Classes

TShareSheetForm is the main form that represents the main window of the sample. It contains the following components:

Implementation

When you run the application, the sample shows a picture and two buttons labeled as Take Photo and Share. The TTakePhotoFromCamera action is attached to the Take Photo button, and the TShowShareSheet action is attached to the Share button.

  • If you click the Take Photo button, the camera window is displayed and allows you to choose some camera properties (for example, the camera to be used (front or back)) and take a photo. Once the photo has been taken, the OnDidFinishTaking event assigns the image retrieved from the camera to the TImage component in order to display the photo on your FireMonkey form.
  • If you click the Share button, the sharing sheet opens and allows you to share your picture with other services (for example, in social networks, by email or Bluetooth).
