    With Kendo UI and the upload control, can one have the app allow the user to take a picture from their phone's camera and upload it?

    Thanks

    Hello Martin,

     
    Currently this is not possible. As far as I know, HTML5 doesn't support camera access yet. There are some solutions in the Net, but they use Flash. Of course, if there is a native support for that in the future, we will add this feature as well.

    Hi,

    Further investigation showed that the built-in "Take Photo" dialog on iOS does not appear with the default Upload configuration.
    In order to enable it you need to set the multiple option to false:

        $("#upload").kendoUpload({ multiple: false });

    I hope this helps.

    Do you by any chance know if this is an iOS only issue?

    Hello Morten,


    Indeed the discussed issue is iOS only specific.

    How has this changed?  On an Android device with Chrome, the control shows "Camera, Camcorder, Documents".  On an iPad with Safari, the control shows "Take Photo or Video, Photo Library, iCloud Drive".  However on Windows 10 devices, the control only opens the Windows Explorer and provides no option for Camera, whether in Edge, IE, or Chrome.

    Is this being addressed?

    Hello Keith,

    I have performed some local tests on Windows 10 devices, but it seems that the Camera and the rest of the options for Windows are correctly prompted, when a click on the Upload widget is performed. The Edge version is: 25.10586.107.0 and the tests were performed on our online demos:

    http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/upload/index

    Could you test the behavior with our online demos and let us know the behavior at your end?
