  • User117159 posted


    i've been working on the sample provided by XLabs to work with the camera ( https://github.com/XLabs/Xamarin-Forms-Labs/wiki/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 !

    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
