Description Goncalo Oliveira 2013-01-04 06:12:45 UTC
Seems like you can only set preference instance title and summary using a resource id.

        [Register( "setSummary", "(I)V", "GetSetSummary_IHandler" )]
        public virtual void SetSummary( int summaryResId );
        [Register( "setTitle", "(I)V", "GetSetTitle_IHandler" )]
        public virtual void SetTitle( int titleResId );

This is kind of a dead end to me because I don't use the resources for texts. My translations are downloaded and stored in a database. There should be a [string] signature method.

The android documentation does mentions a [CharSequence] signature method.

public void setTitle (CharSequence title)
public void setSummary (CharSequence summary)

Erm... Just realized there's a Title and Summary property.
Was looking in the wrong place. Oops.
