Android :: Loading HTML File From Local RES Directory
Sep 29, 2010
This should be very simple, but I can't find the answer anywhere. How do I load an html file (which I assume I keep in res/raw folder) into a webview?
What's the correct syntax or arrangement.
I want to download my apk file into "/data/local/" directory. I am able do this in external storage but unable on "/data/local" also i was trying to create folder on same location but could not do that. Through "adb push" it is possible but i need to do this java program.
My open source application needs to browse local HTML files on the SD card, and WebView is not enough because I need history and bookmarks. I wrote the following code. It correctly opens the browser, but fails to reach catalog.html and in fact it just opens whatever page was last browsed:
Uri uri = Uri.parse("content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/ myapp/catalog.html"); Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setData(uri); intent.setClassName("com.android.browser", "com.android.browser.BrowserActivity"); startActivity(intent);
How to load simple html file present in sd mmc card from web browser. It is mentioned in the net that due to security reasons this is not allowed. Is there any way to access the file from sdcard? Tried modifying private String homeUrl = "file:///sdcard/index.html"; in BrowserSettings.java file but browser throws an error "could not be loaded".
I am developing a small application in Android. I come across a problem, and not sure whether it is possible in Android platform. I have some local html files. There is an Activity contains a webview, which is used to display these local html files. In some cases, I want to display a picture selected from phone into one of these local html files. Is it possible? Has anyone resolved such problem? I appreciate any of your replies.
Ok I know everyone is going to tell me not to use RegEx for parsing HTML, but I'm programming on Android and don't have ready access to an HTML parser (that I'm aware of). Besides, this is server generated HTML which should be more consistent than user-generated HTML. The regex looks like this: Pattern patternMP3 = Pattern.compile. Code...
I'm loading html into a webview from my assets folder, works no problem. In my second experiment I've loaded HTML from a database (after pulling from remote source) and displayed in a webview (also no prob). Now I'm trying to change the baseref inside the html to have all JS and CSS references point to source files under assets. This part doesn't seem to work. I get warnings from the web console that it can't load these files due to security issue.
Now I've resorted back to a content provider and overriding openFile (and setting base ref with content://...) but now I'm hitting another problem with the JS and CSS files in assets being compressed. Can load html from assets but loading JS, CSS from within that HTML is another story. Before I dig deeper, am I over-complicating this?
How come this is the only file manager on the market (that I've found... I went through quite a few) that can open an HTML file from your SD card? I was a loyal user of Estrogen until I found that it couldn't.
I wrote a file to the sdcard, but it failed as follow:String sdcardFIle = "/sdcard/xxx.txt" FileOutputStream fos = openFileOutput (sdcardFile, Context. MODE_ WORLD_ WRITABLE ) ; openFileOutput failed, because fIle "/sdcard/xxx.txt" contains a path seperator. It is so strange. Is there another way to handle the situation?
I'm trying to save a file in a subdirectory in Android 1.5.I get a exception saying I can't have directory separator in a file name ("/"). I'm missing something of working with files in Android..I thought I could use the standard Java classes but they don't seem to work.I searched the Android documentation but I couldn't fine example and google is not helping me too.I'm asking the wrong question (to google).
I'm trying to read some local files, and ive been reading a lot of stuff about it, but i still don't know where to store the files on my phone and how to get the right path. Some say, it should be stored on /data/data/your.package.here/files but where is that, i mean i can get there when using the emulator but i have no clue how to put files in this on a real device.
All of the android examples for XmlPullParser pull from a local resource file, and all of the SAX examples pull the XML from a URL. I've been told SAX is faster, so I'm trying to use that to pull data from a local resource file (res/xml/thefile.xml)
The example code I'm working off of is here. So in that example, the code I want to change is:
URL url = new URL("http://example.com/example.xml"); ... xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));
Instead of using URL, I want to use getXml(R.xml.thefile) Is that possible, or does SAX need to get data from a URL?
Using Local XML file as a database for a android app?
I am trying to build a app with flash using a xml file as database, to read the xml from a external file from the local directory isn't a problem, the problem is how to write data from flash to the xml file.
