 Hi Guys,

 I am trying to get the last modified date of an internal file and it
always returns me 0 although I could read the file properly. Can you
please let me know if I am doing anything wrong...

Creating a file...
--------------------

FileOutputStream Os = activity.openFileOutput("file1.jpg",
Context.MODE_PRIVATE);
cachedImage.compress(CompressFormat.JPEG, 75, Os);
Os.close();


Reading the file...
--------------------
long mod_time = 0;
File file = new File("file1".jpg");
mod_time = file.lastModified();
FileInputStream Is = activity.openFileInput("file1.jpg");
cachedImage = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(Is);
Is.close();


**mod_time is always zero!!!!**

That is because you are looking at the wrong file. Use new
File(getFilesDir(), "file1.jpg") to get at the same file that you use
with openFileInput()/openFileOutput().
