Well, I'm trying to follow the tutorial from http://rapidandroid.org/wiki/Graphing. But I found a problem just in the first part of it. I'll describe the problem here, I just cannot understand how this could be wrong, it's pretty simple stuff. What am I doing wrong here? First I created a xml file called statistics.xml, in it among other things I put this code... The problem arises here, as I seem to be getting null for wv whenever I test for it. Which means of course that findViewById(R.id.webview) couldn't find the view. But again, what am I doing wrong? Of course I know I could also instantiate the webview directly from code without the need to specify it from the xml, but I was just wondering what was wrong about this way of doing it. Just in case I also added the following line in my android manifest file.
I have an instance of Bitmap that I want to load into the WebView. How can I do this? I do not want to call webview.loadUrl() as the image is already loaded from the file into memory . I am trying to optimize my code. I can see webview.loadData() however, seems like I have to encode Bitmap into UTF-8?? I have two questions: 1) How can I use webview.loadData() from a Bitmap instance?
Is there any way I can load a URL without actually having the user see the web page? I'm trying to make a game with a hi score table, and loading the hi score URL in the browser would reveal the mechanism and allow the hi scores to be easily hacked. I have a php file on my server that my application is supposed to load to submit the hi score.
What i want is when first time application runs then it should show only image in the full screen and one progress bar. And in the background there should be a url like http://www.google.com should be loaded in WebView. Once the url loads fully then my first screen which contains progress bar and image should move away and new screen with loaded url comes up. Is it possible to load the url in the webview as a background and once loaded then only webview should appear.
In my app I have to load external page into WebView-based activity. Some of my users with slower connections are reporting screen timeout while waiting for the page to load. What would be a good way of loading the page on backgorund thread and then refreshing the screen? Use HttpClient to fetch it and then use WebView#loadData? My fear is - the page I'm loading is pretty complicated there's some JS that happens on load - wouldn't I just mess it up? Is there an alternative way of doing what I need?
I'm trying to load https requests with a Webkit object but It shows only a blank page, with http requests I don't have problems, It shows the page correctly. I have look the source code of the browser, in http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/packages/apps/Browser.git;a... but I don't understand how the browser process the https requests. I think that the class BrowserActivity process the http and https requests but I don't see how to do it. Somebody could explain how the browser process the https request? It uses a Webview object to show the response of the https requests?
I need to load several url to a webview in animated transition. i used 2 webviews; prev_view and next_view. if we click on next button, next_view will appear with right to left animation covering the prev_view underneath. on back press. next_view will move left to right showing the prev_view. as i have 100 urls(local html files) to load on webview, each time i need to load new url while animation but it does animate the old one and after animation end shows the new url. is it possible to disable the cache and load new url while animation?
Is there any inbuilt function to load PDF file from Local Asset in Browser or Webview. Tried using loading file to Buffer .. But the content was not displayed. Dnt suggest me to install Application like DocumentToGo or any like that.
I have a web page that uses a custom font, using this CSS piece of code: If I load the page in the browser in Android 1.1, 1.5 or 1.6, this technique works fine, the font is downloaded and used. But these were the good times. Now this is all gone. With 2.0 my declaration is ignored, the default font is used, and I'm sad! This is in the Browser app, and in my app that uses a WebView.
I have a WebView on my Android application which loads (WebView.loadUrl()) different local HTML files from phone's internal storage. I would like to include some custom css styles for them, Now, I could have my app edit every HTML file and add linking reference for the CSS file.I could also read the file contents, add the CSS linking and use WebView.loadData() to load it.But is it possible to do this a lot simpler and efficiently.Note: The HTML files are downloaded from a website. So editing them manually is not possible in this case, but once downloaded they can be edited via the app if necessary.
these is how to give a string as argument String link ="http://www.adobe.com /devnet/acrobat/pdfs /pdf_open_ parameters.pdf"; webview.loadUrl(link);But how to give an "URL" variable to load its content to webview.
I have been assigned the task to use an android tablet to run a single app in an enterprise setting. Ideally, when one switches on the tablet this app should be loaded perhaps during startup and the user need not step out of this app. The app logic itself is rather easy but I am wondering if it is at all possible to load a single app during load and not allowing the user to step out of it.
Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?
In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.
What should be the best design you would recommend?
I write some JNI files for my application, and it works smoothly at Android 1.5, and Android 1.6. However, my application not work on Android 2.0 emulator, because my SO file can't be loaded, no matter I put it to data/data/<my package>/ lib, or /system/lib Why I got those message at Android 2.0 emulator? How to fix this issue?
This is a silly question... but after following the instructions and running my application, I can't get it to run again. I hit run, the emulator opens up, and nothing happens at startup. When I attempt to launch the app from the applications menu, I get the old version of the app. Breakpoints etc. don't seem to do anything. Tried creating a new project altogether with different names for the activity, etc. and running that, still nothing.
I'm developing an Android app for which we will be selling separate content in the Android Market. Since Android lacks an in-app purchasing model as iOS has, I have come to understand that this is the ideal way of selling additional content (but NOT functionality) for Android apps.
So the question is, how do I actually load raw resources from other Android apps, assuming that I know the exact name of the resource, app ID, etc.?
