Android :: Android - Keeping Options Menu Open After User Clicks On Menu Item

Nov 19, 2010

I have an Options menu up and running in my Android application and I've overridden the onCreateOptionsMenu, onOptionsItemSelected and onPrepareOptionsMenu methods to customize the menu a little. My question is related to keeping the Options menu open after the user clicks on a menu item. Basically, I'd like to be able to hide the menu until the user clicks on the device menu key. Once the user clicks on this key, I'd like to be able to hold the menu in place regardless of how many times the user clicks on menu items. If the user wants to hide the Options menu, they'd just need to click on the device menu key again. Is this type of interaction supported (or even advisable).

Android :: Open Context Menu For Specific Item Of List

Jul 17, 2009

I am using openContextMenu() when someone clicks on an item of a list (not when they long press as usual). The context menu does appear, however, it shows the context menu for the last item that the context menu had appeared. For example, if I long press the item C of the list then the context menu for item C appears, and later if I click on item B, with openContextMenu() the context menu for item C will again appear, not for B that I was expecting. How can I set the current item for which the context menu will appear to be the item of the list the user clicks on? I do have the position from onListItemClick() and I was trying to find a call like setContextMenuItem() or something, but I can't find anything.

Android :: Set Options Menu Up - Only 2 Buttons Per Row?

Aug 4, 2010

I was trying to set up my options menu so that there would be 2 buttons on the 1st and 2nd row and then 1 button on the 3rd row. Here is the code I was trying to use but I'm guessing groupID argument isn't what I thought it was.

menu.add(1, MENU_NAME, 1, "by Name");
menu.add(1, MENU_NUMBER, 2, "by Number");
menu.add(2, MENU_POSITION, 1, "by Position");
menu.add(2, MENU_COLLEGE, 2, "by College");
menu.add(3, MENU_UPDATE, 1, "Update Roster");

Maybe this is solved somehow with the XML Layout but I'm not really good with the layouts ;( So I managed to not get too far that way either.

Android :: Options Menu With SurfaceView And ListView

Jul 7, 2010

In my application, I have extended SurfaceView and ListView. I create a LinearLayout as below

mainForm = new LinearLayout(this); mainForm.setOrientation(LinearLayout.VERTICAL); mainForm.setLayoutParams(new LinearLayout.LayoutParams( LinearLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT));

I then add the SurfaceView and ListView to the mainForm and then setContentView(mainForm);

I also override onPrepareOptionsMenu and call menu.clear() and then dynamically create menus each time the menu button is pressed by the user. The application loads fine and the SurfaceView works fine as I directly draw images to it in a sleep loop. The ListView displays items and is desined to refreshed with new items. The options menu also displays once as well................................

MenuInflater inflater = getMenuInflater();
menu.removeItem(R.id.stop);
