Android :: How To Enable IME Word Auto / Suggest In An EditText?
Sep 25, 2010
I have a text field and when I use the IME (the default one for Nexus One) it doesn't display the auto-suggest line on top of the soft keyboard. Ironically there are posts here on how to prevent the auto-suggest, but in my case it's the revert, it doesn't show up and it's not clear why, Code...
I was wondering if the Hero is suppose to auto suggest names while composing email in landscape mode for example when i am NOT in landscape mode if I start typing the letter m in the "to" box it will list all my contacts with the letter m but if I flip it to landscape mode it will not auto suggest names. Is this normal I could swear it use to auto suggest in both modes...
First of all I'd like to point out that I have posted this in the HTC Desire section because I'm not sure whether my problem is Android or HTC Sense related.I have linked my contacts to their facebook profiles so I can see thier pictures awesome.Except that whenever I compose a new text message and click on the people icon, I get a list of every single one of my facebook friends, and multiple entries for each - one for email, phone etc.Except obviously I only want to text one of the people in my contacts, but keep slecting someone's email address that they've listed on facebook, or the wrong person who shares the same first name. This is highly frustrating - random people appearing in my message recipients list is something I have never had to deal with before in my 10 years as a mobile phone user.
I am loving my Eris and looking forward to the Dec 11 update.
I am just wondering if the auto-suggest dictionary is user-modifiable. I use compact QWERTY (like SureType on BB). When I type "we", what comes out is "qe" which is the default word it wants to use. Perhaps I used it once and saved it? How can I delete the words I don't want popping up anymore (especially the ones I may have added)?
I have been trying to get my EditText box to word wrap, but can't seem to do it.I have deal with much more complicated issues while developing Android applications, and this seems like it should be a straight-forward process.However, the issue remains, and I have a large text box that is only allowing me to enter text on one line, continuing straight across, scrolling horizontally as I enter text.
Our app (WordPress for Android) uses a scrollview for the new post view, where a user enters in their new blog post. There's quite a few fields on this view, including a large EditText for the post content field.
It appears that when an EditText is in a ScrollView, the ScrollView takes over the scrolling action, so the user can't scroll within the EditText area if they are writing a large post. What can be done so that scrolling will work both within the EditText and the ScrollView?
Here is the layout xml for this view, The EditText that needs the scrolling is @id/content:
I have 2 EditText01 and 02. My button will be disable once the activity is started. And when these two EditText box got text inside, the button have to be enabled back. However my button is always disable and can't enable back using, button.setEnabled(true);. code...
My EditText needs to accept input consisting of partial words, names, etc. At least on my HTC Desire, this is difficult since the keyboard wants to suggest and/or correct some entries (e.g., changes "gor" to "for"). I tried setting textNoSuggestions on the view, but that doesn't fix it.
How does the "Allow automatic updating" works? I notice that my apps have "A manual update is required." when I try to enable it. Is it anything I need to do in my codes to enable this to work? Or is it depending on the permissions required by the apps?
In emulator, size of edittext and button looks nice but in motorola milestones, both of them are so small. I think there are different types of screen layout. Is it possible to adjust the size automatically?
I had my physical keyboard open and I started to get word prediction at the bottom of the screen again. But I cant figure out how to get it every time the physical keyboard is open. Most of the time I get nothing but this is the second time I have seen this at the bottom. Anyone know what going on with this. There isn't a setting for it for built in keyboard settings page. I wish it would work all the time because it is a nice feature.
I want to control the system settings "auto brightness", setting it ON or OFF.I'm able to control the brightness level but only if AUTO is OFF. From what I read until now there is a SCREEN_BRIGHTNESS_MODE in Settings.System but only for API level 8 or higher and also not recommended to mess wit it. But currently my phone has Android 2.1 (API 7) and there are widgets that can control this setting (enable/disable auto brightness and set the level). How is this done?
I have just recently moved from Nokia E75 to HTC Desire, and there are lots of stuff on the E75 that I will never miss... But, there are a couple of things I am missing very much, tho. One thing was a very clever feature that saved a lot of battery... On my HTC Desire I have to leave wlan enabled at all time for the phone to utilize wireless at all, and I can see that it's consuming approx 20% of the battery power - even if no apps or widgets are accessing internet.
But on the Nokia E75 it's very different... The wlan is switched off by default, so whenever an application on the E75 needs a data connection (internet), it will quickly enable wlan and check to see if there are any networks nearby it can access, and then disable it again if it doesn't find any. (If no wlan access point is detected, it will go online using the mobile data connection automatically instead)
I want to develop an application that disable the Background Data (new feature in Android 1.5) and Auto Sync and then enable GPRS/EDGE connection and vice versa.
I figured out how to enable/disable GPRS/EDGE by changing the APN settings. (weird solution. However; Android developers couldn't think a user may want to disable GPRS/EDGE) But, I couldn't find a way to enable/disable Auto Sync and Background data.
I investigated the Android code and as I understood, the Sync operation is an intend. So, I wanted to reach with putExtra to the intend and trigger the enabling/disabling. But; I couldn't find the correct keyword.
Is there an app that lets me automatically turn on wifi when I try to connect to the Internet and after a while not using it to disable it? I really need that because I hate toggling wifi and sometimes my sister doesn't disable it and my battery is drained
how to disable this but i have never had my phone actually auto install any of my apps after i install a new ROM or do a hard reset or anything of the sort, i'll have to install all one by one. how or is it possible to enable this?
I have been reading up on the concept of push email, and how it's supposed to be a huge battery saver (since in theory, the phone would only receive a notification of an e-mail, and not the actual e-mail itself). I have also been reading up on how the "Gmail" app's version of Push email is not the same as other Push e-mail software, in that it requires the phone to "Sync" whenever an e-mail hits the Gmail server. As a result, whenever I would try to turn Auto Sync off (supposedly to save battery), I would no longer be able to get my e-mail notifications in real time.
With this in mind, I attempted to find another application that would enable me to use Push email for my Gmail account, without having to "Sync" with Gmail's server. After messing around for a bit, I found that I could manually input my Gmail account info (Incoming Server, Outgoing Server, Username, Pass, Etc.) into the stock "Email" app that comes with the X. Once this was done, I was able to enable "Data Push" in the "Email" app's Settings menu (as well turning off any Polling intervals). By doing this, I was able to receive new Gmail notifications through the "E-mail" app, even when Auto Sync had been turned off. As a bonus, I received them around 15 seconds faster than I did with the "Gmail" app's version of Push.....
I am loving swype, especially since I only have one arm (the others in a cast). Is anyone else having issues with the word list not popping up when you double click on a word? This has never worked for me. I have the newest version.

Adding an image on EditText works fine. However, copying an image is another problem. When I insert an image on EditText by using ImageSpan it shows correctly, but I copy inserted image, EditText shows me only 'obj'.
I want an EditText to look like TextView but still behave like EditText. I've tried applying TextView style to my EditText in my layout.xml file, like this:
But I get an error within xml editor: "Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'style' with value '@android:style/ Widget_TextView')." It is strange because @android:style/ Widget_TextView definitively exists - I double checked it in code via android.R.style.Widget_TextView. Another strange thing is that I don't get android:style offered in the xml editor while typing? There is android:id, android:text and everything else.. but not android:style?
I consider the hard way (making EditText look like TextView) to be: extending EditText and overriding it's onDraw method.
I am not allowed to post more than one hyperlink. But Amazon carries this book as well. I am picking these two books because of another popular thread saying I should have an Android book and a java reference but no one mentioned a book for either. I figured I'd go with the highest rated in for each of those criteria.I didn't know if I could ask a question in the same thread about what books so I figured it was better to start a new one. Code...
I am a newbie in android world so i am ready to spend some time watching android tutorial videos and reading some books. I am ready to spend some amount on android paid tutorials also if they are worth a look. Please suggest me some study material along with some android paid tutorials, i want the best tutorial since i have many apps in mind to develop :) I have had a look at all the free tutorials and i know how to do some simple stuff like calling an intent, making the layout file, media controller. But i dont have knowledge about the major issues like database connectivity, flinge, adapters, geolocation and stuff. Hence the bottom line.
Our app (WordPress for Android) uses a ScrollView for the new blog post view. The issue is that if a user writes a lengthy blog post in the EditText, they are unable to scroll inside of the EditText because the ScrollView seems to be taking over the scrolling action, even when you are in the EditText.
Here's the layout XML (the EditText in question is @id/content):
Before publishing a new app on the market, on which devices would you suggest to check whether it runs fine or not? What are your experiences? How do you handle this?Are there some empirical values, for example, do applications that run smoothly on a HTC Desire behave similar on all HTC devices? Are there some devices on which the app should definately be checked?I like to picture myself releasing a high quality product instead of throwing some crap on the market. :) But I suppose I am not the only one who cannot buy like 5 or more devices just to ensure that the apps works fine on every kind of device.
