Application Preferences plugin for Phonegap
Originally by Simon MacDonald (@macdonst)
Adding the Plugin to your project
- To install the plugin, move applicationPreferences.js to your project's www folder and include a reference to it in your html files.
- Create a folder called 'com/simonmacdonald/prefs' within your project's src folder.
- And copy the AppPreferences.java file into that new folder.
cp ./src/com/simonmacdonald/prefs/AppPreferences.java <your_project>/src/com/simonmacdonald/prefs
In your res/xml/plugins.xml file add the following line:
<plugin name="applicationPreferences" value="com.simonmacdonald.prefs.AppPreferences"/>
Using the plugin
The plugin creates the object
In order to get the value a property you would call the get method.
/** * Get the value of the named property. * * @param key */ get(key, success, fail)
window.plugins.applicationPreference.get("key", success, fail);
In order to set the value a property you would call the set method.
/** * Set the value of the named property. * * @param key * @param value */ set(key, value, success, fail)
window.plugins.applicationPreference.set("key", "value", success, fail);
In order to get all the properties you can call the load method. The success callback of the load method will be called with a JSONObject which contains all the preferences.
/** * Get all the preference values. * */ load(success, fail)
If you want to load the PreferenceActivity of your application that displays all the preferences you can call the show method with the class name.
/** * Get all the preference values. * */ show(activity, success, fail)
window.plugins.applicationPreference.show("com.simonmacdonald.prefs.PreferenceActivity", success, fail);
