i need help
for my android lib i need init my class in b4a with a android.content.Context
because GLSurfaceView have this in the constructor.

android library part in android studio
B4X:
import android.content.Context;
import android.opengl.GLSurfaceView;
import android.view.View;

@ShortName("ThreeDimensional")
public class ThreeDimensional {

    private GLSurfaceView glView;                   // use GLSurfaceView

    public View Init(Context context)
    {
        glView = new GLSurfaceView(context);           // Allocate a GLSurfaceView
        glView.setRenderer(new MyGLRenderer(context)); // Use a custom renderer

        return glView;
    }

b4a
B4X:
Private Test1 As ThreeDimensional
Test1.Init(???)

The B4A Questionsforum is not the right place for such questions. You should post them in the JAVA Questionsforum.

I´ll ask Erel to move the thread,

ok, i used it here because my app is b4a and related to android sdk.

what i found yet:
Context is the base class for Activity, Service, Application .... etc
..
Different invoking methods by which you can get context

getApplicationContext()
getContext()
getBaseContext()
or this (when in the activity class)

I guess 95-98% of the Java-Questions are related to B4A and Android.

Additionally your question IS about a Library for B4A (you are creating a java-Library for b4a) so it should be placed in the Developer Questionsforum
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/forums/libraries-developers-questions.32/
The Name of this subforumn is
Libraries developers questions
Your question is not a question related to this forum?

Also note that the Forum is a subforum of the B4A Questionsforum.

Libraries developers questions
saw this sub forum first time lol :)
my library compile well. currently i am in b4a activity and will use the functionality.

...

i have plan B
i change the function input to activity and get the context in the library:
B4X:
 public View Init2(Activity activity)
    {
        Context context = activity.getBaseContext();

wahhh, Activity in B4A is BALayout !?
Three.Init2(Activity)
src\com\rauch\opengl\main.java:380: error: incompatible types: BALayout cannot be converted to Activity
_three.Init2((Activity)(mostCurrent._activity.getObject()));

i need to give android.content.Context or android.app.Activity to my library.

public View Init(Context context)
should be
public View Init(BA ba)

The ba parameter won't be visible for the B4A user but it will be automatically filled when the function is called, allowing to get the context or the activity, and to raise B4A events.
