hi i am creating a listview with checkbox. if i define data in class itself it is working but i want to access the data from string.xml file and i am using the following code. please suggest me solution how to access it
public class ListTestActivity extends ListActivity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
String tag = "Events";
String[] presidents;
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// Create an array of Strings, that will be put to our ListActivity
presidents =getResources().getStringArray(R.array.presidents_array);
ArrayAdapter<Model> adapter = new InteractiveArrayAdapter(this,
Log.d(tag," event");

private List<Model> getModel() {
List<Model> list = new ArrayList<Model>();

list.add(get("Linux"));/// here i want to access the strings.xml file instead of this any suggestion
// Initially select one of the items
Log.d(tag," event1");
return list;

private Model get(String s) {
Log.d(tag," event2");
return new Model(s);

Solution is very simple....

To retrieve String from string.xml you can use getText(R.string.<your string resource name>);

getText is method defined in Context class.

I hope I understood you question correctly.

Would you please edit your posts and use "Code" tags to format your code? It is really hard to follow your code without formatting.
