Hello, is there a simple way to emulate a getfileopenname on a mobile application? in particular i would like to show a system dialog box to let the user select a local image file (for example a screenshot) and get in return the path where it is located.

just in case someone else need it this is how i solved this case:

found out the useful "of_openalbums" method of the object eon_mobile_cameraex which opens a dialog to let the user select a local image of the android device and returns the full path

eon_mobile_cameraex  leon_camera        
leon_camera = create eon_mobile_cameraex
eon_camera.of_openalbums( is_fullname )
destroy leon_camera

Hi Simone;

   Unfortunately at this time, PowerServer Mobile and thus AWS, do not support mobile App "file" functionality like you have in native PB Apps.

  The only way I know of at the moment to achieve this would be to use a Cordova plug-in (which PS does support). For example:


  Note that this Cordova plug-in example above is not built-in to AWS, so you would need to use the "Solution 2" approach as described in your PS Help (just search on the keyword "Cordova").


Regards ... Chris
