Hi friends,

I have specific requirement I have few files in assets folder. I want that file in File object. (This is the requirement and I need to follow them STRICTLY,InputStream or any other is not allowed).

How to convert that ? SO far I have tried


but this does not work.

Any Help..

If I can achieve the same using raw folder,that is also fine for me.

i am not quite sure but i think AssetManager has method called
String[] list(String path) (Thats because have never used it but i remember this 1)
So you can use getAsset() to get the assetManager and call this method
using this list you can get File object of your specific intrest.
Let me know if it works....

Very true Vishal.

It gives list of all file's name. But what I want is path. File class takes absolute path in constructor's parameter. So my question is how to get absolute path of assets folder.
