mergPopActivity can't attact image and title

Post by goharika » Thu Jul 14, 2016 2:32 pm

Hi All,

We have got an error when trying to share via external.
Then trying to share text or image this
opens empty popup window for facebook and only text part in email.
Does this fixed someone?

Thanks,
Gohar

If Monte is reading this forum...
For me (LC 9.6.0 Dp2 and iOS13.1 and iOS9.3) mergPopActivity works fine except that it does NOT attach images to WhatsApp.
Work fine instead with Copy, Save, Email, Messages, Telegram, Twitter, etc.

I use a png format.
I tried also doing a copy, from the Share, for pasting then in WhatsApp, but it does not paste (text only).
What gives?

It might be WhatsApp doesn’t accept pngs (given other apps are working it suggests a difference with WhatsApp - rather than the mechanism).

Perhaps test with a Jpeg and see if that works?

Solved:
on WhatsApp you need to empty the text on the command.
ex. mergPopActivity "", pImagePaths
You will loose the ability to add text, but in this way the image (png) gets attached.
