Android :: Drawing Text Upside Down

Apr 5, 2010

I'm trying to build a custom clock view in Android. See image http://twitpic.com/1devk7.So far to draw the time and hour markers I have been using the Canvas.rotate method to get the desired effect. However, notice that it is difficult to interpret the numbers in the lower half of the clock (e.g. 6 or 9?) because of the angle in which they are drawn.When using drawText, is it possible to draw the text at 45/90/180 degrees so that all text appears upright when my onDraw method has finished?

Android :: Drawing Word-wrapped Text At Arbitrary Position On A Canvas

Jan 16, 2010

I believe I know the basics and have successfully published a nice graphical game (Tairu). I know about inflating an xml layout and instantiating views that work.

For my current project, I really just want something similar to the Windows 'DrawText' function where it will draw a bit of a text inside an arbitrary rectangle of the surface, and do word wrap within that rectangles boundaries. That's what I really WANT, but I can't find any form of drawText that will wrap.

So, while that's what I WANT, I can accept the thought of programmatically instantiating a TextView (which wraps beautifully). But I still need to be able to provide the rectangle, which is highly dynamic. (which is why I want to call a form of drawText inside of my onDraw method). In this particular case, I have something which is static to a particular view instance (I mean, the View becomes visible, the position is set, and does not change after that. but the text position is dependent on game state and cannot be pre-determined inside an XML layout). So in this one case, I could afford the expense of runtime recalculation of the layout when the view is displayed.

OK, fine. So I do something like this:

CODE:......

Pretend you didn't see 'AbsoluteLayout' there, I am desperate and have tried all possible layout classes

main_frame is defined in my main XML layout (it is the outermost layout, fills the parent, and, as I said, I've tried all the offered layouts)

With this code, the textView appears, but along the top of the layout, and not using the width I provided either.

Adding, out of desperation.

CODE:.......

makes no difference. In fact, so far, NOTHING has made any difference. So I thought, ok, while this seems like a useful thing to be able to do, I can accept if it can't. I accept that it is impossible to provide dimensions in advance and that you have to override the measure and layout callbacks then requestLayout and in your overrides, force the final layout for the TextView.

Of course, that is completely unacceptable for my FIRST desire (a drawText that wraps to a rectangle, called from onDraw as needed). But the point is I feel something like that OUGHT to work, and it doesn't, so clearly this is MY fault.

Getting back to what I WANT, I guess I can do it myself by repeated calls to measure text and parsing the string for spaces until I get the N characters which fit on the first line, then repeat for additional lines, calling a normal drawText for each line (and using textMetrics to determine the vertical offset to the next line.)

But why wouldn't that method already exist? I promise not to fill the screen with a zillion calls, and/or to cache pre-rendered text on some bitmap somewhere if antialiased drawText is too expensive to repeat frequently.

Android :: Rotating TextView Upside Down

Jul 24, 2009

I'm trying to find a way to rotate a View, or (more conveniently) an entire layout, upside down and have it stay that way. I found the rotation and animation classes in the SDK, and these come close to what I want, but at the end of the animation I want my Layout to stay rotated; repeating the animation or just flipping back right- side-up doesn't help me with my app unfortunately.The only thing I can think of so far would be to find the source code for the rotate class, and override it such that the "...and then flip it back around to be right-side-up" code never happens. I'm not sure exactly where I'd find the original rotate code for reference if I were to do something that extensive however.I've found references online to the full android source - is that basically what I'd be looking at downloading to be able to attempt something like this? Am I missing a simple option on the rotation that would let it just stay put after I rotate it? Any help would be very much appreciated!

HTC Hero :: Turning Phone Upside Down

Aug 6, 2009

does this put the phone in silent mode whatever you are doing or does it only silent an incoming call?For me its hit and miss.it will ring/vibrate upside down, so then i have to turn it the right way and then turn it back upside down for it to go silent.this would have been ideal for me when in meetings, but if it only works if you turn it upside down when you get a call its not as useful.

One thing bugs me though. I've had to set ro.fs.fakerotation to 180 so that my tablet auto-rotates correctly, but in "recent apps" all of the thumbnails are upside-down.

I have a feeling it may be a matter of modifying systemui.apk but I'm not sure.

Motorola Droid :: Hold Phone "upside Down" While Keyboard Is Out

Nov 20, 2009

What do you guys think about having a special setting for the droid in snesoid(or any emulator). The setting would let you hold the phone "upside down" while the keyboard is out(make the screen the screen show upside down as well of course). That way its the tradional.dpad on left and buttons on right. I sent this to the programmer.but no luck. I dont think it would be too hard to keep your hands away from the screen and still play comfortably.

Android :: Drawing And Animating?

Nov 5, 2010

This is more of a question about animating than a specific problem coding. i need to fill in the broad strokes left by the research i've been doing.

What i'm trying to do:

The activity should load with only the a togglebutton visible. when the button is touched, a png will be animated to a certain position relative to the togglebutton. also, another button will slide in from off screen and slide off if/when the togglebutton is pressed again.

What i can't figure out:

I can draw an image, but only via xml. creating an imageview and setting the background programmatically does nothing.

When i draw from xml, i can't move the image when the togglebutton is pressed like i want to. when i call getPositionOnScreen() i get a null pointer, even though the complier can see i'm referring to the imageview described in both xml and in code.

I'm calling getPositionOnScreen because via xml, i have the image positioned behind the togglebutton so that it's not visible until the button has been pressed and the image starts moving. the idea is that with different screen sizes i won't know exactly where the view is until runtime. getPostionOnScreen allows me to get the coordinates of the imageview so i know where it has been positioned. when i have a start position, can tell it to "move up" on the screen from behind the togglebutton by simply adding to x or y until it's where i want.

This is the code to draw the image (inserted in the onCreate method).

CODE:.......

This is the code i'm using to animate. when the button is clicked, it calls this method on the view from the listener.

CODE:...............

I'm well aware that this is horribly wrong and won't work. what i need to understand is why.

Android : App That 'animates' Drawing?

Apr 18, 2010

I'm trying to learn about Android programming by rewriting a C app I've moved from DOS to X-windows to Windows as a learning tool. It's just a silly little app that draws symmetrical 'game of life' patterns on the screen in a kaleidoscopic fashion. It's structured so that the patterns do their own animations. I.e. there's a 'Life' class that produces the next generation and redraws itself from the center outward, inserting delays to produce a kaleidoscopic effect.

I've got it so that the patterns draw - I took the LunarLander sample as a starting point, and an drawing on a SurfaceView. But my problem is with timing the 'animations'. I'm not doing traditional animation, where I build a whole frame and then draw it, but the surface seems to want to draw itself completely on each iteration of my loop, so my inserted sleep's don't insert delay in the right places.

So my questions:

1. Is there a more direct way to write to the screen than via a SurfaceView? If I did that, would the various steps of my 'animation' occur as I drew them, producing the desired effect. 2. If such a drawing method exists, would I be wasting my time learning how to use it? 3. What's the 'standard' way to do this kind of animation?

Android :: Drawing A Nine Patch Image

Nov 29, 2009

I'm trying to create on of these images, but Eclipse won't accept it once I've used the draw9patch tool. I've found other people having the same problem, and saw this comment: I discovered later that the problem I was having was caused by the image not being exactly true to the nine-patch spec as defined in the documentation. Once I fixed the image to have a clean (i.e., no gradients etc) one pixel border it was fine. "'m not much good when it comes to image design. What does this mean, how do I create my original png file to meet the specification for Nine Patch?

Android :: Having Offscreen Drawing Of A View

May 26, 2010

I'm having a small problem with drawing a View offscreen to a Bitmap. The View is created using LayoutInflater.inflate(int resource, ViewGroup root) with null passed to the root parameter. The View has a fixed size (200x180 pixels). I can create a Bitmap for this View either by using the method View.getDrawingCache() or by calling View.draw(Canvas canvas) using a Canvas that in turn has a backing Bitmap. This works fine if the View doesn't change after the inflate. However, if I have a TextView inside my View that I will update, the size of the TextView is never updated regardless of what method I call on the View (requestLayout(), forceLayout() invalidate() etc.). If I display the View on screen directly, everything works fine (sizes are updated as needed, etc.). What is the correct way of drawing Views off screen and being able to update their layout when needed?

Android :: Why Drawing In View Not Take Effect?

Mar 31, 2009

I'm trying to create a custom widget which looks lick HTML table. I chose to derive from TableLayout, which is the subclass of ViewGroup and View. What's confusing me is that the drawing I put into my override of View.onDraw did not take effect, until I moved the codes to the override of ViewGroup.dispatchDraw. I know dispatchDraw is a good place to draw something, but I'm just wondering why there's such difference in my practice?

Android :: Drawing On WVGA Screen?

Jan 7, 2010

I wrote a reading software. I implemented the page turning effect when user tap the screen to turn to next/pre page. The display is ok on G1 (320X200 size) but it can not works well on Droid(480*854 size), the font looks a litter fuzzy, not clear as G1. I explain my codes for page turning:

1) create a canvas A

2) create bitmap.

3) set bitmap on canvas A

4) draw the new page content on canvas A

5) the current showing page has been saved in bitmap before since we do from step 1) to setp 4),

6) In order to implement the turning effect of scrolling from left to right, I draw the old bitmap part and draw the new bitmap part until the whole new bitmap has been drawn. all of bitmaps are drawing by canvas.drawBitmap() in onDraw() function.

7) when step 6) is done, it means the new page has been shown on screen, and the bitmap has been saved to use in next page turning.

The above is the whole actions for my page turning. On G1, no problem. But on Droid phone, the font is not clear, I tried if I directly draw text by canvas in OnDraw() not through bitmap, It is ok, but it can not implement the page turning effect that I need. I don't know why, could you please help me to take a look and tell me where is wrong or miss some steps?

Android :: FrameLayout For Drawing Overlays In Game?

Nov 15, 2010

I've got a game, a custom View class draws my gameboard. I'm thinking of drawing some elements on a separate layer above the gameboard. I could do this in the View's canvas code, but since they won't change frequently, was thinking of introducing a frame layout to display this top layer.I'm not sure which route to take, the only reason I wouldn't do the FrameLayout is because I'm not sure if it has an impact on battery life. Everytime onDraw() is called, the system probably has to do an alpha composition of the two layers. Is that more battery consuming than drawing the elements from that layer myself in my canvas on every frame? Hard to answer since I'm not sure how complex the drawing will be yet, any general opinions?

Android :: Loop Drawing First Graphics To X0 Y0 If More Than 1 Iteration

Anyone have any idea why when i run this for loop to add a graphic to my screen, the first iteration coordinate get discarded if the loop runs more than once?

The problem is when I remove 2 or more graphics from the column, the first 1 that is readded get written to x0 and y0 instead of x64 y64 but the second graphic is correctly added to x64 y128. I am using OnDraw canvas to draw.
