I have an activity with a listview and a custom adapter. Retrieving the contact information and the image is not the problem. I can not display an alternative image if there is not one for the contact.
Checking if the URI is NULL does not work for me.
I am retrieving the URI of the android contacts and the resulting URI have the format
where XXX is a number. The resulting URI is only NULL for default contacts added like emergency numbers, so checking for NULL to replace the image with a placeholder image works only on those numbers. For all other contacts that have not set an image i want to check the filesize of the contact image.
File f = new File(uri.getPath()); long size = f.length(); String str = Long.toString(size);
Using the above commands results are always 0, it doesn´t matter if there is a photo or not.
How can i check the filesize correctly? or how can i check if the resulting photo is empty.
Thanks for helping
