How to upload photos captured using HTML5 camera input tag?

It is now possible to access the phone's camera via HTML5 <input type="file" accept="image/*" capture="camera" /> tag. But how do I use this new HTML5 tag with WebAssist so that I can upload the photo to my website?

it works the same as a standard file tag.

make sure the forms encoding type is set to multipart/form-data, that the file field has a name attribute, and use the file upload behavior in data bridge.

Do you have any sample codes? What should be the data type for storing the photos when I create the MySQL database?

We do not have sample pages for this.

The fotos will not be stored in the database.

You would use the Upload File Behavior to upload the file to your server.

if you wish to store the uploaded file name in a database, use the Data Assist insert record behavior to save the file name.

see the following tutorial for details:
