Android :: Strings Generated By Substring Not Treated As Hard Coded Strings

Nov 21, 2010

Dear all, I'm making a simple file decoder for Android 2.2 that needs to find the filename of the encoded file from a header. This filename should then be used as the filename for the decoded file (as you would expect).The filename is identified by the substring name=, so the actual name starts 5 places after that. The line is read by a BufferedReader and temporarily stored in currLine.For some reason I can't understand nor find on the web, Strings do not always seem to be Strings.Gives no output file, nor an IO exception. The string is parsed properly though: from the System.out debugging lines.

Android :: Most Speed-efficient Way To Hard Code Map Of Strings To Strings?

Aug 19, 2010

I've got a map of about 500 entries. Strings are all very short (less than 5 chars).Its read-only data I want to read once at app-startup. What's the best way to store this so that loading this data is fast?I've tried storing the data in a CSV in res/raw but this takes about 700ms to parse on my N1, so I'm hoping there's a faster way.

Is it possible to reference other strings inside of strings.xml ?

Something of the form...

(If it did exist, there would of course be problems of circular, infinite definitions, etc. to beware of).

Android :: Can One Combine Android Resource Strings Into New Strings?

Aug 31, 2010

by which the resource "bar" becomes an alias for the resource named "foo".What I would for my app is a possibility to combine an existing resource prefix with different suffixes,where the resource "bar" would yield the string "foobar". Its clear that '+' doesn't work here but is there some other option to achieve such a string concatenation, so that one could define a bunch of string resources that have a common prefix?I realize of course that I could do such resource string concatenation at runtime but defining them statically in the resources would seem so much more elegant and simpler.

Android :: Switching Content Providers For Same Content URI

Aug 12, 2009

This may seem like a stupid question but I need to be sure. I was wondering if it was possible to pro-grammatically change the Content Provider used when making a query given a Content URI. The reason being I need to know if it's possible to force the Calendar/Contacts applications to read from a different database via a different Content Provider temporarily while my application is running, so that I can reuse those applications to display my own data. Since the Content URI s are hard coded in each of these applications the only way it might be possible is if we could somehow temporarily change the Content Provider used for a given URI. I know this probably isn't possible, I just need to show it isn't. Could someone confirm this can't be done?

Android :: External Strings.xml

Feb 8, 2010

Is it possible to have an external strings.xml or something like that?I'd like to translate my application into several different languages, but the apk would become to large if I include all languages.I would instead like to be able to load languages on demand (from an external URL) and store them on the SD card.Is that possible in any way? How could I in that case use the new language?

Android :: XML Syntax For Strings?

Oct 8, 2010

In my XML values strings code, I have a string with some text that I want to have only a few of the words in color. I also want to have a new line for some of the text.

I can do things like: < b> my bold text < /b> and that works (leading space added for this post).

I try to tag the text with color but no color shows up and there are no errors.


I also try adding a new line - I've tried things like:
< LF> some text, space at beginning only for this post < /LF>
< CR> this didn't work either < /CR>
< p> some text, space at beginning only for this post < p>

But, no new paragraph / new line, carriage rtn happens.

Android : Content Provider - No Link Between Content Provider And Its CONTENT_URI Declared In Another Class

Mar 1, 2010

I am having a hard time understanding content providers. In the notepad example and others, the content provider never even declares its CONTENT_URI anywhere inside itself, yet the docs say to publicly declare this. It's declared in a different class. So when an activity queries a content provider with a CONTENT_URI, how does Android know which one I want. I see no link between a content provider and its CONTENT_URI declared in another class.

I also don't how to think about intents and content providers. I know that you don't call an intent on a content provider. But an activity queries a content provider without an intent, and an activity has a mimetype attribute in the manifest that would seem to tie it to a content provider.

Android :: Creating Strings And Arrays

Sep 29, 2010

I am trying to create a information based application, I have 92 subjects, for these subjects I have 92 map locations and maybe as much as 400 url links. Currently I have created a class for each map location and a class for each url link, but this would mean I would have in excess of 500 classes, so what I want to do is split the subjects in four catergories ie. listview of about 23 in four tabs which I have done and create a class that gets the url based on the selection the use makes and do the same for the map locations.Do I need to put these in a xml using the id method and how do you call individual entries, i.e. would I need 500 Android:id is there an easier way?

Android :: How To Handle Thousands Of Strings ?

Oct 4, 2010

Maybe some of you has an application with quotations or jokes or something. I would like to make a similar. So how can I get the i. element of my string array (which is in arrays.xml)? I don't want to load the whole array in a String[], because it can be too big. Or it's not a good idea to put them into arrays.xml? How do you handle thousands of strings?

Android :: Using SAXParser To Get List Of Strings To Arraylist

Jun 21, 2010

I'm trying to parse a web service response using SAXParser and get certain values, store them into an arraylist, then display them in a listview. Example XML being returned from web service:

Here is my SAXHandler class:
public class SAXHandler extends DefaultHandler {
private boolean outertag = false;
private boolean mytag = false;
ArrayList<String> alist;
public ArrayList<String> getList(){
return this.alist;
} @Override
public void startDocument() throws SAXException {
} @Override
public void endDocument() throws SAXException{
} //@Override
public void startElement(String namespaceURI, String localName, String qName, Attributes atts) throws SAXException {
if (localName.equals("ArrayOfString")){ this.outertag=true;
}else if (localName.equals("string")){ this.mytag=true;
} }
public void characters(char ch[], int start, int length) {
if (this.mytag){ String s = new String(ch, start, length);
} }
@Override public void endElement(String namespaceURI, String localName, String qName) throws SAXException {
if (localName.equals("ArrayOfString")){ this.outertag=false;
}else if (localName.equals("string")){ this.mytag=false;
} } }

And here's my method calling and returing my web service:
try{ URL url = new URL("xxxxxxx");
SAXParserFactory spf = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
SAXParser sp = spf.newSAXParser();
XMLReader xr = sp.getXMLReader();
SAXHandler SAXHandler = new SAXHandler();
xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));
ArrayList<String> stateList = SAXHandler.getList();
aa = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, stateList);
I keep getting an exception and I don't know why. Can anyone give me a hand?

Android :: Efficient Mapping Of Strings To Ints

Dec 29, 2009

Currently I'm using a HashMap to map the strings to int and the int values need to be frequently accessed. I'm looking for a better way to do this if possible with minimal object creation, and preferable being able to store the values as primitive ints without wrapping them with the Integer class. (Basically, the reverse of the SparseArray's int->object mapping.)

Android :: Different Hint Strings For Searchable Activities?

Oct 29, 2010

I am supporting search in my app, I'd like to display a unique hint in the search box depending on what activity is being viewed.

To that end, I have a two different searchable.xml files in my xml folder:


When I reference searchable.xml, everything works as expected. The second searchable xml file has the same contents as the first, but this does not work:


Pressing the search key does not display the search box. If I just reference the first searchable instead, it works fine:


Again, both have the same content. It looks like there is a dependency on the name "searchable.xml" within android?

If we're not allowed to have searchables named anything but searchable.xml, how do we specify different hint strings for different activities?

For example:

Android :: SharedPreferences Bug When Writing Strings With Ampersands In Them

Mar 6, 2009

I've just tracked down a weird bug in our app where SharedPreferences were failing between power cycles of the phone.

It turns out that one of the strings we were saving had an "&" in it. When I look at the xml that is being persisted I see that this is being encoded as && instead of just &

This means that when you come to read the settings back you don't get any values at all. Is this a known issue? I see lots of posts about preferences dissappearing, but nothing about this.

I compile with -O3 and already use arm-eabi-strip -g to remove debugging symbols, but when I do strings all the names of the functions/methods are still readable.
