Android :: HTML In String Resource?

Apr 19, 2010

I know I can put escaped HTML tags in string resources. However, looking at the source code for the Contacts application I can see that they have a way of not having to encode the HTML.Unfortunately, when I try something similar (like Hello, <b>World</b>!), getString() returns the string without the tags (I can see that in logcat). Why is that? How can I get the original string, with tags and everything? How is the Contacts application doing it?

Android :: Reference String In String Array Resource With Xml

Nov 12, 2010

I have preferences where you can enable/disable what items will show up on the menu. There are 17 items. I made a string array in values/arrays.xml with titles for each of these 17 items.

I have preferences.xml which has the layout for my preferences file, and I would like to reference a single item from the string array to use as the title.

In the Android developer reference, I see how I can reference a single string with XML, but now how I can reference a string from an array resource in XML.

Android :: Accessing Raw Resource Files With Filename As String

Mar 7, 2009

Is there a way to access a raw resource file by having its filename in a String? According Google's documentation, I need to use "Resources.openRawResource (R.raw.myDataFile)".

Android :: Development String Array Resource Too Big - Crashing App

Nov 24, 2010

I have a String Array Resource that has about 1000 drug names

<string-array name="index">
<item>Aspirin</item>
<item>Levitra</item>
....
</string-array>

I tried to load this string array into a String[] inside an activity. Using the same syntax provided by Google's java documentation found here.

Resources res = getResources();
String[] drugs = res.getStringArray(R.array.index);

It appears my string-array has too many records and its causing my App to crash (stack-overflow?) When I reduce the string-array resource to about 506 records, the app works again, but adding even 1 more element in the string-array would crash the app. What should I do? I want to code logic to filter and do other things to the list. I do not have a SQL db in the app so I can't do the processing in the DB. Is there a way to iterate through the string-array resource without loading it into a String []? I notice the resource is a pointer. Or is there an alternative data structure or approach that would work?

Android :: String Resource ID Values Guaranteed To Be Consistent Over Different Projects

Jun 7, 2010

I have some messages being passed back from my server through php. The problem is that the messages are in English and if the user is using another language they will still get the message in English.

So I had an idea that maybe instead of passing back the message I would instead pass the String resource Id from the android app, that way the app will get the correct string id for their language. I will use this in a number of apps so I just want to know if the string id is guaranteed to be the same across different android projects?

Android : String As Resource Identifiers - Name "continue"?

Jan 30, 2009

I created a new string in the resource file and got what seems to be an odd error. The name of the string was "continue". The error reported: ERROR invalid symbol: 'continue'

Changing the name by even one character solved the problem so it's nothing serious. My question: is there some set of names we must not use as resource identifiers?

Android :: Floating Menu Buttons In HTML - Regular HTML - CSS Solution

Nov 1, 2010

I have heavily edited the original text and instead of the how question I am posting the code that produces the effect I wanted, namely a floating menu on top that stays fixed as I scroll whatever is in the middle with a lower menu at the bottom of the screen. Ain't life sweet - Might even work on the iPhone as well.

Why I posted was like I said in the original question. I'm fiddling with creating the initial lay out for a "mobile" application for the disabled, have tonnes of data, dictionary files, icons for the purpose etc. I want to have the app running as HTML to make it as portable as possible, i.e. make it runnable on Android, Iphone, Maemo... whatever.

I got some hints by looking at the example at http://www.quackit.com/css/codes/css_floating_menu.cfm as well as a lot of trial and error and finally minor edits by a paid freelancer.

Below you can find some crude (to put it mildly) HTML/CSS (cut the CSS part and load a style instead in the HTML's you create for cleaner code) but for now, let's look at the prototype concept.

CODE:...........

You can see the working example on your Android device or in your Android emulator http://globability.org/webapp/aaa.html

Need to get the sound working though - but nearly there :)Links to the different web based version and thoughts behind application can be found on:

The project this application springs from can be found on [url] - Look under prototypes (it is the top one under the heading protypes).

Android : Use Html Styling But Can't Change A Font Size In Html Without Using Css

May 13, 2010

I;ve been trying to create a custom button in android using this tutorial - http://www.gersic.com/blog.php?id=56

It works well but it doesn't say how to change the font size or weighting. Any ideas?

There was another question on here and the only answer was to use html styling but you can't change a font size in html without using css (or the deprecated font tag). There must be a better way of setting the pixel size of the font used on buttons?

Android :: How To Use Resource Within A Custom Xml Resource File?

Aug 3, 2010

I have an XML resource file:
<resources> <section>
<category value="1" resourceId="@xml/categoryData1" />
<category value="2" resourceId="@xml/categoryData2" />
<category value="3" resourceId="@xml/categoryData3" />
</section> </resources>
Using XmlPullParser, on the START_TAG, I can use:
int value = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "value", 0);
to get values 1, 2, 3...however:
int resourceId = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "resourceId", 0);
doesn't work...it just yields the default value 0, or whatever I change the default value (3rd parameter) to be. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or if this is possible?

Android :: Java Datetime Values From String To Long To String

Oct 1, 2010

In Android, capturing date from datepicker and storing as string in sqlite. Sorting by date doesn't work because they're strings (unless I'm doing it wrong.I've googled this issue for ~5 days, and it looks like there should be a way to capture the date from the date picker, convert it to a Long, store it in sqlite as a Long, select and sort on the Long date value, then convert the Long back to a "mm/dd/yyyy" string for display. I've tried various combinations of parse statements, Date, FormatDate, etc. with no luck at all.On activity start, get today's date and display it in button which calls the datepicker.Capture new date from datepicker (if one is entered), save it as a long to sqlite.On opening an activity showing a listview of records, select from sqlite with orderby on date (Long), convert Long to "mm/dd/yyyy" string for display in ListView.
