Using ActionSheet open the <input type='file'/>

I am developing an chat application using SignalR and Web Api. In this chat app I was trying to send the Images from
photo gallery and Camara from IonicActionSheet. I know that $cordovaDevice, $cordovaFile plugin are available.

my question is that Can I use <input type='file'/> in $ionicActionSheet so that I can transfer the bytes of file to our web api.

Or any other way to implement such fuctionality

Is any kind of reply by some one

hey there --> no need for type file.

You can create a Form in your Javascript:

var form = new FormFata();

form.append("NAME", FILE_PATH);

after that you need the cordova-file-transfer plugin and send your formdata to your backend.

thanks for reply.

  self.addMedia = function (type) {
        self.addImage = function (type) {

            self.saveMedia(type).then(function () {
   self.optionsForType = function (type) {
        var source;
        switch (type) {
            case 0:
                source = Camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA;
            case 1:
                source = Camera.PictureSourceType.PHOTOLIBRARY;
        return {
            quality: 90,
            destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.DATA_URL,
            sourceType: source,
            allowEdit: false,
            encodingType: Camera.EncodingType.JPEG,
            popoverOptions: CameraPopoverOptions,
            saveToPhotoAlbum: false,
            correctOrientation: true
 self.saveMedia = function (type) {
            return $q(function (resolve, reject) {
                var options = self.optionsForType(type);

                $cordovaCamera.getPicture(options).then(function (imageBase64) {
var images=[];
self.addImages = function (files) {
            var formdata = new FormData();
            for (var i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
                formdata.append("file" + i, files[i]);
                $scope.FileName = $scope.files[i].name;

here I am not getting the file in addImages() so that I can transfer it to back end.

any reply for this???
