zoom control

WebView with zoom controls, image from SDCARD

SDK Version: 

The Problem:
When I'm trying to load an image (tried both gif and png) from my assets directory, into a webview.
In my assets folder, I have an image called myImage.gif
Here's my wrong code:

  1. WebView data = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.data)
  2. data.loadData("<IMG HEIGHT=\"42px\" WIDTH=\"42px\" SRC=\"file:///android_assets/myImage.gif\" />", "text/html",  "UTF-8");

All that happens when I try it, is that I get a blank screen with a
empty 42px/42px box.
In logcat, I see the message:
03-30 00:21:14.398: DEBUG/WebCore(214): Console: Not allowed to load
local resource: file:///android_assets/myImage.gif line: 0 source:

The Solution:
Even though, I'm going to load the image file from the filesystem (SDCARD or Phone Storage), instead of Assets folder, I've found a solution for this, and you don't even have to care about ContentProviders... (Which is also a good solution, but this is much easier & quicker in this case.)
