I know, I know, the Win 10 for Mobile (smartphone & tablet?) is abandoned
by Microsoft… but I'm a romantic developer so my question is

why… why… WHY the Camera Control is still not available for Windows 10?
is REALLY so hard to implement it in this O.S.?

or one of you guys have a solution?

thank you

Hi VEGEboss

I'm sorry for your bad news about the control on VM23, but Did you try with import some .net? I'm not sure about this maybe could work, something like .jar on android with java code or like iPhone (XCode) with some files and Obj code. Maybe with windows phone i's possible to implement .net

I just give an idea I'm not sure about this...

I wish you the best luck on this

Best Regards
Jose

WHY would they waste any time implementing ANYTHING new for an
abandonned platform?

You may be romantic, but I'm pretty sure PCSoft is in it for the money...

Hi Fabrice

it's true but WHY they said that WE can create apps for that plataform if THEY don't support or add some functions
it no make sense at all to me.

Well,

that one is easy... the DID support the platform while the platform WAS
supported by MS, and as usual with each new platform, they couldn't port
EVERYTHING at once, so the subset of available functions is smaller on
that platform than on the 'older' ones.

Now that the creator of the platform abandonned it, they stopped adding
functions to it...

So you can create applications for it if you are really a masochist, or
you can follow the creator of the platform out the door.

What you all appear to be forgetting is that although Microsoft has abandoned Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 UWA is still live, kicking and being supported. This is the only option in Windev for developing apps for Windows 10 IOT devices that require to access GPIO and rest services, let alone the upcoming Windows powered by ARM that will only support UWA apps.

The functions that would be added to the UWA configuration would work with the mobile platform as well.

I personally would like the HTTPRequest and associated structures/function ported to UWA as they are essential for the development of IOT devices running Windows 10 IOT, that only supports UWA apps.


Just my thoughts :)

Hi Adam,

Development of UWA is done from WINDEV, (maybe also from mobile, but
definitely from windev), and just to be sure, I just created an UWA
project in windev 23 US, created a phone window, a button, and put a
httprequest in it...

All that was accepted bu the compiler without any problem...

I do not have (nor do I plan to have) a windows UWA phone, so I could
not test on the hardware, but as afar as I know, what you were
requesting is absolutely possible.

Best regards

Hi Fabrice

When I said HTTPRequest I was referring to the variable type that is then used with HTTPSend to allow you to build a complete Rest request with Header etc.

If you have any suggestion of how I can use the Rest API calls without this variable type I would be very appreciative.

You can compile UWA apps with Windev and run them straight on Windows 10 which, apart from Windows IOT, would be the reason for their development, not for deployment on the defunct Windows Phone.


Many thanks

Adam

Hi Fabrice

When I referred to HTTPRequest I was meaning the Variable type that is used with the function HTTPSend() to complete a complex REST api call using ..header, ..url , ..content etc.

If you have any suggestion of how to simulate this Variable type and use the HTTPRequest() function it would be very helpful.

You can compile UWA apps on WINDEV and run them directly on your Windows 10 Desktop. In addition to Windows IOT, the Windows Store type Universal Apps would be the reason I would use the Universals Windows compiler.


Many thanks

Adam

Hi Adam,

you don't need these variable to add headers... Just look at the syntax
of httprequest, there is a parameter for that.

I'm using httprequest to access all type of rest webservices, without
any problems.

Best regards

Thanks Fabrice

I will try the HTTPRequest() function and let you know how I get on using it with WIndows IOT
