Modify strings.xml dynamically

 Hi everyone,

I want to implement a "Settings" section in my application, and I want
that when the user selects whatever, one of the strings from
string.xml will change its value according to the user selection.
Is this possible at all? any ideas on how to implement it?

Have a great day

You cannot modify strings.xml at runtime. That file, like all resources,
is part of your digitally-signed application.

You are welcome to create your own sort of wrapper mechanism, where you
look to see if the user has changed the value and use it instead of the
string resource, but there is nothing really in Android itself that
implements that pattern for you.

There's no reason to even try this - this is what the built-in preference
classes are for.

 Thank you Mark and TreKing for your responses, both were very useful.
Now I wont try at all to modify them and the preference activity can
do what i need to
