Suppose you have an image named “test.png” in your res/drawable directory.
You will probably use is as this:
Drawable mDrawable = getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.test);
But what if you want to dynamically load the drawable by it’s name?
You can use this:
String mDrawableName = "test"; int resID = getResources().getIdentifier(mDrawableName , "drawable", getPackageName()); Drawable mDrawable = getResources().getDrawable(resID);
