Ability to take pictures using the picture input widget from other widgets

The picture input widget currently can only take pictures using the CAPTURE button on the widget itself. This is a small quality of life improvement, but it would be nice to be able to fire this widget from triggers that aren’t attached to the input widget.

Hi John.
That can be done today with a Vision Camera.
After adding a camera in the Camera Configuration you can use a trigger (in this example press a button) to snap an image or record a video and save it in a variable/table record

@Reshef.Gadot, thanks for sharing this, it’s definitely a useful trick to know. This request came from a user who did not have a vision camera configuration, and for whom adding a vision would have introduced unnecessary complexity. I think there’s room here to bring the functionality from vision over to the ready-made picture input widget
