Swap the TextView out with an EditText.

1. Binding resources programmatically

Hi -

I'd like to know if its possible, from within a program, to get the id
of each resource in a particular res/ directory?

As an example, let's assume I'm building a method that will change the
background image every 20 seconds. I'd like the method to:

1. get the id's of every image in the res/drawable directory,
2. store the ids of those images in an array and
3. cycle through the array changing the background image every 20

In code, it would look something like:

int [] drawableIDs = null;
String [] drawableNames = null;
// get a listing of all the resource names in the 'drawable' directory
drawableNames = getFileNamesFromResDirectory("drawable");

// return an array of resource IDs
drawableIDs = getMatchingResourceIDs( drawableNames );

Now, I don't care if it's exactly like the above. I just need to:

1. determine the contents of a res/ directory and
2. gain access to the id of each resource in the directory AND
3. do (1) and (2) in code.

If (1) and (2) are combined in a single method, fine. If they are in
distinct methods, that's also fine.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Jake


2. dinamically textline in SimpleAdapter


I'm junior in andoid programming.
I would like to make a application in which there is an edit text and
if you write in a number and press a button, it would dinamically show
as many textview lines as the given number. The problem is that I
cannot number the textview lines. For example, if I write ten in the
edit text and press the button than number 9 will appear at the
beginning of all the lines. Could you help me with this problem?

My codes:

The whole project:


package com.novoda;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.HashMap;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.SimpleAdapter;

public class DynamicListItems extends ListActivity {

        private static final String ITEM_KEY = "key";
        ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>> list = new
ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>>();
        private EditText newValue;
        private SimpleAdapter notes;
        private int szam = 0;
        private int[] tomb = new int[10];
        private String[] key = new String[10];

        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

                newValue = (EditText) findViewById(;

                notes = new SimpleAdapter(
                                new String[] { ITEM_KEY },
                                new int[] { });

                Button ib = (Button) findViewById(;

                ib.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                        public void onClick(View view) {
                                try {
                                        szam = 
                                        HashMap<String, String> item = new 
HashMap<String, String>();
                                        for(int i = 0;i < szam;i++){
                                                item.put(ITEM_KEY, i+". line");

                                } catch (NullPointerException e) {
