I have been working on xamarin.forms from like 10 months and on its ios project from last one month.
I have created custom gallery for selecting multiple images from it and use them further in my app. I use
PHAsset for loading images in collectionview.
I want to store its file path in a list because, as I want these images later in my app and I have implemented in android by this way(storing paths
List<string> which is defined in PCL project) I want to do same thing in ios so that I won't need to implement separately for two different platforms and it will be easy to understand.
So, I get path like this
file:///var/mobile/Media/DCIM/104APPLE/IMG_4585.PNG. I think this path is fine.
So, If I do
File.ReadAllBytes(filepath) it gives
filepath not found error. Surprising fact is it work in simulator. In simulator, its path is in
Documents/Media/DCIM/.../IMG_001.PNG (Sorry ! I don't remember exact path. but images are in where they actually should be!)
NSData data = NSData.FromFile(filepath); // I tried FromUrl, FromString Also. In FromString I get NSData but its length is too small like 44 or 126. UIImage image = UIImage.LoadFromData(data); // image is null
After above line I do
Marshal.Copy and convert it to
So, what is wrong with my code ?
can anybody please help ?
