How to change statistic text to String?

guys. I want to replace the statistical code for code that can receive text from strings.xml (in this case "App Name":

private final static String APP_TITLE = "App name";

This is full code.

Thank you!

P.S. Nope, getString doesn't work(


If you want to change a property value, don't make it final static. Instead you should do :

private  String appTitle = "App name";

If I understand you correctly you want a static String field to contain a value from resources? You cannot initialize a static string from resources because resources are not available at that point. What you can do is

private static final int RES_ID = R.String.app_name;

and call getString(RES_ID) anywhere you would call APP_TITLE (or just once and save to a variable)

Your main problem is you don't have a context to get resources. This can be solved by getting a context before this field is initialized. A possible workaround for this is to create an Application class, set it's context to a static field, then used this field in your Activty to get the desired string.

Application class:

public class AppContext extends Application {

   public static Context cntx;
    public void onCreate() {

Register it in the manifest:

        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
            android:label="Test" >
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />


public class Main2Activity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private final static String APP_TITLE = AppContext.cntx.getResources().getString(R.string.app_name);

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        Button b = (Button) findViewById(;
