  • as for your imports they seem to be ok
  • as for the value try this: 8115000 if the other one does not work

#22

I tried with 8115000 but it still doesn’t work. I got the “no library found for…” error message.
Manifest looks like this now:

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0" package="">

@boldi999 ==== stupid question… but: can you put some screen shot of your code folder with the jar inside it … I must see its name.
(your manifest is ok)


#24

here is the sketch folder

and the code folder:


#25

@boldi999 ===
ok, try to rename your jar only to “google-play-services.jar”


#26

I tried: still “No library found for…” error


#27

@boldi999 ===
and it compiles??? (except this error - or do you get other errors?)
Anyway i have to have a look to that; i begin to think that the workaround used (old jar) no more works with gradle 3+…


#28

No, it can’t compile beacuse it doesn’t finds the library for those 4 imports which I showed to you above.
Do you have a working jar or a working simple exaple sketch?
anyway here is are the errors:

#29

@boldi999 === sorry, i never used APDE ; as for the jar i begin to think that the last P5 versions does not allow to use r27 or r28. I will verify that ASAP.


#30

@boldi999 === tried with AS, same code (or adapted) and same jar added as dependency: everything works fine; tried again with P5: i dont get your errors but now another one which seems to be caused by gradle


#31

Then is it possible to make it work with apde? If i try a new version (r29 for example) then will it work with apde? Or maybe I should change program. What is ASAP? I haven’t heard about it before.
If it won’t work in APDE then can I easily make it work in P5?


#32

@boldi999 ===
sorry: as i told you i never used APDE…As for trying with P5 android mode, yes, you can; in this case dont try to download r29, try with r27,which was the version i used ago: the problem is that if the errors for import disappear, other errors happen, with graddle ; another solution coul be to update the SDK (google-Play-services) to the last version, r43 or something like that and see if it is possible to find the necessary imports inside this package: it is probably possible but not easy: before r28 all was inside 1 .jar and now there are a lot of modules; that is what i have to verify ASAP: as soon as possible!


#33

@boldi999 ===
bad news; i have updated the google-play-service to r43 and seen that now there is absolutely nothing inside the package: that s done for AS and gradle and it works, but not for p5…


#34

@boldi999 ===
you can get aar files in the google mp2 repository and look inside this file: what you find is a library; is it possible to adapt it to P5??? - i dont know, i have to try…


#35

Then if it’s works with ASAP is this possible: I make an app in APDE and when I finish the app, I put it into ASAP and in it I add the ads?
Can you tell me what’s ASAP? I didn’t find anything about it.


#36

@boldi ===
dont worry about asap: it means only “as soon as possible”…
i have already told that i know noting about APDE
what i am sure is that you can do exactly the same thing with P5 android mode…


#37

I’m so sorry I misunderstood, I thought that asap is something like p5 or apde…
So is there any chance to make p5 work? If I understand there is no library in the new version of gplay services. Did you find any solution?


#38

@boldi999 ===

  • though i am sure that you can use adon easily with AS ( i have done that and it works) i think that the best is to try with P5 if you dont know android native coding.
  • with P5 r27 works (import jar, as you have done) but gradle fires errors–
  • into the mp2 repository inside your SDK you can find play-service .aar and inside it 4 jars; yet, if you unpack the .aar, what you find is a complete app with a manifest and res (which can be imported and added as a library for AS) and till now i cannot see how to use the jars with P5 because these jars are probably using res= here is the point where i am…and going further needs some time…
