Android :: Share Raw Resource Between Apk's

Nov 17, 2010

I have an apk (App1) that has a raw resource (res/raw/mytextfile.txt) and I would like to read that text file from another apk (App2). I define a content provider in App1 and I override the openFile(Uri, String) method as follows:

CODE:.......

App2 does the following to try to get access to mytextfile.txt:

CODE:.........

However, when I read and write out the contents of the BufferedReader, I get way more than just the contents of mytextfile.txt.

I played with this some more and found that the file desriptor returned to App2 is pointing to the App1 apk file. I wrote out the contents of the BufferedReader to a file and did a binary comparison to App1.apk. The two files were identical.

Android :: How To Use Resource Within A Custom Xml Resource File?

Aug 3, 2010

I have an XML resource file:
<resources> <section>
<category value="1" resourceId="@xml/categoryData1" />
<category value="2" resourceId="@xml/categoryData2" />
<category value="3" resourceId="@xml/categoryData3" />
</section> </resources>
Using XmlPullParser, on the START_TAG, I can use:
int value = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "value", 0);
to get values 1, 2, 3...however:
int resourceId = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "resourceId", 0);
doesn't work...it just yields the default value 0, or whatever I change the default value (3rd parameter) to be. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or if this is possible?

Android :: Resource ID

Sep 6, 2010

I am using the function decodeResource(Resources res, int id, BitmapFactory.Options opt).I am using it in the following way:

BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(), R.drawable.image,opt);

My question is instead of using R.drawable.image which is an image in resdrawable folder, I want to use a image from sdcard.Is it possible? How to get the resource id of an image in the sdcard?

Android :: Get Resource ID From Value

Oct 11, 2010

I do have a lot of language specific resources. There's one point in my Android apps where I do get a resource value and need to translate this value into the matching id. The value is not neccessarily in the language specific file for the current language (en/de/...). It's somewhere in there ... and it's unique.

After reading the docs and this thread "http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3476430/get-resource-id-by-passing-name-as-a-parameter-in-android" I thought that "getIdentifier(String name, String defType, String defPackage)" is the correct way to go but I can't get it to work. The result is always "0".

This code is part of an activity and I'm on Android 2.2.

Is it possible that Android doesn't take all resource files into account and searches just in the current language specific one?

For an example

CODE:....

To make things clear. I don't want to mis-use string resources as a database. It's only one part that occurs on very rare situations.

Android :: Resource For Very New Beginner?

Jul 25, 2010

I will admit - I've never had a smart phone. Never. I was going to get one last year, but waited b/c I heard 2010 was 'the year of the smart phone' - and I'm glad I waited.Though I'd have to see it in person to know for sure, but I'm almost positive that DroidX will be my first smartphone. I'm VERY excited, but I want to make sure that I'm educated enough to use it for all it's worth (ie: my mom has had every iphone, but just leared to text message last month).Is there some place/book/thread/site that I can study which would tell me about smartphones from the very most basic all the way to the more advanced? I'm a smart girl, but I have to start somewhere!

Android :: Resource IDs And SharedUserID

Jul 20, 2010

If I am not wrong with the way android:sharedUserId is intended to work, then my question is how to avoid overlapping resource IDs? appt seems to aways start IDs at the same initial value (i.e. drawables at 0x7f020000), so there will be sort of conflict or ambiguation. As for now I failed to get that cleared w/o digging in OS sources. Or I miss anything, like magic "undocumented" appt option (not that aapt is documented at all)?

Android :: Resource In Conflict

Sep 4, 2010

My application has resource conflict problem. Did some investigation, seems like all the resources within the apk file are cached after they are loaded on demand. The cache is stored in Resources.java mDrawableCache. The key to retrieve the drawable from this cache is combining the data and assertCookie fields of TypedValue class. In my application, there are 2 resources, ex. a color background and image drawable, evaluated to the SAME key value.. So just wondering, how can it happen?BTW, I am using eclair SDK.

Android :: Negative Resource Id Value

Sep 15, 2010

Is it possible that a resource id (such as a generated id for a string resource) can be a negative int?Often, when defining a method that accepts a resource id, I want the caller to be able to specify a "null" value.For primitives this is not possible, but I'm wondering whether "any negative value" may be a good approach? Alternatively I suppose it would be OK to specify the argument as an Integer and take advantage of auto-boxing.Thoughts?

Android :: Creating URI From Resource ID

Oct 3, 2010

I'm sure this is simple, but I've got myself confused over it.I have an image resource, such as R.drawable.myimage, and I want to convert this into a URI.I tried:

Uri selectedImage = Uri.parse("android.resource://com.my.package/" + resourceId);

but this just returns a NullPointer. The resourceId needs to be dynamic (so I can pass any image to it), not just a hardcoded "myImage".Any help please?

Android :: Find Out If Resource Is Used

Sep 21, 2010

I am looking for an efficient way to find out if a resource (mostly a drawable) is used in java or in an XML file.

The problem is, that on my current project the drawables are changed often and now I have some drawables, which might never be used.

Is there a tool/way to find those unused drawables without search each filename in the whole project?

Android :: How To Share Applications?

Nov 10, 2009

I did a few searches but couldn't find anything specific to what I'm talking about. My wife and I both got Droids the other day and love them. We are enjoying finding apps and all that stuff, but one thing I haven't been able to figure out is how we can share applications between us. Granted I dont want to illegally share apps with random people and friends, just between my wife. Not big into paying for 1 app 2 times so that we can share an experience. We both have ipod touch's, and we have always been able to share the apps with that by my 'authorizing' her ipod to match mine. She still has her email and all that, just we share a purchasing account. I imagine there is a backdoor way to copy apps and api's, but i dont want to get into that. I used to have a custom rom winmo and part of the appeal of the droid was it would do everything i want without having to crack it. I heard google was thinking about app sharing, and app2sd is in official development, but is there anything I can do now?
