Camera Overlay - Xamarin Forms


i've been working on the sample provided by XLabs to work with the camera ( ) and its working ok (only if target API = 21) .

I wanted to know if its possible to Overlay the camera menu, the purpose is to add a rectangule to the screen. I know how to do it in Objective-C , but how would I implement it on Xamarin ? (for android and iOS)

Thanks in advance !

    I'm also interested in do something like this, does anybody have any tip? I'm using Media Plugin to take pictures.

    Im now using Media Plugin instead of the Xlabs example.

    Would be really nice if anyone already did implement something similar to what I want here could give me some light how to do it...

    Thanks in advance
