Android Application Data Storage With SharedPreferences - Code Theory

Android Application Data Storage With SharedPreferences

Android has a concept of shared preferences using which application preferences data can be stored persistently. That means the data or state won’t be lost until the application is uninstalled. The preferences data can be stored as key/value pairs and are available across all the Activities of the given application or can also be restricted to a particular Activity.

SharedPreferences

Using the SharedPreferences interface implementations we can store persistent sets of data in the filesystem. The data will be available across application restarts or even device stop/start. Consider it as a small cave to hold your app’s data mostly related to settings and user preferences. Anything that is slightly more complicated like relational data should still go into the sqlite database or media files into the filesystem.

What's the one thing every developer wants? More screens! Enhance your coding experience with an external monitor to increase screen real estate.

SharedPreferences can be used to store any (and only) primitive data types – booleans, floats, ints, longs and strings – that’ll persist across user sessions (user closes the app and re-opens it). To determine what type of data to store, just think of anything that might require caching for quick usage like username, logged in state, email, high score or level in a game, gender (or other profile info), app-related settings, etc.

Shared Preferences can be stored at 2 levels – activity or application. To get a SharedPreferences object for your activity or application in order to start storing, retrieving and updating data there are two methods:

  • getSharedPreferences() – Application-wide preferences file identified by the name passed to it as the first argument.
  • getPreferences() – Activity-level preferences object where no name is specified as there will be only one file for an Activity.

Here’s how the first one is used:

You can store as many shared preferences as you want for your application and all of them will keep on getting saved in the XML file named MyPrefs which is usually located at /data/data/[package name]/shared_prefs/MyPrefs.xml . You can browse that in the File Explorer in the DDMS view or if your device is rooted then go ahead and explore it in $ adb shell .

The image shows my app specific data (including shared preferences) in DDMS. com.pycitup.pyc is my application’s package name.

In case you don’t want to provide a name for app-wide shared preferences then we can use PackageManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences() (not included in the list of methods above) which uses a default name behind the scenes which is a concatenation of the package name and the string _preferences. Hence the file path will be something like /data/data/com.package.name/shared_prefs/com.package.name_preferences.xml . This is how you use it:

The activity-level method version has to be used like this:

This version will save its data in /data/data/[package name]/shared_prefs/[Activity Name].xml .

If you notice we passed an option called Context.MODE_PRIVATE (can also pass just MODE_PRIVATE if in an activity or the integer 0 ) which basically means that the created shared preferences file will be accessible by the calling application only.

Now let’s go through how to write and read preferences.

Storing Preferences

Once you’ve decided whether you want application preferences or activity one, then you’ll start storing data into it. Once you’ve a valid SharedPreferences object you call edit() method on it to fetch a SharedPreferences.Editor object whose public method will allow us to start writing data to the file. To store primitive data it has various methods like putBoolean() , putFloat() , putInt() , putLong() and putString() .

Let’s try storing some values:

We stored 2 key-value pairs. This is how our /data/data/[package name]/shared_prefs/MyPrefs.xml should look like now:

Notice we had to use the commit() method to commit our changes. There’s another method to do the same which is apply() but that is asynchronous and won’t report failures.

Updating Preferences

Updating the preferences is similar to the setting them that we just learnt a bit back. Get the SharedPreferences.Editor object, set values using the put*() methods and then commit your changes.

Same code but different values. The new XML contents looks like this:

Retrieving Preferences

Fetching the preferences is done directly on the SharedPreferences object. So SharedPreferences.Editor is not required. There are several `get` methods for this job like getBoolean() , getFloat() , getInt() , getLong() and getString() . All of them accept two arguments where the first is the name of the key while the second non-optional one is the default value to return if the preference does not exists (is undefined).

The code logged CodeTheory and false in separate lines.

Deleting Preferences

Deleting a particular preference is super simple. Just call the remove() method and commit your changes.

You can also clear() the entire remaining preferences from your storage.

Preferences Listener

The onSharedPreferenceChanged() method will be called whenever a particular key is added, changed or removed. Note: At times if this code doesn’t work then try saving the OnSharedPreferenceChangeListener object into a variable or an instance member to hold a reference to it. This SO answer explains it all.

You can always check if a particular preference exists (is set) or not using the contains() method on the SharedPreferences object like this:

We can write a set of Strings to our preferences using the putStringSet() method. This is how we can do it:

Here’s the XML representation (contents):

Using getStringSet() you can get the Set data back.

You might be wondering when to use this data storage option. A few cases that I can think off the bat are:

  • Game’s high score and current level.
  • Persisting user session post login in your application where the session data contains username, email, gender, etc.
  • Applications like WhatsApp have their Settings/Preferences section where you can set the notification ring tone or status message and other app-specific options to modify the behaviour or features. This can be achieved with SharedPreferences easily.

Android Preference APIs/Objects

When building a full-fledged settings/preferences section for the user in your app (somewhat similar to the Android’s Settings app), instead of building the user interface with your own custom View objects and then wiring up the functionality by writing some backend logic in the Activity class, we can use Preference objects in conjunction with PreferenceActivity to quickly build the user interface. Along with that the other major advantage of this approach is that, saving preferences is done behind the scenes using SharedPreferences and the integration of the UI with the updated value to set the correct state of various controls (checkbox for example) is also handled automatically. Apart from that this entire framework has its own simple APIs for quick customizations.

The comprehensive Android settings guide has all the information with regards to this.

Conclusion

So we explored the SharedPreferences data storage option which eases some sort of caching by storing super simple and quick key/value pairs (in XML files behind the scenes). Remember for more complicated data like relational data or files there are other options like saving in sqlite or the filesystem.

Nice Article but one question in my mind. when phone is switch off and switch on again. shared preference still know their value or not??

Yes it’ll persist. Don’t forget the importance of the commit() method.

How to customize default TB profile - read this!

Posted February 26th, 2004, 3:21 pm

2) Search the users Application Data\Thunderbird folder for a *.slt folder, and copy the name of that folder into an environment variable (thats the tricky part) - this is the location of the new profile just created.

3) Copy my predefined user settings, expanding relevent environment variables for the logged on user (%username% and profilepath found in step2), and append them to the (currently empty) prefs.js

4) User loads TB for the first time, and only has to enter his password, everything else is configured!

To the Bat Noun - All The Tropes

To the Bat Noun

Few Bat-things can seem so anti-climactic as characters going Bat-somewhere or entering a Bat-vehicle, but there's always a way of doing things dramatically. Simply make a character yell (with or without his arm up):

The first usage of this trope was on 1960s Batman series (Does "To the Batmobile!" sound Bat-familiar?), and it was parodic even then. Most appearances of it nowadays are even more so, as the character will be overly dramatic about, say, going Bat-downstairs to eat bat-something. Thus, it's a Dead Unicorn Trope.

Rest assured if there's anything distinctive about someone's car, fans will dub it the InsertNameHere-mobile.

Not to be confused with To the Batpole. Can be confused with What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?. Also distinct from using a car's (or anything else's) trade name- that's Product Placement.

Now, to the Bat-examples!:

  • Used and lampshaded in The Middleman: all gadgets and outfits are middle-suffix.
  • Used at the end of Young Frankenstein, when the rehabilitated Monster accidentally rips off Inspector Kemp's wooden arm while shaking hands:

Kemp: Oh, shit. [Points dramatically with the arm] To the lumberyard!!

  • During It's a Very, Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, after Kermit's little nephew Robin suggests him to call one of his famous friends after Miss Piggy leaves the Christmas play, Kermit says "To the starphone!" accompanied by Batman-sounding music.
  • Flushed Away: "Enough games. To the ratmobiles!
  • Hogfather: Onwards, Binky, to the Hogfather's Castle of Bones
  • Discworld
    • In Hogfather, Archchancellor Ridcully shouts "To the laundry!" and points dramatically towards the ceiling, only to have his colleagues remind him that the University's laundry is in the basement. He then refines his battle cry to "Down to the laundry!"
    • The Light Fantastic: Possibly a follow-up to a more played-straight example occurs when Archchancellor Galder Weatherwax keeps dramatically pointing at the ceiling to follow the path of the spell that turned the Librarian into an orangutan.
  • Used straight several times in Lord of the Rings:
    • Gandalf: "To the bridge of Khazad-dûm!"
    • Éomer: "Rohirrim! To the King!"
  • Captain Underpants:

Captain Underpants: To the underwear cave!

Harold: There is no underwear cave!

  • Parodied in Animorphs:

Marco: To the Bat-morph, Robin!

  • The Trope Namer: Batman.
    • Alfred even took a leaf. Alfcycle, anyone?
  • Parodied in Angel when Spike mocks the title character's hero complex by narrating as Angel saves a woman from being mugged. We can't hear the real dialogue between Angel and the woman, but we hear Spike speak for Angel, "Evil's still afoot, and I'm almost out of that nancy-boy hair gel I like so much. Quickly! To the Angelmobile! Away!"
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000 uses this trope to mock the title character of Puma Man when he attempts a heroic cape swish.

Tom: Into the Effeminate Mobile!

    • And again in This Island Earth:

Crow: This looks like a job for Weenieman! Into the Weeniemobile. Weenieman away!

Mike: Into the Cupcake Mobile!

  • Parodied in Mock the Week with Scenes We'd Like To See, "Lines you wouldn't hear in a superhero film"

Frankie Boyle: To the Bat-Caravan!

  • How I Met Your Mother: "To the Willowbrook Mall!"
  • I'm in The Band: Usually, though not always, "To the band van!"
    • Although it can deteriorate all the way to "To the that way!"(sic).
  • Seinfeld: "To the Idiotmobile!"
  • In one episode of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, during one scene, Ned says, "To the library!"
  • The song "One More River" by James Reyne has the line, "Pick up the Batphone and dial my number."
  • Eminem: To the Rapmobile! Let's go! (Guess who's back guess who's back guess who's back guess who's back)
  • In a memorable Calvin and Hobbes strip, Calvin wonders out loud why his heroes don't fight realistic villains. Hobbes suggests that the fights would involve writing letters to the editor and so forth. As Calvin says that he sees the problem, Hobbes ends the strip with the line "Quick! To the Bat-Fax!"
  • WWE wrestler The Hurricane used to do this as a parody of Batman, saying things like "To the Hurricave!" and "To the Hurricycle!"
  • The Red Baron in Empire Earth: To the skies!
  • Professor Layton: Unfortunately, this never happens, despite him calling his car the Laytonmobile.
  • Some variation of "To the Freedom Flyer!" appeared in Freedom Force.
  • Naturally, Sluggy Freelance had to get into the act with the Bum-Mobile and the Bum-Jet, except there's no Bum-Mobile and the Bum-Jet is a cardboard box that Torg makes engine sounds to.
  • The Trope Namer was parodied in thisEveryday Heroes episode.
  • Combined with Gratuitous German in thisIrregular Webcomic strip. "To die Fledermauszeppelin!"
  • "I'm just pointing dramatically. It doesn't have to be in the right direction."
  • Homestar Runner: Used in the Strong Bad Email ghosts (followed immediately by a Batman-style scene transition):

Strong Bad: The Cheat! Meet me in the Strong Bad Cave!

The Cheat: [quizzical noise]

Strong Bad: Erm, well. meet me in the closet and, uh. we'll put on some costumes.

    • Also used in an Easter Egg in love poems, where Strong Sad expects to be called on the Strong Badphone.
  • Parodied in Yu-Gi-Oh the Abridged Series: "Into the Kaibacave!"
    • Not to mention the Kaibacopter! (Trademark)
    • "To the Mokubamobile!"
      • There isn't a Mokubamobile.
  • Lampshaded in PS238, where one of the problems with the school is that the superpowered students respond to going on lunch breaks by declaring in unison: "To the cafeteria -- For Justice!".
  • In The Nostalgia Critic review of The Wizard (film) "To the shit-mobile!". Followed by a shot of the shit-mobile in action, complete with music from Batman.
  • 'Weebl and Bob: In the Team Laser Explosion episodes, Captain Exploserous Laser (Weebl) always responds to calls from the mayor with "To the skies!"
  • The Nostalgia Chick: The Chick, in one of her rare Large Ham moments: "To Wikipedia!"
  • Batman the Brave And The Bold
    • The Joker, of all people, does this in : "To the Batmobile!"
    • Plastic Man spoofs this as well. "Quick! To the Plas-Cave!"
  • As a direct Batman parody, Adam West/Catman in The Fairly OddParents.
    • "To the Crocker Cave!"
  • As always, The Simpsons did it:
    • Bart was accused of stealing from the church collection plate, Lisa accuses Reverend Lovejoy's daughter of taking the money and framing Bart, and explains that they'll find all the stolen funds in her room. Homer stands up, points dramatically, and shouts, "To the little girl's room!"
    • Another time, during Dial Z For Zombie, a Treehouse of Horror segment, when Springfield was in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse, Lisa suggests using the library to find out a way to stop them. Homer pulls a shotgun out of nowhere, gives a Dramatic Gun Cock while pointing with it, and declares: "To the Book Depository!"
    • And in the episode where Sideshow Bob tries to kill Selma, Homer actually says, "To the Simpsonmobile!"
      • To make even more like the trope namer, next to the garage there was a sign next to their garage telling the distance between them and their intended destination.
    • Beekeeper: "To the Beemobile!" "You mean your Chevy?" (Beat) "Yes."
    • An uncharacteristically moving performance by Ralph Wiggum, playing George Washington, motivates the school bullies to learn about his history. Dolph shouts "To the library!", to which Jimbo enthusiastically agrees.
    • The time Marge gave Wolfgang Puck an idea for a new dish: "To the Puckmobile!"
  • Parodied several times in Jimmy Neutron with Jimmy's semi-catchphrase"TO THE LAB!" Sheen eventually got in on the act by trying to insert "To the lab!" every time they would go anywhere, eventually settling for "To this place first, and then. the lab!" After that, they occasionally shared the use of the phrase, though Sheen's uses were always more of the Lampshade variety.
    • For further parody, the time that Sheen got in on the act, they ended up not going to the lab.
  • Futurama has played with it a few times. Professor Farnsworth shouts "To the laboratory!". only to have everyone walk there at their normal pace.
    • And of course, the mandatory employee meeting called with "To the Mandatorium!"
    • And in case of emergencies, "To the Calamitorium!"

These are all the exact same place, obviously.

    • Bender exhorts the others to get on the Planet Express Ship with "To the Flying Machine!"
  • Family Guy plays with this three times:
    • In an early episode, Peter shouts, "To the Batcave!" and slides down a pole to Batman-sounding music, only to end up in a cave filled with bats, who swarm on him.
    • In a later episode, he shouts, "To the Peter-copter!" and appears in a helicopter shaped like his head, which promptly crashes on Joe's lawn. Then he shouts, "To the Hinden-Peter!" and appears in a dirigible with his face on the front, which crashes in flames into his neighbor's house. Joe's outraged cry: "How can you afford these things.
