Hi all,

Today a new version of the library JavocSoft Android Toolbox have been released, in this case with a new module that integrates the Google Drive API. This allows to use Android ToolBox - Google DriveGoogle Drive within your applications in a really easy way. I wanted to add this to the library long time ago but until a few weeks i could not start doing it.JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library

To know how to use it and more  goto https://github.com/javocsoft/javocsoft-toolbox/wiki#google-drive.

As a brief, the list of operations that the new module for Google Drive allows are:

  • Create a file (with the posibility of creating it in the secure application folder).
  • Search for files.
  • Get a file given its name or title
  • Get the file contents.
  • Pin a file (this makes Google Drive to store a copy of its metadata locally in the Device).
  • Trash/Un-trash a file.
  • Be notified when a file changes (see TBDrive#addFileChangeListener() and TBChangeListener.java)
  • Subscribe to file changes (notifications are received even if the application is not running. See TBDrive#subscribeToFile() and TBDriveEventService.java).
  • Commit/Discard changes to a file (also be notified when Google Drive servers finish applying changes, see TBDriveEventService.java)
  • Get file contents as an String.
  • Append/Replace text to a file.
  • Get a DriveFile object from an encoded DriveId string.

As always, I hope these addition could be useful for your applications.

Hi all,

There are changes in JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library ready on the GitHub repository!. There is a bit more functionallity to it and, i am preparing Google Maps v2 integration to put a map in your application with a few lines of code, i hope i finish this soon.

JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library

The changes are:

  • Added method to show GPS settings panel, “dialog_showGPSDisabledAlert()”
  • Added DENSITY_XXXHIGH to device_getResolutionType() or unknown if not recognized.
  • Added the method location_addressInfo() to get some latitude and longitude address information.
  • Now the method “dialog_showExitConformationDialog()” allows to select if move the activity to the stack or close it.
  • Added a method “backPressedAction()” to enable the functionallity of “Press again back to exit”.
  • Added AnimationFactory class, under animation package, from Ephraim Tekle, to perform animations in a easy way. I use it and i think is quite useful.
  • Added an ImageDownloader class, under net/image package, to download image URLs in background and show them in its ImageView.
  • Added the possibility of custom Toast messages, “toast_createCustomToast()”, default ones are horrible XD.
  • Added the possibility of a custom Toast when user press the back button to exit if function backPressedAction() is used.
  • Added the method location_distance to know the distance in meters from one Map point to other using the Haversine algorithm.
  • The “dialog_showToastAlert()” method now allows to choose between system default toast and a custom one.
  • Now the method “share_newSharingIntent()” allows to filter applications using more than one application filter.
  • On Interstitial Ad now user clicks on it can be cached.

I hope these changes can help you a bit more.
