Android :: Retrieve Contact Photo Type


Is there any way to retrieve the data type of a contact's photo? (e.g. "image/png" or "image/jpeg"). Using the Contacts Provider I can read the photo byte array only. In this case can we get the image type from the image stream?

Android :: Retrieve Photo From Chooser - Save To Directory
I'm writing an application where images are read from the filesystem based on a certain naming scheme and file structure. To add images to the application, I need to be able to add to this file structure. I need to be able to select from existing images and copy the image to its new location.

I've set up a chooser, as follows: i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT, null); i.setType("image/jpg"); startActivityForResult(Intent.createChooser(i, "Select photo"), PICK_FROM_FILE);

When I get the result using this line: URI uri = URI.create(outputIntent.getData().toString());

the value of uri looks like this: content://media/external/images/media/2

How do I transform this into a jpg file?

Android :: Retrieve Contact Name From Phone Number
I would like to retrieve the name of a contact associated with an incoming telephone number. As I process the incoming number in the broascastreceiver having a String with the name of the incoming caller would help my project greatly. I would think this involves a query using the sql WHERE clause as a filter, but do I need to sort the contacts? An example or hint would be of great assistance.

Android :: Retrieve Contact Phone Number From URI
I am trying to get the contact's phone number after I have retrieved their ID number from the built-in activity. However, whenever I query the database using the cursor in my code below -- I get zero rows returned even though there is a mobile number for the contact I have selected. Can anyone point me in a better direction or show an example of how to get the contact's phone number AFTER getting their userID?

My code:

private Runnable getSMSRunnable() {
return new Runnable() {
public void run() {
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI);
startActivityForResult(i, CONTACTS_REQUEST_CODE);......................

Android :: Changing Contact Type?
All my contacts from my old phone seem to have been saved as Google contacts. But when I have been adding new contacts to the phone the past few months, for some reason, I always choose to not add them as Google contacts so they weren't synced to my Gmail. When I check my GMail contacts, all my old phone contacts are there, but not my new ones. Is it possible for me to change existing contacts not saved as Google contacts as Google contacts? Otherwise, when I do hard resets, I only get the same contacts from my old phone, and none of the new ones since then.

Android : How Do I Load A Contact Photo?
I'm having trouble loading a photo for a contact in Android. I've googled for an answer, but so far have come up empty. Does anyone have an example of querying for a Contact, then loading the Photo?

So, given a contactUri which comes from an Activity result called using

startActivityForResult(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI),PICK_CONTACT_REQUEST)

content://com.android.contacts/data/1557

The loadContact(..) works fine. However when I call the getPhoto(...) method, I get a null value for the photo InputStream. It is also confusing because the URI values are different. The contactPhotoUri evaluates to: See the comments inline in the code below. Code...

Android :: List Contact Type SIM Phone / Google
I'm aiming to develop an application on Android 1.5 that is required at one point to list all contacts and display the type of contact ie SIM, Phone or Google. I can easily list all the contacts by using Cursor curAllContacts = getContentResolver().query(People.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); And looping through the cursor and I can use code like the sample below to get fields of data.My question is, is there any field in the people table or a related table that holds a value to define where the contact came from (SIM, Phone or Google)?

Android :: Pick Photo From Gallery To Attach With Contact?
My application needs to import some photos from Gallery. Indeed, the application groups several persons. I want to attach a photo picked from Gallery to each person. Do I need to develop a activity like edit Contacts? This involves developing the display of images in a grid. Or can I use a provider or something-like to avoid to develop a Gallery-like with memory leak?

HTC EVO 4G :: Facebook Contact Photo Import
Left the Pre for the Evo and so far I really like the new phone. One thing Web OS did was import all my FB contacts, including profile pic, into my contacts. Loved it.

I brought over my contacts from the Pre - the FB profile pics did not migrate.

Is there a way to make this happen on the Evo - with or without a separate app? I'm talking about syncing my contacts with the FB app or something like that.

I read this somewhere..."The FB app can sync Facebook profile photos into your existing contact list."

Android :: Photo URI Of Contact Image - Using With Simple Cursor Adapter
I want to write a short app for getting some info from contacts, the first list screen I have should display the user Image (or an Image from resources if no suchimage exists) an the user display name. The problem is I don't seem to find a query that will provide me with the display name and a user id And the image URI in the same query. Moreover I'm aware of the fact that if the user has no image and the URI is empty or null i will most likely to get an exception while the adapter calls setViewImage(). Is there a simple way around it or should I override the setViewImage() or bindView() methods?

Also about the query, any chance I can make a single query for contact URI, _ID, contact_id and display name? my current queries: To get the contacts:
private Cursor getContacts() { Uri uri = ContactsContract.Data.CONTENT_URI;
String[] projection = new String[] ContactsContract.Data._ID,ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID,
ContactsContract.Data.DISPLAY_NAME };
String selection = ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE + " = ?";
String[] selectionArgs = {ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.StructuredPostal.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE};
String sortOrder = ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + " ASC";
return managedQuery(uri, projection, selection, selectionArgs, sortOrder); }

If I have a contact id and want the image:
int _id = m_cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID);
//try to retrieve the photo, if exists.
Uri photoUri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI,
m_cursor.getLong(_id)); InputStream is = ContactsContract.Contacts.openContactPhotoInputStream(m_context.getContentResolver(), photoUri);
Here I get from a cursor with _ID column the id and then creating the uri, I know I can get a row number but I'm not familiar enough with contentProvider to know how to join tables to get it all in one query (if even possible).

Samsung Captivate :: Change Contact Type To Google?
All of my contacts were transferred over from my iPhone by the AT&T store. They are now all on the SIM card, except for a few that I've copied onto the phone. None of these contacts are syncing with Gmail. After some researching it appears as though only contacts of type Google will sync with gmail. So, how do I convert my existing contacts to Google contacts? I can't seem to find anyway to do that.

HTC Desire :: Can One Select Which Facebook Photo To Appear In Contact
I just bought this phone. I was playing with the contacts and was wondering: can one select the facebook photo you want for each contact?

I have linked the facebook profile to my contact. I can choose "facebook" for the contact's photo, but I have no control over which photo is displayed.

Can I:

a) select a specific facebook foto?
b) save a specific facebook foto from the contact's facebook pictures and set the saved photo as the contact's picture?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Display Contact Type During Call Instead Of Number
I'm using Android 2.1 on the Galaxy S.I have multiple numbers defined per contact, e.g. mobile, work, home. Whenever I make or receive a call, the name is shown, and the phone number is shown underneath the name instead of the type that the number is associated with.Any way to show the type (mobile, work, home) instead of the number itself? Otherwise are we supposed to memorize which numbers belong to work, mobile, or home?I don't even see any icons, or colour changes that would signify one of the types.

HTC EVO 4G :: Contact Icon / Improving Quality Of Photo In Caller ID
I was setting up some photos for the Photo Caller ID function for incoming calls and was rather disappointed at the quality of the image that comes up. I either add an image to the contact in the People app or I go to the gallery and chose to "Set as" a contact icon. The picture pops up and you are given a little square crop/zoom tool to chose the portion of the picture that you want as you icon/photo caller ID. When I stretch the square OUT as big as possible to crop and then set the image with the contact, the caller ID image that comes up is good. However, any cropping/zooming is significantly Degrades/Pixelates the image that is chosen.

I'm not using the FULL 8MB resolution (set to 5MP) for the camera and I know if you crop and zoom any image, the more you zoom the worse the quality of the picture, But the 5MP shots I have should be MORE THAN sufficient to produce a little square of a photo caller ID. I had photo caller ID that popped up on my Palm Centro with photos was cropped to 320 x 320 and saved with LOW resolution and those photos were very clear. Even with the crop and zoom that is required to produce the contact/photo caller ID image, the 5MP photos I am using should be more than sufficient to produce a clear image. Is there a fix/trick for the quality to improve? Here we have this big beautiful screen and you crop a nice-sized 5MP picture for a tiny square caller ID photo and the quality is horrible.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Sync Facebook Photo With Contact
I just rooted my phone and loaded a 2.1 ROM (Damage Control v2.08). Everything seems to be working great. I went into my contacts (reloaded through MS Exchange) and noticed that some of the Facebook photos were auto linked to a contact, but some were not. I am guessing the ones that did not do not have a name that matches exactly did not load.With the stock phone, I was able to manually select the Facebook friend I wanted to associate with my contact and it added the picture.With 2.1, when I try to manually select a Facebook contact through "Link Facebook Profile", the screen doesn't list anyone to choose from.It is just blank and says "no matches found".Has anyone else had this problem? I'm trying to figure out how to manually link people. I can log into Facebook with no problem and everything there seems to work.

HTC Droid Eris :: Contact Type Drop Down Menu Only Lists Phone
Got a HTC Droid Eris the other day and absolutely love it.However, when adding a new contact on the phone, the drop bown menu box only lists "Phone" and does NOT give a "Google" or "Exchange" option as is indicated on p. 72 of the pdf "User Guide for Droid HTC Eris" by Verizon. I have examined 3 others Droid Eris phones of friends/family, and on each of their phones when adding a new contact the drop down menu box does list the "Google" option in addition to the "Phone" option.The problem with not being able to select "Google" as the contact type is that the contact information does not "sync" with the Gmail "Contacts List" online.
