Android :: Possible To Set Custom HTTP Headers In WebView?
Jan 5, 2010
I have to access a web page from within my application and, in order to have access to it, I need to set some custom HTTP headers. I want to use the WebViewclass in my activity but, as far as I can tell, it's not possible to set custom HTTP headers.
So is there a way of using the existing web browser (or WebView) with custom HTTP headers? My application targets Android 1.6.
I've found some information about this topic, but I was curious as to whether anyone has had any success loading webpages in a WebView with custom headers. There doesn't seem to be any simple way of doing this. I've seen an implementation that involved downloading the webpage and separately loading the data into the WebView. While this is not difficult, the WebView then demonstrated problems with relative URLs and downloading images.
Now i want to display some unicode characters and i have used tag: something herer . But it seems that webview can not find the Arial font because i can only see UFO - Characters. Do i have to copy arial.ttf to somewhere or how can i use this true- type-font with webview?
I have a WebView on my Android application which loads (WebView.loadUrl()) different local HTML files from phone's internal storage. I would like to include some custom css styles for them, Now, I could have my app edit every HTML file and add linking reference for the CSS file.I could also read the file contents, add the CSS linking and use WebView.loadData() to load it.But is it possible to do this a lot simpler and efficiently.Note: The HTML files are downloaded from a website. So editing them manually is not possible in this case, but once downloaded they can be edited via the app if necessary.
I am hoping to create my own protocol handler for urls in a webview. I have tried two approaches already. The first was to attempt something similar to the approach defined here to create a customer protocol handler. http://java.sun.com/developer /onlineTraining/ protocol handlers / This works in a command-line Java program if I correctly set the system property java.protocol.handler.pkgs, but it does not work in Android, probably because I cannot figure out where to define this system property. Defining the system property in the code does not work. I assume this is because it needs to be loaded when the application first starts. I have also attempted to use URL.setURLStreamHandlerFactory. This works for creating URL objects within the code, but it does not seem to be associated with the WebView. Any ideas on how to get this working?
I'm looking for an app to download only the email headers with (or without, but better with) the possibility to download the whole mail.
The reason is to be able to take a quick look to all af them, avoiding wasting time of downloading when some friend has just the happy idea of sending you a heavy power point, or the pictures from your last party, or just simple spam.
I must say that there's another not less important reason: I don't have a 3G flat rate.
I want to generate a Listview that has some dividers between some of the entries, like it can be seen in some of the property sections. See the example below. I try to generate a List that consists of some textviews followed by one of the fancy dividers explaining the next part of the list and then again some text views. How can this be done? I thought about creating different views to add to the list? Is this the way to go?
I am trying to display a high score table in my application and wanted to know the Best Practice for displaying static headers or footers. The data for the High Score tableis a REST web service returing up to 100 JSON records. I have looked at some of the previous posts http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/threa. that talk about addHeaderView() & addFooterView() but they all seem to indicate that the footer or header will scroll off the screen. My 1st question is has someone been able to implement this in a clean way to allow a basic static header or footer. My second question is is their another way I could accomplish my goal of displaying my high score table besides a List View. I will be displaying 6 columns of data which will need to scroll vertically.
It means, that it has vertical headers (fixed horizontally), which can be scrolled vertically, and horizontal headers (fixed vertically), which can be scrolled horizontally. The contents should be scrollable both vertically and horizontally. To make it clear, I tried to 'draw' here...........
I'm adding section headers for my listView, there are few methods on the web. Since I'm using simpleCursorAdapter to manage my listView, I adopted phil bogle's method. http://thebogles.com/blog/2010/02/section-headers-for-android-listviews/
The error occurred at this part of the code:
This is the LogCat shows how they compare while I scroll up the list:
The correct output should be: Sun, 05 Sep 2010 112 120
But when I scroll up, the setViewValue calls 120 first and compare with preDate(show above), it becomes: Sun, 05 Sep 2010 112 Sun, 05 Sep 2010 120
So how can I make the section headers fixed after creating the headers? Why setViewBinder been called while scrolling?
I am trying to download an Android APK file that is output by a php page. I have the following and it works on firefox but not on the phone. Firefox downloads with an apk extension but has a little firefox icon next to it. The phone downloads the file with a .html extension, why is this?
I am trying to create a basic datasheet in my application using a TableLayout. The first row contains the titles of each column. Every row thereafter is data. I would like the data to be scrollable while keeping the first title row visible (i.e. the first row would not scroll with the rest).I have tried something like the following (unsuccessfully)
I'm getting some odd side effects when I set a header to my ListActivities. The ListActivity actually allows you to scroll up "behind" the header and click...which sends my app into a fit of errors b/c my Lists are connected to a Cursor and selecting behind the header returns a value of -1. Ive noticed this doesnt happen to any of my Lists that dont have headers.
Requirement: Display query results in a list with a header view atop each group. (results grouped from database) Looking at Mark's MergeAdapter. Wondering if I might be able to use a single cursor and have each adapter filter on the group field? That a viable approach?
I have an ExpandableListView (ELV) with the groups having LinearLayout. I have set the height of the group to some value (38dip in this case, equivalent to two lines of text). If the group heading is long and would take more than 2 lines, it is not shown properly in the ELV item - some part of the view gets scrolled. On the other hand, if I change android:layout_height to "wrap_content" in the LinearLayout, the groups always show all the lines. But the line widths are variable, i.e., short titles show up with only 1 line and long titles show up with 2, 3 or 4 lines. That looks ugly. I would like to implement the height to be something like max("38dip", "wrap_content"). Is there a way to do this?
Even programmatically, I do not seem to be getting the actual height of the group if I set android:layout_height to "wrap_content". Any suggestions there?
Is there a way to set up the email client to download only the message headers? I don't want to wait to download all my messages. Plus, I receive a lot of fun mail and I don't want to download it on my SGS. I just want to know what messages I have received and select the ones that I want.
There's another two simpler questions at the end of this post, I want to know those too.i'm wrapping a native API to Android by NDK.But when building it don't find the header files.I have the following structure.
Code: LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir) include $(call all-subdir-makefiles) LOCAL_PATH :=/home/marcos/dev/workspace/rmsdk.native.wraper/jni include $(CLEAR_VARS) LOCAL_LDLIBS := -llog LOCAL_MODULE := ndk1 LOCAL_SRC_FILES := native.c DelegateDRMProcessorClient.cpp LOCAL_STATIC_LIBRARY := adept cryptopenssl dp expat fonts hobbes jpeg mschema png t3 xml zlib [code]....
I have a paid app on Android Market. I've set up an HTTPS notification URL in Google Checkout settings. Yet notifications don't come. Please, what am I doing wrong? Are realtime order notifications supported for Android Market at all? If so, is there a separate UI for setting those up?
I have a problem. I'm doing a http post request to a URL like this; DefaultHttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient(); HttpPost httppost = new HttpPost(url); HttpResponse response = httpclient.execute(httppost); I am able to get the response content (html in this case) but I would like to be able to get the url of the response. Is there a way? Or could i use some other technique to do the post request and retrieve the url? The repsonse url is lke www.url.com?x=1&y=2 and would like to get the parameter values, I've tried to use the getParams().getParameter() on the HttpResponse object without any success. So if anyone has a solution to get the parameters without getting the url.
