizations on
GitHub to continue tracking issues. Bugzilla will remain
available for reference in read-only mode. We will continue to work
on open Bugzilla bugs, copy them to the new locations
as needed for follow-up, and add the new items under Related
Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
1. launch the media picker sample
2. make sure you are in portrait mode
3. tap the Take Photo button
4. rotate the screen to take a landscape photo
5. tap "Done" or "Accept" (still in landscape mode)
6. stay in landscape mode
7. notice the camera is launched again
8. tap the back button
9. notice no image is displayed
A few things to note:
* if you start in landscape mode and stay in landscape mode, the camera is not launched again, returns normally, and displays the image
* if you start in portrait mode and stay in portrait mode the entire time (even to tap "Done" or "Accept"), the camera is not launched again, returns normally, and displays the image
* if you follow the above reproduction steps, the first photo taken is saved at the original filename - however, the returned task.Result.Path is the original filename with "_1" appended before the ".jpg" extension - if you take another photo, you end up with two photos on the file system - if you don't take another photo as in the above reproduction steps, the returned task.Result.Path points to an empty file (the "_1" appended filename), but the first photo taken (with the unchanged original filename) is on the file system
Do we have an idea when this might get fixed? We would like to do a release of our app soon, but it relies on camera functionality. The current behavior "works" fundamentally, but it would be much preferred to have a more professional, polished experience for the user before releasing.
This has been fixed and the available .zip has been updated ( http://xamarin.com/mobileapi )
The fix seems to work great. Thank you!
