depreciated methods.

Android Studio says: ".getDrawable(page.getImageId())" and .getDrawable() also has a strike through it, will this affect the code?

"Deprecated" doesn't mean "removed (yet)" so it can still be used. If you want to future-proof your code you change it to:

ContextCompat.getDrawable(getActivity(), R.drawable.name)

What is meant by


Do you mean that we should type

Drawable mdDrawable = ContextCompat.getDrawable(page.getImageId(), R.drawable.name);

Please help.

It's the resource id for the Drawable image, which is usually in the form of R.drawable.etc but can be an int variable or result from a method. In the Interactive Story app it should be the image id of the page, i.e., page.getImageId().
