Hi.

I'm using Informatix's library GooglePlayGameServices to manage scores and leaderboards, and everything goes well, but getting current player's image. I can put this image without a problem on an ImageView, with the code:
B4X:
Dim gpp As GPlayPlayers
    gpp.Initialize
    gpp.CurrentPlayer.GetHiResImage(imageView1)
but I want to show a round picture, and for this I need the bitmap. I can't get the bitmap from
B4X:
Dim bmp1 as Bitmap
    bmp1.Initialize3(imageView1.Bitmap)

'or

Dim bmp1 as Bitmap = imageView1.Bitmap
because it seems to be empty when I try to set another view's bitmap.
B4X:
dim imageView2 as Imageview
    imageView2.Initialize("")
    imageview2.Bitmap = bmp1
I've tried to get the imageview background with
B4X:
Dim bg as BitmapDrawable = imageView1.Background
imageView2.background = bg

'or

imageView2.Background = imageView1.Background
but nothing appears in the imageView2 background, so I think that the method GetHiResImage doesn't put/store the image as a bitmap nor in the background.

I've also tried by getting the image from the URI with
B4X:
Dim imageURI as string =gpp.CurrentPlayer.GetHiResImage2
and get the URI, but can't manage with it, no matter how many methods I've tried from all the threads I've read.

Any ideas on how can I retrieve the player's image as a bitmap?

Thank you.
