Android Question

Camera intent failing

i am using this code to run a camera intent to take a photo. All being taken from HERE step by step (full sized camera option)

private void dispatchTakePictureIntent() {
Intent takePictureIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
// Ensure that there's a camera activity to handle the intent
if (takePictureIntent.resolveActivity(getActivity().getPackageManager()) != null) {

File photoFile = null;
try {
photoFile = createImageFile();
} catch (IOException ex) {
// Error occurred while creating the File

}
// Continue only if the File was successfully created
if (photoFile != null) {
Uri photoURI = FileProvider.getUriForFile(getActivity(), "com.example.android.fileprovider", photoFile);
takePictureIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, photoURI);
startActivityForResult(takePictureIntent, REQUEST_TAKE_PHOTO);
}
}
}

private File createImageFile() throws IOException {
// Create an image file name
String timeStamp = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd_HHmmss").format(new Date());
String imageFileName = "JPEG_" + timeStamp + "_";
File storageDir = getActivity().getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES);
File image = File.createTempFile(imageFileName, ".jpg",storageDir);

// Save a file: path for use with ACTION_VIEW intents
mCurrentPhotoPath = "file:" + image.getAbsolutePath();
Toast.makeText(getActivity(), mCurrentPhotoPath, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
return image;
}


This is my
Manifest
file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.terrormachine.swipeapp">
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:supportsRtl="true"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
<provider
android:name="android.support.v4.content.FileProvider"
android:authorities="com.example.android.fileprovider"
android:exported="false"
android:grantUriPermissions="true">
<meta-data
android:name="android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS"
android:resource="@xml/file_paths">
</meta-data>
    </provider>

<activity
android:name=".MainActivity"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
</application>

</manifest>


and my paths xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<paths xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <external-path name="my_images" path="Android/data/com.example.package.name/files/Pictures" />
</paths>


and i am getting this error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Failed to find configured root that contains /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.example.terrormachine.swipeapp/files/Pictures/JPEG_20161015_211933_-593154643.jpg


A little surprising since the file "shell" is there(at this location).
I fount THIS thread but i cant understand a thing...can you explain it humanlike? Any solution is welcome! Its an important project and i need to finish as much as possible and this is a huge stop.

Answer

In your files_path.xml, you need to replace com.example.package.name with your apps package name, as explained on developers site.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<paths xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <external-path name="my_images" path="Android/data/com.example.terrormachine.swipeapp/files/Pictures" />
</paths>

Also add camera permission in your AndroidManifest.xml file.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera"
              android:required="true" />
