#100DaysOfCodeChallenge - Crop Management Information System - Day 7


On Day 6 We received user input data via our Farmer form and save the form data in cloud firestore.


In this post we should of been implementing the camera functionality and layout. Unfortunately the method await _picker.getImage(source:; throws an error.

Exception has occurred.
PlatformException (PlatformException(no_available_camera, No cameras available for taking pictures., null, null))
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This error shows up only on the android emulator but not on a physical device. The android emulator camera works as expected when using the camera app.

Wrap Up

If you have as solution to this problem comment below. Until then I will continue to troubleshoot and hopefully find the solution sooner rather than later.
