Android : Load Layout Dynamically At Runtime In Droid?

Nov 20, 2010

My application requires 2 screens and for this I have created two different XML layout files using RelativeLayout. One layout file loads whenever I run my Activity. Now I want to load the second layout on to the same Activity , when user click on a button in OptionsMenu and also when user press Back button the first screen loads instead of exiting the application. So that i don't need to create another Intent in my application.

Android :: Possible To Load A Layout XML At Runtime And Load Into Activity?

Sep 4, 2010

Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?

In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.

What should be the best design you would recommend?

Android : Arbitrarily Load Resources At Runtime In Droid?

Mar 7, 2010

I've got some XML resources in my Android app. Each one has a different name like "bicycle.xml" and "car.xml". I'd like to know if there's a way to load resources based on conditions during run time.

As an example...
Say I had a text input in my app. When the user enters "bicycle", my app can look up an XML resource by that name, parse and load it. Whereas if they enter "car", they would end up with the data from the other XML file.

I've noticed so far that to load resources, you have to use the autogenerated "R" class, which restricts you to hard-coding resources at compile time.

Android : Dynamically Load App List In Droid?

Aug 13, 2010

Let's say, there are four apps in the system: app1, app2, app3, app4.

Be default, when the system is up, all apps will be shown in the home screen. Now if we provide a customized log in screen, user A log in, then for this user, he can only see (and use ) app1 and app2. Then A log out, user B log in, he can only see app3 and app4.

Does API provide such capability to load the app list dynamically?

Android :: Dynamically Loading JAR File At Runtime

Mar 18, 2009

I am storing the required test.jar file in the /sdcard. I want to load it dynamically at runtime and want to execute a function xyz() resides in that. For this purpose I had written following code:
But got ClassCastException : dalvik.system.PathClassLoader

Following is my code ,
import java.io.File; import java.io.IOException; import java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException; import java.lang.reflect.Method; import java.net.URL; import java.net.URLClassLoader;

import android.app.Activity; import android.os.Bundle; import android.util.Log;
public class Collabera extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
private static final Class[] parameters = new Class[] { URL.class };
public static void loadURLClass(String classPathURL) throws IOException {
File f = new File(classPathURL);
URL url = f.toURL();
URLClassLoader systemLoader = (URLClassLoader) ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader();
Class systemLoaderClass = URLClassLoader.class;
try { Method method = systemLoaderClass.getDeclaredMethod("addURL", parameters);
method.setAccessible(true);
method.invoke(systemLoader, new Object[] { url });
} catch (Throwable t) { t.printStackTrace();
throw new IOException( "Error, could not add URL to system classloader");
} }
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);
Log.i("See","**************Before Loading Class Path**************");
try { Class.forName("test.Test1");
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) { System.out.println(" Test Class Not Found ....");
} Log.i("See","**************After Loading Class Path**************");
try { loadURLClass("//sdcard//test.jar");
Class c = Class.forName("test.Test1");
Log.i("See"," Test Class Found ....");
Method method = c.getMethod("xyz", null);
Object o = c.newInstance();
String s = (String) method.invoke(o);
Log.i("See","Got method: " + s);
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) { System.out.println(" Test Class Not Found ....");
} catch (Exception e) { // TODO Auto-generated catch block e.printStackTrace();

Android : Create FindViewById Parm Dynamically Or Programmatically At Runtime

Sep 27, 2010

I have an xml layout that will display a grid made up of textviews within tablerows. The textview names are cell00, cell01, etc. At runtime, my program will determine which cell needs to be changed.

Is there a way get format a name so that it can be passed to the findViewById method at runtime? For example, if cell00 is needed, how can I generate the parm in this code?

TextView currcell = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.cell00)

Something like "cell"+00 doesn't compile because the findViewById method doesn't accept a String type. I don't want have every textview name in the grid hardcoded in the program - there must be a better way.

Android 2.2 Phone - Dynamically Loading External Library At Runtime?

Jul 29, 2013

I am using and android 2.2 phone for testing and getting an error.

07-27 01:24:55.692: W/System.err(14319): java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.shoaib.AndroidCCL.MyClass in loader dalvik.system.DexClassLoader@43abbc20

First I wrote the following class:

Code:
package org.shoaib.androidccl;
import android.util.Log;
public class MyClass {
public MyClass() {
Log.d(MyClass.class.getName(), "MyClass: constructor called.");
}
public void doSomething() {
Log.d(MyClass.class.getName(), "MyClass: doSomething() called.");
}
}

And I packaged it in a DEX file that I saved on my device's SD card as `/sdcard/testdex.jar`.

Then I wrote the program below, after having removed `MyClass` from my Eclipse project and cleaned it:

Code:

public class Main extends Activity {
[MENTION=1299008]supp[/MENTION]ressWarnings("unchecked")
[MENTION=439709]override[/MENTION]

Android :: Any Set Style Method At Runtime In Layout File?

Feb 1, 2009

I created my style in styles.xml, lets say MyStyle. I can use it in any layout file by style="@style/MyStyle". Also my generated R class have R.style.MyStyle, my question is if I can use it at runtime to "setStyle" - unfortunately View doesn't have such a method. If not what is R.style.MyStyle used for? (I already know that custom themes IDs are also in R.style and can be used to setTheme, but MyStyle is not a theme).

Android :: Choose Button Layout To Include At Runtime

Dec 17, 2009

I have a complex dialog-layout that has to be customized for small screens to decrease its height on such devices. This can easily be achieved by decreasing the height of several single Buttons and Textfields in the layout, each by a small amount. Of course much of the layout still stays the same, so I figured I could use the <include/>-tag. This was the idea:

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout"
/res/layout/include_button_layout.xml /res/layout-small/include_button_layout.xml

I figured that android would choose which button-layout to include at runtime. I couldn't get it to run, so I guess I was wrong. And if so, can anyone confirm whether this is the way to do it?

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_default"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"
/res/layout/include_above_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_below_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_default.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_small.xml
/res/layout-small/dialog_layout.xml
==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_small"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"

Android :: Dynamically Adding A View To Activity Layout

Aug 18, 2010

I have a custom view (an extension of a TextView) that I want to dynamically add to my Layout (don't want to include it in the main.xml file).

The book says to fetch the RelativeLayout using findViewById() in my java code then create a new instance of my custom view, then use addView on the RelativeLayout to add the new view.

I'm not getting any errors, but when I click my button to add the new view, nothing is happening (view isn't being added). Do I need to set additional properties on my custom view (layout width, layout height for example) in order for it to be shown?

Android :: Layout Not Displayed Properly While Loading Listview Dynamically

The only problem is the position of the textview. The xml layout file is as under:

Android :: Displaying XML-based Layout / Adding Text Dynamically

Sep 12, 2009

I have a LinearLayout defined in XML that I want to use repeatedly to display elements of a list. The XML-layout looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="@drawable/background"
android:paddingBottom="5px">

<TextView
android:id="@+id/destination"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textSize="22dp"
android:text="@string/test_destination"
android:paddingLeft="5px"/>

<TextView
android:id="@+id/date"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textSize="15dp"
android:text="@string/test_date"
android:paddingLeft="5px"/>

<TableLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/info"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:paddingLeft="5px"
android:paddingTop="10px" >

I gather information about certain events from a webpage, and then I want to display all events in a list using the above layout for each event. My current approach is to have a LinearLayout as parent and then adding each event as a row.

Problem number one is to add the layout to each event (the number of events is varying). I.e., I want to dynamically inflate this layout for each event. I also don't want the text to be hard coded into the layout (as above) but added at runtime. I don't know how to do this. I have tried something like the following without any success.

LinearLayout eventView = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.layout.event);
parentView.addView(eventView);


Problem number two is then to add these layouts to the parent view group and display it on the screen. When I try to do this using parent.addView(child), the program crashes at runtime and I can't figure out why.

It's kind of hard to describe the specific problem, since I'm new to GUI-programming on Android and I'm sort of programming by trial and error right now. Anyway, if you are able to help me with some of the problems it would be greatly appreciated. Linus

EDIT:
The problem now is adding text dynamically to the TextViews. I try this:

TextView dest = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.destination);dest.setText("myText");

only to discover that dest is null. Any ideas why and how to fix this?

EDIT 2:
I have narrowed the problem even more, but I really don't understand its nature. This is the trouble-method: Code...
it somehow works (even though the events are displayed in reverse order). Anyone knows what's going on here?

Android :: Load Markers Dynamically For Current Position In Android Google Maps?

I'm currently developing an app for Android which uses google map service. Because users will be able to see thousands of markers I would like to load only those which are currently within the map bounds (i.e. when user look at specific map tile). I know how to do it with javascript/html. However, Android doesn't seem to provide any similar methods such as containsLatLng(latlng) or getBounds (I only found getLatitudeSpan and getLongitudeSpan, but don't know how can I use them in order to achieve the similar effect). Can anyone give me some hint on that?
