Hi ! Maybe an easy question, but is it possible to get the context from a ViewModel subclass ?

There’s this specific version, don’t know how well it works with Hilt and such: https://developer.android.com/reference/androidx/lifecycle/AndroidViewModel

Thank you very much 🙂 I'll try by subclassing it rather.

why do you want to have the context in your ViewModel? For me, it’s a Code Smell

if you are using hilt, you can inject a context to a ViewModel

@carbaj0 I think you're right. In fact I wanted context to access internal files folder inside it.
@lesincs In fact, I'm not using Hilt in my project. But thank you anyway for the suggestion.
