Android :: How To Calculate Angle Between Line Defined By Two Points

Apr 20, 2010

I'm currently developing a simple 2D game for Android. I have a stationary object that's situated in the center of the screen and I'm trying to get that object to rotate and point to the area on the screen that the user touches. I have the constant coordinates that represent the center of the screen and I can get the coordinates of the point that the user taps on. I'm using the formula outlined in this forum: How to get angle between two points?

-It says as follows "If you want the the angle between the line defined by these two points and the horizontal axis:
double angle = atan2(y2 - y1, x2 - x1) * 180 / PI;".
-I implemented this, but I think the fact the I'm working in screen coordinates is causing a miscalculation, since the Y-coordinate is reversed. I'm not sure if this is the right way to go about it, any other thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Android :: Debugging In Eclipse / Current Line Wrong For Methods With Multiple Return Points

Apr 2, 2009

While doing debugging with Eclipse I noted that the debugger highlights the wrong line as "next line to execute" for methods with multiple return points. It fools the developer that the last line of the method is executed, where in fact it is not.Does anyone know if this is some kind of known issue? My colleagues have also experienced this but we have never seen it when doing on- device-debugging on e.g. the Sony Ericsson SDK.I couldn't find anything at http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/list There was a similar post in android-beginners 2007-11-25. No replies, though. http://groups.google.com/group/android-beginners/browse_thread/thread.

Android :: Do MapView Overlays Get Painted At Angle

Oct 9, 2009

When an overlay is put on a MapView, the shadow suggest that its at an angle and not flat on the map.

I have been creating scaled bitmaps to overlay on a mapview, but i am either geting the scale wrong or the overlay is being painted at a slight angle, sitting up a bit, rather then being flat to the map.

Does anyone know if this is true? and if so, is there a way to stop it painting at an angle or do you know the angle so i can compensate for it when creating the bitmapped overlay?

Android :: Rotation Angle Of Entire Mobile Phone While Using

Oct 14, 2010

I'm working on an Android program for my research. It needs to find out the angle while user using my mobile phone. The angle here is like a rotation angle of entire mobile phone, not the widgets in layout.

I've tried keyword "angle" on
http://developer.android.com/reference/packages.html

And I found a method "onSensorChanged" under public interface SensorListener. But the description there is too hard to me to understand. Is it the function I want?

HTC EVO 4G :: Front-Facing Camera Angle

Jun 12, 2010

I've just been fooling with the front facing camera and I noticed something that maybe some of you can explain more thoroughly. When I have the camera held vertically, the alignment is great, but when I turn the phone horizontally the image has a funny angle. It is almost like the lens is angled to the right, which would mean that it is slightly angled down when held vertically. Am I just getting goofed up by the "mirror image" issue? This isn't a problem, but it does make self portraits while being horizontally held pretty weird.

HTC EVO 4G :: Any Charger With Wire At Right Angle To Plug?

Jun 14, 2010

Anyone know of a charger where the wire is at a right angle to the plug? In almost every case, there is too much tension on the cord when plugged in to keep it standing on the kickstand. Also, in the car, a right-angled charger would be useful for me. I found a right-angle auxiliary input for the stereo, and that helps some. Previously, I had one big plug coming straight out of the bottom, and another coming straight out of the top.

General :: Google Maps Navigation Viewed At Angle?

Jul 25, 2012

When using Google Maps Navigation, how do you get it so as you're following the directions the maps is viewed at and angle so you can see further ahead on the map. Also how do you have the screen/map turn as the car turns?

Right now it's just looking down and with no angle/tilt on the arrow and the orientation stays "north up" all the time. It used to do this.

Samsung Vibrant :: Macro And Wide Angle Lens Attachment

Aug 20, 2010

Has anyone tried using the EVO 4G lens on their Galaxy S?
Macro Lens Attachment

It was mentioned that the diameter of the lens is 13 mm, which is about the diagonal length of the little square on our Galaxy S/Vibrant. (Captivate has a round lens, so you guys should be able to glue on the metal ring easily) So we might have a bit of problem attaching the metal ring that comes with the macro lens. I really do want a wide angle lens for my phone though. I can think of plenty of use for it. (I know about the DVD lens DIY, but I don't happen to have a old DVD-rom lying around at the moment.)

Motorola Droid :: Phone Charge At Certain Angle - Sbf Back To Stock

Jun 19, 2010

Well my Droid quit charging, the only time I can get it to charge is when I hold the charger into my phone at a certain angle, same thing I gotta do when I flash sbf with rsd lite onto my Droid. I'm gonna miss this thing. But hopefully, with warranty, I'll have a brand new one in my pocket by this evening. What's funny about it is, I'm planning on getting the Droid x when it comes out. Lol, so I guess I'll have a basically brand new Droid to get rid of when the time comes. Sent from my Droid using Tapatalk

Android :: User Defined Application Properties?

Aug 28, 2009

Where is the right place to specify general user-defined properties, like a host address or a service mail address ? The properties should be accessible from my activities.

I would like to specify such attributes within the AndroidManifest.xml, but there seems to be no elements available for user-defined properties. So the only way may be to put such properties into a resource file as strings or to hide them into the source code...

Android :: Get User Defined Environment Variables?

Sep 20, 2010

I would like to use self defined Environment variables in my source code.

I use System.getenv() to do this and the code line looks like this. Log.d("MyTest","== MyEnv " + System.getenv("AP") + " ANDROID_ASSETS:" + System.getenv("ANDROID_ASSETS"));

Before I execute my code I define my AP variable with export: export AP="12345" and the this is my output of set command

ANDROID_ASSETS=/system/app
ANDROID_BOOTLOGO=1
ANDROID_DATA=/data
ANDROID_PROPERTY_WORKSPACE=9,32768
ANDROID_ROOT=/system
AP=12345

Then I execute my code and I get this line from logcat

D/MyTest( 5363): == MyEnv null ANDROID_ASSETS:/system/app

The value for my defined Environment variable is null. Any suggestions on why it didn't work?

Android :: Receive A SMS From Defined Number In An Invisible Way?

Sep 24, 2010

In my android application that is now working fine, I am sending custom SMS from a user to other one.

But now, I do not want the SMS application to detect this message as it is totally useless for the user.

So what I would like to do:
As soon I receive it, I get the text and avoid the system to get it ( or at least stop the notification for this message)

Any Idea on how to do? code....

Android :: Need To Calculate Rotation Vector

May 18, 2010

I need to calculate a rotation vector out of the data i get from Sensor.TYPE_ORIENTATION. The sensor data is defined like this: the values have to be recalculated to become a correct 3d position: values[0]: Azimuth, angle between the magnetic north direction and the Y axis, around the Z axis (0 to 359). 0=North, 90=East, 180=South, 270=West values[1]: Pitch, rotation around X axis (-180 to 180), with positive values when the z-axis moves toward the y-axis. values[2]: Roll, rotation around Y axis (-90 to 90), with positive values when the x-axis moves away from the z-axis need all three values like the Z axis value (from 0 to 360 degree). I tried a lot but cant figure out how to do this :/ So i bet there is a simple solution how to recall the values of sensor.TYPE_ORIENTATION to make them a 3d rotation vector, but i just dont know how to do it. If you know the answer please tell me. Code...

I have noticed that based on the different screen sizes of phones (or density), the TextView is rendered accordingly. I want to be able to calculate the exact height and width rendered.
