Using the Astro file manager
« on: Nov 19, 2010, 08:47 PM »
Per Chuck's request, here is a short how-to on using the Astro file manager to download a file. This is how it works on my device. Your experience may vary. Also, on my device, the built in browser and the Dolphin browser work much the same way. This tutorial is created using the Dolphin browser. Please note that as of this writing, Chuck is writing code to allow downloading files directly into Mintoris Basic if the forum is viewed using forum option of Basic's reference.

First, bring up the forum post that has the file you wish to download, and touch the file you wish to download. Files will be located below the text of the post.



Now, you are able to edit the filename before the file is saved. Once the filename is how you want it, touch the [Ok] button.



Next, your file downloads into the /sdcard/download directory, as shown in the downloads history.



Now, start the Astro file manager and navigate to the /sdcard/download directory. Find the file that was downloaded.



Touch and hold on the file entry to popup up the context menu. Then touch [Edit].



The context menu changes. Now touch the Move option. You may choose [Copy] instead - of you do, the following instructions are still the same.



Now, navigate to the /sdcard/Mintoris.basic directory and touch the [Edit] icon at the top of the screen.



Next, from the popup context menu, touch [Paste].



You're all done ;D

Thanks Jesse for posting this.  I asked Jesse to write this post because I think the Astro file manager is a great sidekick for Mintoris Basic.  It is a great way to work with your Basic program and data files.  It is much easier to do all these tasks with your phone mounted to your PC, but Astro is handy "on the go".

Can you create a file folder and put certain photos in it? I can't find how to do that. I'm trying to organize my pictures and videos into categories. Thanks.

Check out the WiFi File Explorer pro on Google Play. It lets you use your internet browser on your pc to browse your sdcard on your phone. It lets you do everything.

Hi,

I think I had an issue with a mpmx hex file I use the same programmer too. Try reinstalling micropro, and recompile the source code in microchip's compiler.

Good Luck
