Hi

Wondered if someone could shed any light on why my splash screen doesn't seem to appear on android.

I have replaced the placeholder pngs for icon and splash in the 3 directories in /res. The icon works fine however when I load the app in emulator I just get a white screen as the app loads in. I am using the latest build of Phonegap 9.2.

any help would be appreciated.

In your main class that inherits from DroidGap you need to call this:

super.setProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash);

in the onCreate method.

There were issues with overloading setProperty() to handle different
data types, so the type was added to the method name. If
setProperty() is not defined, use
super.setIntegerProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash) instead.

Hi

Sorry if I am being very slow here but I can't get this to work.

I have tried adding:

 super.setIntegerProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash)

into myActivity class which extends droidgap. Is this the right place? 
I get an error:

Description Resource Path Location Type
The method setIntegerProperty(String, int) is undefined for the type DroidGap myactivity.java

I also tried adding into droidgaps onCreate method but i get a similar error. 

I know nothing about JAVA so apologies if this is really nooboid issue

regards

Ade

Bryce Curtis Rocks!

adding

super.setIntegerProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash)

to my myApp.java file in src -> com -> phonegap -> myApp directory did
the trick.

I am now a happy man :-)

Thanks!

Hi 

Ok i am having no joy with this:(

Here is the method in in the relevant file (src>com.testapp>myapp.java)
   /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        super.loadUrl("file:///android_asset/www/index.html");
        super.setIntegerProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash);
    }


I get an error saying:

The method setIntegerProperty(String, int) is undefined for the type DroidGap


any ideas?

regards

Try placing

super.setIntegerProperty("splashscreen", R.drawable.splash);

BEFORE

super.loadUrl("file:///android_asset/www/index.html");

Ade,

You have to use version 0.9.3, which is still being developed and
available only from github. It hasn't been released yet, but should
be in the next few days. The feature you are trying to use was added
on 11/21. See commit https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-android/commit/e3ebfea06407904a6efbc6b66842b205736078df.

Regards,
Bryce
