Android :: Read Text File As Resource

Sep 14, 2010

I am trying to read a file "words.txt" from a resource. It is a very simple, but large (2 MB), text file that I want to read line by line. I have put the file into /res/raw/words.txt, and try to open it with the following code:

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

However, I get a java.io.IOException. This is not a "resource not found" exception, so the resource is opened correctly, but the readLine() produces the error.

I tried using the InputStream itself, with the result that read() produces -1, which stands for EOF, as if the file was empty.

Android :: Read Text Raw Resource File?

Nov 3, 2010

I have a text file added as a raw resource. The text file contains text like:

a) IF APPLICABLE LAW REQUIRES ANY WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF DELIVERY.


b) NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY VIRTUAL ORIENTEERING, ITS DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS, AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF ANY WARRANTY PROVIDED HEREIN.

CODE:....

The text get's showed but after each line I get a strange character [] How can I remove that character ? I think it's New Line.

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 : Get Context To Be Able To Get Resource So Read?

Nov 3, 2010

I need to get the context to be able to get a resource. Like this:

getApplicationContext().getResources().openRawResource( R.raw.texture );


I've seen the getApplicationContext() in the android documentation but when I try to use it in the above code it doesn't work - it doesn't exist.

I can send the context through functions to get it to where it's needed and it works. However, I find it cumbersome to send a variable through many functions that doesn't need or use it. Then I would rather just try to get it in the function that do. But the getApplicationContext(), as in the android documentation, doesn't work - http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/Context.html

So how do I get the context so I can read resources? Or are my only option to send it through all my functions?

Android :: Read Resource Based On The Current Theme?

Nov 22, 2009

In my case I need to be able apply a color conditionally (for example based if an item is read or unread) so I need to be able to read the "read" and "unread" colors from the current theme and apply them appropriately.

I gave the color special attribute name in my attr xml file and assigned it different values in 2 different themes. if I do getResources().getColorStateList( <my attribute resource ID>) it fails because it can't find the resource. It seems like something needs to first resolve the attribute Id to the Id of the resource in the current theme, but I am not sure what does that.

Android : Can SAX Use A Local Resource XML File?

Jul 26, 2010

All of the android examples for XmlPullParser pull from a local resource file, and all of the SAX examples pull the XML from a URL. I've been told SAX is faster, so I'm trying to use that to pull data from a local resource file (res/xml/thefile.xml)

The example code I'm working off of is here. So in that example, the code I want to change is:

URL url = new URL("http://example.com/example.xml");
...
xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));

Instead of using URL, I want to use getXml(R.xml.thefile)
Is that possible, or does SAX need to get data from a URL?

Android :: Instantiating A Layout From An Xml File / Resource Id

Jan 28, 2009

I'm interested in instantiating a LinearLayout object from an xml file that has a LinearLayout file configuration. I want to do this within a method of my Activity. I tried findViewById() but that returned null. I've made sure that the LinearLayout id is the one I'm passing. Note that this layout isn't part of my screen, it's stand-alone, so I want to build a LinearLayout object from the xml.

Android :: Loading Raw Resource Text File / Out Of Memory Error

Sep 15, 2010

I use this method couples of occasion to load text file to display as help file. But I don't know why the following code didn't work. It seems to hang and logcat says "OutOfMemoryError"? All I did was break this out as an separate activity.

---xml---
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/helptab"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<TextView android:id="@+id/helptext"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
</ScrollView>

---code---
import java.io.DataInputStream;
import java.io.IOException; import java.io.InputStream;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class Help extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.help);
InputStream iFile = getResources().openRawResource(R.raw.help);
try { TextView helpText = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.helptext);
String strFile = inputStreamToString(iFile);
helpText.setText(strFile);
} catch (Exception e) {
} }
public String inputStreamToString(InputStream is) throws IOException {
StringBuffer sBuffer = new StringBuffer();
DataInputStream dataIO = new DataInputStream(is);
String strLine = "";
while ((strLine = dataIO.readLine()) != "") {
sBuffer.append(strLine + " ");
} dataIO.close();
is.close();
return sBuffer.toString();

Android :: Unbundled / Copy Raw Resource Binary File To Sd Card

Mar 2, 2009

I'm trying to unbundle a binary file (sound1.ogg) and store it on the sdcard.So it starts out as a raw resource (R.raw.sound1) and should end up as a copy named /sdcard/ mydir/sound1.ogg I wrote a method called something like copyResourceToFile() and did a copy via file descriptors / streams. But the target file just isn't right.If I do a buffered read, the target file ends up being WAY bigger - like 10x bigger.If I just do a byte-by-byte read for the size of the original file, the target file is the right size but is not the same file. Is there a simpler (well, correct/working) way to do this thing?

Android :: Resource Not Found Errors For Images - Button Selector XML File

Jan 5, 2010

My 1.6 app works fine in both portrait and landscape modes on the default HVGA device. I'm now trying to support it on QVGA devices and am encountering build-time errors I don't understand. In my res/drawable-ldpi directory I have:

startstopin.png startstopout.png and a selector file
startstopbuttonimageselector.xml
which contains:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable-ldpi/startstopin" />
<!-- pressed --> <item android:drawable="@drawable-ldpi/startstopout" />
<!-- default --> </selector>

I've 'fixed project properties' and done a 'clean' build, to no avail. The error I get is:
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'drawable' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopin').
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'drawable' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopout').
I've tried adding a layout file in res/layout-small that explicitly references this selector file, but this triggers a similar build error and fails to address the original problem:
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'src' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopbuttonimageselector').

Android :: How To Read Text File Via FTP

Jan 10, 2010

I am creating an application for the android, and would like it to be able to read a text file via anonymous FTP. I've tried URLConnection, but it doesn't seam to be working. After some Google searching it appears that URLConnection doesn't always work with some FTP servers. All of the java FTP connection libraries I've found require you to download the file to a local location before reading it. However I would like to have the same functionality as URLConnection in that I can just use the following similar code...
