I'm writing a live wallpaper that creates an effect over a background. I want the user to be able to choose the background from any of the system wallpapers and camera photos. What I would like is for the user to be able to press a button in the Settings menu, have the list of options show up just like setting the wallpaper from the home screen, minus the Live Wallpapers options. Once the user navigates the choices and picks an actually image I would load it to my canvas.
How do I do this?
I can't find an API anywhere for getting a list of wallpapers.
I've been able to come up with a list of wallpaper providers using Intents. I then get a list of live wallpaper providers also using Intents and remove those from my first list. The gives me a list of wallpaper providers that are not live.
Now what? Are there other ways to do this that I'm missing?
