I am trying to deploy to Android in Graphite
I understand that the splash screen image needs to be in the 9 Patch format but I cannot seem to create a valid image in this format -- at least one that will allow the app to build. per the advice in the project properties link (http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/graphics/2d-graphics.html#nine-patch
) I have tried to follow its guidance but am having no luck. I've tried all manners of black borders and lines... sometimes it rejects it outright ("pixel X, Y is either non-black or transparent") and other times it takes the image but fails to build saying the image is malformed (BTW: "malformed" is pretty vague), which then causes three errors because the image fails to process then the jar file fails to build.
Three questions for you:
1) What are the exact rules surrounding a 9 Patch file?
2) Where do I find the default image that Graphite uses?
3) Is it prudent to allow the user to remove the default image but then provide no means to revert the image to some default value (I don't care if it is blank at this point)?
I am expected to present to a user group soon and have been effectively blocked from deployment. Not good.
Any help would be appreciated.
