Share text and photo for the same invocation?

Hi,

 

I can invoke to share text or photo seperately by setting the mimeType to 'text/plain' or 'image/jpg'. My data has text and a photo and I want to share both text and photo for the same invocation (e.g., email, facebook, BBM...). How can I achieve this? Thanks in advance.

But, when sharing an invocation, depending on the chosen source the end user will have the option to add text of their own =) 

 

not quite the absolute solution but it does have its uses

Re: Share text and photo for the same invocation?

Perhaps a stupid question, but can you push multiple invokes in a row on one button press?

So the user presses share: invokes to share picture and before the user can return into the app, the app invokes another share, sharing a text?


If this is possible, itwould be a workarround to share a picture and a text.

Don't forget to mark as solved and like my post if it helped out!

Yeah, you are right. It is a stupid solution.

It is supported for some targets.  For example, you can invoke the email composer with both text and an image.  See the Composing an email with prepopulated fields section for details on that.  You can see everything supported by the core applications here:  Invoking Core Apps
