Android : Building Several Apps From One Code Base

Apr 15, 2010

I need to build several slightly different apps from one code base, where only the styling and some variables are different in each app.Right now I use an awful "Constants" class where I comment in/out the correct values for each app, in addition to  copying the correct graphic resources to the res/drawable/ folder.One way to make this less painful would be to refer to a Java static Constants#appVariant from styles.xml and splash.xml, e.g like this pseudo-entry:

 <style name="Artwork">     <item name="android:background">@drawable/ border_{Constants.appVariant}</item>  </style>

Is this possible?And I guess there are better ways of solving this.All hints are appreciated!

Android :: Multiple Activites That Share 75% Of Layout - Layouts Within Layouts?

Sep 6, 2010

I'm creating a game where there's a screen that, for the most part, is shared by four different activites - but a key portion of the screen will be completely different, depending upon which activity is active. Basically, on the left will be an image of the player and along the bottom there will be a row of buttons (let's say for Armour, Weapons, Magic, Skills).  This leaves the top-right portion, which will need to dynamically change to represent the button pressed.  (So, one moment the top-right portion is the armour selection activity, and the next it's the weapon selection activity, and so on.)

Is this possible? Can I have a layout within a layout and dynamically point the nested layout at a (nested) layout.xml of my choosing?  Or, am I looking at just duplicating most of the layout four times (for the four different activities?) Or, am I going to be looking at linking the four activities to a (the top-right) view component, and then having to dynamically construct all of *that* view's child views based on the currently active activity? Well, that's about as much sense as I can make this question make.

Android :: Cup Cake Code Base

Feb 19, 2009

I have heard a lot about this code base, but have seen nothing.The possabilities are amazing, why are we so limited. If the sceen is multitouch capable, why not use it? When will we see a fix for the issue with the talk button on the headset, or the ability to run apps from the sd card, or the ability to stop running apps. This android os is linux based, yet these issues are holding us back? I am invested in this platform, and I really believe this is important. I hope to see more functionality. We have a platform that can truely compete with the iphone, but we must work hard to perserve our image.

Android :: Code Base Sync With ADP2

Dec 22, 2009

I'm trying to develop some middle layer application based on the source tree from android.git.kernel.org. I'm using the libmedia.so to link my code and has no problem. I also tried to link my code using the other libmedia.so which I pulled from HTC ADP2 (I ordered last week) and found that my code have many undefined references to some functions (or method).

This make me think that source code I gitted from android.git.kernel.org (two weeks ago) does not sync which the code in the HTC ADP2 Android device.

How do I sync my source tree with the HTC ADP2 ?

Android :: OpenGL ES Render Textures Of Non Base 2 Dimensions

Question before I dive deeper into converting my current rendering system to openGL. I heard that textures needed to be in base2 sizes in order to be stored for rendering. Is this true?

My application is very tight on memory, but most of the bitmaps are not a perfect square. Does storing non-base 2 textures waste extra memory?

Android :: Access Base Directory Assets From Another Application?

Mar 16, 2010

I get a lot of requests in my application to allow for custom icons packs from BetterCut / Open Home. The way it seems to work is you install BetterCut or Open Home, then you can install tons of these free icon packs from the market. Once installed both those apps (and other apps) will poll for those icon packs and use the icons. I want to know how to poll the install applications for the asset folders that are available. I have opened up a few of the icon packs and verified that there is an assets folder in there and they are full of all the icon png files. I've searched on here, other code sites, google, etc., but haven't found any leads.

From the answer below I have written some code to try and list a file from my own projects assets directory but it does not seem to work.
Resources r = this.getResources();
AssetManager a = r.getAssets();
String[] list = a.list("/");
Log.d("test", "Length of / is "+list.length);
for (String s : list) { Log.d("test", s); }
Log.d("test", "Length of /assets is "+a.list("/assets").length);
Log.d("test", "Length of /assets/ is "+a.list("/assets/").length);
Log.d("test", "Length of /assets/ is "+a.list("/assets/").length);
Log.d("test", "Length of ./assets/ is "+a.list("./assets/").length);
Log.d("test", "Length of ./assets is "+a.list("./assets").length);

This is the output:
03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of / is 6
03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): AndroidManifest.xml
03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): META-INF
03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): assets

03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): res
03-16 12:25:04.591: DEBUG/test(13526): resources.arsc
03-16 12:25:04.614: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of /assets is 0
03-16 12:25:04.637: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of /assets/ is 0
03-16 12:25:04.661: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of /assets/ is 0
03-16 12:25:04.692: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of ./assets/ is 0
03-16 12:25:04.716: DEBUG/test(13526): Length of ./assets is 0

I figured out that you can read from the assets directory without actually using the folder name:
InputStream is = assetManager.open("test.png");
I also tried this with an asset in Appliction 2 from Application 1, where the folder path is /asset/icon/image.png:
InputStream is = assetManager.open("icon/image.png");
Next I figured out that you can list a directory inside assets:
String[] list = assetManager.list("icons");
That also works great. The only thing failing right now is how to list the base directory assets.

Android :: Reuse Main Code Base Without Having To Copy Whole Droid Project Each Time?

iPhone uses multiple targets in the same project which works well. If android cant do this do I need to compile binaries of the code base in one project and then import into each new app project? If so how? I'm using Eclipse and am an intermediate Java developer.

This trick works fine when i try to move a view within a single TableRow but not when i try to move it up or down. I've also discovered that if i create a single RelativeLayout and apply the same animation there, it works fine, but i can't arrange all the components i need on the screen. Could anybody please provide me any hints about it?

Android :: Different Screen Sizes X Different Layouts

Apr 27, 2010

supporting multiple screens (sizes and resolutions). I´ve searched not only this forum but many different websites and the android documentation but I´m probably doing a small mistake so things are not working properly.

Well, my main layout was designed with a HVGA screen, and it works great. When I try the same app on a WVGA, FWVGA, WQVGA or FWQVGA, I always get an unused space in the end of the layout because the screen ´s "heightnes" is proportionally bigger than HVGA´s.

So I consulted the documentation and decided to give a try on resource qualifiers, so I then created a nonsense UI and placed it on layout- large, created a new AVD using the WVGA skin and launched the app. Well, all I got was my old and not well stretched layout. The same happened to a FWVGA AVD.

This is the first problem. The second is: medium high density medium size screens and medium density large screens have the same resolution: how can I create a layout that is loaded for both, but not for (for example) medium size medium density or small size medium density screens?

Android :: Rules For Inflating Layouts

The mdpi layout which is used works on the device but the screen just looks really empty and I would prefer to scale things up. So is there a xml argument for scaling the layout, maybe something similar to Bitmap.Options.targetDensity. Or could this be done with a new LayoutInflater class?

Android : Using Multiple Layouts For Different Screens

Dec 3, 2009

I am getting my feet wet developing software for the Android. My test app will have multiple screens (each having their own layout file). The main screen will direct the user to view the other screens based on user input. I kinda see this as layers of cake. Bottom layer being main; then you add and remove layers as the user makes UI inputs. The crazy trouble is how to view a second layer. I have created a second class which has its own onCreate method, which has its on setContentView(R.layout.secondlayer).

This class extends Activity much like my primary class does. I have a click event on a button within the main layout. This button will instantiate the new second layer class which I have done. And that is where my story endsI don't know what to do from this point. This is surely a newbie question If someone has an example that would be extremely helpful teach me to fish and I will be on my way.

Android :: Changing Screens - Switching Between Layouts

Jun 1, 2010

I am trying to create an app for android 1.5 which would be organized around 4-5 'screen's that will be changing in a given order.

So I start ma app with the first screen, which it's background and a button. When I click on the button a new screen appears with a different background and different options which lead to next screens. Sth. that is usually seen in games. The problem is that I need to pass a lot of data between those 'screens' like and array with recorded sound. My idea was to create a separate xml layout file for each screen and change the context in the activity class so ie:

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

A simple test app for 3 screens works this way but my I don't really like this approach and it seems to be inappropriate.

Is this the correct way of organizing such an app in android or should I take another approach - if I should, please give a more detailed advice on how to do this.

Android :: Use Motion Events With Multiple Layouts

Aug 22, 2009

I'm beginning in android development, and I've stumbled upon a problem. My application has different layouts stored in xml files, and I use motion events such as onFling or onSingleTapup. These motion events seem to apply whatever layout i'm in. My problem is simply identifying which layout i'm currently using so I can define the appropriate action. I guess what i'm trying to do is a bit like this:

@Override public boolean onSingleTapUp(MotionEvent e) {         if(using main layout)         {                 //do this         }        else if (using settings layout)         {               // do that         }         return false;
