Selfie Capture

Selfie Capture will capture a selfie for a tag that may be provided during initiation and if not provided this will be auto generated by the SDK and returned with a code.

Import the package

import 'package:smile_flutter/smile_flutter.dart';

Capture Selfie

If you want the SDK to generate a tag for you then call the method with an empty string
var result = await SmileFlutter.captureSelfie("")
If you want the generate to use a custom tag send a string to the SDK with alphanumeric characters with the exception of an underscore and no spacing in them.
var result = await SmileFlutter.captureSelfie(<STRING_TAG>)
This will present a screen as below:
Selfie Capture Screen

Get Results

The selfie capture process is an asynchronous process and will return an error code and a tag once done. The result looks as the below
var resultCode = result["SID_RESULT_CODE"];
var resultTag = result["SID_RESULT_TAG"];
If the result code is -1 AND the tag is not null or empty then the selfie capture was successful.

Optional Permissions

By default the SDK will request for permissions on it's own particularly on android and the first instance the call to the captureSelfie may fail and will definately fail if the user has not allowed the permissions for camera
It is advisable to then do permissions request prior to calling the captureSelfie method to make sure you handle permissions and perhaps even check for permissions before in that case then the call should be
var result = await SmileFlutter.captureSelfie("", HashMap<String, String>(),false)
The false will mean the SDK will try to open the selfie capture and assume permission handling has already been done

Optional UI Customisations

For basic UI customisation, an additional key-value Object needs to be passed as second parameter when performing a call to the library's captureSelfie("<TAG>",HashMap<String, String>(),false)
) method, where tag is a string and config the added key-value Map containing the desired settings.

Selfie Capture Screen Customisation

  • capture_title_text: a string value for the selfie capture screen's title. Refer to Strings and Colours section for details.
  • overlay_color: a 7-character (no alpha channel) hexadecimal color string (ie. #FF0000 for red) that sets the background color for the oval overlay view in the selfie capture screen
  • overlay_alpha: an integer value ranging from 0 to 255 that controls the transparency of the oval overlay view in the selfie capture screen
  • overlay_thickness: an non-bound integer value that determines the thickness of the oval overlay's line
  • overlay_dotted: a boolean value that specifies whether the oval overlay's line should dotted or plain (the latter by default).
  • overlay_width: a non-bound integer value that sets the oval shape's width in the selfie capture screen
  • overlay_height: same as the above, for the oval shape's height
  • capturing_progress_color: a 7-character (no alpha channel) hexadecimal color string (ie. #FF0000 for red) that determines the color of the oval overlay during selfie capture
  • captured_progress_color: a 7-character (no alpha channel) hexadecimal color string (ie. #FF0000 for red) that determines the color of the oval overlay after selfie capture
  • prompt_default_text: a string that determines the default text when the selfie capture view is initialise; this refers to text view directly under the selfie capture view
  • prompt_blurry_text: a string that informs the user that selfie is blurry
  • prompt_capturing_text: a string that informs the user that the selfie capture operation is underway
  • prompt_do_smile_text: a string used to prompt the user to smile
  • prompt_compatibility_mode_text: a string for compatibility-related issue
  • prompt_face_not_found_text: a string that determines the error message when the face is not found during selfie capture
  • prompt_face_too_close_text: a string that informs the user that they're positioned outside the acceptable selfie capture distance range
  • prompt_idle_text: a string that informs the user that the selfie capture has remained idle for long
  • prompt_move_closer_text: a string that prompts the user to move closer to the camera during selfie capture
  • prompt_too_dark_text: a string used to notify the user that brightness and light intensity is low
  • capture_tip_text: a string used for the tips at the bottom of the selfie capture screen

Selfie Review Screen Customisation

  • review_title_text: a string value for the selfie review screen's title.
  • review_prompt_text: a string that determines the prompt text view on the selfie review screen; this text view refers to the one directly under the selfie image view
  • review_prompt_style: a key-value Object that determines the styling for the prompt text view (the text view directly under the the selfie image view)'s styling - similar to screen_title_style
  • review_tip_text: a string used for the tips at the bottom of the selfie capture screen
  • review_tip_style: a key-value Object that sets the styling for the tips text view (the text view directly under the prompt text view in the selfie review screen)'s styling - similar to screen_title_style
  • review_confirm_text: a string value for the confirm button (positive action)'s text
  • review_confirm_color: a 7-character (no alpha channel) hexadecimal color string (ie. #FF0000 for red) that determines the the confirm button's background color

Basic Example

var config = HashMap<String, String>();
config["capture_title_text"] = "Capturing your smile..."";
var result = await SmileFlutter.captureSelfie("", config) ?? null;
