Android - How to use SharedPreferences in non-Activity class?

How do you use SharedPreferences in a non-Activity class? I tried making a generic Preferences utility class and importing

android.content.Context
but Eclipse still wouldn't let me use
getSharedPreferences()
.

Answer

SharedPreferences are related to context. You can only reference it through a context.

You can simply pass context as a parameter to your class. For example in the constructor.

In your activity do:

MyClass myClass = new MyClass(this);
