 I'm trying to access "android:versionName" in another XML resource
file. I tried to use @android/versionName and @android:versionName,
but neither work. Can anyone help me out?

 Afaik, the versionName attribute is not a string you can reference
from other resources.

However you can programatically retrieve it like this:
  PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();
  PackageInfo pi = pm.getPackageInfo(getPackageName(), 0);
  mVersion = pi.versionName;

For example I do that to dynamically inject it in my html about page.

2. Accessing attributes of child views

I am quite new to Java, let alone Android. I am stuck with a problem
that I encountered while instrumenting (using the instrumentation
framework of android) the code of a Android project. I have a ListView
and using the getTouchables() API I have store the view in a
ArrayList. When in debug session, I saw that each view has children
(mChildren) when expanded I could see that there is a "ImageView" and
"TextView" present. when the "TextView" is expanded, I could access
the mText variable which contains the text value I am looking for. In
brief, the value I am looking for, when looking at the "variables"
window of the debug perspective of Eclipse, is present at "myview-

Here "myview" is the name of the object of View class.

how do I access/ read the content of the "value" variable?

Please let me know if you need any info in this regard?

Thank you
