Camera Functionality in SAPUI5
I am one of the newbies in the SAP World. As a learner, I recently came across a basic requirement to enable camera in the Sapui5 Application.
Requirement: To enable the camera functionality in the app and capture the live picture/image.
I am outlining the steps that I followed to approach this requirement:
Create a simple View with a button and press event. And also a Vbox which serves as a container for our image.
Coming to the Controller : code as follows
step:1 create a popup object as a global variable
step:2 launch the popup
step:3 capture the pic in our vbox (using canvas)
- before closing the dialog box capture the image from the player which is triggered when we click on capture.
- Before closing the dialog box we have to take the image out of the video stream and set it to our canvas which is the view part of our main screen app
this Dialog which we are creating in screen is taken as external window.so in order to bind to our view we need to have add Dependent code line… to connect my view and dialog popup box.
- set image is a function where we set the live image in the canvas to display the user
The flow of the App:
capture Button —> triggers the video — >triggers the Navigator API gives —>the live/current Camera Screen.

This approach created my further interest in UI5.
