Would be nice to have a control for adding fotos.
This in many situations. I.e Cardamage, Inpection, Patients, Insurrance compagnies etc..
And making a fotos of a document to upload to the office.
Regards, Bert

Oh yes! We are missing that one too - it is on our hot list - we intend to actually extend the existing image control with a possibility to acquire an image.

What did you mean with "And making a fotos of a document to upload to the office."?

Fotos of a document uploaden to the office:
When it is embedded in altova-mobile-together app there is the option to fill in metadata (time, place, documenttype etc) togehter with the foto (in this case a document) and submit it to the database on the server. So now its avaible for the secretary in the office, when she has access to that with an other desktop application. Ok it better to scan and make a pdf from the fysical document and send the pdf (by email or another app.)But in mobile situations there is not always a scanner.
For example you are transporter and delivered the goods and not comming to the office in a week or more. You can make a foto of the delivery document directly after delivery. This is enough to make the bill already. When the driver is back in the office after i.e 2 weeks he hands over the originals. But in the meantime the invoice has been sent....

Wooh long text, but there are many of this situations.
Hope you understand, Bert

Thanks for taking time to explain! Yes - everything is clear now.

I was asking just to find out whether any other feature is missing to get your job done - nothing. As soon as we add support for uploading pictures, the rest can be done with current means very easily.

This feature has been added starting with v1.3

  • There is a new action "Let User Choose Image from Gallery/Camera". You can then save this image on your server in a database or a file
  • There is a new action "Save Image to File" (to save images in files on server)
  • Images can now be embedded in design, which allows to create standalone designs with images
  • You can extract EXIF information from JPEG images with the new XPath function "image-exif-data"
  • You can resize and/or rotate image with thew new XPath function "mt-transform-image"
