Android :: Keyboard Input - Touch Event Noisy

Jul 21, 2010

I'm working on a simple game: when you press a button on the screen, a character will run to certain direction. It's easy to support keyboard input. But, some phone doesn't go with a keyboard or even no a track ball. So I decided to draw a virtual "run" key on the screen (with opengl). When the user press the virtual key, I apply a velocity to the character. And when the user release the key, I disable the velocity to stop the character but there seems to be some touch event noisy. If my finger cannot press still, I will see millions of touch down and touch up events, instead of a single long pressing.

And occasionally, my program captured the touch down event when I touch the screen, but didn't capture touch up event. So my character will keep moving, even no finger is on the screen. I'm wondering if there is some way to reduce the touch event noisy and tell if the user is currently pressing on the screen, instead of only getting an event when touch up and down happen. It seems the system UI can detect long pressing, for example when you put a finger on one item of the list view widget, the entire item turns to orange. I just don't know how to detect pressing in my opengl game.

Samsung Moment :: HTC Touch Input Keyboard

Dec 11, 2009

this keyboard is light years ahead of the default virtual qwerty.I bought the Moment for the hard qwerty and absolutely love it, but hated to have to open the phone for each and every little thing due to the god-awful virtual keyboard.Installing HTC's Touch Input was the best decision I've made. It's super responsive and typing is almost as easy as with the iPhone. I use the T9 numeric as opposed to the full qwerty. There's also a compact qwerty if that's your thing (Blackberry-esque)It's not on the Market AFAIK, but a quick google search will show you where it is. Even has a calibration tool!

HTC Desire :: Missing Touch Input Settings

Jul 17, 2010

I just purchased this awesome phone a few days ago, and while searching the forums on how to disable the word prediction, alot of people suggest to go to the Touch Input settings in the phone, but whenever I go to Settings -> Language & Keyboard, the only choice I have is to Select Locale, which in turn gives me a list of the locale, so I choose the Locale then it just returns me to the Language & Keyboard settings screen which only has the Select locale option. So I can't find the Touch input settings to try and disable the word prediction.

HTC EVO 4G :: Touch Input Freezes / Works Incorrectly

Nov 4, 2010

To start: I searched the forums for this problem but didn't see anything similar. If this is a repost, sorry, please give me a link to a solution.The problem seems to go away when I shut off the screen and then turn it back on again. However, I sometimes have to do this three times in order to type a single sentence text. I did a hard reset earlier today and it was fine for a few hours. It seemed to come back after I installed some of the apps I had before it was reset. I've read that there was an issue with the earlier Evos about the screen not being grounded, but this seems more of a software issue to me. Anyone know what I can do?

Android : Get Co-ordinates Of A Touch Event On Droid?

May 30, 2010

I'm new to Android, I've followed the hello world tutorial through and have a basic idea of what's going on. I'm particularly interested in the touch screen of my T-Mobile Pulse so just to get me started I want to be able to write the co-ordinates of a tocuh event on the screen, so say the user touched the co-ordinate 5,2 - a textview on the screen would display that.

At present I have a simple program that just loads an xml file which contains the textview I intend to write the co-ordinates in.

Thank you in advance, I did Google for help and searched stackoverflow but everything I found either went way over my head or wasn't suitable for this.

Android :: Draw Transparent Lines On Bitmap Via Touch Input

Jul 23, 2010

I am working on a paint application for Android. Now I want to implement an eraser to allow erasing parts of a loaded bitmap by using touch input and making the bitmap transparent along the finger's path.

A very good example of what I try to achieve is shown in the application Steamy Window for Android. Steamy Window simulates a fogged window, where a user can wipe parts of the fog via touch input.

UPDATE: I have posted the most important sections of my current code below. I am not really happy with it for the following reasons:

Drawing is quite sluggish. What can I improve here?
I am looking for a way to use an alpha mask in order to set the pixel transparency/alpha of the pixels as I want to simulate a paint brush. Any suggestions how this could be achieved?

Android :: How To Make Listview With Selectable Children Stop Scrolling On Touch Event

Oct 20, 2009

As a work around to the issue where a list item isn't focusable if it has a focusable child item (a comment by Romain Guy was that this was intended behavior, for accessibility reasons) I simply filled the listItem with two children, each of which is focusable - There's nowhere to directly touch on the listItem anymore, just it's children.

For the most part this is a useable workaround, effectively invisible to the user, except for one thing- Although you can scroll by swiping without issue, touching to *stop* the scroll no longer works- I imagine because the child item is capturing the touch event and not passing it to the parent listitem, at least while the scroll is in effect.

Is there a known workaround for this? Perhaps someway to "pass the baton" of the touch event back up to the parent listItem, or a way to change my design?

BTW- I know there's some built-in functonality for single/multiple choice listviews (checkbox listviews) - That doesn't actually help in my case. The app is a contact list, and the row children are a relativelayout (populated with contact info) and a clickable phone icon (a one-touch dial for the contact), which needs to be visible or invisible depending on whether the stored contact has a phone number.

HTC Wildfire :: Keyboard Input And Language

I live in Belgium, the Dutch part, and we use AZERTY keyboards here. My phone is in Dutch, but I could only choose "Dutch (The Netherlands)". In the Netherlands they speak dutch but use QUERTY. So, what I did was leave my phone in "Dutch (The Netherlands)", but I am using the French AZERTY keyboard.

The problem is, that the autocorrect now is also in French. When i typ a word the autocorrect shows a dutch suggestion, a french sugestion and an english suggestion. By default (pressing the spacebar) the phone chooses the French suggestion. Is there anyway to have an AZERTY keyboard and have the Dutch suggestion by default?

The keys are much larger using 2 letters per key, which is great for people like me with big hands.Now I can type so fast on this baby it still auto corrects and everything.

HTC Incredible :: No Input From Some Keys On Keyboard

May 1, 2010

I am at a little over a day with my first smartphone, the Incredible.I'm mostly impressed, but this keyboard issue is really bugging me. Basically, here's what happens: I go to compose a message, I turn the device to landscape mode, and when I press the W key, it does not input regardless of where I push relative to the key. On rare occasions, it will work, but I can't think of anything that I might have done to fix the problem.I tried to sleep/resume, power off/on, remove/replace battery, and calibrate the text input, but there seems to not be any resolution.Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone figure it out? I'd hate to exchange the phone for this one thing, but you don't realize how often you need the W until it won't function!
