Camera plugin in iOS (DevAPP)


#1

Hi! I’ve been developing an app in Ionic and until now I have tested it just in an Android device. But since yesterday I’ve been testing it in an iOS device thanks to DevApp. It works fine, but the problem comes when I try to take a picture using camera plugin of Ionic Native. I’m able to open the camera and take the picture, but when I click “Use Photo” the app just stops working.

The function below is the one I use to take the picture. In Android it works fine.


    var filename = this.name + " " + this.surname + ".jpg";
    var options = {
      destinationType: this.camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,
      encodingType: this.camera.EncodingType.JPEG,
      mediaType: this.camera.MediaType.PICTURE,
      targetWidth: 900,
      targetHeight: 600,
      correctOrientation: true
    }
    this.camera.getPicture(options).then((imageData) => {
        var new_path;
        alert(imageData);
        if (this.platform.is('android')) {
            new_path = imageData.substring(imageData.indexOf('s'));
        } else {
            new_path = imageData.replace(/^.*[\\\/]/, '');
        }
        alert(new_path);
        alert(imageData);
        this.residency_image = new_path;
        this.authService.uploadImage(this.residency_image, filename);
        this.register();
    }, (err) => {
        this.failedAlert("Internal error", "Error while taking the picture");
    });
  }

I’ve also been searching about this problem and I’ve added the following to config.xml and to MyApp-Info.plist but I still have the problem.

config.xml

<plugin name="cordova-plugin-camera" spec="^4.7.0">
        <variable name="CAMERA_USAGE_DESCRIPTION" value=" " />
        <variable name="PHOTOLIBRARY_USAGE_DESCRIPTION" value=" " />
    </plugin>


<edit-config target="NSCameraUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge">
    <string>need camera access to take pictures</string>
    </edit-config>
    <edit-config target="NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge">
        <string>need photo library access to get pictures from there</string>
    </edit-config>
    <edit-config target="NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge">
        <string>need location access to find things nearby</string>
    </edit-config>
    <edit-config target="NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge">
        <string>need photo library access to save pictures there</string>
    </edit-config>

MyApp-Info.plist

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
    <string>need camera access to take pictures</string>
    <key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
    <string>need photo library access to get pictures from there</string>
    <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
    <string>need location access to find things nearby</string>
    <key>NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription</key>
    <string>need photo library access to save pictures there</string>

Thank you for your help!
