Android :: Alarm Not Working At All On HTC Until Keypress

Dec 2, 2009

My girlfriend recently got the HTC Tattoo (running Android 1.6) and she's having major issues with the alarm on the Clock application. Whenever she sets the alarm to wake up in the morning, it doesnt go off at the desired time. There's no sound or not waking of the screen. The alarm does finally sound when the screen is woken, and this can be 20 minutes or so after the alarm *should* have sounded! It works ok if the alarm is set to go off in 5 minutes time or so, but it seems like Android forgets to ring the alarm until the screen is woken and then does it.Can anyone provide any insight into this issue? I have seen that there are other threads where the alarm doesn't work but they dont cover this behavior.

Android :: Hide Soft Keyboard On Done Keypress?

Aug 5, 2010

I am struggling with the done button on the soft keyboard. I can't get the soft keyboard Done keypress to hide the keyboard. From another button, it works perfectly with imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0);
but the onKeyListener does not function the way I want. When I hit the editText, the soft keyboard shows up and its content is cleared from characters. The main.xml:

<EditText android:id="@+id/answer"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal" android:textSize="36px"
android:inputType="phone" android:minWidth="60dp" android:maxWidth="60dp" />

The Java file:
private EditText editText;...
editText = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.answer);
editText.setOnClickListener(onKeyboard);
editText.setOnKeyListener(onSoftKeyboardDonePress); ...
// method not working: private View.OnKeyListener onSoftKeyboardDonePress=new View.OnKeyListener() { public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
if (event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.FLAG_EDITOR_ACTION) {
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); }
return false; } };
private View.OnClickListener onKeyboard=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { editText.setText(""); } };

The working method using a button (in the same java file):
private View.OnClickListener onDone=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { ....
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); } };
When I press key no "9" the keyboard hides.

Android :: Emulator Stuck On Equals Phantom Keypress

Jul 27, 2010

For some reason, and only on my Dell Vostro 1000 laptop, the Android emulator keeps thinking I have the = key pressed and continually emits a string of "=====" equal signs. This happens no matter what I'm doing in the emulator. It responds to my manual keypresses as well, interspersing them. It happens no matter which version of the Android system I run (2.1, 2.2, etc.) Strangely, it happens even running the Android emulator via a remote desktop session where the remote desktop client is the laptop and the server is another PC running the emulator. If I run the emulator on the other PC locally (not remote desktop,) the emulator functions fine!

This problem didn't occur when I first installed the SDK and as far as I know no other software has been installed since then. I tried clicking the "clear user data" from the emulator launcher and still no effect. I have also tried deleting the SDK directory and reinstalling it, but the effect is still there.
Update: I found another application that exhibits this behavior. ScummVM when opening a dialog to save the game also receives these phantom keypresses. It persists in Windows 7.

Android :: Overriding Dialog Preference Default Back Keypress

Jul 7, 2010

By default, when in DialogPreference you press back button, it mimics that you've pressed NegativeButton. I'd like to override that but can't find an easy way except to recreate DialogPreference from scratch (which at the moment seems like an overkill), because I'd like that PositiveButton set something, NegativeButton to unset something, and back key to leave things as they were (i.e. to not unset something). I've even tried to override showDialog() but: a) its not simple, b) I don't think I should mess too much with internals of OS supplied code like a bunch of private "m" variables.

Android :: Hiding Keyboard In Override Done Keypress Of Edit Text

Apr 18, 2010

I have used a bit of Android code to override the "Done" button in my EditText field:
myEditField.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() {
@Override public boolean onEditorAction(TextView v, int actionId, KeyEvent event) {
if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE) { mySubroutine();
return true; } return false; } } );

Activating the field calls up the keyboard, and pressing "Done" evaluates mySubroutine() successfully. However, the keyboard no longer goes away when I press "Done". How do I restore this default behavior to the routine?

Android :: Android - Light Weight Solution To Detect Keypress

In Android I am writing an application in which, I would like to capture an event if in case user doesn't do any activity (tapping/key press). For better context - It is like session timeout.

Basic solution - I can override the key press/tapping event and put one timer which continuously run either as thread or service. In my opinion this is bit heavier solution in terms of resource.

Android :: Update UI From An Event With Thread

Mar 26, 2010

Im working on a small application to try out an idea that I have. The idea is to periodically update the UI when event of some sort occurs. In the demo I've created, I'm updating a ProgressDialog every 2 seconds for 15 turns. The problem I am having, which I don't quite understand is that when an event is handled, I send a message to the handler which is supposed to update the message in the ProgressDialog. When this happens however, I get an exception which states that I can't update the UI from that thread.Am I missing something? The logic makes sense to me and it looks like everything should work, I'm using a handler to update the UI like it is recommended.

Android :: Calendar With Datepicker For Add Event

May 27, 2010

After buying my lovely HTC Desire two weeks ago I'm now trying to start using my phone as an organizer/agenda.

Unfortunatly I really have sucky memory (hence I need to use the agenda from my phone) and thus I actually have NO idea what date it is today and everytime I goto the add event dialog I forget to look at the calendar what day it curently is (let alone tomorrow!).

Since the default app only has those anoying slider/slotbars to pick the date for an event... I keep placing events on the wrong date! :@

I've been trying to find a replacement app but the only two I've found so far (Jorte and Gemini) have the same anoying dialog to add an event!

All the other 'apps' I find when looking for android calendar apps are widget-only!!

Anyone knows a way to get a datepicker or something like that into the calendar app or a different app?

Maybe at least display the name of the day when creating a new event?

Android :: Composing A New Calendar Event

Dec 24, 2009

My app wants to whisk the user to the "create new event" composition window of his Calendar app, initializing begin time, end time, title and description text for the event, but then leaving him able to see these values and optionally alter them before saving (or discarding) the event using the oridinary means available to him from within the Calendar's create new event activity.

HOWEVER...

My code which works dandy on my own dev phone (indeed, on any phone running stock Android Calendar to the bone) fails on the HTC Hero. The issue is that the Hero has been "improved" by use of a non- standard Calendar app and my means of doing this is therefore failing.

I wonder if someone can outline a more generic means I can use to say "tell whatever the user's preferred Calendar app is to create a new event, seeding the effort with these key/value pairs".

Here is my present code:

Android :: How To Manage Event By 2 Widgets?

Jul 10, 2010

I want to change how a gallery looks like. I want to add 2 jogs at each side, so looks like this:
http://omploader.org/vNHc2Yw/device.png

First approach was to add the "jogs" to the ImageAdapter (at the beginning and at the end) for the Gallery. The Gallery will show the items as usual, but It will apply the custom background and also if you specify spacing, you will get an ugly gallery. Also, I want the jog not to be centered as the others images. Then, I decided to download the whole api and modify the Gallery source in a way so to handle specially the first item and the last item of the adapter. But, I don't know how to compile the api alone. The Makefile in the root project will build 6gb of the whole android platform. If someone can explain me how to build just the API, I will be grateful.

The other approach was to compose Views. I thought to add ImageView's to the left and right corner and to be scrolled when needed, but when the Gallery capture the events I can't forward it to the holder of the ImageViews. So, I extend Gallery, and I override onScroll() like this:
super.onScroll(e1,e2,distanceX,distanceY); return false;
and also onTouchEvent() like this:
super.onTouchEvent(event); return false;
But unfortunately when I return false wihtin onTouchEvent() the Gallery does not scroll.

So, main questions are:
1) How can I compile the modified API to generete a MyGallery.class to be added to android.jar? If I modify the source code of Gallery.java I can manage the fill of the Gallery for the specific items I want (I already read the source code).
2) In other approach, Is it possible to handle one event by 2 widgets? If so, I could overlap the Gallery above a jog. The Gallery will scroll as he knows, and I will scroll as I want.
3) If those approachs are bad, what will you recommend ?

I don't get why the Gallery does not have this nice feature I want to implement, kind of: setBorders(left, right) and etc. The problem on extending Gallery, is that when you add a View (for instance, the "jog"), you specify a position. Gallery fills the gallery getting the Views of it container with: getChildAt(0) and getChildAt(numChildren -1) when filling to right and left, respectively. Then, it gathers the 'unseen' Views from the Adapter. So the added view (the 'jog') will be scrolled by Gallery, but when the view is no longer visible, the Gallery itself has no way to get back that view, as it's not in the Adapter.
