Android :: Camera / SurfaceView App Returns Icon Not Emulator Checkerboard Image

Sep 29, 2010

I'm using the android SDK in Eclipse on Linux. I've used the code at to write an app to store an image captured through the camera onto SD card (there are various examples of this around). It works ok except that the image returned by the camera is not what's on the preview surface. Instead of getting the checkerboard image I expect, I get different versions of the android icon depending on which version of target I choose. If I render the image to an ImageView this is confirmed as it's the same as on the SD card.

Android :: Pick Image From Gallery / Emulator Returns To Home Screen

May 7, 2010

I have seen a lot of posts about this, and it seems like the code below should work. I have created an SD Card image and added it to the emulator (and that works fine).

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK);
startActivityForResult(intent, 1);

It does launch and allow selection of images, but when I click on an image, everything exits and the emulator returns to the home screen, not back to my app. My onActivityResult is never called either. What am I missing?

Android :: Camera - Icon Image Resource For Take Picture Button?

Dec 8, 2009

On the G1 camera app, there's a handsome looking camera button which you can press to signal the app to take the picture. It's a round button with a little camera icon in it. Is that button resource available in android.R? I'd like to use it in my own app if possible?

Android :: Taking A Picture With Camera - Without SurfaceView

Oct 28, 2010

Hi Guys! I'm coding a little app, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The App does the following: - Launches a Service which listens for an sms, then captures a picture with the cam and sends it to a predefined email adress. (no, i'm not trying to spy somebody out... I'm using the app to get a "3G-Webcam", sort of at least)

The problem: My App works great in the emulator, but as soon as I try it on my HTC Magic (cm6, android 2.2) it stops working.


The permissions are all set, even the write to SD-card. What am I missing?

Note: I'm not using a surfaceview. Code:

Android :: Put Camera Preview Inside A Surfaceview In An Activity Xml Gui

Aug 27, 2009

I just got my camera preview working for my app, but it is not appearing where I want it to appear, and I'm not sure how to get it there. Instead of using the entire screen for the preview, I would like to put it inside a surfaceview in an activity xml gui. What do I need to change? Here is my code:

public class TakePic extends Activity {

SurfaceView camSurface;

Preview camPreview;


protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);//hide window title

camPreview = new Preview(this); //create preview


setContentView(camPreview); //set preview as activity content

camSurface = (SurfaceView) findViewById(; }

Android : Way To Handle Camera Preview Data Without A SurfaceView?

Mar 25, 2009

I want to receive the data from the preview of the Camera, but without having to set a SurfaceView with a SurfaceHolder in the view of my application. I want to do something like this: Camera cam =; cam.setPreviewCallback(new MyPreviewCallback()); cam.startPreview(); This will not work because I need to call setPreviewDisplay (SurfaceHoler) before I start the preview. I can get a SurfaceHolder from a SurfaceView, but I don't want a SurfaceView, because I don't need one. I just want to handle the preview data by myself.

Android : How Can I Add Portrait Layout On Top Of Landscape Camera SurfaceView?

Apr 19, 2010

My application should hold a camera preview surface. The camera is fixed to landscape view via AndroidMainfest.xml I am quite new to the Android plattform programming. Of course I don't know much about the programming tricks and workarounds yet. I did a lot of research over the last two weeks (even studied the native Camera implementation), but couldn't find a good solution so far.

Android :: Using Phone Camera Via Intent / Activity Never Returns?

Oct 18, 2010

I'm using the phone's camera in an Android app to take a photo. I'm using Intents to use the built-in camera application.It works fine and the camera is brought up. I can take a photo and the phone presents me with three options: Cancel, Retake, OK. The first two work, pressing cancel returns the user to the app, but pressing OK and nothing happens. Apparently onActivityResult isn't being called, and the camera just stays on the screen. Nothing in the debugger either.Running the app on a Nexus One with Android 2.2.1. Same problem on the emulator running Android 2.0.

Camera - Intent Returns Null?

Mar 27, 2012

I have an android application which contains multiple activities. In one of them I'm using a button which will call the device camera :

public void onClick(View view) {
Intent photoIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
startActivityForResult(photoIntent, IMAGE_CAPTURE);[code]....

The problem is that the intent data is null and the OnActivityResult method turns directly to the (resultCode == RESULT_CANCELED) and the application returns to the previous avtivity.How can I fix this issue and after calling the camera, the application returns to the current activity which contains an ImageView which will contains the picture taken?

Android :: Emulator - ERROR - User Data Image Is Used By Another Emulator

Apr 13, 2010

Finally strace gave me this:


And several other attempts to call "link" that also fail (sshfs does not support hard links).

Is it possible to change the emulator's behavior to create lock files somewhere in /tmp (using some hash of image path as lock file name)? I am OK to try this myself: which repositories from are necessary to rebuild the emulator alone, and where in the sources is the code responsible for image locks?

Android :: SurfaceView Vs Custom View / SurfaceView Is Slower

Aug 20, 2010

One using a Surfaceview, and the other using a custom view. According to the android SDK development guide, using a surface view is better because you can spawn a separate thread to handle graphics. Th SDK development guide claims that using a custom view with invalidate calls is only good for slower animations, less intense graphics.However, in my simple app, I can clearly see that using a custom view with calls to invalidate seems to render faster.What do you guys know/think about this?My touchEvent code is exactly the same, and my drawing code is exactly the same. The only difference is that one is all in the UI thread, and the other is using a tread to handle the drawing.

Android :: Icon Image Rotate Positions In Contacts?

Jan 10, 2010

I thought it may have been my eyes, when I thought I saw an upside-down Android icon for a contact the other day, on my Android 1.5 device - Samsung Moment. I was playing with contacts just now, and I saw the upside down icon again. Then I was curious, went to see other contacts, and I noticed the Android icon facing right, then facing left in other instances. There is no rhyme or reason as to when the Android icon will change positions, but it is there.

Android :: Enabling Camera In Emulator

Jun 19, 2009

I've just noticed that launching the Camera and Camcorder (in the emulator) would result in a black screen (instead of the famous moving small boxes), i've looked for why this happening on the net, apparently that the camera is disabled by default when you create an AVD. Decided to create another AVD with the camera enabled and launched it and still getting that black screen. Anyone has any idea how to fix this ?

My problem in the first place is that my application is using the default camera application using intents just like in the following: Intent imageCaptureIntent = new Intent (MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE); imageCaptureIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(new File("/sdcard/imageCaptureIntent.jpg"))); startActivityForResult(imageCaptureIntent, WHATEVER_REQ_CODE); I thought that there's a problem in my intent request but like i said before, running the camera on the emulator itself is the problem. By the way, You can run the "camera preview" in the API demos with no problems, how come!
