Working with Other Types of Resources

We have covered the most common types of resources you might need in an application. There are numerous other types of resources available as well. These resource types may be used less often and may be more complex. However, they allow for very powerful applications. Some of the other types of resources you can take advantage of include:

► String arrays

► Animation sequences

► Shape drawables

► Styles and themes

► Custom layout controls

When you are ready to use these other resource types, consult the Android documentation for further details. You will also want to consider reading a more advanced book on Android development. There are several available, including the Developer's Library book Android Wireless Application Development. Written by yours truly, this complete Android reference includes an exhaustive explanation of application resources types, with accompanying source code sample projects.
