android – onActivityResult returned from a camera, Intent null-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I follow the instruction on Camera on Android dev site

I just start the Camera Intent, not build my own camera.

The sample code to handle result return after taking a photo is as follows.

 protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (requestCode == CAPTURE_IMAGE_ACTIVITY_REQUEST_CODE) {
        if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            // Image captured and saved to fileUri specified in the Intent
            Toast.makeText(this, "Image saved to:\n" +
                    data.getData(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        } else if (resultCode == RESULT_CANCELED) {
            // User cancelled the image capture
        } else {
            // Image capture failed, advise user
        }
    }

    if (requestCode == CAPTURE_VIDEO_ACTIVITY_REQUEST_CODE) {
        if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            // Video captured and saved to fileUri specified in the Intent
            Toast.makeText(this, "Video saved to:\n" +
                    data.getData(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        } else if (resultCode == RESULT_CANCELED) {
            // User cancelled the video capture
        } else {
            // Video capture failed, advise user
        }
    }
}

resultCode is OK, but data is always NULL, which causes a NPE. I looked into the sdcard, the photo was really saved there. Any tip? tks much.

Update: logcat info as requested:

How to solve:

The problem with your code is this:

data.getData()

This call does not get the extra with the key “data” from the returned Intent. It gets the field data from the returned Intent which is probably null.

You need to get the extra from the returned Intent like this:

data.getExtras().get("data");

Some of the other answers have indicated this, embedded in tons of other code. That makes it difficult to actually see what the problem is.

Here is the answer from a similar question. It seems like it might be a problem with Samsung phones…

Basically, if you have code like this which creates the Intent:

Intent intent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);

fileUri = getOutputMediaFileUri(MEDIA_TYPE_IMAGE); // create a file to save the image
intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, fileUri); // set the image file name

// start the image capture Intent
startActivityForResult(intent, CAPTURE_IMAGE_ACTIVITY_REQUEST_CODE);

Then, in onActivityResult, replace data.getData() with fileUri.toString() and it will solve your problem.

Use @KJ50’s solution, and use savedInstanceState to make sure you don’t get a null.

/**
     * Here we store the file url as it will be null after returning from camera
     * app
     */
    @Override
    protected void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {
        super.onSaveInstanceState(outState);

        // save file url in bundle as it will be null on screen orientation
        // changes
        outState.putParcelable("file_uri", fileUri);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onRestoreInstanceState(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onRestoreInstanceState(savedInstanceState);

        // get the file url
        fileUri = savedInstanceState.getParcelable("file_uri");
    }

Try out below code :

 Button m_btnCamera;
  ImageView m_ivCaptureImage;
  String m_curentDateandTime;
  String m_imagePath;
  Bitmap m_bitmap;

   //Start camera to caputre image.
 Intent m_intent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
  m_intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, getImageUri());
  startActivityForResult(m_intent, TAKE_PHOTO_CODE);

 private Uri getImageUri() throws CustomException
    {
    Uri m_imgUri = null;
    File m_file;
    try
    {
        SimpleDateFormat m_sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd_HHmmss");
        m_curentDateandTime = m_sdf.format(new Date());
        m_imagePath = File.getPath() + File.separator + m_curentDateandTime + ".jpg";
        m_file = new File(m_imagePath);
        m_imgUri = Uri.fromFile(m_file);
    }
    catch (Exception p_e)
    {}      
    return m_imgUri;        
}

 @Override
  protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
  {
  super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
 if (requestCode == TAKE_PHOTO_CODE && resultCode == RESULT_OK)
    {
        m_bitmap = ImageHelper.scaleImage(m_imagePath, 200, 200);
            m_bitmap = ImageHelper.rotateImage(m_bitmap, true, m_rotate);
            m_ivCaptureImage.setImageBitmap(m_bitmap);
    }
  }
}

###

Try this

public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {

    switch (requestCode) {
        case PICK_IMAGE_ID:

            Bitmap bitmap = ImagePicker.getImageFromResult(this.getActivity(), resultCode, data);

            if(data!=null){
                //set image view
            }
            break;
        default:
            super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
            break;
    }
}

This code will help you

The getData() method returns data only if Android version is newer than M, else it will return null result.

if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {

                //Check Android version, as intent.getData() will return data only if v is above or equal to M otherwise the data will be null
                if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT == Build.VERSION_CODES.M) {
                    Uri selectedImageURI = imageReturnedIntent.getData();
                    Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "URI Path:" + selectedImageURI, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                } else {
                    Bitmap photo = (Bitmap) imageReturnedIntent.getExtras().get("data");
                    ByteArrayOutputStream bytes = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
                    photo.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, bytes);
                    String path = MediaStore.Images.Media.insertImage(getActivity().getContentResolver(), photo, "Title", null);
                    Uri selectedImageURI = Uri.parse(path);
                    Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "URI Path:" + selectedImageURI, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                }
            }

###

Try this code below…..

btn_capture.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

        public void onClick(View v) {

            Intent cameraIntent = new  Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE); 
            startActivityForResult(cameraIntent, CAMERA_REQUEST); 
        }
    });
 protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data){


             if (requestCode == CAMERA_REQUEST && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {  
                 Bitmap photo = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data"); 
                 img.setImageBitmap(photo);
             } 
          }

    }

Then finally you add below code to your manifest

   <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera"></uses-feature>
