Android :: Opening Local HTML File Via Browser Intent

Aug 31, 2009

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);

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?
neither mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about");
or
mWebView.loadUrl("file:///raw/about.htmal");
works.
What's the correct syntax or arrangement.

Android :: Open A Local App File In Another App Via An Intent

Nov 8, 2010

I don't want to store said file on the sdcard in this case. The file also cannot be storage directly in the apps local files directory. It needs to be in a subdirectory, so it cannot write the file using openFileOutput() and MODE_WORLD_READABLE.

The app may download files small files like pdfs and store them locally in a subdirectory. I would like to be able to have the user open these files if they have an app that can open them.

For example here is an intent for sending a pdf:

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

path being something like: /data/data/packagename/files/subdir/example.pdf

That intent will open a pdf viewer, but the viewer is unable to open the file. I assume this is a permissions issue. I tried Mark Murphy's suggestion here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/4e55d869213483a9/b7270078ac1a2744?lnk=raot of using Runtime.getRuntime().exec("chmod 755 " + fileName); but it didn't make any difference. He also suggested a Content Provider but I would like to avoid it if I can because it seems like a lot just to get this file over to another app.

If the content provider is the only option, do I have to save the file to the content provider or can I just use the content provider as a pass through to get it to the other app when I need to?

Android :: 2.2 - Opening SWF File In Browser Through Code

Jul 5, 2010

I have a swf file on the sdcard and I wrote a html file flash.html with the swf file embeded. The only way to open it now is:
1) open the browser
2) type in file:///sdcard/flash.html The swf runs fine.

But if use the code list below:
Uri uri = Uri.parse("file:///sdcard/flash.html");
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri);
startActivity(intent); It shows the error: The application has stopped unexpectly.

I also tried the following code using:
WebView: WebView browser = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.list_web);
browser.loadUrl("file:///sdcard/flash.html");

The Webview showed up, but the area should start the swf is empty. So is there a way to open the html through code? I also think if there is a way to open the android browser using ACTION_VIEW by a simple html then reset the URL to be "file:///sdcard/ flash.html" through code?

Android :: Intent Not Opening Correct Activity

Aug 22, 2010

I'm having a struggle understanding why my intent is not working. I basically just copied paste from other examples in my code that work perfectly like this. Here it is:

Intent addIntent = new Intent(v.getContext(), thenNnowMode.class);
Bundle w = new Bundle(); String activityName = "addPic";
w.putString("activity", activityName);
w.putParcelable("bitmap", selectedDeviceImage);
//a.putString("id", picId); addIntent.putExtras(w);
startActivity(addIntent); finish();

The intent is opening a different class called thenNnow.class instead of thenNnowMode.class and I have no idea why this is happening. I've tried sending the intent to open other activities other than thenNnowMode but it always opens thenNnow. Am I missing some silly syntax mistake? It's so strange, its the same code. I am not sure if it's relevant but the thenNnowMode class uses the device camera

Android :: How Browser Decides Html Size On 2.1?

May 20, 2010

We have one html page whose backgroud is an image(1024px*600px) with no-repeat. We displayed it in Browser rightly on 1.6 HVGA(160) and WVGA(240) emulator and scrollbar displaed on both sides. But we got different result when testing on 2.1 HVGA(160) and WVGA(240) emulator. On 2.1 HVGA(160), the background image is scaled smaller and we saw large wide margin on the right. On 2.1WVGA (240), There are two margins on right and bottom sides. There is no scrollbar displayed on 2.1. And we put few small element in our html page.

Android :: Develop An Own Browser For Droid / Parse HTML , JS And Co.?

Jul 30, 2010

Like the title says, I am thinking about developing my own browser for Android devices.

My first thought is to know what kind of possibilities I have, before I begin creating my software architecture. Are there any (open?) Browser Engines you could include into your library and reuse them?
(There are some unknown browsers in the Android Market and I can't imagine they implemented the parsing).

Furthermore: If there IS something like I've described before, is it possible to modify (or "fine tune") the render methods? This is one of the most interesting points I guess.

And to end this question and catch the else-case: What would be the alternative way to begin?
[I guess this is not only interesting to know for mobile developers, also for desktop software developers]

Abbreviated version of this question: I want to develop my own Android Browser. How to begin?

Android :: Can Browser Load From Local Server To View Pages?

Apr 6, 2009

Can one use an Android phone to access basically local (think intranet for example) web servers to view pages? I ask this question because some cell phones with some phone network appear to use a special server to funnel cell phone requests thru and that the server offloads from the browser part of what a browser normally does. I get the impression that the Opera mobile browser works this way.I want to talk to local devices that serve web pages and connect directly to them from phones. Does the Chrome browser in Android have the full functionality that Chrome has on a PC? Can it parse HTML, do XMLHttpRequest, and otherwise act like a modern browser?

Android :: Adding Bookmark To Saved HTML Files In Browser

Nov 20, 2009

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.

I personally own an Android based phone running 2.1, but I can't seem to get the HTML 5 tag to work.
