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?

HTC EVO 4G :: Spell Check And Suggested Words

Oct 22, 2010

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?

Android : Need App To Change Fonts Size / Spell Check

Dec 26, 2009

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.

HTC Droid Eris :: Spell Check Auto Corection Features

Feb 11, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Spell Checker Keeps Moving / Fix It?

But now it moves around the screen frantically (it moves up and down). This has never happened before and it seems to be a glitch... Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, is there a fix?

Android :: How To Disable Autocomplete On AutoCompleteTextView

Dec 5, 2009

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.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Keyboard Autocomplete Is Screwy

Oct 8, 2010

This is a new issue, not sure what is going on.When I type a message the autocomplete/suggestion from the keyboard is changing words for me that are RIGHT.It usually fixed things that may be spelled wrong pretty accurately, but now it is making changes to good words.For example, i sent my friend a message "ARE YOU GOING TO THE GAME."It kept changing the TO to YOU for no reason."ARE YOU GOING TO YOU GAME." Also, it has stopped suggesting words when I am almost done typing, just shows the current word on the screen instead.I am using Smart Keyboard Pro.

Android :: Should Cursors Used In Autocomplete Adapters Be Managed Or Not?

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").

Android :: Autocomplete List From SQLite With Criteria

Jul 3, 2010

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?

Android :: Search Suggestions / Autocomplete OnClick Behavior

Mar 17, 2010

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

HTC Droid Eris :: Prediction Vs Spell Correction

Dec 1, 2009

what exactly does the Spell Correction feature do? I realized today that I had it disabled all this time. I tried typing with Spell Correction enabled but haven't noticed any difference. The user manual explains the settings like this:

Prediction Select to enable the word prediction feature which provides a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters of nearby keys.

Spell correction Select to correct typographical errors by selecting from a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters
of nearby keys. ...but the keyboard seems to me to function exactly the same with or without spell correction enabled.

HTC Hero :: Enabling GPS Satellites - To Check Or Not To Check

Nov 6, 2009

Menu - Settings - Location - Enable GPS satellites

It states that enabling this will "require more battery plus view of sky"

When checked, it states "deselect to conserve battery"

So, the question is, should this be enabled?

I imagine for some applications, knowing your precise location should be useful, especially if the turn-by-turn maps are installed and used.

I'm thinking to deselect this, and selecting it at times when I need it.

So, to check or not to check?

Android :: Sorting Results When Autocomplete Matches Multiple Columns In SQL

Oct 27, 2009

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?

Android :: Super Fast Autocomplete Using Binary Search In Sorted File

Sep 15, 2010

In my Android app I want to have an input field with autocomplete. The number of items will be about 300000. The best solution seems to be to put the items into a file (on sdcard), one item per line, each line would have the same number of characters so that I can seek to specific line number. If the user enters something in the text field, I would binary search (via RandomAccessFile) the file and show suggestions.I want the autocomplete to be super fast (ideally under 100ms but I guess it's impossible), what optimizations I can do?

Update 1:
I will convert the users input to lowercase english characters (a-z) with spaces. So 'A/b' would be converted to 'a b' and then searched.

Uodate 2:
I now realized I need additional thing - to search for word-starting substrings.
