Overview

How can I add the camera view to an application, such as the Insert->New Image option in the Messaging Application?

Description

The following code lines demonstrate how to embed the camera application within an application. Besides the function that starts the camera application, MApaEmbeddedDocObserver::NotifyExit() must be implemented. It is called when the user has exited the camera application.

Solution

void MyApplication::NewImage()
{
const TUid KUidCamera = { 0x1000593F };
RApaLsSession apaLs;
TApaAppInfo appInfo;
CApaDocument* doc = NULL;
CEikProcess* process = CEikonEnv::Static()->Process();
User::LeaveIfError(apaLs.Connect());
CleanupClosePushL(apaLs);
User::LeaveIfError(apaLs.GetAppInfo(appInfo, KUidCamera));
doc = process->AddNewDocumentL(appInfo.iCaption, KUidCamera);
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // apaLs
TApaDocCleanupItem cleanup(process, doc);
CleanupStack::PushL(cleanup);
doc->NewDocumentL();
CleanupStack::Pop(); // cleanup
doc->EditL(this, ETrue);
}
void MyApplication::NotifyExit(TExitMode aMode)
{
// camera view has been closed
}
