Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2627) HTML File Input should support accept/source attributes
Date Sun, 09 Apr 2017 07:52:42 GMT


Niklas Merz commented on CB-2627:

My solution works somehow so far. But right now I doubt this is really useful in Android core.
I am the same opinion as [~bowserj], that this is very fragile. Personally I would prefer
this to be solved in InAppBrowser. The InAppBrowser always opens the file picker for input
file elements. I would like the InAppBrowser plugin behave more like Chrome.

File uploads in a Cordova app can be done with plugins.

>            Priority: Minor
> [CB-2086] always opens a generic File Picker, regardless of the values passed in for
the mimetypes in the accept attribute, or the source attribute.  The Android Browser correctly
examines these attributes and starts up an activity with either: a camera intent, a camera/image
intent, a camcorder intent, a sound recorder intent, or a sound recorder/audio intent.  
> I'm not sure what cross-pollination is allowed between the Android codebase and Cordova's,
but it appears that packages/apps/Browser/src/com/android/browser/ from
the Android source tree contains exactly what we need to accomplish the same.
