Android :: Drawable - Folder For Storing Images In Project

Jul 16, 2010

I was working on Android 1.5, but now moved to the latest version. So there is only "drawable" folder in Android 1.5, but now There are 3 different folder for storing images in android project. And as i have found some articles for these 3 folders that

hdpi means High-dpi
mdpi means medium-dpi
ldpi means low-dpi

But still in confusion that what is the exact purpose of these 3 folders and when to use particular folder to store images in that?

Android :: Images From Drawable Folder Loading Scaled

Oct 18, 2010

I recently rebuilt my project to target 2.2 from 2.1. In the old project, I did not specify a target SDK (the manifest did not contain something like:
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" />).
This gave me an error in the console when running, but everything worked fine so I didn't fool with it.

The new project now uses <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" /> in the manifest. But now my drawables from the /drawable-nodpi/ folder are loading with scaling, making them much smaller and significantly changing the desired visuals. If I cut out the <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" /> tag from my manifest, they load properly without scaling.

Even when loading my images like so:
BitmapFactory.Options opts = new BitmapFactory.Options();
opts.inScaled = false; Bitmap bm = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(_resources, resId, opts);
They are still scaled when I declare the minimum SDK in the manifest, but not scaled if I remove that tag. How can I load them without scaling while still declaring the minimum SDK?

How To Move Set Of Images In Resources / Drawable - HDPI To Assets Folder

Dec 13, 2013

I am trying to move a set of images currently in the resources/drawable-hdpi folder to the Assets folder.

These images are copied to the private application directory when the app is installed.

When I do this the resulting image is smaller than when I had the image in the resources folder. i.e. the baked beans image is smaller than the others. If I load the baked beans images from the drawables folder it is the same size as the other product images.

I have tried to scale the image but it has no effect.

public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent)
{
ImageView imView = (ImageView)rowView.findViewById(R.id.product_thumb nail);
ImageView imProduct = (ImageView)rowView.findViewById(R.id.product_icon) ;
tvName.setText((CharSequence) values.get(position).getName());

[Code]...

Android :: How To Preview All Drawable Images?

Dec 15, 2009

Android framework has variety of icons and images - accessible as R.drawable.* - that can be used by applications for common tasks. Their names give some hint about what they are, but in many cases that's not sufficient. One has to use trial-n-error to find the right icon that fits one's purpose.

My question: Is there a way where I can preview all these images in one place, so that I can quickly decide which ones to use? I have looked inside android source code, but couldn't locate the root of these drawables.

Android :: Loading Images As Drawable Objects From URL

Jul 30, 2010

I am presently using the following piece of code to load in images as drawable objects form a URL.
Drawable drawable_from_url(String url, String src_name) throws java.net.MalformedURLException, java.io.IOException { return Drawable.createFromStream(((java.io.InputStream)new java.net.URL(url).getContent()), src_name); }

This code works exactly as wanted, but there appears to be compatibility problems with it. In version 1.5, it throws a FileNotFoundException when I give it a URL. In 2.2, given the exact same URL, it works fine. The following URL is an sample input I am giving this function.
http://bks6.books.google.com/books?id=aH7BPTrwNXUC&printsec=frontcover&img=1&zoom=5&edge=curl&sig=ACfU3U2aQRnAX2o2ny2xFC1GmVn22almpg
How would I load in images in a way that is compatible across the board from a URL?

Android :: Setting Button Images In Drawable XML

Mar 25, 2010

I am getting an error from Eclipse when I use this xml file (res / drawable/btnswitch.xml) to designate different button conditions

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable/btn_st_rd" />
<!-- pressed --> <item android:state_focused="true"
android:drawable="@drawable/btn_st_gr" /> <!-- focused --> <item android:drawable="@drawable/btn_st_gr" /> <!-- default --> </selector>

I call it in my layout file with this code:

<Button android:id="@+id/startTimer_btn" android:src="@drawable/btnswitch"" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="fill_parent" />
Eclipse says it can't run the configuration because I have errors but does not show any errors. And when I remove the xml code (to go back to my original code which just sets a background image for the Button) it says that now has errors. I have to restart Eclipse to get the original code to run again.

Android :: Organizing Res / Drawable Folder

Aug 10, 2010

My app has loads of images in the drawable folder, and I want to organize them into sub folders to make them more manageable. When I create a new folder, and move the images, they are no longer found (and not compiled into the R.java file). Can this be done, or do all my hundreds of images have to sit directly in the drawable folder?

Android :: Detecting Which Drawable Folder Was Used

Nov 26, 2009

Is there a way to detect whether a image was pulled from the folder res/drawable or res/drawable-hdpi?I am trying to save space and have a program that is using some hdpi bitmaps and some mdpi bitmaps. When an image is placed in drawable-hdpi it automatically replaces the mdpi version. I need to know when this happens beacuseI am using bitamp.resize() to fix the image sizes.The problem is that the getDensity() method (in the if statment after the && ) returns the screen density and I need the original bitmap density. This allays matched the screenDPI and returns false. I have a lot of artwork and do not want to duplicate everything for every size screen. I am trying to just create hdpi bitmaps for the ones that don't look good when re-sized.

Android :: Drawable Images - Cropping Edges To Make Rounded

Feb 16, 2010

I have a small project in which I download images from Internet in the form of drawable and use them in Imageview for which I have provided functionality similar to an Imagebutton but without the gray edges. The question is that is there any functionality in Android (similar to IPhone) by which we can crop the drawable from edges to make them rounded edged drawable. Even if its a "not-tested-neither-recommended" method, do let me know. I would like to work on this a bit.

Android :: Drawable Resource Images - JPEG Files Supported

May 28, 2010

Can I have sub-folders to hold my drawable resources. For example can I store an image in, say, 'res/drawable/content/images/myimage.jpg' and then find that resource via a call to:
id = context.getResources().getIdentifier("com.mycompany.myprog:drawable/ content/images/myimage", null, null);
I have tried this and it doesn't seem to be working (but I may have something wrong). Is it supposed to work or do all the resources need to be in the root drawable folder? Also, are jpeg files supported and drawable resources?

I have 24 .png images and a ImageView. On user touch I change the ImageView to be one of the 24 images. I'm currently doing setImageResource(R.drawable.hour_1);, but there is a slight delay after I touch the screen and the ImageView actually changes. I figure the delay is the resource being loaded, but I can't find a better way to do this.

Android :: Java Development - Missing Drawable Folder (NetBeans IDE)

Aug 27, 2010

I recently switched to Ubuntu and decided to use NetBeans for Java development instead of Eclipse which I used on Windows. The problem is, in the Eclipse I used on Windows, I had a folder named "drawable-hdpi" with the standard app icon in and a few other folders like "drawable-mdpi" (I think). But with NetBeans, there doesn't seem to be any folders named "drawable".

Android :: Android Storing Images Downloaded From Web

Jan 13, 2010

I had a question related to whether or not (and how) I should store images loaded from the web. Let's say I am calling a web service from my Android app. In this web service I get a URL for an image on the web. I download and show this image on the left side of a list item in a ListView. My question is, what method should I use for possibly storing the image? Should I.Save it to the SDCard, checking if it exists when the ListView is created (on subsequent requests) and re-downloading as necessary (while updating the image occasionally, in case it changes).Store it in the cache using Context.getCacheDir(), but possibly being forced to re-download it more often since I cannot rely on the image staying in the cache.
Always download it and never store the image.

The image files themselves are fairly small, but I expect some users could have dozens of these small images downloaded/stored. Which would work best, and/or what is the preferred method? As a side question, should I load all of the images in my ListView first (and possibly lock the UI for some time) or load them asynchronously but show a placeholder graphic in the meantime (which might be a bit more "ugly")?

Android :: Avoiding Duplicate Resources In Project / Want Some Of Landscape Images

Aug 25, 2010

I have some images in my drawable folder and they have landscape versions in drawable-land. However I want some of the landscape images to be shared, as it seems a waste to duplicate the file with a different name. Is it possible to make a sym link (shortcut) or something for one of the duplicated files to prevent wasting space

Folder explanation below as I'm not great at explaining myself:

/drawable
> image1.png
> image2.png
/drawable-land
>image1.png <-- This image
>image2.png <-- is identical to this file
