Launch camera programmatically

December 7, 2011 Leave a comment

If you’ve ever wanted to launch camera programmatically, this snippet will do.

Intent i = new Intent();
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_CAMERA));
sendOrderedBroadcast(i, null);

Have fun,
