> new resizable cropping rectangle instead of Apple's standard square
> -------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-10033
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Plugin Camera
>         Environment: iOS
>            Reporter: Manfred Wühr
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: feature, iOS
> On iOS there's only that very insufficient inflexible cropping square – compared to
Android or WinMobile – which moreover obviously doesn’t work properly (see CB-9930, CB-2648).
> As we need a flexible, sizable rectangle, we implemented that in our fork of the camera
> And with that we even already submitted a [pull request|].
> (being very new to Cordova we didn’t realize, that there obviously has to be such a
JIRA issue, before).
> To be downward compatible and to not urge others, for whom that square may be sufficient,
it is made parametrizable via a new preference (as this is iOS specific and nothing that has
to be changeable at runtime), defaulting to false.
> If the plugin is called with option allowEdit == true, then setting this new preference
to true suppresses that standard (fairly useless) square for cropping the photo, even suppresses
the (then also useless) view of the photo with the "Retake"- and "Use Photo"-buttons, but
instead offers a resizable cropping rectangle (with "Redo" and "Save“).
> More detail about how it’s implemented can be found in the comment of the mentioned
pull request;
> and as there already started a discussion, I added more detail and thoughts [here|]
and [here|].
> We think others could use and want that, too – in the standard plug in.
> Yes, it is platform specific, but on Android and WinMobile it’s already possible to
crop with a flexible rectangle (somehow – knowing, that Android also isn’t really satisfying).
> I also emailed with a [proposal|].
