Android :: How To Change Label Of Activity Dynamically

Jul 14, 2010

When we create a new activity, in the Android.manifest file, we can set some text for the activity's label. It looks like:

    <activity class="MyActivity" android:label="Some text here!">

Is there anyway to access that programatically and change it during runtime? Regards Dileep

Android :: Launcher Label Vs Activity Title

Aug 15, 2010

I want to give my application launcher icon (the one that is displayed on the startscreen!) a different, shorter caption. It seems the launcher takes its label from the mainfest section about the main activity's label, as here:

<activity android:name="MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_short_name">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>

I already changed the original reference to my app's name @string/app_name to a different, shorter string resource here. BUT - big BUT: this also of course changes this activity's default title! And I did not want that to happen, there's enough space for a long application name! Setting the long title again in onCreate using the setTitle(int) method does no good either, because the short name will be visible to the user for a short time, but long enough to notice!

And - please don't answer my question by refering to a custom titlebar... I do not want to go that long way, just because of a stupid string title! It's a pain to draw a custom title bar for so little effect! Is there no easy way to just give the launcher a different string to display?

Android :: Access / Change Text Label On Tab?

Oct 9, 2010

I have an Android app with 3 tabs in a TabHost (text labels, no images). I set up the tabs like so:

intent = new Intent().setClass(this, AnnouncementsActivity.class);
spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("news").setIndicator("News").setContent(intent);
tabHost.addTab(spec);

I start up a background thread to fetch announcements from my server and I want to update the text label on the tab to tell the user how many new announcements there are. For example, I want to change the text on the Tab to "News (3)". How can I access and change the text label on the tab?

HTC Hero : Way To Change Size Of Icon's Text - Label

Oct 13, 2009

Just got the HTC Hero from Sprint and so far am loving almost everything about it. One question that I hope someone can help me with:Is there a way to change the size of icon's text or label (or perhaps the text itself)? For example, I have a screen with several Google apps on it, but they look like this: "Google M..." (for Google Maps); "Google S..." (for Google Sky), etc. It would be great if I could just change this to "Maps" or "Sky."

Android :: Orientation Change Crash In Tab Activity With List Activity

Jan 21, 2010

When views with different type have same id and screen orientation changes,

either java.lang.ClassCastException: android.view.AbsSavedState$1  or java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Wrong state class -- expecting View State will occur. (depends on the view's order)

Because View.dispatchRestoreInstanceState() checks id only.

You may wonder why anyone would make views with different type to have same id.

But it can happen when you use tab activity.

Imagine you have tab activity with two children activity.

Tab1 is ListActivity and Tab2 is ExpandableListActivity.

Both activity have id of "@android:id/list" but the type of view is different.

This means we cannot use ListActivity & ExpandableListActivit at the same in one tab activity.

Android :: Change Intent Bundle Data Before Activity Recreated After Orientation Change

Jul 30, 2009

I have a notification that starts my activity and passes a messages using the intent's putExtra() function. The message is then displayed to the user in the activity's onCreate function. When the application is restarted due to a orientation change, the message is shown again as it is still in the intent's bundled data.
How can I remove the extra data?

I tried the following:

Bundle bundle = getIntent().getExtras();
if (bundle.getBoolean("showMessage")) {
// ... show message that is in bundle.getString("message")
// remove message
bundle.remove("showMessage");
}

But the message will still be shown after the orientation changed, seems like the intent used is not the one I changed, but the original one. The only workaround I found is to save the showMessage additionally in onSaveInstanceState(). Is there another way? Or is this the way to go?

Android :: Launch Activity At Certain Time

Dec 28, 2009

I'm new to Android development, so I might be missing something obvious. I want to launch an activity when the user's phone clock hits a specified time (similar to an alarm). However, I'm not sure how I would go about doing this as constant polling of the clock seems inefficient and a waste of resources. Do I need to capture broadcast events from the lclock, or use PendingIntents?

HTC Incredible :: GPS Time Change?

Jun 6, 2010

So been using my DInc and have just noticed something pretty annoying. For some reason the GPS in my phone keeps thinking I am in Xuzhou, I think somewhere in China, which wouldnt be so bad but my phones time switches accordingly. This gets to be pretty annoying as it has almost made me late for work a few times. Just wondered if anyone else is having this problem and if it could be tied back to a certain app?

Android :: Changing Content Of Activity Run Time

Jul 24, 2010

I created an activity by using a layout written in a XML file. I would like, in response to some events, to change the content of this activity. I would like to show a VideoView over the content. In response to some other event, I may want to go back to the first content. Would it be possible to switch the content of the activity this way without running another activity (I have another technical difficult in doing that)? I tried using setContentView( videoView), and then switching back with setContentView(T.layout.main), but it seems that, when going back to the main layout, all my buttons and text boxes are created again as they were new. Would it be possible to go back to the last state of all the controls?

Android :: Change Text View At Run Time

Sep 16, 2010

i“m working with a lineal layout and I“m trying to change the text of a TextView but it doesn“t refresh. When I debug I“ve checked that the text have changed correctly.public class Position extends Activity {
Button botonempezar;
Button botonsalir;
TextView text;
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.position);
botonsalir = (Button) findViewById(R.id.salir);
botonempezar = (Button) findViewById(R.id.Empezar);
text = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.Textoposicion);
botonsalir.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
onDestroy();
finish();
} botonempezar.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
searchPosition();
private void searchPosition(){
boolean condition = true;
do{
determinatePosition();
}while(condition == true);
private void determinatePosition(){
this.text.setText("New text");
//this.text.invalidate();
this.text.postInvalidate();
Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), "New text", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);// this doesnt work neither.
Here I post the code of the xml file. Its really silly but it could be the problem:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<TextView
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/Textoposicion"
android:text="PosiciĆ³n desconocida"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_marginTop="20dip"
android:inputType="text">
</TextView>
<Button android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/Empezar" android:text="Empezar"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_marginTop="20dip">
</Button>
<Button
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/salir"
android:layout_marginTop="20dip"
android:text="Finalizar programa"
android:gravity="center" android:layout_width="fill_parent">
</Button></LinearLayout>
I have edited the post because I omitted part of the code to make it simpler but I think I may suppressed the problem too. It runs in a endless loop, could be this the mistake?

Android :: Displaying Real Time Information During The Execution Of An Activity

Apr 6, 2009

I want to display the status of the activity execution on the screen using the TextView while activity is executing. I am appending the String messages at different stages of execution in the TextView, which is  defined in the Layout main.xml (e.g. TextView.append("Server started..").

For e.g. I am running socket communication application in which my android application is the server and it is receiving the messages from the local desktop. So in this application I want to show "Server started.." message when socket server on android started , then a messge "waiting for message.." and then "message receivied.." when message received by android server.All 3 steps are the part of a single activity.

But in my case, I am getting all 3 messages at a time after activity execution completed. Is there any API available, using which I can show the status during the execution also.

Android :: Change Update Time Of Location Overlay

Aug 18, 2010

I am trying to see if anyone knows if it is possible to change the update time of MyLocationOverlay (http://bit .ly /dBIVdj). I have tried subclassing MyLocationOverlay and implementing my own location manager but when that happens I do not see the overlay on the map. I would try overriding the drawMyLocation method however I don't know which canvas to provide the method (since I would be drawing onLocationChange). To summarize, I am looking to do three things in MyLocationOverlay subclass:

1. Change the location update times to whatever I want.

2. Draw the "my location" dot with the radius when the onLocationChanged() method is called.
I've thought about making my own special class with special overlay -- but I feel like there has to be a better method to get what I want out of this class.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Change Delay / Snooze Time On Calendar Reminders?

Does anyone know how to change the delay/snooze time on calendar reminders? (I'm not talking about the default time to remind you ahead of an event).

Right now, if I'm in a meeting or something and I snooze it, it keeps chiming every 5 minutes and gets annoying to the point where I have to dismiss it. Then I run the risk of forgetting it.

Android :: Change Custom Title View At Run Time

But if I try to update any items in the custom title (say change the text of a button or a text view on the title), the update does not take place.

Debugging through the code shows that the text view and button instances are not null and I can also see the custom title bar. But the text on the text view or the button is not updated. Has anyone else faced this problem? How do I resolve it?
