I dont want show all apps to share, only share direct via intent.

Dim u As Uri
u.Parse("file://" & File.Combine(folder,imagefile))
Dim i As Intent
i.Initialize(i.ACTION_SEND,"")
i.SetType("image/*")
i.SetComponent("com.google.android.apps.docs/.shareitem.UploadSharedItemActivity")
i.PutExtra("android.intent.extra.STREAM",u)
StartActivity(i)


com.google.android.apps.docs

Hi Douglas, unfortunately we don't have intents like this documented for the Dropbox app, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a request to do so.
