Android :: Preference Change Notifying Main Activity

Nov 13, 2009

I think I've missed something in how Android is supposed to work! I have the main Activity with a menu option that opens the preferences screen. What I need is a way for any changes that were made to be communicated back to the main Activity as soon as the preference is activated. At the moment the only way I could get it working is by using the intent data that gets sent back when the prefs activity closes but this isn't really enough. The reason why it needs to be instantaneous is that one of the preferences is a 'Clear cache' button, so I would like the data to be deleted when the user requests it and no later!

Android :: Dialog Activity To Return Before Continuing Executing Of Main Thread

May 22, 2010

How would I force the current thread to wait until another has finished before continuing. In my program the user selects a MODE from an AlertDialog, I want to halt executing of the program before continuing as the mode holds important configuration for the gameplay.

new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
.setItems(R.array.game_modes, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
switch (which) {
case 0:
setMode(TRAINING_MODE);
case 1:
setMode(QUIZ_MODE);
default:
setMode(TRAINING_MODE);
break; ............
//continue loading the rest of onCreate();
contineOnCreate(); } })
.create().show();

If this is impossible can anyone give a possible solution?

Android :: White Screen Appears In Main Activity?

Feb 15, 2010

public class Profile extends Activity{
WebView prof_webv;
private String selected_username;
private static final String INDEX = "http://14.143.227.140";

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);
setContentView(R.layout.main);
prof_webv = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.mainwebview);
prof_webv.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
prof_webv.getSettings().setSupportZoom(false);
prof_webv.loadUrl(INDEX);}

@Override
public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
if ((keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK) ) {
finish();
return true;
}
return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);
}
}

This is my new Activity for a WebView. When the user clicks back, I simply want to close this Activity and return to my previous one. Notice, I put "onKeyDown" -> Finish. However, it's not working. Instead, I click "back", a blank white screen comes up.. (it doesn't even hit that onKeyDown Statement when I try to debug it)! When I hit "back" the second time, then it will go back to my previous Activity.

Android :: How To Launch An Activity From A Widget And Return To Home Screen

Sep 14, 2010

I have a widget that when clicked opens an activity from same app as the widget. When the activity is closed/dismissed via a button, the user will see the full app window IF the app was previously open/in memory. Is there a way for the activity to finish and return to the home screen and not to an existing instance of the app?

Intent i = new Intent(this,RateIt.class);
i.putExtra("com.sporadicsoftware.NetQ.movie_id",aMovie.title_id);
i.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_WHEN_TASK_RESET|Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_HISTORY|Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context,
0, i, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT);
updateViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(R.id.movie_one_title, pendingIntent);

Android :: Start An Activity And Return Back To Original Activity

Jan 26, 2009

I have an application with contains multiple activities. The main activity will start the others ( use startActivity() ) depends on user event, when an activity close, it calls finish() and return back to main activity. It appears to behavior like that.

However, the "problem" I see is main activity's onCreate function is called every time. I think the the main activity should be placed in the activity stack and simply push to front when others exit, therefore only onResume,  onStart are called. Is there some flag I need to set or I misunderstand the activity behaviro?

In child activity, besides calling finish() or startActivity for main activity, what is other way to move main activity to front?

Im writing a program that offers a quick reply dialog upon receipt of an SMS.

However, I am getting an unexpected result. When I receieve an SMS, the appropriate dialog activity comes up displaying the correct phone number and message, however there is a second activity behind it that is the 'default' activity in my program (it is what opens when i launch my application)

Android :: Passing Arguments From Loading Activity To Main Activity

May 16, 2010

I'm writing an application that starts with a loading activity. In the loading activity the app requests html from web and parses the html, then it sends the parsing result to the main activity. The main activity has several tabs, and contents of these tabs are based on the result of parsing.For example, the result of parsing is a list of strings ["apple", "banana", "orange"], and I need to pass this list to main activity, so that the main activity can create three tabs named after three fruits.I would like to know if there is any way to pass a list of strings among activities, BTW, is it the common way of do this?

Android :: Start Activity When Main Activity Is Running In Background

Jan 10, 2010

I created an application which enables the user to set whether he wants to receive notification while the application runs in background mode. If the notifications are enabled an activity should be started (the dialog should appear on the screen).

I tried to enabled it the following way:

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

This is the method from main activity. When onPause() is executed isRunningInBackground is set true.
When I tried to debug it when the main application was running in the background the line

startActivity(intent) had no effect (the activity didn't appear).

Does anyone know how to midify the logic in order to start an activity from the main activity when the main activity is running in the background (after onPause() is called)?

Android :: Starting Second Activity From Main Activity On Button Click

Need an example of how to create/start a new activity from the main activity. I have a button click event on the main layout. Originally I just used setContentView(R.layout.secondactivity); which brings up the layout but I don't think that is correct since the secondactivity class is not instantiated at this point yet. I have looked for such an example and can not find one.

Android :: App Widget Configure Activity Opens Main Activity

Jan 10, 2010

I hav an app that is like a relational database. There is a main app activity that users manage things with. There is also a widget that will display important info and add data to the database. When the widget is clicked, a configure class displays a way for the user to edit data. When the configure activity is done, the widget is updated and instead of going back to the home screen, the apps main activity is started. I can't find where the main activity is being called from. Wouldn't I have to create an intent and start Activity() to get this behavior? When done updating, I want the home screen and not my app.

Android :: Mangled Preference Activity

Sep 24, 2009

I have pretty unassuming preferences screen based on Preference Activity. (You can see it in DroidIn app) I'm having some problems with it that I think have to do with redrawing the screen after updates. Here are the symptoms: 1. OnPreferenceChangeListener#onPreferenceChange if I change summary of the preference by doing Preference#setSummary the new value is painted over the old one creating unsightly effect 2. My preferences screen is large enough that user has to scroll. While scrolling, the whole screen get all messed up, again it looks like view is redrawn (when scrolled) without erasing the background first.

Android :: Leaked Window In Preference Activity

Jan 30, 2009

I've created a set of preference screens building on the tuts on androidguys. My preference XML contains nested PreferenceScreens. The below doesn't occur in the root screen, only once clicking to a child PreferenceScreen. Once in that PreferenceScreen, even before selecting an EditPreference, if I change orientation (i.e. flick the G1 keyboard out) I get an error: 01-30 09:33:54.080: ERROR/WindowManager(1261): android.view.WindowLeaked: that was originally added here.I have previously overcome this in other activities by utilising the onPause etc methods with custom dialogs I use. How can I prevent this in the PreferenceActivity? What am I missing?

Android :: Preference Activity And Theme Not Applying

Apr 11, 2010

I have a problem in the Preferences Activity, in the main preferences the theme shows ok, but if I get to a sub preference, the theme gets messy, it is not white as it should, it is all dark, and the font is black so you can't see much, and when I start clicking on any items they will get sometimes white as they should but revert to black soon after. This is only happens on 2.1, in both the real device and emulator. Tested on the emulator running 1.6 and it was working correctly.

Android :: Save Configuration Value As Integer In Preference Activity?

Sep 16, 2010

Is there a way how I can tell the Preference Activity that value should be saved as integer? So far my all values are saved as strings... I can limit input to integers via XML easy:

<EditTextPreference android:key="SomeKey" android:numeric="integer" />

but it is still saved as string and later trying to getInt("SomeKey") on preferences object I always get java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String.

Is there a way that EditTextPreference value would be saved not as string? Or maybe I should use some other type of Preference for numeric input?

Android :: Getting An Asset Outside Of Main Activity

Nov 30, 2009

From digging around a bit, getAssets() is an inherited method from ContextWrapper. It returns an AssetManager, and using open() it can return an InputStream. What I'm attempting to do at this point, is use the GLSurfuceViewActivity, Cube and CubeRenderer to work and learn off of and read in vertex data from a binary file. I've already created the binary output by parsing a model obj file and added to the assets directory. My Shape class (modified from the Cube class) does not have access to calling getAssets() since it's not a subclass of Activity or ContextWrapper. Once I accepted that, I tried to think of the best way to read in the data (without storing it extra places) to the Shape class. What I did, and seems to be working okay, was modify the Shape and ShapeRenderer constructors to accept an AssetManger as a parameter.

Android :: Application Without Main Activity?

Oct 5, 2010

Is there a way to manage application activities by hand, like this: user activating an application from menu, it does some initialization, then creates some activity (is it necessar y to declare all activities in the application manifest?), and listens to it's events. On some event application decides to close one activity and open another - so it contains all the application logic. Didn't found anything like this in examples, they all have all the logic in the activity classes. Maybe I need to user Services? (Maybe I don't understand right, what an activity represents. For me it's like window in windows, or Displayable in j2me) I'm very new to android development, trying to understand the basics.

Android :: Service Bound To Main Activity

Nov 11, 2010

so the application I've written has a service (that tracks GPS data) with a single main activity that binds to it with bindService in it's onStart() method, and unbinds from the service in it's onStop() method using unbindService( ServiceConnection ). I also have an activity which is an options screen, that is launched by pressing a button on the main activity. On this options screen, I have a checkbox that says "Run in background", which, if set to true, means that when the user exits the application with eier the Home or Back buttons, the service will continue running, not turning the GPS off. I do this by calling this.startForeground onUnbind, and this.stopForeground onRebind, if the setting is set to true, and stopping and starting my location reader onUnbind and onRebind respectively if the setting is false. If the service is running in the background, it also displays a notification to ensure the user understands that the GPS is still running and draining their power. This notification is displayed and stopped by relying on the startForeground and stopForeground methods......

Android : Can App's Main Activity Be Bypassed On Launch?

May 9, 2010

Are there any scenarios on Android where a process can be instantiated (classes loaded, etc.) and a non-main activity launched without going through the main activity? Background: my app has a single main activity (android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" and android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"), some secondary activities, and a preferences class providing static methods meant to be called from anywhere.  These static methods' implementations require a Context, and so the class has a static Context member s_context; the static methods assert that s_context is non-null before using it.  The very first thing I do in my main activity's onCreate() method is pass getApplicationContext() into the preferences class so it can set s_context.
