My application has make a copy of the img files form the assets folder
to the /data/data/pkg/files/ folder.

(ps. Actually I hope to copy the files to a cache folder, but anyway,
the data folder is fine.)

I need my webview to access the img file form the data folder.

However, I always get file for this execution.

Can any one tell me how to do this?

If anyother suggestion will be appreciate.

Thankx a lot.

1. Android 2.0: Browser/WebView can no longer load fonts?


I have a web page that uses a custom font, using this CSS piece of

2. Connection dropped / app sleep on device standby?

Hey Guys,

I am looking for some help. I am seeing something odd happening when
my device goes to sleep (Hero) when the device sleeps a process which
I have in the background seems to stop picking up data from it's
server. I can't work out of the service is going to sleep or if the
network connection is being dropped (3G & WifI) can anyone shed some
light on the status of the phone when it goes into standby mode (the
user presses the power button)? What happens if a thread that is
currently sleeping wakes up and makes a network request for example?

Thanks in advance,
