Android GridView with database

I've got problem with my grid view. I would like to store images in table and then display them in grid view.

 // ImageAdapter

    String[] strings = db.getPictures();
    Integer[] ints = new Integer[strings.length];
    for (int i=0; i < strings.length; i++) {
        ints[i] = Integer.parseInt(strings[i]);
    return imageView;


 public String[] getPictures(){
    int i=0;

    String selectQuery = "SELECT pictureName FROM Category";
    SQLiteDatabase db = this.getReadableDatabase();
    Cursor c = db.rawQuery(selectQuery, null);
    int rowsNumber=c.getCount();
    String[] mThumbIds;
    mThumbIds= new String[rowsNumber];

    if (c.moveToFirst()) {
        do {
        } while (c.moveToNext());

    return mThumbIds;

And when i run my app it crush at starting. Single string I save like R.drawable.ic_work


As you said you are saving R.drawable.ic_work as string.

The problem is you are using imageView.setImageResource(ints[position]); while R.drawable.ic_work is String.

Solution is instead of storing R.drawable.ic_work as String store it as int because your R.drawable.ic_work represents with an int ID.

In most scenarios, your device wont be able to load a single original image into memory leave alone a list. You need to scale your image before you display it.
