launch Windows default Camera App with HW Button RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we plan to build up a tablet product with a hardware button designed for Camera, we may use the button to call up windows default camera app, and after launch the app, use the same button to take photo. we want to implement the function on Windows platform, using real hardware button, like buttons for volume up & down,  I don't have any guides on how to build up the camera button, how to launch the default camera app, and how to take photo using the hardware button.

    Can anyone help on this ?

    Thanks so much.

  • Hi Strongpan,

    From your description, I assume you want to build application using Surface hardware button. I would recommend you have a look at Surface SDK. Your problem is more related to Surface development, so please reopen thread on Surface development forum for effective response. This forum is to discuss windows store app development.

    Thank you for understanding.
