My app needs to be able to select multiple files in the Chooser. Is this possible?
Yes, you can build your own version of the chooser with the Core API, but users will have to go through the OAuth flow (and you'll need to build the UI yourself).
Update the docs in what way? https://www.dropbox.com/developers/dropins/chooser/android is the documentation for the Android Chooser, and I don't think it mentions multiple file selection at all. (In fact,
DbxChooser.Result doesn't have any provision for multiple files.)
Over time, we'll be updating all our samples to use Android Studio instead of Eclipse. (This will probably happen the next time we update that SDK.)
Perhaps this led me astray:
And of course its implied in your docs but not explicit.
I just subscribed to 1-TB of space. If I'd realized such a simple obvious operation can't be done I doubt I would have signed up! Not only't can't I do this using the Android App, I can't if I use a browser to go to Dropbox, even if I go to the Desktop version of the website. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! Does anyone know a competing cloud service that's $10 for 1 TB?
Ed, I think you're in the wrong forum. This forum is for developers using the Dropbox API. The Chooser is a component used by software developers to integrate Dropbox into apps that they build.
I think that Product Feedback is probably the most appropriate forum for your question. When you create a post over there, please make sure to explain what it is that you're trying to do and what's going wrong when you try it.
The way we work is changing. Share and discover new ways to work smarter with Dropbox in our community.Sound good? Let's get started.
