Subject Re: Image Path
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 01:41:48 GMT
Hi Greg,

I use the image in the memory game that I've sended to you.
I created a specialized ButtonData that receives two Strings in its
constructor. One of then is de default image, that apears when the button is
"closed" and the another is the image that apears when the user clicks the
I have to do it programmatically 'cause I have to randomize the image

I knew about the "@" symbol in the bxml file... but I just had the error
mentioned... in the source using Pivot 1.5.2 I didn't have to use the
leading "/" in the path:

private String defaultImage = "/img/default.gif";

for(int aux = 0; aux < 36; aux++){
             // *images36[aux]* contains the randomized images
             buttons[aux].setButtonData(new MemGameButtonData(*defaultImage*,


public class MemGameButtonData extends ButtonData{

    private String defaultURL;
    private String buttonURL;

    public MemGameButtonData(String URLPadrao, String URLBotao){

        this.buttonURL = URLBotao;
        this.defaultURL = URLPadrao;

    public void setDefaultURL(){

    public void setButtonURL(){

    public Image getButtonURL(){
        return this.getIcon();
