I have a widget, and I want it to make a phone call to a preset number when the user clicks on it. How do I do this? I havn't yet understood how widgets work, so it would be really helpful if you could provide a sample code.
1) After I make a call, the screen goes black in a matter of seconds. I'm typically using a headset when I notice this. To end the call (or enter numbers in a call menu) I need to press the sleep button to get the screen to light up again. This is a pain in the a$$.I have the screen timeout set for 2 mins.
2) About once or twice a day the home screen will lock where I can't press anything. I need to reboot to fix.
I've had my Moto Droid since it basically came out last Nov and I have never ever run into a problem with the phone until last night. I had a phone call and after I got off the phone, I noticed my droid reseted itself and it wasn't going back to the home screen. Meaning it would just display the word "Droid" then go right into the droid red eye screen, then right back to the word Droid and just kept repeating itself.
I took the battery out and put it back in, but it kept doing the same thing. I am really not sure what would cause my phone to do this, but the only new change I can think of was that I installed the "TMZ" application to my droid about 3 hours prior to this happening. But the application worked fine and I really hope it wasn't because of that. Is there anything I can do before going to Verizon? I would really hate giving up my phone with all my stuff in it, but I know theres probably not much I can do if I cant even get to the home screen.
I wrote about this earlier, I had an issue when making a call the screen stays off and I cannot access the keypad or anything while on a call when I remove the phone from my ear. I had this happen again today, but noticed it went away when I took the call indoors. This seems to be an issue when I make a call outdoors, maybe it is the bright sunlight, but the screen refuses to come back on when i am on a call outside. I had to use the keypad to make selections on a call today but was unable to since the screen stayed off. Have others noticed this happening in bright light calls outside? Also, what can be done to correct this?
Not sure how to fix this, but several times when I make a call and try to end it, the screen stays off and I cannot hit the END CALL button. This has happened a few times when I dialed the wrong number and wanted to just end the call before it connected, but when I flipped the phone back over from my ear it stayed off and the call kept going. Also, sometimes it will flash on for an instant then go back off again, still cannot end the calls.
I am designing a home screen widget. I ran this widget on a HTC Hero device, which has a screen of 320 pixels * 480 pixels with mdpi. It ran perfect on HTC Hero. The widget takes 3 cells * 2 cells space, i.e. 240 pixels * 200 pixels.Then I ran this widget on a Nexus One device, which has a screen of 480 pixels * 800 pixels, mdpi. Since Nexus One also is mdpi, so I though 240dip is equivalent to 240 pixels on Nexus One and 200dip is equivalent to 200 pixels on Nexus One, so the widget will not take 3 cells * 2 cells space on Nexus One device. To my surprise, when running on Nexus One device, the widget take exact 3 cells * 2 cells, about 360 pixels * 300 pixels, on Nexus One device.I am confused. The layout xml above specifies 240dip in width and 200dip in height for the widget, but why did it take 360 pixels * 300 pixels on Nexus One Device? What am I missing?
I am a total newbie in Android and want to develop an application which need to make phone call using the API. I googled around and find that the open SDK didn't support making phonecalls. All the function required to make phone call have been put inside com.android.internal.telephony, which is an internal APIs.I just wonder if there is any methods or alternatives API that I can make use of.
This is more of an annoyance, but whenever I reply to a message off the home screen widget, it automatically defaults to the home number for that contact, instead of replying to the same (cell) number that it was sent from. If I go into the messaging app, it works as it should (replies to the same number).
I have a Samsung S5282 and when I make a call appear on the screen a lock and it blocks, not letting me have access to disconnect the call function for example.I've seen the phone settings and found nothing that disables this function, is it possible to remove this feature and how can I do that.Android 4.2
From Android widget screen guidelines,we know that, home screen has 4*4 cells, and in portrait orientation, each cell is 80 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. I think these are for baseline HVGA screen. How about for large screens and hdpi screens, do they still have 4*4 cells for widget and each cell in portrait orientation is still 80 pixels * 100 pixels?
I had it on my droid but I have since retired that beauty for a Samsung Fascinate. I am looking for the app that allows you to be taken to your home screen after you end a call instead of going to that persons contact card or the call log screen.
Is there a way to extend the time that the backlight stays on whilst making a phone call? Sure, I know that you can press the 'end call' button to end a call, but about three or four rings into the call, the backlight goes out, meaning that the on-screen 'end call' option is disabled, presumably also meaning that turning on the speakerphone during a call is going to need some tactile finger acrobatics.
Is it normal that my Captivate makes this weird buzzing sound while the phone is making a call? Also, while I'm talking to someone on it, you can still hear that buzzing sound as they talk. IDK if it's a speaker issue or an AT&T issue or what.
Im still looking for a widget to put my Incredible to sleep without pushing the power button. I am using No lock for the ability to use the touchpad to turn on but I hate using the power button to turn it off and leaving the screen on, even for 30 seconds, has to be draining the battery. (I am constantly on/off/on/off the phone throughout the day.)
I would like something I can put on the home screen that when touched, puts the phone to sleep. This will help save my power button in the long run as well. Ive searched and cant find anything.
What's everybody using for an RSS app? I'm using NetaShare. I really like it, but it's lacking a home screen widget - I sorta wrote about it as part of my top 5 favorites, but I'm wondering if there might be something better that allows you to download and store RSS content on your phone and has a home screen widget.
HI took a look at the home screen widget design recently and I tried to deploy a simple widget with 4x1 portrait background provided in Widget.I tried it in HVGA emulator (screen size 320x480 or something) and on Nexus One (screen size 480x800) and the widget seems to be the same size with respect to other UI elements (search widget etc) on both devices. How is that possible when one screen is 320px wide and the other one is 480px? Is the graphics in png format being automatically resized somehow based on screen width? If so, is it better to create the home screen widget graphics to make it perfectly fit to HVGA screen with 320px or is it better to create the graphics to fit the largest screen width possible so it would shrink itself on smaller screens (based on assumption shrinking an image is always better than magnifying it)?
I want to create a custom widget for my application which should be used for doing search internally in my application.But i am not able to place an Edit text control inside a widget.While browsing further i found that Edittext box was not included for creating custom widgets.I was surprised to see google's search widget showing an edittext box.Is there a way to add an edittext box in a widget...?
We just released our first widget to the market called AudioManager, it's available now and free to download to anyone who has cupcake already installed.AudioManager is a home-screen Widget that allows you to get live readings of your current volume levels on your Android phone (similar to your computer's "Volume Mixer").Tap on the screen and you can adjust the volume levels individually for the following streams: Alarm, music, notifications, ringer, system and voice call volume.The widget comes in two sizes, large (4x1) and small (2x1). The AudioManager Console is also available through your application launchpad in case you do not need the Widget on your screen but wish to access all volume streams from one place.Attached are a few screenshots, check it out and let us know. Only tested with Android's default home-screen, however, there are mixed reports of the widget working for aHome and dxTop with the latest versions.
I'm look for one that I can just scroll thru all my contacts on one of my home screens, you know with out hitting the contacts icon on the screen. Just the way you can do it on sweeter home 2. I'm not looking for one where I can just put my favs on. I'm looking for one that will list all my contacts.
I'm trying to create an icon/widget (1 cell x 1 cell) that can be placed on the home screen of android. The widget will look and act exactly like the other standard shortcuts in android. It will have an icon and under that a label, it will be selectable with the trackball (highlight able) it will be highlighted when it is selected / clicked. How do I go about creating this home screen widget? Do I have to create the widget myself using code/xml or is there some standard xml, style, theme, code that I can use to ensure that the widget will have the same style/theme as the other home screen widgets? I currently have the following.....
Find this Widget at the bottom of my home screen? I downloaded it from www.android-apps.com and for some reason uninstalled it from my phone and now I cannot find it again. It's a widget that stores the 5 most recent apps on a "dock" that takes up 4 spaces on any screen.
I tried to make an Android program where I can call a single number by clicking button. Works fine but as I end calling, the emulator shows call log. Instead of this I would that my program returns to the screen where is that calling button I made.
