Description AndyW 2012-11-02 11:18:52 UTC
Be able to set the ViewController that the MediaPicker uses.

Looking at the code it currently does this:

UIWindow keyWindow = UIApplication.SharedApplication.KeyWindow;
UIViewController rootViewController = keyWindow.RootViewController;
MediaPickerDelegate mediaPickerDelegate = new MediaPickerDelegate (rootViewController, sourceType, options);

Which for most cases is fine, but If i try and use PickPhotoAsync on a Modal ViewController I get:
] Warning: Attempt to present <UIImagePickerController: 0x15640d10> on <UINavigationController: 0x14fdbeb0> whose view is not in the window hierarchy!

I propose that eiher a public field is added or an optional constructor that can take a UIViewController, if this is null in private Task<MediaFile> TakeMedia ( .... use the original code.

Have you updated to the latest version? While presenting still happens automatically, a fix was added in 0.6 so it'll work in more scenarios.

Ah. No I had not. Updating has fixed the problem. Please close this as invalid. Is there somewhere I can subscribe for update to Xamarin.Mobile?
