Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13261) If taking a photo using a file picker, iOS won't return to the web view
Date Fri, 22 Sep 2017 11:33:02 GMT


Tom Brückner commented on CB-13261:

Thanks for the info, great to hear that!

MeteorJS already has updated the plugin to 2.2.3 in the most recent Meteor release 1.5.2.
Can't use this one, though, as this release introduced another major bug. So I'll have to
wait until they get that one fixed. Updating one of the default Cordova plugins directly is
not possible in Meteor, as it hard-depends on specific Cordova plugin versions.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: cordova-ios
>    Affects Versions: 4.3.0
>         Environment: iOS 11
>            Reporter: Tom Brückner

> In my iOS app, I am using a file input to get hold of the content of an image file:
> <input class="file-uploader" type="file">
> If the user clicks on this input dialog, iOS 11 prompts to either take a photo, select
a photo from the library, or select another file using the file selector.
> This works fine if I select a photo from the library. However, if I choose to take a
photo using the camera, the app shows a full white screen after the camera returns. The photo
is returned correctly to the app code, but the view doesn't switch back to the web view, so
the app is not visible any more.
> This worked on previous versions of iOS. I'm not sure when this degradation actually
took place, since none of my users complained about this and I wasn't testing this specific
case for quite a long time.
> (Tested on iOS beta 10. It doesn't matter if the app was built with Xcode 8.3.3 or Xcode
9.0 beta 6. Not even sure if it is related to the beta version of iOS, as I don't have another
device with an older iOS version here.)
