How to access android default images ( for example image for seekbar’s thumb when is pressed ) from java code ? I am changing thumb but and I copy from platforms/android-12/data/res/drawable-hdpi into my drawable-hdpi folder in project, but it is platform dependent ( color of item, size and so on). Can someone show me how to access this android default item from java code ?
Android contains a number of standard resources, such as styles, themes, and layouts. To access these resource, qualify your resource reference with the android package name. For example,
ImageView img = (ImageView)findViewById(R.id.imgView1); img.setImageResource(android.R.drawable.ic_media_play);
Note: but you can only access the resources which are available in android.R packages..’
Look at here android.R
In general, in order to access the Android resources using code, you should use android.R.[whatever you want i.e. layout, drawable, etc].
Hope this helps,
