I have to concatenate these two strings from my resource/value files:
<string name="Toast_Memory_GameWon_part1">you found ALL PAIRS ! on </string> <string name="Toast_Memory_GameWon_part2"> flips !</string>
I do it this way :
String message_all_pairs_found = getString(R.string.Toast_Memory_GameWon_part1)+total_flips+getString(R.string.Toast_Memory_GameWon_part2); Toast.makeText(this, message_all_pairs_found, 1000).show();
But the spaces at the end of the first string and at the beginning of the second string have disappeared (when the Toast is shown) ...
What should I do ?
I guess the answer is somewhere here in this documentation link
or is it something like using
& ; for the "&" character ??
Even if you use string formatting, sometimes you still need white spaces at the beginning or the end of your string. For these cases, neither escaping with
xml:space attribute helps. You must use HTML entity
for a whitespace.
for non-breakable whitespace.
for regular space.
I ran into the same issue. I wanted to leave a blank at the end of a resource string representing an on-screen field name.
I found a solution on this issue report : https://github.com/iBotPeaches/Apktool/issues/124
This is the same idea that Duessi suggests. Insert
\u0020 directly in the XML for a blank you would like to preserve.
<string name="your_id">Score :\u0020</string>
The replacement is done at build time, therefore it will not affect the performance of your game.
