I am trying to launch an activity by specifying only its action(custom) defined in its intent filter from an activity in other application. The activity to be launched is the main activity of its application thus have android.intent.action.MAIN & android.intent.category.LAUNCHER set as action and category in its intent filter. Now according to android doc on Intent and Intent Filter, i do not need to specify DEFAULT category at all in this case. But doing the same i am i am unable to launch the activity.
LogCat says, Activity could not be found...
Am i misinterpreting the text or is there something else missing...?
Code, used for calling the activity
Definition of Activity being called in the manifest file
Where is the right place to specify general user-defined properties, like a host address or a service mail address ? The properties should be accessible from my activities.
I would like to specify such attributes within the AndroidManifest.xml, but there seems to be no elements available for user-defined properties. So the only way may be to put such properties into a resource file as strings or to hide them into the source code...
I am working on an application where I am saving the state of an application in an ArrayList. Now, to save this state, I tried to use Serialization. But, somewhere in the user defined object, I am using Button, which is not letting me serialize the entire object. I wanted to know, is there any other way of saving this array list between onPause and onResume? I even tried onSaveInstanceState, but it doesn't have support for Array List.
I have a service that is running within the context of my application. It gets invoked at the start of the activity and then gets update when new data is inserted or deleted from the database. The problem is that everytime I start the activity , it restarts the service. As you may have guessed - not a very intuitive design. Therefore I was wondering if there is a way to determine if the service is already running before starting it. I know I can bind to the service but I do not want that since the main activity needs to exits after the database operation is completed. I know for system services, you can get the service details from the application context. How do you do it for user defined service?
In emulator, the items of GridView(e.g. Launcher) are in alphabetical order. Would you please point me how to implement a user-defined order in Launcher? For example, I'd like 'Browser' to be the first item in Launcher...
Have been a long time user of Outlook and Blackberry and store a lot of information in the User Defined Fields. Those fields seem to have been eliminated from all of the Android Contact Apps. I don't see them in Motorola Corporate Sync, Touch Down or Moxier Mail. Am I missing something, can't believe the developers of Android apps would just skip those fields. Any App that I can store and sync those fields. Google Contacts has the fields. I have just upgraded from a Blackberry Bold to a Verizon Droid Maxx. Love the big screen on the phone, struggling with the touch keyboard and really struggling with losing half of my contact information.
I couldnt figure out the exact understanding of implicit intents.
When i was going through the tutorial i read about it.
Here are some important points to remember: 1 - Implicit Intents do not specify a target component 2 - Components willing to receive implicit intents have to declare their ability to handle a specific intent by declaring intent filters 3 - A component can declare any number of Intent Filters 4 - There can be more than one component that declares the same Intent Filters and hence can respond to the same implicit intent. In that case the user is presented both the component options and he can choose which one he wants to continue with 5- You can set priorities for the intent filters to ensure the order of responses.
I read this about Implicit Intents.
I couldnt get visualisation of 4th point. So wanted to try it out by writing some examples.
I tested this like below. Wrote two apps.
I had written two activities in one app, CallingActivity & anotherActivity.
One more app,which has two activities like below.
I ran the first app in emulator and pressed home screen, it mean it runs in the background.(Not exited ) Then i opened the second app and clicked a button in frirst activity(testmain) and tried to call setAction "com.android.localguide.GET_RESULT"
But it is opening the activity "results".. It dint showed a options to choose which components( i expected first app ) activity i need to use ?
Am i right in executing in the right context to understand that point no 4 ?
I was trying to open an Activity of an other applicatoin by using an implicit Intent. It doesn't work, I thought it is possible to start an Activity of an other Application by using implicit Intent. Or do I missunderstand it?
I added following intent-filter to the AndroidManifest of Application A:
And called the Intent in Application B by using folloing code:
All I get ist, the error message that Application A was stoped unexpectedly.
I have a ListView that I want to populate with objects whose layout is defined via XML. Is there a way to instantiate a layout at runtime, editing stuff like the Android layout ID, etc., and then load the new layout into the list?
I got one question regarding the intent action "ACTION_CALL". What is the correct way of getting back to the own application/activity after the user ends the call? The only way that came to my mind uses a PhoneStateListener in a background services that waits for the CALL_STATE_IDLE event starting up the application again. But I am not quite sure if that is the correct/intended way of using the intent.
But the text in the TextView turned out to be a black color. When I use @color/my_white in layout xml files, it works fine. I check the generate R.java, and see: public static final int my_white=0x7f070025;
I have to dynamically add a list of views (the views use RelativeLayout). Can I do this by specifying the view definition in xml and instantiate multiple objects off it? This gives the usual benefits of separating the view part from the code (for e.g., making it easy for the UI guys to alter things) or Is going the ArrayAdapter the suggested/only route?
I'm developing an Android application that I'd like to be compatible with 1.5 (SDK version 4).
I'm testing the application on 2.2 (SDK version 8).
To do this, I'm including in the manifest file the line <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="8" />
I thought this would allow me to use the newest manifest elements and APIs, but I'm getting a compile error whenever I try to use them. For example, I try to define the element installLocation to allow the app to be installed on the SD card, but Eclipse gives me the error
No resource identifier found for attribute 'installLocation' in package 'android'
Is there something else I have to do to get this to work? If I can't get this to work, what benefit is defining targetSdkVersion?
I'm currently developing a simple 2D game for Android. I have a stationary object that's situated in the center of the screen and I'm trying to get that object to rotate and point to the area on the screen that the user touches. I have the constant coordinates that represent the center of the screen and I can get the coordinates of the point that the user taps on. I'm using the formula outlined in this forum: How to get angle between two points?
-It says as follows "If you want the the angle between the line defined by these two points and the horizontal axis: double angle = atan2(y2 - y1, x2 - x1) * 180 / PI;". -I implemented this, but I think the fact the I'm working in screen coordinates is causing a miscalculation, since the Y-coordinate is reversed. I'm not sure if this is the right way to go about it, any other thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
