The Camera widget enables PhoneGap native camera functionality within your Mendix mobile application.
This widget functions on the latest versions of both iOS and Android. Windows Phone is not supported.
Support for offline profiles was introduced in version 3.0 of the widget. The functionality is the same in the new offline profile, with the exception that on-save microflows and the Autosave setting will trigger an error in the client when enabled.
Place the widget in a data view where you want the button to be placed. Make sure this form is reachable from a mobile application.
4.1 Image Container Class

This is an optional microflow that will be triggered when the object is saved.
4.8 On Save Nanoflow
This is an optional nanoflow that will be triggered when the object is saved.
This is an optional setting to autosave an image to the context object. Use the on-save microflow to commit the object and run further actions.
4.10 Picture Source
Setting this determines where the image will come from: the gallery or the camera.
4.11 Image Quality

This is the width in pixels to scale the image. This must be used with the
targetHeight. The aspect ratio remains constant.
