ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo

public static final class ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo
extends Object implements ContactsContract.DataColumnsWithJoins

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.provider.ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo


A data kind representing a photo for the contact.

Some sync adapters will choose to download photos in a separate pass. A common pattern is to use columns SYNC1 through SYNC4 to store temporary data, e.g. the image URL or ID, state of download, server-side version of the image. It is allowed for the PHOTO to be null.

You can use all columns defined for ContactsContract.Data as well as the following aliases.

Column aliases

Type AliasData column
NUMBER PHOTO_FILE_ID DATA14 ID of the hi-res photo file.
BLOB PHOTO DATA15 By convention, binary data is stored in DATA15. The thumbnail of the photo is stored in this column.
