B4A Library SecretTextView

The attached project wraps this Github project (it is also my 50th library posting). Posting the following:

1.B4A project
2. The Java Code
3. B4A library files. The library files include android-support-annotations.jar - copy all three files to your additional library folder.

Some sample code:

B4X:
#Region  Project Attributes
    #ApplicationLabel: SecretTextView
    #VersionCode: 1
    #VersionName:
    'SupportedOrientations possible values: unspecified, landscape or portrait.
    #SupportedOrientations: landscape
    #CanInstallToExternalStorage: False
#End Region

#Region  Activity Attributes
    #FullScreen: False
    #IncludeTitle: True
#End Region

Sub Process_Globals
    'These global variables will be declared once when the application starts.
    'These variables can be accessed from all modules.
 
    Dim t As Timer

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.

    Private stv1 As SecretTextView

End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    Activity.LoadLayout("main")
 
    t.Initialize("t", 5000)
 
    stv1.Text = "This is a wrapper for https://github.com/matthewrkula/SecretTextView"
    stv1.TextSize = 30.0
    stv1.TextColor = Colors.Red
    stv1.Duration = 3000
 
End Sub

Sub Activity_Resume
 
    t.Enabled = True

End Sub

Sub Activity_Pause (UserClosed As Boolean)
 
    t.Enabled = False

End Sub

Sub t_tick
 
    stv1.TextColor = Colors.ARGB(Rnd(200, 256), Rnd(150, 256), Rnd(150, 256), Rnd(150, 256))
    stv1.toggle
 
End Sub

Hi johan, perhaps can you give me a light :) , I discovered something interesting. when I open a new project in B4A IDE, and only add this 2 libraries SecretTextView and the FusedLocationProvider

The Compiler say this. apparently we have the same class or jar file twice (I had been reading the forums about this type of errors), I did not really understand 100% where is the conlfict. I did not put any code in the IDE, only the two libraries for test.
something is doind a conflict. perhaps is in Library FusedLocationProvider.

Now why ? RequieresPermission ??

Thanks
Daniel White

I would suggest that once you have copied the 3 library files from the /Files folder of the B4A project to your additional library folder that you then delete them from the /Files folder. Also check if you don't perhaps have android-support-annotations.jar in your additional library folder as well as in the main B4A library folder. That might perhaps cause a conflict.

I have just started a new B4A project to test your observation. I have SecretTextView and FusedLocationProvider both enabled and I get no error whatsoever. Perhaps one of the experts on this subject can elaborate as to why you get the error.
