Android :: App / Widget That Can Be Used To Make A Larger Button?

Is there an app or widget that can be used to make a larger button? I'd prefer a 2x2 size that I can use to direct dial while driving rather than having to fiddle with the small 1x1 size, but anything bigger than the standard would be fine.

I've only found apps that make smaller buttons and one that makes me select subsequent options before I can actually call. I just want a large single press widget.

Android :: App To Make Everything Larger On The Screen
Any apps that will make everything larger on the screen in Android?

I have found something that makes the fonts bigger but what about the rest of the stuff including icons, address book and so on?

I need to be able to see the stuff on the screen.

IF I have a choice, should I go android or windows and why should I chose one over the other?

Android :: How To Make A Button From An Image PNG?
I'd like to know how to make a button out of a PNG and display it on my canvas (using drawBitmap?). When I click on this button, it will take me to a new activity. All this will be in the onClickListener. So, how do I take a PNG, make a button with it, and draw it on my canvas? I looked at ImageButton, but I'm unsure how it works or how to draw it on the canvas.

Android : Way To Make A Button / Drawable Remain Clicked
I have a GridView with a BaseAdapter that cycles through the elements making views for each element or cell in the grid.

What I would like to do is create a clickable image/button, and when the user clicks or touches it, for it to remain clicked and highlighted so that they make click on several if they so choose.

I have tried, ImageButtons, Buttons, ImageViews, LayerDrawables(with a swapable background color drawable), ToggleButtons, CheckBoxes, derived my own CompoundButton, but nothing seems to work.

I was a teeny bit successful with a ImageButton where I could create it selected, but if the user clicked on it, I couldn't get that visual state back.

Android :: Implement Button In Widget?
I try to create a widget and I am now wondering how to be able to put a button on my widget and set its "onClickListener". It seems that we are limited to the RemoteViews... OK I can deal with that (but this is a limitat to me) but I'd like to add a button where the user can request an update on the data displayed in the widget. (I get some info on the web but the user only needs to request an update, I can't defined an automatique update, it's useless for my app) I'm sure we can do that since there is an example with a player and obviously with a PLAY/PAUSE button. I was looking for in the remoteViews API btu without finding anything.

Android : Want To Make A Listener For A Datepickers Cancel Button In Droid?
I'm using a datepicker in Android to let the user to choose the date. I want it to do one thing if the user picks a date and sets it (I have that working fine) and then to clear a certain text field if the user pushes the cancel button on the datepicker (open up the datepicker but then cancel out of it).

The way I've been trying is by making a code...

to attach the listener.

My problem is that the listener works if the user pushes the back button, but not if they push the cancel button. I tried using a dismiss listener, and that works, except for the fact that it goes off even whether I set or cancel the datepicker!

What do I need to do so something goes off if and only if I push the cancel button on my datepicker?

Android : Need To Make A Custom Button Shape Keep Systems Colors

Obligatory code...

Android :: Make NumberPicker Usable Widget
I know I could use it and I think others have mentioned they would like to use it in their apps. Currently it is "internal" so we're not supposed to use it and we have to "roll our own" which is a pain (I've done it). Also why does DatePicker only have a 200 year range (1900-2100)? Even the date gadget that the Pocket PC has goes back as far as mid 1700s.Add a range option on it.

Android :: Use An Activity Or A Service When Using A Button In A Widget?
I have made a Android Widget which displays two articles (title + image). In addition to this, I have buttons for flipping backward and forward through the articles. What I don't understand is how I can change the Widgets RemoteViews when the buttons are pressed. Which should be one of the most basic operations in a widget, however, I can't seem to figure it out.

So... Can I do this with just a OnClickListener in the AppWidgetProvider? Or do I have to create an Activity without a window (visibility = false)?

Android :: How To Make A Widget That Doesn't Drain Battery?
I want to make (yet another) news widget. Initially I thought it was enough to: 1. Download all the news articles 2. Update the widget every 5 seconds to change the currently displayed article using Alarm Manager (Alarm Manager.RTC) 3. Update the widget every 30-60 minutes to get new articles. This worked great on the first try but battery was quickly drained. I checked the logs and it turned out that the widget did the 5 second updates even if the screen was off. This was a surprise to me since the docs states: "..set an alarm with an Intent that your AppWidgetProvider receives, using the Alarm Manager. Set the alarm type to either ELAPSED_REAL TIME or RTC, which will only deliver the alarm when the device is awake. " I guess the device is considered "awake" even if screen is off? I found the same issue here: I then checked the standard news widget and the other news widgets most popular on the Android Market and I see that they have services running all the time. Maybe because they want to handle the broadcast event when the screen is turned off? So is this really the best solution to have a service running in the background? So if someone downloads 10 different news widgets from different companies they end up with a list of 10 services in the "Running services" list?

Android :: Button Click Does Not Start Service In App Widget
I'm having trouble starting a Service to update an AppWidget that I'm creating as an exercise. I'm trying to get the latitude and longitude of spoofed location data from DDMS to display in the widget. The widget uses a service to update the TextView, which may be slightly overkill, but I wanted to follow the template that seems to be common in AppWidgets that do more work (like the Forecast widget or the Wiktionary widget).

Right now, I'm not getting any error messages or strange behavior; nothing at all happens when the button is pressed. I'm a bit mystified as to what might be wrong. Could anyone out there point me in the right direction?

Additionally, if my logic for location is faulty, I'd love recommendations on that too. I've looked at several blogs, the Google examples, and the documentation, but I feel a little fuzzy on how it works.

Here is the current state of the widget:
