Open image in default gallery

Here's the code I'm using to open an image taken with the camera with the default gallery:

B4X:
Dim i As Intent
   'i.Initialize(i.ACTION_VIEW, "/mnt/sdcard/DCIM/Camera/IMG_20121027_205219.jpg")
   i.Initialize(i.ACTION_VIEW, "mnt/sdcard/DCIM/Camera/IMG_20121027_205219.jpg")
   Log("mnt/sdcard/DCIM/Camera/IMG_20121027_205219.jpg")
   i.SetType("image/*")
   StartActivity(i)
    Log("error:"&I)

When I click the button, the gallery opens and then just force closes itself. I need to open the image in the gallery viewer so it has the options of the gallery. For example, the default installed gallery usually has the options to share, set as, or delete a photo and that's what I need.

Try this:

Dim ImageChooser As ContentChooser

ImageChooser.Initialize("imgChooser")

ImageChooser.show("image/*", "Choose image")

Sub imgChooser_Result(Success As Boolean, Dir As String, FileName As String)

if Success then
'do whatever
end if

end sub

That does bring up the gallery to choose a image, however, when you choose an image it takes you back to your app. I need to open the image in the gallery viewer so it has the options of the gallery. For example, the default installed gallery usually has the options to share, set as, or delete a photo and that's what I need.

Hmm that is a somewhat decent workaround. I'd like for them to be able to choose the picture so they can see it full sized as well as have the different options.

Sorry if i resume this old post.

I have to choose an image from image gallery, and set it as background of a button.
How can i get the image file name?


Selectedimage = LoadBitmap(File.Dirofchoosedimage,"choosedimagefilename.jpg")

Button1.SetBackgroundImage(Selectedimage)

Hi, may i pass the name of Imageview in this way?


Dim selectedimage As ContentChooser
selectedimage.Initialize("imgChooser")
selectedimage.show("image/*", "Choose image")

Sub selectedimage_Result (Success As Boolean, Dir As String, FileName As String, ControlName As String)
If Success Then
ControlName.Bitmap = LoadBitmap(Dir, FileName)
ControlName.Gravity = Gravity.FILL
Else
ToastMessageShow("Nessuna Immagine Selezionata", True)
End If
End Sub

Do not handle the evente Result

Hi,
why this code

B4X:
Sub Set_Button1_Click    
ImageChooser1.Initialize("imgChooser1")
ImageChooser1.show("image/*", "Choose image")

End Sub

do not handle the result event?

B4X:
Sub imgChooser1_Result(Success As Boolean, Dir As String, FileName As String)
    If Success Then 
   pec1.Bitmap = LoadBitmap(Dir, FileName)    
   pec1.Gravity = Gravity.FILL
    Else 
            ToastMessageShow("Nessuna Immagine Selezionata", True) 
    End If 
   End Sub
