Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1215) Select multiple photos from photo album using camera.getPicture()

Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-1215:
--------------------------------------

For iOS, we can't do  it with UIImagePickerController (which the core Camera plugin uses)
- it is single selection only. We would have to "roll our own" using ALAssetsLibrary: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#DOCUMENTATION/AssetsLibrary/Reference/ALAssetsLibrary_Class/Reference/Reference.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40009722

I suppose someone can create a plugin: http://www.icodeblog.com/2010/10/07/cloning-uiimagepickercontroller-using-the-assets-library-framework/

> I've been using camera.getPicture() to select a photo from the user's phone gallery and
it works great when all I want is to select one photo.  But several of my users have requested
the ability to select multiple photos in a single selection.  I've seen other apps show a
photo picker that allows the user to select multiple photos by clicking on them and then it
adds a check mark next to each one and selects all of the photos that the user checked.
> As far as I can tell, this functionality doesn't currently exist but Simon MacDonald
told me to submit an enhancement ticket because the functionality is possible but just hasn't
been implemented.
