Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way to invoke the file chooser for android/mobile devices (similar to how the image chooser can be invoked) ? This would be for the sake of being able to choose another file type other than an image.

It would be similar to the 'ChooseRawFile' command which works for Windows and Mac.

This is Tier 1.

Thanks

I don't believe there is a standard "file chooser" in Android outside of the photo selector. You can invoke the "file share" system to share contents with another app but it sounds like that won't do what you want.

@Zappo

Thanks a lot for the confirmation. I suspected that was the case which is sad.

This would truly be a brilliant feature if added to AGK. So many useful scenarios in a mobile development context.
