So here's a question for you guys. I'm new to android and I'm looking for an app or combination of apps that will allow me to do a few things on my home PC. I'd like to be able to do the following from anywhere, not just my home network: -Access my desktop via remote desktop -View (and possibly edit) documents/pdfs on my PC -Stream music from my PC. I've been doing some research and it seems there are a few options for what I'm trying to accomplish, so I'm hoping you folks can point me in the right direction.
I have image in sqlserver db.using ksoap2 client webservice for getting image.there i am converting image into base64 encoding and in mobile i am converting it into base64 decoding but i am unable to get image
whats the problem.how i will get image or any alternative solution for this problem.
I'm creating a simple application for Android which should display an image which is located on remote HTTP server. Which is the best way to do this: should it write the image to some temporary file, or just load it to RAM (in this case, how to load image to ImageView from byte array)?
I defined a remote service over a AIDL file. Now i want to access this service in a different application. But how can I do that? The AIDL file is not accessible in my second application, and if i just copy the AIDL file, then the service can't be found.
When I first ran across PhoneGap, I was excited because I envisioned simply dropping in the URL of a mobile site and simply updating the mobile site to use the devices capabilities when available.
Alas, it seems it is not that easy.
From what I understand (and I could be incorrect), any HTML/JS access to the device's hardware is limited to local 'pages'. So essentially create a HTML/JS local 'web' app to access the 'real' mobile web app by AJAX like calls. It seems a little redundant (at least to me) when the point is to simply extend the interface an existing mobile site.
Not trying to knock PhoneGap here, just wondering if there's a similar framework that allows a remote site to access the phone's hardware directly. Or if I've missed how that can be done with PhoneGap.
(Sure, I know "allows a remote site to access the phone's hardware directly" sounds scary - but the URL is hard-coded in the app, and HTTPS could provide authenticity. Of course, security is probably why this isn't supported by PhoneGap.)
Can someone please help me understand the advantage of using Touchdown to manage my corporate emails, calendar and contacts? We are running on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (on Small Business Server 2008). The phones that are using activesync in our office have to enter a password every time they are brought out of screen saver or sleep mode.This is very annoying and I don't want this. I am currently connecting via my company's Outlook remote web access, not directly to the server. No password entry required. So far, this is working for me. Updates to emails, contacts and calendar are immediate. Emails arrive on the phone typically before they appear in my Outlook.Now, what I am looking for in the way of improvements:
1.Adding a signature to my emails (required for FINRA and SEC compliance). 2. Fixing contacts so they are listed by last name. They are currently in first name order when viewed on the DROID (not in Outlook). 3.Ability to accept meeting invites this is a minor issue.
New proud owner of the droid as of yesterday and the phone is unbelievable.I have been making my way around and search the apps I want/need but I can not seem to find any information easily on any good applications that are able to stream video or music from lets say a media server I am running in my house. any suggestions?Are there also any good remote access programs? free preferably.
The idea is to allow developers to access a remote database provided by google.In android the developer will need a special permission to be set at the manifest file.This could allow applications to keep a backup of users application data without having to sign in ever, seamless.Users could than sign-in to their gmail and see a list of applications that are currently storing data on their gmail space.The user could be allowed to wipe the data or even block the application from storing data to it.This idea make the most sense since Android will be a platform were users will be constantly changing android phones as new better ones come out.
I need to access image file stored in mysql through android application. I stored data in blob format mysql. I have a REST web service to access data from mysql db, after retrieving that the response in JSON format, i am trying to convert it into bitmap, but it is giving null.
added a quick demo video of our upcoming Android Infrared (IR) Remote.Initially it will support a full IR dbase of 300,000+ IR codes, IR learner for any code not in the dbase, Pre-Built GUI so it is simple to setup. Will add rs232, relays, and other tcp options also after initial release.
I'm using HTC Dream and trying to read the images stored in the "default" album folder of this phone. But I've yet to found out what's the folder path to those images file. do you know what's the path to that image folder? What would be the path patterns (if any) in other Android phones? I don't need to set any additional permission to access those files, do I? Do you know how I can build a "file browsing" widget in my activity? I've searched and seems like there is no such widget and I've to install app that does file browsing. In any case, how to incorporate that as a file-browsing view in my current activity?
I have a Nexus one and I have made a bit of a mess of it when loading a custom rom. Previously I'd rooted (without unlocking) the stock (2.2) rom before loading Cyanogen 6, later Cyanogen nightlies and finally eViL-NXSense-v1213. I was rather enjoying the last one but had severe stability issues which I think was due to using Titanium Backup and restoring data. I was in the process of re-imaging to eViL-NXSense-v1213 after clearing the SD card, data and various caches when something seemed to happen to the recovery image. I can get into the boot loader but if I select Recovery it shows the Nexus One logo indefinitely and doesn't respond to the power button being pressed, the same happens if I turn it on from cold.
Is it possible that the recovery image has somehow been corrupted? If so what can I do to restore a recovery image that will enable me to install a custom rom. I would prefer not to unlock the boot loader but will do it if necessary.
I use http://stackoverflow.com/questions/541966/android-how-do-i-do-a-lazy-load-of-images-in-listview/3068012#3068012 to load images in a ListView and a GridView. It works but the images are loaded form bpttom to top. How to fix that?
Bonus Question: Can I use a loading animation in a image view while the real image is loaded? Right now it's just a default image.
I am very new to Android (and Java) originally a C# developer.. and am struggling with the concepts and terminology. I have been through almost all the tutorials and have decided to start on my first test app.The first part of my app is going to involve using the gallery widget (based on the hello gallery tutorial) to display a load of images. (these images will eventually come from the phones camera, but I will cross that bridge later!) My images are currently stored in the drawable folder in my project.As a first step I want to just have the user click on an image and it pops up full screen, just so I know how to get reference to it, but I am struggling. Evetually I want the user to click an image, then a window/activity(?) will open asking them for a bit of text. This will then be store in sqllite against the image. Code...
We can view an image with What if we have some images? How can we put the extras to let the viewer know we have /sdcard/a.jpg, /sdcard/b.jpg, /sdcard/c.jpg ? I hope to do this in a time because starting an activity is very expensive. Code...
I have a scroll view with lots of image buttons. I want to change the image for an image button when it's pressed. The thing is that I want the image to remain until another image button is pressed. That's why I couldn't use a selector. What is the best practice to achieve his?
