Android Samba Sharing – Copying files from Phone directory

This is a continuation post on Android Samba share. This post explains how you can copy files from your Phone directory (i.e. Internal storage or SD card files) to a PC’s shared folder using Samba share.

Make a new layout file in your application named filesfromdirectory.xml and edit it as following :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="match_parent"
 android:background="#414453"
 android:orientation="vertical"
 android:padding="10dp" >

 <EditText
 android:id="@+id/edtdir"
 style="@style/myedtbox"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:hint="LOCAL FILE" />

 <EditText
 android:id="@+id/edtservername"
 style="@style/myedtbox"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:hint="IP NAME OR SERVER NAME" />

 <EditText
 android:id="@+id/edtusername"
 style="@style/myedtbox"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:hint="USERNAME OR LOGIN ID" />

 <EditText
 android:id="@+id/edtpassword"
 style="@style/myedtbox"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:hint="PASSWORD" />

 <Button
 android:id="@+id/btncopy"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:background="#f7616a"
 android:text="COPY THIS"
 android:textColor="#ffffff"
 android:textStyle="bold"
 android:typeface="sans" />

 <TextView
 android:id="@+id/txtinfo"
 android:layout_width="wrap_content"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
 android:text="@string/hello_world"
 android:textColor="#ffffff"
 android:textSize="16sp"
 android:textStyle="bold"
 android:typeface="sans" />

 <ProgressBar
 android:id="@+id/pbbar"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="match_parent" />

</LinearLayout>

samba share dir 1

Make a new class file in your application with name FilesFromDirectory.java.

Declare following variables :


        TextView txtinfo;
	ProgressBar pbbar;
	EditText edtusername, edtpassword, edtservername, edtdir;
	Button btncopy;

 

Initialize these in onCreate method :


@Override
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
		setContentView(R.layout.filesfromdirectory);

		txtinfo = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtinfo);
		pbbar = (ProgressBar) findViewById(R.id.pbbar);
		pbbar.setVisibility(View.GONE);

		edtpassword = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edtpassword);
		edtdir = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edtdir);

		edtservername = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edtservername);
		edtusername = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edtusername);
		
		edtusername.setText("h");
		edtpassword.setText("789");
		edtservername.setText("192.168.0.100/hh");

		btncopy = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btncopy);

Make a new AsyncTask named MyCopy in this class as following :

private class MyCopy extends AsyncTask<String, String, String> {

		String z = "";
		String username = "", password = "", servername = "", filestocopy = "";

		@Override
		protected void onPreExecute() {

			pbbar.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);

			username = edtusername.getText().toString();
			password = edtpassword.getText().toString();
			servername = "smb://" + edtservername.getText().toString();
			filestocopy = edtdir.getText().toString();
		}

		@Override
		protected void onPostExecute(String r) {
			txtinfo.setText(r);
			pbbar.setVisibility(View.GONE);
		}

		@Override
		protected String doInBackground(String... params) {

			File file = new File(filestocopy);
			String filename = file.getName();

			NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth1 = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication(
					servername, username, password);

			try {

				SmbFile sfile = new SmbFile(servername + "/" + filename, auth1);
				if (!sfile.exists())
					sfile.createNewFile();
				sfile.connect();

				InputStream in = new FileInputStream(file);

				SmbFileOutputStream sfos = new SmbFileOutputStream(sfile);

				byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
				int len;
				while ((len = in.read(buf)) > 0) {
					sfos.write(buf, 0, len);
				}
				in.close();
				sfos.close();

				z = "File copied successfully";
			} catch (Exception ex) {

				z = z + " " + ex.getMessage().toString();
			}

			return z;
		}
	}

add onClick listener to your button in onCreate method and call this task inside onCLick method :


btncopy.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

			@Override
			public void onClick(View v) {
				// TODO Auto-generated method stub

				MyCopy mycopy = new MyCopy();
				mycopy.execute("");

			}
		});

AndroidManisfest.xml permissions :

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

That’s it!!!!
