Take a picture with Universal GUI

What are the options to directly access the camera in the Universal GUI on Windows to take photos? For example, we have Micorosft Surfaces where we want to directly add a photo to a table (e.g., using the multiple upload HTML page that I have working now), but also with a normal form, but with the Image Upload control, I can only choose files instead of taking a photo. On iOS, I do get that option.

Hi Patrick,

Currently the Universal GUI leaves it up to the device (browser + OS combination) to decide which options are available. Windows sadly does not provide the camera option.

But technically it should be possible because Universal can use the camera when it is a Barcode control?
