Does this generate the icon set on the fly or is it pre specified? Only there has just been a new set loaded and it would be nice to use something that is always upto date. I already use MSIconicDrawable but just dropping a new ttf file into the folder doesn't open up the new icons for use :( Hopefully yours will.

it is a ttf font where the icons come from..

This is NOT based on the font used in msiconic drawable

Yes I'd seen the TTF bit but was really wondering if the code can handle just dropping the new TTF in.

Couple more questions

Is there a way to reference icons by name or is it purely index based (with corresponding edit of the attrs.xml file)

Is there a way to get the icon as a drawable? I want to use in the action bar and need it as a drawable to manage that.

Thanks in advance

Jon

No, the lib does not expose such a feature.
But you can get a list of all names which you could use to get the right index

B4X:
Dim iconlist As List
    iconlist.Initialize
    iconlist = mi.Iconlist

Is there a way to get the icon as a drawable?
no

OK thanks for letting me know Manfred. Will you be developing this further with features such as the ones I was asking about?

See updated lib (1.0.7) in post #1. 1341 Icons in the new ttf

Hey Manfred,

The Github attrs.xlm is incompatible with B4A. I believe it needs to be updated?? The Icons not matching with the names.

Any users downloading the example, you will need the attachment (old .ttf) until V1.07 gets resolved.

Here is an updated attrs.xml.

This will show all icons with proper names.

If the original lib will be updated i can do an update for the wrap. But i´m NOT able to save it as a Drawable or eben Bitmap.
And the list of names you can build by yourself (but i already said that).
