Android :: How To Trun Off Spell Check /autocomplete?
Feb 20, 2010
I just got my first Android phone (N1), and like it so far.There are a few things that drive me up the wall, though.One of them is the 'autocomplete' (not sure what it's called): where Android suggests words as you type a text message. Great when I'm typing English, not so great when using other languages.Can this be turned off?
This is my first post. I've had a Moto Droid since day one, and I just love it. It is without a doubt better than any phone that I've had over the years, and that includes the iPhone, BB, etc. However, there are 2 things that I don't understand - Font size and a spell checker. It is impossible to read the small font size in emails or text messages. 1. Why has there not been an app to either change the font size or be able to zoom in? Picasy has incorporated multi-touch for zooming, so I've to assume that its doable! Why not have the same in an email client. 2. Why is there not an email client out there that allows for spell checking? There are many such apps for the BB! I am a terrible speller. I am not complaining, I just want to understand the limitations from a developers prospective, as I am sure these issues will eventually be addressed.
In other words when I'm creating the text for this post is there something that will spell check as I type and underline or highlight any mispelled words and suggest replacements or allow me to add to dictionary?
I'm a new Evo user. I loved the auto correct options on my BB. I like the auto correct of the evo, however the suggested words that pop up really distract me and slow me down. When I shut this option off, though, I can't seem to find any way to spell check or auto correct any words in texts, etc. Is there a way to keep the auto correct feature, but hide all the suggestions?
I've got a GNex, which of course comes with ICS. It seems to have a spell check built in, but I prefer to use the spell check that comes with Swype. Is there a way to turn off the native spell check so that it doesn't get in the way of Swype's suggested words?
I cant find a gmail spell check anywhere. Are they out there? does anyone have recommendations? If it also had web/txt spell checking that would be ideal also but my main concern is email spell checking.
Quick question.. is there a way to enable spell check, but disable the who correct?? the auto correct is extremely annoying when it changes words on you. how ever id like it to tell me if i miss spelled a word..
like i tried to write DL (down load) and it auto changed it to florida.. or i went to type Mo Williams, and auto changed to Month Williams.
i came from a storm and the storm would underline miss spelled words but not auto correct it.
i played around with all the settings.. cant get it to just spell check with out auto correction.. are there any apps?
I often switch between english and french when writing texts and it's annoying to always have to switch between english and french spell check (hold the space button or globe button and select language).
Is there some app or option that allows for the language to get detected and spell check to be changed automatically?
I woke up after a nap this afternoon (you know, after coloring but before recess ) ... and i had received a text and i went to reply and my auto correct didnt know the word 'you' 'eat' and a few others and i am sure there are many more i will find. i do not know how to fix it. i guess i will just have to work through it and add the words it doesnt know.
But also if i type 'lol' then by default 'LOL' will come up if i press space unless i manually go up and select 'lol' in the little word list predict thing <--yes, that is the actual HTC given name , this is also the case for many other words and if i add the word to the dictionary it still might not use it automatically. even if i spell it right and it is in the list it may use another word when i press space.
When using Google Hangouts to text on my Nexus 5, every time I enter a web url the string is spell checked and becomes un-clickable. Example:If I type: "whatismyandrioidversion.com" into a txt/sms chat using hangouts, the string is spell checked and auto corrected to "what is my android version.com".
So, then I have to go through a very annoying process of deleting the spaces between each word and fixing the url before I send the message.
I recently rooted my Galaxy Nexus (LTE) and flashed it to 4.0.4 stock. After I did this nearly everything that I typed would be underlined as incorrectly spelled. It seems to me that there is no dictionary for the spell check to use.
What i did but now my phone makes an annoying type writing sound when i text. I looked though everything and cant find what turns it off. And also the spell check when u type is off too how do i turn that back on?
Is it possible to have an EditTextPreference with AutoComplete attached to it?I know ho to attach one to an element with an id, but am having trouble figure out how to attach the ArrayAdapter to the preference field.This is wrong, but it's as close as I can get.
So this is a response to another thread, that I never got a reaction on. Hopefully someone can give a hand. I have a AutoCompleteTextView with a CursorAdapter with data. I need to be able to set a text in the AutoCompleteTextView programmatically without the autocomplete mechanism kicking in. If I use *setText *on the AutoCompleteTextView it will start the autocomplete. I tried calling *dismissDropDown() after setText, but this dosnt work because the drop down is not shown yet.
Is it possible to get Autocomplete or Something when i work with the eclipse form editor?I write a color in the strings.xml and then i want to select it by the propertys for the text color, but there is no autocomplete or something equal
I'm using an autocomplete box, with suggestions provided by a SimpleQueryAdapter.Not sure if relevant, but only difference I see is that, both in the adapter constructor, as well as in runQuery(), I use a cursor returned by SQLiteDatabase#query obtained via an SQLiteOpenHelper instance.Should I be using on these cursors or not?If I don't use managed cursors, then I get "leak found" warnings ("database was created [sic] but never closed").
I'm having problem with creating AutocompleteTextView in custom dialog. In every example i saw, the autocomplete feature is only in the classes that extends activity.I need to have autocomplete in custom dialog that I created.
Can someone point me to right direction, how to create an adapter for AutoCompleteTextView, which would be getting data from SQLite DB, using data, which user entered into the text field? I want to use the user-entered data to filter suggestions for autocompletion.I imagine that adapter should always take user-entered data as soon as changes appears and use it for fetching suggestions on-the-fly. Is that possible? So far I've seen many tutorials for autocompletion where static String arrays were used, but never seen them build dynamically.Is it possible to do it automatically or I need always fetch String array myself and pass as ArrayList to adapter on every AutoCompleteTextView change?
In my activity, I have an AutoCompleteTextView that gets its contents from my custom adapter. I created my adapter by following this example.The adapter works so far, but I am getting so many errors on leaks and cursors that are not finalized.My question is: how do I close the db in runQueryOnBackgroundThread?
I cannot seem to dictate the behavior of the onClick function.When a suggestion is clicked, it fires off the intent immediately. Is there a way for it to instead of firing off the intent immediately,simply copy and paste the suggestion as part of the search string?Eg. when typing in J,o,h the suggestion "John" comes up. When I click "John" can it copy that text into the search bar instead of immediately processing the search with John?I'm assuming theres a simple configuration which I cant seem to find.I dont want to go extensively into catching the fired of intent and re-processing etc
I am trying to implement a dynamic auto complete widget in android.I am done with the major functionalities and the auto completion implemented is for youtube video search.When I start typing a letter or two, the auto-completion is not working. But when I type three letters or more it works prefect.It also works when I type two letters and hit a backspace.I do not know what is wrong with the code.
I've run into an issue with an autocomplete field I'm working on.The field I'm working with is composed of the form "<NAME> (<CODE>)".When a user starts typing in text, I want to display any results that match either NAME or CODE.For example, if this list contains items and their codes, like "Personal Computer (PC)", then I'd want the list to pop up that row if the user types "P", "PC", "Per", etc.However, the problem I'm running into now is how to best sort the results that come back from this.For example, If someone enters "PC", I want "Personal Computer (PC)" to be the first result. However, if there's another row (you'll have to bear with me as this is contrived) "PC Case (301)", then there's no simple ordering I can do on the results to ensure that the best match appears first. Ordering by name and code both returns PC Case first.I want a query where it returns the best match first, rather than items in alphabetical order.Is there such a function I can use in SQLite to get this, or should I return the results and then mess with the order in the code?
