NOTE:

This library is not free, because, it took a lot of time and gray hair to create all the methods and learn how the api works.
Please write GSheets or GSheetplus in the order description, thanks.



Thanks for your understanding. :)

This library depends the Google OAuth2 class:
follow the tutorial in this topic to create your project in google console developer, enable google dive and google sheets apis, make sure to add your package name to your project, and create an oauth screen.

Add this in your manifest:

manifest:
AddActivityText(Main,
  <intent-filter>
  <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
  <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
  <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
  <data android:scheme="$PACKAGE$" />
  </intent-filter>
   )

Read example for v4 api:
Read sheets:
Sub GetSheet
table1.ClearAll
    Dim j As HttpJob
    j.Initialize("", Me)
    j.Download("https://sheets.googleapis.com/v4/spreadsheets/17YACjfqxKHDCXM_N7Jnq9BC_KzzkEgXLKzHDwaIM5Zs/values/Example!A2:Z?key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx")
    Wait For (j) JobDone(j As HttpJob)
    If j.Success Then
        Dim parser As JSONParser
        parser.Initialize(j.GetString.Trim)
        Dim root As Map = parser.NextObject
        'Dim majorDimension As String = root.Get("majorDimension")
        Dim values As List = root.Get("values")
 
        For Each colvalues As List In values
 
  Dim id1 As Int = colvalues.Get("4")
            Dim create As String = colvalues.Get("3")
            Dim Telephone1 As Int = colvalues.Get("0")
            Dim Age1 As Int = colvalues.Get("2")
            Dim Name1 As String = colvalues.Get("1")
            If colvalues.Size > 0 Then
             table1.AddRow(Array As String(id1,Telephone1,Name1,Age1,create))
            End If
 
        Next
        Dim range As String = root.Get("range")
        Log(range)
    End If

 

    j.Release
End Sub

Read example with Gsheets
ReadGsheet Gsheets::
Sub GetSheet

 
    Table1..ClearAll
    s.GetSheet(Me)
    Wait For get_result(x As List)
 
    For Each col As Map In x
 
        Table1.AddRow(Array As String(col.Get("1"),col.Get("Téléphone"),col.Get("Name"),col.Get("Age"),col.Get("created")))
 
    Next
 
End Sub

Example connect:

Example connect:
#Region  Activity Attributes
    #FullScreen: false
    #IncludeTitle: FALSE
#End Region

Sub Process_Globals
    'These global variables will be declared once when the application starts.
    'These variables can be accessed from all modules.

End Sub

Sub Globals
    'These global variables will be redeclared each time the activity is created.
    'These variables can only be accessed from this module.

    Dim s As GSheets
    Private conect1 As Button
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    s.Initialize("xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.apps.googleusercontent.com")'your Clientid google developers console, activate google drive api and google sheets api
    s.Sheets_name = "Example"
    s.SpreadsheetsId = "1FHx-a_a4afTQ3L5hXJIOttCVaJNngO3113E-qqFOjbk"
    Activity.LoadLayout("sheets1")
 
End Sub

'Connect
Sub connect1_Click
    s.connect
End Sub

Sub Activity_Resume

s.oauth2.CallFromResume(Activity.GetStartingIntent)
 
End Sub


Advantages:
  • It is not linked to paying an external api
  • the google sheet api is totally free
  • You can integrate multiple apps into a single project in the google console
  • Easy to use and integrate

I can not see any Example-Code in the Download (it´s only a B4XLib-file). Are there some examples available?
