Android :: Scrolling List In Home Screen Widget

Jun 8, 2010

I am trying to teach myself the basics of Android dev. At the moment I am experimenting with home screen widgets. I would like to create a simple widget that lists all my bookmarks. Somewhere in my googling I read that ListView is not usable in a widget. What's the best way to display a scrolling list in a widget?

Android : EditText Items In A Scrolling List Lose Their Changes When Scrolled Off Screen

Jun 14, 2010

I have a long scrolling list of EditText items created by a SimpleCursorAdapter and prepopulated with values from an SQLite database. I make this by: cursor = db.rawQuery("SELECT _id, criterion, localweight, globalweight FROM " + dbTableName + " ORDER BY criterion", null); startManagingCursor(cursor); mAdapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(this, R.layout.weight_edit_items, cursor, new String[]{"criterion","localweight","globalweight"}, new int[]{R.id.criterion_edit, R.id.localweight_edit, R.id.globalweight_edit}); is.setListAdapter(mAdapter); The scrolling list is several emulator screens long. The items display OK - scrolling through them shows that each has the correct value from the database. I can make an edit change to any of the EditTexts and the new text is accepted and displayed in the box. if I then scroll the list far enough to take the edited item off the screen, when I scroll back to look at it again its value has returned to what it was before I made the changes, ie. my edits have been lost. In trying to sort this out, I've done a getText to look at what's in the EditText after I've done my edits (and before a scroll) and getText returns the original text, even though the EditText is displaying my new text. It seems that the EditText has only accepted my edits superficially and they haven't been bound to the EditText, meaning they get dropped when scrolled off the screen. Can anyone please tell me what's going on here and what I need to do to force the EditText to retain its edits?

HTC Incredible :: Home Screen Is Scrolling Automatically

Sep 22, 2010

I'm afraid to bring this up as I suspect I might be headed for a replacement phone,For the last week or so, I've noticed my phone seems to be scrolling to the left automatically.The home screen will scroll as well as if I'm in the market for example and trying to enter a search term, the blinking cursor will move to the left. It's more of an annoyance than anything else.The phone still works great, but I'm worried that it might turn into something bigger.

Android :: Home Screen Widget Size In Normal Screen And Largest Screen

Mar 31, 2010

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?

Samsung Vibrant :: Freezing Bloatware Make Home Screen Scrolling Smoother

Oct 21, 2010

Rooted my replacement Vibrant but didn't wanna remove the bloatware right away in case future froyo required it. So, I tried just freezing the apps with Titanium. This makes sure they never start up when you turn your phone on and they are removed from the app drawer. You just unfreeze them whenever you want. Anyway, it makes the app drawer/homescreen scrolling a lot smoother.

Motorola CLIQ : Whenever Reply To Message Off The Home Screen Widget - Automatically Defaults To Home Number For That Contact

Feb 21, 2010

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).

Android :: Home Screen Widget Size For Large Screen Or Hdpi?

Mar 30, 2010

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?

Android :: Coming Calendar Items List On Home Screen?

Apr 26, 2010

I have been considering a new phone since my 3rd iPhone suffered it's demise and is no longer under warranty (1st Apple update bricked, 2nd stopped functioning, 3rd touch screen has gone wonky). So I have a choice to buy a new iPhone (or refurb) or go Android.

So far I have been impressed by the Android that my co-workers have. Seems very response, seems very snappy, seems pretty polished. I do have a couple questions: Is there a way to get a home screen of the droid to list out the next coming calendar items? I miss this feature from the BB and WiMo sets. Same with emails.

Android :: Sleep Widget For Home Screen

Jun 29, 2010

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.

Android :: RSS Application With Home Screen Widget?

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.

Android :: Home Screen Widget Graphics

Sep 17, 2010

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)?

Android :: AudioManager Home-screen Widget

May 31, 2009

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.

Android :: Creating Home Screen Widget

Apr 16, 2010

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.

Android :: Direct Dial Widget From Home Screen

Sep 26, 2010

I've been looking for a widget that will allow me to direct dial (direct text a bonus!) from home screen. I've looked around online and there doesn't seem to be anything that suits me well. I tried making the "direct dial" shortcuts by long-pressing, but those icons are small and have a little "M" and image of Android which obscures the photo icon. I found the perfect app while searching for other stuff. I've attached the image to this post. Does anyone know what the app is that allows me to place those 2x1 icons onto the screen?

Android :: Dynamically Add View To Home Screen Widget?

Mar 5, 2010

I am writing a home screen widget. Is it possible to add a View, e.g. ImageView, to a home screen widget through RemoteViews? I want to generate the views for the home screen widget dynamically.

updateViews = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.widget_news);

updateViews.setTextViewText(R.id.widget_title, mTitle);

updateViews.setImageViewBitmap(R.id.widget_picture,
BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray(image, 0, image.length));

My code is like above. But we I call updateViews.addView(aView), my IDE didn't allow me to do that and give me an compile error.

Android :: Removing Widget From Home Screen When Uninstalled

Dec 7, 2009

When my application is uninstalled, the widget stays on the HOME screen and gives an error message "problem loading widget". How do I remove the widget when my application is uninstalled?Is there an attribute in the manifest that I am missing?I have tried asking on the Google Android groups, but they take so long to approve and then it get's lost with the 100's of other questions that are ask that get approved at the same time.I was sure that this would happen by default by the OS, but guess I was wrong.I am catching the "PACKAGE_ REMOVED" intent, and checking the "EXTRA_REPLACING" to make sure it's not a reinstall, but I don't know the actual code to use to actually remove the widget.
