Questions:

I want to get file name from sdcard file path.
e.g. :/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/1414240995236.jpg I want get 1414240995236.jpg
I have written the code to fetch the same but it is not working. Please help.
Below is my code:

@Override
protected void onActivityResult( int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
{
    if ( requestCode == CAPTURE_IMAGE_ACTIVITY_REQUEST_CODE) {

        if ( resultCode == RESULT_OK) {

            /*********** Load Captured Image And Data Start ****************/

            String imageId = convertImageUriToFile( imageUri,CameraActivity);


            //  Create and excecute AsyncTask to load capture image

            new LoadImagesFromSDCard().execute(""+imageId);

            /*********** Load Captured Image And Data End ****************/


        } else if ( resultCode == RESULT_CANCELED) {

            Toast.makeText(this, " Picture was not taken ", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        } else {

            Toast.makeText(this, " Picture was not taken ", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
    }
}


/************ Convert Image Uri path to physical path **************/

public static String convertImageUriToFile ( Uri imageUri, Activity activity )  {

    Cursor cursor = null;
    int imageID = 0;

    try {

        /*********** Which columns values want to get *******/
        String [] proj={

        cursor = activity.managedQuery(

                imageUri,         //  Get data for specific image URI

        int size = cursor.getCount();

i think you can use substring methode to get name of file from the path string.

    String path=":/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/1414240995236.jpg";//it contain your path of image..im using a temp string..
    String filename=path.substring(path.lastIndexOf("/")+1);

The easiest solution is to use Uri.getLastPathSegment():

String filename = uri.getLastPathSegment();

Simple and easy way to get File name

File file = new File("/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/1414240995236.jpg"); 
String strFileName = file.getName();

After add this code and print strFileName you will get strFileName = 1414240995236.jpg

Old thread but thought I would update;

 File theFile = .......
 String theName = theFile.getName();  // Get the file name
 String thePath = theFile.getAbsolutePath(); // Get the full

FilenameUtils to the rescue:

String filename = FilenameUtils.getName("/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/1414240995236.jpg");

Answers:

you can use the Common IO library which can get you the Base name of your file and the Extension.

 String fileUrl=":/storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/1414240995236.jpg";
      String fileName=FilenameUtils.getBaseName(fileUrl);
           String    fileExtention=FilenameUtils.getExtension(fileUrl);
//this will return filename:1414240995236 and fileExtention:jpg
