    When you take a photo it takes you to a confirmation screen with Save and Discard buttons.
    We have our own interface that show the picture with more controls overlaid.
    So at the moment the users have to confirm the picture twice. There is no control with the built in confirmation screen .

    Is it possible to somehow skip the Save/Discard (confirmation screen) screen when taking a photo?

    Thanks,

    Wayne

    Hi Wayne,

    This is the default behavior of the Camera API and currently Apache Cordova does not provide options to override it. You can file an issue into Cordova's Jira so that this gets into their radar.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Stephan, 
    Thanks for your reply.
    So it seems we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. As Cordova won't be providing this feature as they have made it customisable through plugins. But Icenium limits the development of custom plugins. So could this be added to your plugin list, then my next question would be...What would be a time frame if that was at all possible to guess.

    Hi Wayne,

    I kind of understand why Cordova is taking this direction. We cannot commit to a specific time frame when custom plugins support will be available in Icenium. We are currently evaluating all scenarios we want to handle with our "custom plugins support" and your one (modifying a core plugin) is something that we have thought about but not yet considered. Please stay tuned for future updates.


    All the best,

    It has been four years or so and we too would want this override... was there any movement on this or was this discarded?

    Hello Rob,

    I will base my answer on the answer provided by Stefan Dobrev, as I am not sure if you ask about the camera confirmation screen or the support of custom plugins.

    1) Adding custom plugins to your AppBuilder project is now possible. How to achieve this is explained in our documentation.

    2) The camera confirmation screen still cannot be modified. This remains the default behavior of the Cordova Camera plugin. I looked for a different plugin that offers this feature, unfortunately, I did not find any. With this in mind, the only way to create this functionality is by extending the Cordova Camera plugin or by implementing your own Cordova plugin. Both approaches would require extensive knowledge in native mobile development.

    Having said that, currently, we do not plan to create custom implementation of the Core or Verified plugins.
