i am trying to add additional info (in fact an id i created in a resource file) to a view (e.g. a button) via xml.
I defined the item:
<item type="integer" name="my_id">@+id/my_id</item>
Then i tried to use the id in a tag in the button:
If i retrieve the tag with getTag() it results in "@.....". The number after the "@" is correct, but i thought i can retrieve the number only. What the hell does the @ in front of "my" number?
Any ideas how i can create own id's (integer-numbers) and attach them via xml to a button?
What i really want is to retrieve this id and put it into a switch/case to decide which function the button should execute as i have to use different layouts with different buttons (and sometimes different buttons have the same function) that are "rooted" through a central dispatcher.
Best regards, Udo
