I am following a tutorial that shows you how to create an app like WhatsApp but I am having a very very hard time with one problem.

When the user goes to their SettingsActivity they see their default image, name and status. When I click on the default image, I go to the gallery on my phone and select the image I want to use. When I select it I crop out the image and then I hit the word crop in the top right hand corner. I get the message that it's cropping the image and then it says the image upload was successful.

When I look in my Firebase Database, this is what I see the image is stored as
"com.google.android.gms.tasks.zzu@44d8fb0".

But even though it's in the Database it's still showing me the default profile pic. When I click update and then go back to the SettingsActivity there is no picture where the profile pic is suppose to be. Not even the default image. I tried debugging this and changing my code around but nothing help me. Can anyone help me ?

SettingsActivity :

<pre> private Button UpdateAccountSettings;
    private EditText userName, userStatus;
    private CircleImageView userProfileImage;

    private String currentUserID;
    private FirebaseAuth mAuth;
    private DatabaseReference RootRef;

    private  static final int GalleryPick = 1;
    private StorageReference UserProfileImagesRef;
    private ProgressDialog loadingBar;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_settings);

        mAuth = FirebaseAuth.getInstance();
        currentUserID = mAuth.getCurrentUser().getUid();
        RootRef = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference();
        UserProfileImagesRef = FirebaseStorage.getInstance().getReference().child("Profile Images");

        InitializeFields();

        userName.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);

        UpdateAccountSettings.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {

                UpdateSettings();
            }
        });

        RetrieveUserInfo();

        userProfileImage.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {

                Intent galleryIntent = new Intent();
                galleryIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
                galleryIntent.setType("image/*");
                startActivityForResult(galleryIntent, GalleryPick);

            }
        });
    }

    private void InitializeFields() {

        userName = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.set_user_name);
        userStatus = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.set_profile_status);
        userProfileImage = (CircleImageView) findViewById(R.id.set_profile_image);
        loadingBar = new ProgressDialog(this);
        UpdateAccountSettings = (Button) findViewById(R.id.update_settings_button);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, @Nullable Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

        if(requestCode == GalleryPick  &&   resultCode==RESULT_OK && data!=null){

            CropImage.activity()
                    .setGuidelines(CropImageView.Guidelines.ON)
                    .setAspectRatio(1,1)
                    .start(this);
        }

        if (requestCode == CropImage.CROP_IMAGE_ACTIVITY_REQUEST_CODE) {
            CropImage.ActivityResult result = CropImage.getActivityResult(data);

This is the tutorial Android Whatsapp Clone Tutorial 13 - Settings Activity - Android Group Chat App using Firebase - YouTube[^]

What I have tried:

I tried debugging this app.
Changing my code around.
Reading an endless amount of examples.
Watching a bunch of videos.

Do you know what's wrong with it ?

1 solution

I will suggest you to upload image and text by using below method.

In UpdateSettings function, create an Item class.
Java
private void UpdateSettings() {

        String setUserName = userName.getText().toString();
        String setStatus = userStatus.getText().toString();

        if (TextUtils.isEmpty(setUserName)) {
            Toast.makeText(this, "Please enter your user name...", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
        if (TextUtils.isEmpty(setStatus)) {
            Toast.makeText(this, "Please write your status...", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        } else {
            Item item =new Item();
            if(resultUri!=null) {
               item = new Item(resultUri.toString(), setUserName, setStatus, currentUserID);
            }else{
                 item = new Item(retrieveProfileImage, setUserName, setStatus, currentUserID);
            }
            RootRef.setValue(item).addOnCompleteListener(new OnCompleteListener<Void>() {
                @Override
                public void onComplete(@NonNull Task<Void> task) {
                    if (task.isSuccessful()) {
                        SendUserToMainActivity();
                        Toast.makeText(SettingsActivity.this, "Profile Updated Successfully", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    } else {
                        String message = task.getException().toString();
                        Toast.makeText(SettingsActivity.this, "Error:", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    }
                }
            });
        }
    }

Noted that I am passing the Uri to firebase. So when you want to retrieve, you will get a valid url.

Item
Java
package com.example.chatterbox;

public class Item {

    String  image;
    String name;

    public String getImage() {
        return image;
    }

    public void setImage(String image) {
        this.image = image;
    }

    public String getName() {
        return name;
    }

    public void setName(String name) {
        this.name = name;
    }

    public String getStatus() {
        return status;
    }

    public void setStatus(String status) {
        this.status = status;
    }

    public String getUid() {
        return uid;
    }

    public void setUid(String uid) {
        this.uid = uid;
    }

    String status;
    String uid;


    public Item(String resultUri, String setUserName, String setStatus, String currentUserID) {

        this.image = resultUri;
        this.name = setUserName;
        this.status = setStatus;
        this.uid = currentUserID;

    }

    public Item() {

    }
}
