Direct Download


Hi i just made a button to download an image automatically from a button. But this image downloads in folder MyDocuments/Downloads/archiv.jpg, but i don`t want that route.
Any who help me?



Where do you want it saved?


In the Gallery of the phone


the Gallery is able to display images from all directories of your device… what you need is a Gallery Refresh… see the tools extension

and if you like to store the file in another directory, set the ResponseFilename property… see also the documentation…



but which blocks i need to use


apart from that, or just that?


instead of only writing here in the forum, what about first thinking before writing and trying some things?
this can avoid useless questions…
btw. there also is a test project available there

Example App: Save Canvas and Gallery Refresh Demo



I do not think it’s right to talk that way to a beginner and novice. But hey, thank you.


you are welcome
