Remarks

Return a drawable object associated with a particular resource ID for the given screen density in DPI. This will set the drawable's density to be the device's density multiplied by the ratio of actual drawable density to requested density. This allows the drawable to be scaled up to the correct size if needed. Various types of objects will be returned depending on the underlying resource -- for example, a solid color, PNG image, scalable image, etc. The Drawable API hides these implementation details.

Note: To obtain a themed drawable, use Context.GetDrawable(Int32) or Resources.GetDrawableForDensity(Int32,Int32,Int32) passing the desired theme.
