Load Contact Image Into Bitmap

the function i use to get the Uri of the contact image thumbnail from the phone no. :

public static Uri getPhotoURIFromAddress(Context activity, String address) {
String contactId = getContactIdFromAddress(activity, address);

ContentResolver contentResolver = activity.getContentResolver();
try {
Cursor cursor = contentResolver
.query(ContactsContract.Data.CONTENT_URI,
null,
ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID
+ "="
+ contactId
+ " AND "

+ ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE
+ "='"
+ ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE
+ "'", null, null);

if (cursor != null) {
if (!cursor.moveToFirst()) {
return null; // no photo
}
} else {
return null; // error in cursor process
}
cursor.close();

} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
return null;
}

Uri person = ContentUris.withAppendedId(
ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, Long.valueOf(contactId));
return Uri.withAppendedPath(person,
ContactsContract.Contacts.Photo.CONTENT_DIRECTORY);
}


Which will return a Uri in the form of :

content://com.android.contacts/contacts/799/photo


now, if i use this Uri in an ImageView with the setImageUri(Uri) function, it works.

But loading a Bitmap is a problem. the function I'm using is :

public static Bitmap getContactBitmapFromURI(Context context, Uri uri) {
InputStream input = ContactsContract.Contacts
.openContactPhotoInputStream(context.getContentResolver(), uri);
if (input == null) {
return null;
}
return BitmapFactory.decodeStream(input);
}


which always crashes. LogCat is :

please help!

Answer

I dont think you should pass the uri of the photo to openContactphotoinputstream. You just need to pass the uri of the contact itself to get the bitmap.

 Uri uri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, id);
  InputStream stream = ContactsContract.Contacts.openContactPhotoInputStream(
            mContext.getContentResolver(), uri);

Or if you are going to pass the contact photo uri then you could use

public static Bitmap getContactBitmapFromURI(Context context, Uri uri) {
        InputStream input = context.getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri)
        if (input == null) {
            return null;
        }
        return BitmapFactory.decodeStream(input);
    }
