Android :: Unable To Start Activity - Load Home Screen Or Show Notification During Calls

Dec 18, 2009

Has anyone been successful showing a notification, starting an activity, or loading the home screen *during* a call on the Droid? All three of these actions can be done with the emulator running 2.0, but will not run from the Droid. I don't receive any type of notification that these actions fail on the Droid. Although, every action works when a call is *not* active. Missed calls during a call *do* show up in the notification bar, so I am hoping there is a way.

I understand that the notification bar can not be accessed by users during calls, but it would be nice if a notification could at least be delivered. I also understand the security and usability concerns of displaying a window or action during phone calls. Although, there are a lot of users who would like actionable functionality based on calls.

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 : Possible To Have A Separate Java File For Each Activity?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm currently developing an Android application, but I'd like to be able to handle button click events etc in a separate file for each Activity. Is this possible? At the moment, I have one very large file that handles all events for several Activity windows.

Android : Do Activity Classes Need To Be In A Separate .java File?

Sep 8, 2010

I am new to android development and am currently working my way through the "Hello..." Tutorials on the developer website.

I got stuck on the Tab Layout walkthrough and the only way I could resolve it was to put each Activity Class in a separate .java file.

I was wondering if all Activities need to be in separate .java files, or am I missing something.

HTC Droid Eris :: Any Way To Load Default Android Lock Screen?

Feb 24, 2010

I absolutely hate the sense lock screen. The downward swipe unlocks way to easily. If I don't have a pattern lock enabled my pocket sends all kind of crazy messages and phone calls. I dislike the pattern lock because I basically have to unlock my phone twice every time I want to use it. Is there a way to load the default android lock screen as it appears on the Driod or Nexus 1? The sideways swipe seems much more secure to me. I have tried other apps like lock 2.0 but then you lose the slide to answer and my pocket answers for me before I know I have a call.

Android :: Activity Does Not Load After First Run?

Apr 24, 2010

This is a silly question... but after following the instructions and running my application, I can't get it to run again. I hit run, the emulator opens up, and nothing happens at startup. When I attempt to launch the app from the applications menu, I get the old version of the app. Breakpoints etc. don't seem to do anything. Tried creating a new project altogether with different names for the activity, etc. and running that, still nothing.

Android :: Activity Timeout On WebView Load

Aug 3, 2009

In my app I have to load external page into WebView-based activity. Some of my users with slower connections are reporting screen timeout while waiting for the page to load. What would be a good way of loading the page on backgorund thread and then refreshing the screen? Use HttpClient to fetch it and then use WebView#loadData? My fear is - the page I'm loading is pretty complicated there's some JS that happens on load - wouldn't I just mess it up? Is there an alternative way of doing what I need?

Android :: Application Gets Name Of First Activity In Which Load Data

Mar 14, 2010

I think i'm getting senile because I was convinced that to give a name to your application, you had to fill this part of the manifest: <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="MyApplicationName"> However for a reason I don't understand, my application gets the name of my first activity, in which I load data, henceforce, It is called "Loading"...(defined as follows in the manifest) <activity android:name="AccueilSplash" android:label="Loading">

Android :: Rapidly Load Data On Relaunch Of Activity

Nov 12, 2010

i am fetching XML from the web, parsing it and display it on the screen. The problem which i am getting is that the activity tries to load the data from web each time the activity is called.(Actually, my mobile app requires frequent trips to the server) So i am in search of the below solution: On Re-launch of an activity, the data from web should not be loaded again. (But it should load data from the cache or local database that we have created while calling the web-xml for the first time). creating a class that i can use to transparently make application faster by selectively caching items in memory. And thus, making users very happy and This class can even apply individual refresh times to each cached item.

So, i think i need to store the data in Cache , or in local database or something like that. Is there any way/technique to implement such thing ? so that it need not to load from web every-time on Re-launch of an activity. [Note: I want to do to make client happy by decreasing the loading time and running the application efficiently and optimizing application's loading time]

Android :: Adding Data To Intent Fails To Load Activity

Apr 11, 2010

I have a widget that supposed to call an Activity of the main app when the user clicks on widget body. My setup works for a single widget instance but for a second instance of the same widget the PendingIntent gets reused and as result the vital information that I'm sending as extra gets overwritten for the 1st instance. So I figured that I should pass widget ID as Intent data however as soon as I add Intent#setData I would see in the log that 2 separate Intents are appropriately fired but the Activity fails to pick it up so basically Activity will not come up and nothing happens (no error or warning ether)

Android :: Activity / Process Lifecycle - Save / Load Data To / From Disk

Nov 26, 2009

My app is made of two activities, A and B. I'm considering this sequence of steps: Activity A is started. A launches B [A is paused, B is running]. B launches a map intent [A and B are both paused now]. Now the user is using the maps application and the system decides it needs more memory. Can the system kill only one of my activities for memory, or will it always kill all activities in a "process" in this situation?

Both activities share some static data like:

class Data {
public static String mName;
public void save() {
// write to file: mName;...................

Android :: Don't Need Previous Activities Load On Pressing Back Button On First Activity

Jul 15, 2010

When i leave my app after pressing home button and then re launch it from menus it behaves in a strange way.Sometimes it launches the same activity on which i pressed home button.But sometimes it launches the first activity of my app. One reason for this could be that whenever system has memory shortage it clears any activities existing in But the strange thing is if i press back button from first activity it takes me back to the same activity on which i pressed home button and all other previous activities are also there(like if i press back button again previous activities also exist.)I haven't set any launching mode for any activity in my app(like single instance etc).What i don't need is that previous activities load on pressing back button on first activity.

Samsung Vibrant :: Separate Delays For Screen Off And Phone Lock Features?

Jul 22, 2010

Is there a way to have separate delays for the screen off and phone lock features? I like having the screen turn off quickly (since I believe power on/off for OLED is negligible) but it is annoying to have to constantly unlock the phone if I don't hit the power button within a second or so of the screen turning off.

Android :: Voice Recognition Activity Called In OnCreate Method / Causes App To Load Slowly

Oct 1, 2010

In my android app I call the voice recognition in my onCreate method of my startup activity. I have made it a preference to start up with the voice control or not. However, the app takes about 5-7 seconds to load when voice recognition is on. When it is off, the app starts almost instantly. Below is sample code, I have added Free_Form, max_results 1, and a custom prompt to mine.Why would calling the normal android speech recognition take sooo long to load in my OnCreate method?

Android :: Handle Screen Orientation Changes With An Activity Started Within A Tab's Activity

Nov 2, 2010

I have a TabActivity, and each Tab corresponds to its own Activity. In one of them, in the onCreate method, I use startActivityForResult to show a dialog (specifically, Bump's BumpAPI activity).

code:...............

The problem is that when the screen orientation changes, it tries to create the tab's activity again which makes another BumpAPI dialog, resulting in multiple stacked on top of each other. Do I have a hook into the started activity to cancel the previous one when the orientation changes?

A workaround seems to be to add a button that when clicked, starts the second activity, but that adds an unnecessary step.

Also, I can't fix the screen orientation for the entire tabActivity because some of them require typing and users may want to use their physical keyboards.

Android :: Launch Activity From Droid Home Screen Widget

Apr 24, 2010

I am desperately trying to get my head wrapped around how to implement home screen widgets. Right now, I (finally) was able to get a button on my widget respond to a button press setting up an intent filter in the manifest.

However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to launch an activity when the button is pressed. Basically, here's the code i have...

What I really want to do, though, is start a new activity, not display a toast message. I know it has something to do with pending intents, but I can't figure out how to get that to work.

Android :: Load Only Markers That Would Be Displayed On Current Screen?

Aug 5, 2010

Using Google Maps on Android does anyone have any ideas on how to load only markers that would be displayed on the current screen? I'm thinking about sending a request to a web service that returns the lat/lng for the relevant markers. But what would the parameters be that I could use to calculate if a given lat/lng is within the screen?

Android :: Create A Proper Splash / Load Screen?

Jan 21, 2010

I have an application that uses OpenGL on a GLSurfaceView. The problem is that the initial load takes quite a while processing textures and getting things ready.

What i want to do is have a simple PNG displayed (with a slight animation) while the GLSurfaceView is getting ready. As soon as it's ready to render, i would like to tear down the splash screen.

What is the right way to do this? I've tried ViewFlipper, ViewSwitcher and a bunch of other things to switch between my R.layout.main view and my GLSurfaceView but i can't seem to get it right. Any ideas?

Android :: Handle Lock Screen Button Input For Droid Activity?

Nov 12, 2010

Suppose I have something like an alarm activity which launches the alarm through the lock screen, accomplished via

getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED);
getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON);

Now, from here I could press the back button to kill the activity, but I also want a press of the lock button to silence the alarm. How would I go about creating a handler for presses of the lock screen button?
