Update/alter Android Preferences dynamicaly

 Hi, I have tried to find a way to update the Android Preferences

Under the /res/xml directory I have placed a XML file with
CheckBoxPreference elements. During application usage some of the
preferences CheckBoxPreference elements may vary in numbers. Sometimes
there may be 10 items and at other times there may be 35.

I have tried to place the XML file in the /assets diectory (where read
and write is possible) and then tried to replace the
R.xml.<XMLFileName> in the
addPreferenceFromResource(R.xml.<XMLFileName>) with the Assets file -
but that won't work.

Is it in anyway possible to write to, during runtime programmatically,
the XML files placed in the /res directory - and if - how do we do

Is it possible - programmatically - to create and delete the entries
in the preferences - thereby omitting the XML file?

Any help is appreciated.

Nope. All /res/ content is read-only.

Sure. You have a PreferenceActivity, I presume? In onCreate() you should be
able to create and all the preferences your heart desires.

1. android.bluetooth.a2dp.intent.action.SINK_STATE_CHANGED

HI everybody,

im currently looking for the way that my app knows when the phone has
being paired and connected to a bluetooth headset device.

I read something about this intent, but not on the Reference
documentation of http://developer.android.com


is this actually working, is it officially supported.

I mean, can we just register a broadcastreceiver to handle this
intent , check for the EXTRA_STATE string extra to see if it equals
STATE_CONNECTED and be sure that the phone is now connected with a
bluetooth headset device ???

What about this BluetoothA2dpService class?? There is no official
documentation about this, everything i found i from code snippets of
the android OS source code.

What do you guys think about this?
