Usage


Images

After adding the library, you need to:

  1. Create an object from ImagePicker or VideoPicker
  2. Override onActivityResult to receive the path of image or videos.

Create an ImagePicker

You will need to create a new instance of ImagePicker. Once the instance are configured, you can call build().

        new ImagePicker.Builder(MainActivity.this)
                        .mode(ImagePicker.Mode.CAMERA_AND_GALLERY)
                        .compressLevel(ImagePicker.ComperesLevel.MEDIUM)
                        .directory(ImagePicker.Directory.DEFAULT)
                        .extension(ImagePicker.Extension.PNG)
                        .scale(600, 600)
                        .allowMultipleImages(false)
                        .enableDebuggingMode(true)
                        .build();

Override onActivityResult

In order to receive the path of image, you will need to override onActivityResult .

   @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

        if (requestCode == ImagePicker.IMAGE_PICKER_REQUEST_CODE && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            List<String> mPaths = data.getStringArrayListExtra(ImagePicker.EXTRA_IMAGE_PATH);
            //Your Code
        }
    }

Additional Options

  • mode to select the mode, you can choose one of these CAMERA,GALLERY or CAMERA_AND_GALLERY
.mode(ImagePicker.Mode.CAMERA)
  • extension You can change the extension of image to PNG or JPG
.extension(ImagePicker.Extension.PNG)
  • compressLevel You can change the quality of image with three different levels HARD,MEDIUM, SOFT or NONE
.compressLevel(ImagePicker.ComperesLevel.MEDIUM)
  • directory You can pass the storage path, or select Directory.DEFAULT_DIR to keep the default path.
.directory(ImagePicker.Directory.DEFAULT)

//OR

.directory(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory()+"/myFolder")
  • scale You can scale the image to a a minimum width and height. This will only be used if compressLevel is set. To avoid OutOfMemory issues, ensure this is used.
.scale(500, 500)
  • allowMultipleImages Extra used to select and return multiple images from gallery CANNOT select single image from gallery if this feature was enabled
	.allowMultipleImages(true)
  • enableDebuggingMode used to print Image Picker Log
	.enableDebuggingMode(true)
  • allowOnlineImages an option to allow the user to select any image from online resource ex: Google Drive (KNOWN ISSUE) if you enable this option then you cannot select multiple images
	.allowOnlineImages(true)

Create an VideoPicker

You will need to create a new instance of VideoPicker. Once the instance are configured, you can call build().

        new VideoPicker.Builder(MainActivity.this)
                        .mode(VideoPicker.Mode.CAMERA_AND_GALLERY)
                        .directory(VideoPicker.Directory.DEFAULT)
                        .extension(VideoPicker.Extension.MP4)
                        .enableDebuggingMode(true)
                        .build();

Override onActivityResult

In order to receive the path of videos, you will need to override onActivityResult .

   @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

        if (requestCode == VideoPicker.VIDEO_PICKER_REQUEST_CODE && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            List<String> mPaths =  data.getStringArrayListExtra(VideoPicker.EXTRA_VIDEO_PATH);
            //Your Code
        }
    }

Additional Options

  • mode to select the mode, you can choose one of these CAMERA,GALLERY or CAMERA_AND_GALLERY
.mode(VideoPicker.Mode.CAMERA)
  • extension You can change the extension of video to MP4
.extension(VideoPicker.Extension.MP4)
  • directory You can pass the storage path, or select Directory.DEFAULT_DIR to keep the default path.
.directory(VideoPicker.Directory.DEFAULT)

//OR

.directory(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory()+"/myFolder")
  • enableDebuggingMode used to print Video Picker Log
	.enableDebuggingMode(true)

RxJava 2 for MediaPicker

It's an extenstion that allow you to return an observable from ImagePickerBuilder or VideoPickerBuilder, all you need is to add below dependency and then return the observable from ImagePickerHelper || VideoPickerHelper class.

Gradle

dependencies {
  implementation 'io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxandroid:(Last_version)'
  implementation 'io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxjava:(Last_version)'
	implementation 'net.alhazmy13.MediaPicker:rxjava:(Last_version)'
}
  new ImagePickerHelper(
        new ImagePicker.Builder(Context)
                ...)
                .getObservable()
                .subscribe(....);
