Hello.
I've just tried to use the ShareFile command to share a simple text file on Android. I create a text file and then share it like this:


No matter what app I choose to share it with, it doesn't seem to work. For example:
Google Drive - Get a "Request contains no data" error immediately
GMail - It puts the file path and name into the 'To:' field
DropBox - Get a "No file to upload" error immediately
Copy to Clipboard - clipboard remains empty/unchanged
FX Save As (file manager) - "The item cannot be saved" error immediately

I've tried it on iOS and it seems to works fine, saving the file to iCloud and attaching it to an email.

If I use ShareText("This is some text") it works exactly as expected. GMail puts the text in the body of a new email, Twitter puts the text in a new tweet, it gets copied to the clipboard fine, even Google Drive creates a new file using the text as the filename. I could use this command instead but I am worried about any limitations on the size of text that can be passed.

Am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: Forgot to say, I am using AGK2 Tier 1 with Android 7.0 and have tried broadcasting the program and also creating an APK file and installing that (just in case) with the same results.

EDIT2: I am wondering if this might be a location or permissions issue. It seems to be passing the URI of the file to the shared app , which when broadcasting to the AGK2 Player App it comes through as: //com.thegamecreators.agk_player2.provider/files/TestApp/media/simple.txt which does not seem to exist or at least isn't visible to other apps like the file manager.

Sorry for the bump. I'm just a little worried I might be missing something on Android.
Could someone please confirm that my problem exists on other peoples devices?

If there is somewhere better I should post bug reports, please let me know. Many thanks.

Tried different Android devices now with the same results. Definitely a bug in the Android version.

Sorry for the bump but its been 24 days without even an acknowledgement of this bug. I know AppGameKit Studio is taking up most of the dev team's time but this bug also appears in the Studio Alpha.

Is there a better way to report bugs? Tried a new forum thread, tried adding to the current "version release" forum thread, and tried messaging Paul directly through the forum. I am open to suggestions. Thanks.

If the bug also exists in Studio then I'd recommend reporting the bug on their github page
