    Default how to use getResources() in setters and getters

    I would like to break my app down into more java classes but not sure how to do this.

    In my main class ( imgGameBoard[x] ) "is a large array of Image View's"

    GameBoardClass.imgGameBoard[x].setImageDrawable(getResources().getDrawable(R.dra wable.cat_picture));

    I would like to use this in my other java classes but don't know how

    something like this
    ImageView img[];
    for (int x = 0; x < GameBoardClass.imgGameBoard.length; x++){
    img[x]= GameBoardClass.imgGameBoard[x];

    }
    img[x].setImageDrawable(getResources().getDrawable(R.dra wable.cat_picture));

    any basic example of this working would be great

    don't know how
    Have you tried coding it?
    What happens when you try it?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    All the code works but " (getResources()."
    As its in red and needs some code in the bracket
    To use the active.Imageview findview.by.id( main class ) in a second class

    If I can't work it out I will use fragments as there built for this

    (getResources()."
    As its in red
    Do you get a compiler error message that says what is wrong?
