Playbook/Qt: access photo gallery



I need to access the Playbook 2 photo gallery from my Qt4.8/Qml app:

1.) to show the pictures and let the user select pictures(s)

2.) getting all pictures in photo gallery

3.) add new pictures to photo gallery


So, are there means to either open the native gallery app for picture selection or to get at least all picture file names from the gallery? And, is it possible to add pictures from Qt?

Re: Playbook/Qt: access photo gallery

You can use Qt to access the shared file system no problem.

You need to add


 to the bar descriptor though. Then you can use the standard Qt classes for file access.

See HERE for a good start.
