I published an application that stores data in a local database.
Now I have to publish an update to this application to fix some little bugs, but I am afraid that downloading and installing the update will delate the local database associated with the previous version.
I would like to know how the update system works. Will installing an update completely delete all the apk, files, databases associeted with the previous version?
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.
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? neither mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about"); or mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about.htmal"); works. What's the correct syntax or arrangement.
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);
I am trying to overlay route data in KML files on a MapView.
The following code works great:
The only problem I have with this is that I don't need to re download these KML files every time. I have about 10-15 KML files that will rarely change. Also since it has to connect, download, and parse these each time there is a delay in opening the maps.
It would make a lot more since for me to save these as a local resource and have the URI reference it there. Is there a way to construct a URI using the geo: scheme and have it point towards a local resource?
It looks like file:///sdcard support was included in 2.1. The only reference I could find to it was at the end of this bug report thread. I am currently at work and don't have time to play with this yet but I would like to figure it out later. I feel like there are a lot of people on stackoverflow and elsewhere who would really appreciate a reasonable way to do this.
"You can store files directly on the mobile device or on a removable storage medium. By default, other applications cannot access these files. "
I could write to the sdcard (/sdcard/file.tmp) and other apps could access these files, right?
I would like some local storage that I can write files to (and read from later) that are not accessible to other applications, and I will always have access to. The problem with the sdcard is that if someone plugs in a USB cable and turns on MSC, my application (and all applications on the phone) will lose (both read and write) access to the /sdcard directory. So I need something more reliable.
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?
Some html files are in my sd card. I am using qualcomm surfs. By using adb shell commands or "adb shell am start -n com.android.browser/.BrowserActivity file://sdcard/example.html" how can i access or open that html files. Is there any method for accessing sd card files.
I wanted to be able to use my Google bookmarks on my Droid. I found a program that imports them to the phone, but it replaces everything and I didn't want all those bookmarks in my browser. I exported my Google bookmarks to a HTML file and stored it on my SD card in the download folder and named it bookmarks.htm. I then went into the Droid browser and typed the following URL: content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/download/bookmarks.htm
I then created a bookmark of the link.
Now, I open my browser, click on the bookmark, and all my Google Bookmark sites are displayed as links in order listed under their categories.
Question is there a way to play html and swf files offline? I have successfully updated my SGS to Froyo and flash works okay, but I would like to play html / swf files while not connected to the Internet. When I point my browser to local file, say file://sdcard/game.swf I get a message file not found. Anyone know a way how to do this?
Check out Mono. It takes a different approach by giving you access to all artists and their releases and then matching up content from either your local files, your files uploaded to Google Music or YouTube.
I want to add sound in android web view application. ( The sound should be play when click a button in the screen.) My html application worked in the browser. But not worked in android.I don't know why? My code...

I have a 64gb MicroSD card installed, and put a copy of my photography website on it. I find I am unable to figure out a way to open it in Google Chrome.
I used ES File Explorer's FTP function to begin with, to copy files from my website to the card, and this worked beautifully. When I click on the index.html file on the card, the only options offered are HTML Viewer and some text editors. Chrome is not an option (Chrome is the default browser for my phone). I can try "Open as" and choose Chrome, but get the same error message as below.
If I long-press the file, and select Properties, I can copy the (full) Path for the file, but when I paste this into Chrome's URL bar, it won't open:
Access to the file was denied "The file at file:///storage/extSdCard/PhotoWebsite/index.html is not readable. It may have been removed, moved, or file permissions may be preventing access"
I have searched quite a bit, and tried various addresses, including localhost, localhost/mnt, content:, etc., etc., but nothing seems to work.
Ultimately I want to have a Bookmark in Chrome where I can view my website offline when necessary, but this seems to be more complex than would appear necessary.
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.
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).
I have an Android application that is a TabHost with a WebView. I use it to load a specific html file that has a text field in its bottom part. When I touch the html textfield, the soft keyboard pops up, and hides the textfield, so that I cannot see what I have typed.
