Issue

I want to create a picture chooser from gallery. I use code

 intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
 startActivityForResult(intent, TFRequestCodes.GALLERY);

My problem is that in this activity and video files are displayed. Is there a way to filter displayed files so that no video files will be displayed in this activity?

Solution

Absolutely. Try this:

Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setType("image/*");
intent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
startActivityForResult(Intent.createChooser(intent, "Select Picture"), PICK_IMAGE);

Don’t forget also to create the constant PICK_IMAGE, so you can recognize when the user comes back from the image gallery Activity:

public static final int PICK_IMAGE = 1;

@Override
public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
{
    if (requestCode == PICK_IMAGE) {
        //TODO: action
    }
}

That’s how I call the image gallery. Put it in and see if it works for you.

EDIT:

This brings up the Documents app. To allow the user to also use any gallery apps they might have installed:

    Intent getIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
    getIntent.setType("image/*");

    Intent pickIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
    pickIntent.setType("image/*");

    Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(getIntent, "Select Image");
    chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, new Intent[] {pickIntent});

    startActivityForResult(chooserIntent, PICK_IMAGE);
