      Camera Access on Tablet PC with FMP Runtime Application

      Post

           Hi,

           II have a client (public utility) that uses Windows based PCs and would like to use FM (runtime) on a tablet to collect data, including videos and photos, from field visits. 

           Do tablet PCs work like iPads where you tap to select the camera to insert a photo? 

           thanks

           Mark

               They do not. The simplest (for you the developer) solution is for the user to capture the picture or video from whatever app comes with the tablet, saving the image/video and then use Insert Picture or Insert Audio/Video to insert the captured image/video into a container field.

               To make it simpler for the user, you may be able to find a compatible plug in that captures the visual data and inserts it into the container field--making this more like an iPad or iPhone based system using FM GO.
