Add one button, on clicking which we are going to capture image from camera

JetPackTheme(darkTheme = true) {
    Scaffold(content = {
        Column(
            modifier = Modifier.padding(16.dp), content = {
                Button(onClick = {
                }, content = {
                    Text(text = "Capture Image From Camera")

Capture image from camera using jetpack compose

 

Add a remember say bitmap which will store the captured image bitmap value

 

val bitmap = remember { mutableStateOf(null) }

 

 

Add rememberLauncherForActivityResult which will register a request to start an activity from result which will create a record in the registry.

val launcher =
    rememberLauncherForActivityResult(ActivityResultContracts.TakePicturePreview()) {
        bitmap.value = it
    }

 

Let capture the image and display in Image view

Column(
    modifier = Modifier.padding(16.dp), content = {
        Button(onClick = {
            launcher.launch(
            )
        }, content = {
            Text(text = "Capture Image From Camera")
        })
        Spacer(modifier = Modifier.padding(16.dp))
        bitmap.let {
            val data = it.value
            if (data != null) {
                Image(
                    bitmap = data.asImageBitmap(),
                    contentDescription = null,
                    modifier = Modifier.size(400.dp)
                )
            }
        }
