Creating and Storing Log File on device in Android


Hello Friends,
        Today, I am sharing another android tutorial which helps you in Creating
and Storing Log File in your android phone.


1. MainActivity.java
package com.example.logfileimplementation;

import java.io.File;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Environment;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
 
 public static final String SDCARD = String.valueOf(Environment
   .getExternalStorageDirectory());
 TextView mTextView;
 @Override
 protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  try {
  deleteLog();
  setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
  createAppDirectories();
  mTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.action_settings);
  mTextView.setText("Android crash Reporter");
  } catch(Exception ex) {
   Utilities.writeIntoLog(Log.getStackTraceString(ex));
  }
 }

 @Override
 public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
  // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
  getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
  return true;
 }

 // Creating App Directory For Log File
 private void createAppDirectories() {
  System.out.println("hiii");
  File dir1 = new File(Utilities.APP_DIR);
  if (!dir1.exists()) {
   dir1.mkdir();
  }
 }

 // Deleting App Directory which is used for Log File
 private void deleteLog() {

  File log = new File(Utilities.LOG_FILE_PATH);
  if (log.exists()) {
   log.delete();
  }
 }
}

2. Utilities.java
package com.example.logfileimplementation;

import java.io.BufferedWriter;
import java.io.FileWriter;


public class Utilities {
 public static String APP_DIR = MainActivity.SDCARD+"/Logfile";
 public static String LOG_FILE_PATH = APP_DIR+"/ myapp_log.txt";  
 
 
 
 public static void writeIntoLog(String data) 
 {
   
  FileWriter fw = null;    
  try {
   
   fw = new FileWriter(LOG_FILE_PATH , true);
   BufferedWriter buffer = new BufferedWriter(fw);   
   buffer.append(data+"\n");
    
   buffer.close();

  } catch (Exception e) { 
   e.printStackTrace();
  }
   
 }  
}

3. activity_main.xml


<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

    android:layout_width="match_parent"

    android:layout_height="match_parent"

    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"

    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"

    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"

    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"

    tools:context=".MainActivity" >



    <TextView

        android:id="@+id/textView"

        android:layout_width="wrap_content"

        android:layout_height="wrap_content"

        android:text="@string/hello_world" />

  

</RelativeLayout>
4. AndroidManifest.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.example.logfileimplementation"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="8"
        android:targetSdkVersion="18" />

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

    <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
        <activity
            android:name="com.example.logfileimplementation.MainActivity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

</manifest>
Hope this will help you.
Enjoy Coding. Cheers.... :)
