Reads text from a file in storage. Prefix the fileName with / to read from a specific file on the SD card (for example, /myFile.txt will read the file /sdcard/myFile.txt ). To read assets packaged with an application (also works for the Companion) start the fileName with // (two slashes). If a fileName does not start with a slash, it will be read from the application’s private storage (for packaged apps) and from /sdcard/AppInventor/data for the Companion.

I think you need to test as apk.And try:

I have already saw in kodular docs :sweat_smile:

Yes.Can you show me your blocks?Also did you asked for READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

Did you build or just test in the Companion? Either way, if I’m correct, Kodulars file component prepends /storage/emulated/0 to your file. Can you test just /File2String/File.txt after creating the file for me?

@Mohamed_Tamer may have been correct by this post if you haven’t tried it yourself @Business_World.


I already told him that :grin: or i understood you wrong?

Try this:
FileTest.aia (13.2 KB)

Which is why I gave you credit for the original solution… because I don’t like when people mark others responses as a solution when I originally gave it to them, so I feel that others take it the same way as I do.
