Android :: Prompt User To Save Changes When Back Button Is Pressed

Mar 17, 2010

I have an activity that contains several user editable items (an EditText field, RatingBar, etc). I'd like to prompt the user if the back/home button is pressed and changes have been made that have not yet been saved. After reading through the android documentation, it seems like this piece of code should go in the onPause method. I've tried putting an AlertDialog in the onPause however the dialog gets shown and then immediately tears down because nothing is there to block the pause from completing.

Android :: Save State Of Droid Application When Back Button Is Pressed?

Sep 20, 2010

I have noticed while working in the emulator that whenever i get out of my app via any method other than pressing the back button, my toggle button (if pressed) will have its state saved and return to that state when i return to the app. im guessing its because its value gets saved in a bundle and reloaded when i return. when i leave the app via the back button, this does not happen and the toggle is always off when i return. is there any way to get the value of the toggle back if the user leaves via the back button, without having to save the value in a db table? alternatively, if my apps notification is in the status bar, i can be confident that the toggle should always be selected, so if there is no way to save the state, is there a way to find out if my apps notification is currently being displayed? then it would be easy to just set the toggle each time via a quick check of the status bar.

Android :: React To Screen_on Only When User Pressed Button

May 17, 2009

I have a BroadcastReceiver that receives SCREEN_ON. If the screen came on because the user pressed a button, I want to do something. However, if the screen was turned on by an app (e.g., alarm clock going off or SMS popup), then I don't want to do anything. Anyone know how I can differentiate between the two cases?

Android :: WebView.clearHistory() - Don't Want Back Button To Allow User To Go Back Further Than Current Session

Mar 31, 2009

I call WebView.clearHistory(), but I am still able to go back after doing so. I want to reuse a WebView, but I don't want the back button to allow the user to go back further than the current "session" of using the WebView. Anybody know what is the best way to handle this? I thought for sure that clearHistory() would do it.

Android :: Stop Following Activity If Home Key Or Pressed Back Pressed

Jul 8, 2010

I have a problem and that is my SplashScreen I have. It is built as an intro and after 3 seconds it shows the main menu of the program. Anyway, if I press down Back or Home button during the time the SplashScreen shows, it closes, but the activity I have chosen to follow after the SplashScreen will still run after the three seconds.

My code: **UPDATED CODE**

Handler ur = new Handler();
myRun = new Runnable() {
public void run() {
mainIntent = new Intent(SplashScreen.this,MyApp.class);

Android : User Action Emulate Hardware 'Back' Button?

Sep 6, 2010

I looked around and although there are many related questions I didn't see one that answers my exact question:

I would like to create an app that runs in the background that provides the exact same functionality as the hard coded 'Back' button in all cases.

The reason? I (for example) have a Droid X, and it is BIG. it makes it extremely hard to use one-handed and having a swipe gesture function as a back button (like in Palm Pre for example) would greatly increase the ease of use.

as far as I'm concerned the app could just be one simple class that contains:
1) a listener for the 'back' swipe
2) a call to the physical hard button itself

Is this possible? are there built in APIs for the hard coded buttons that would allow me to call them without actually pressing them?

Again - I'm not interested in overriding the button, I'm interested in making a software call to it - or failing that, in emulating it's behavior in any and all states and other apps!

Please forgive the naivete of this post. I am a very novice programmer and really I just want to know whether this is possible before I start to devote myself to trying to build it.

Android :: Application Crashes When User Presses Back Button / Where To Put Code?

Oct 6, 2010

First of all, maybe i went about this the wrong way in the first place. Situation is, i have a listview that when an item is clicked, it creates an intent and calls startActivityForResult() to another activity, to be able to edit the entries in the row. and that other activity after editing the required values, returns back to the calling activity, when the user clicks on a save button. The activity then uses the row Id to update the item.My problem now is that, if the user presses the BACK button instead, the application crashes. i have been looking around and see solutions like using Shared Preferences or onSavedInstanceState(), but i don't know where exactly i should be putting the code?

Android :: Prevent Activity From Saving State When User Selects Back Button

May 2, 2010

I have an Activity with a list that is bound to a ListAdapter reading data into a ArrayList from a database. All is well when the data is first loaded. While the Activity is open and the list is being displayed it is possible and likely that the data in the database will be updated by a service but the list does not reflect the changes because the ArrayList does not know about the changes. If the Activity is no longer in the foreground as would be the case if the user goes to the home screen and then is brought back to the foreground I would like for the Activity to not display what it did prior but rather reload the data using the ListAdapter the view is bound to. I think something needs to call finish() but I am not sure what.

This is what I have in the Activity.

Android :: Headset Button Is Being Pressed?

Jan 30, 2009

Does anyone know how to tell when the headset button is being pressed? I'd like to support the usb headsets and possibly bluetooth headsets. My app is a media player and ideally, I could register it somewhere so that if no app that uses the headset button has focus it button press would act as a play/pause command in my app. If the phone is ringing or a call is in progress, I'd like to be sensitive to that and let the button do what it normally does: pickup and hang up calls. we've been trying to chase the button down using this: Intent Filter headset Filter = new Intent Filter (Intent.ACTION_HEADSET_PLUG); headset Filter.addAction ("android.intent.action.HEADSET_STATE_CHANGED"); headsetFilter.addAction("android.bluetooth.intent.HEADSET_STATE"); headset Filter.addAction ("android.bluetooth.intent.HEADSET_STATE_CHANGED"); headset Filter.addAction ("android.bluetooth.intent.action.MODE_CHANGED"); headsetFilter.addAction("android.intent.action.MODE_CHANGED");

Android :: Communicate Which Button Pressed?

Sep 30, 2009

i have an app widget that has a couple of buttons on it, and in my onUpdate() call, I am hooking up the buttons to do something when you press them

RemoteViews remoteViews = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName (), R.layout.appwidget); remoteViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(, button1PendingIntent); remoteViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(, button2PendingIntent);

The problem is that when I click on button2, it sends the button1 pending intent. i think that's because it's reusing the pending intent. "If the creating application later re-retrieves the same kind of PendingIntent (same operation, same Intent action, data, categories, and components, and same flags), it will receive a PendingIntent representing the same token if that is still valid, and can thus call cancel() to remove it." So then the question is, how do I communicate which button was pressed?

Android :: Way To Pause Method In Progress To Wait For Button Be Pressed?

Oct 25, 2010

Basically I have created a blackjack game (first using just java) and it falls under an infinite while loop (this is so that the deck data is kept and everything works well. So first it deals the cards and then it needs to wait for either the hit button (which is displayed) or the stand button (which is displayed) to be clicked. I initially did this with a while loop that would keep checking if buttons were hit (basically when a button was hit, a static int would change and stuff would occur). However this just causes the droid to freeze up (thus far anyway) and also not refresh. So please someone tell me there is some way I can have my method pause until a button is pressed? I also need to know the proper way to use invalidate() so that my textviews, pictureviews and such can be updated as the methods change them.
