I want to create a scrollable map and trigger different actions when the user touches a different areas. With iPhone, it was easy by putting buttons on top of the image. How do I do it in Android? I used a custom view to enable scrolling in both directions. Now how do I make different parts of the image trigger different events on click?
I need to display a pretty image of a map of Europe, and I want my app to, e.g. bring up a different activity, when the user clicks each country - each country on the map needs to have a different onClickListener (or equivalent). Essentially, I need to be able to call a different function when the user taps on France rather than Spain in an image such as this:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blank_map_of_Europe_cropped.svg How would I best go about this on Android?
i want to create a bitmap / image which has many images like "Collage" which has more then one images in a single picture. I have stored all my images in a grid view but now i want to create a single image from all those images. And even i want to make few images click able so what can be the road map to do this ? any sort of help / example will be helpful. search for a for collage image image in google . one can see what it is exactly.
I have compiled Android source code already (which I downloaded using GIT), and I am being editing the source code of an Application for testing on Emulator, each time I wanna see results I have to re-Compile the source code again using 'make' I am pretty sure that there is a way to partly-compile the image.
I'm developing an app for Android 2.1 upwards. I want to enable my users to select a profile picture within my app (I'm not using the contacts framework). The ideal solution would be to fire an intent that enables the user to select an image from the gallery, but if an appropriate image is not available then use the camera to take a picture (or vice-versa i.e. allow user to take picture but if they know they already have a suitable image already, let them drop into the gallery and pick said image). Currently I can do one or the other but not both.
If I go directly into camera mode using MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE then there is no option to drop into the gallery. If I go directly to the gallery using Intent.ACTION_PICK then I can pick an image but if I click the camera button (in top right hand corner of gallery) then a new camera intent is fired. So, any picture that is taken is not returned directly to my application. (Sure you can press the back button to drop back into the gallery and select image from there but this is an extra unnecessary step and is not at all intuitive). So is there a way to combine both or am I going to have to offer a menu to do one or the other from within my application? Seems like it would be a common use case, surely I'm missing something?
If you want the OP updated then PM me, I can't check this thread everyday.I think we could use this thread to keep track of 4G coverage as Sprint and Clear roll it out as well as rumored 4G spots. Here's a map and list of cities so far Clear has covered.
I'm getting started with OpenGL ES on Android and I'd looking to learn some techniques to have a game map larger than the visible area.I'm assuming I've somehow got to ensure that the system isn't rendering the entire scene, including what's outside of the visible area.I'm just not sure how I'd go about designing this.This is for simple 2D top-down tile based rendering. No real 3D except what's inherent in OpenGL ES itself.Would anyone be able to get me started on the right path? Are there options that might scale nicely when I decide to start tilting my perspective and doing 3D?
When my nephew is at my house, he likes to mess around with my HTC Desire. He usually plays games on my phone. Recently, he's been going into places in my phone that I don't want him to go in. My email, my contacts, and other files. Once, he even sent out a massive test to random people on my contact list. So, I banned him from playing with my phone until I find an app that blocks guest users from going through parts of my phone that I don't want them too.
I'm noticing some grumblings of people getting 4G signals in cities/towns other than the official map says.I figured we could keep track of those places for everybody.So, where all are you getting a 4G signal that's not "official"?
whenever i'm at my friends house and his house is pretty much a dead zone for signal my Inc. seems to restart of turn off and turn right back on. It only happens at his house and i was wondering if it was because of an option to turn off in low signal areas to save battery.
I use http://stackoverflow.com/questions/541966/android-how-do-i-do-a-lazy-load-of-images-in-listview/3068012#3068012 to load images in a ListView and a GridView. It works but the images are loaded form bpttom to top. How to fix that?
Bonus Question: Can I use a loading animation in a image view while the real image is loaded? Right now it's just a default image.
Just got my sprint hero last week. I noticed that while talking on the phone for longer than 5 minutes the phone seems to get extremely hot. In particular the speaker in the front and where the camera is in the back. The heat generated is really intense and is really uncomfortable after a certain amount of time. What I want to know is anybody else having this issue?
I noticed some small scratches on the chrome-painted headphone jack today. I assume it's just a chrome paint and would probably wear off with even the slightest effort. But I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if anyone has ever tried to polish something like that with any luck.
Q: What map areas are available Offline with Google Maps 6.9.0 for Android?
Background: With Google Maps 6.9.0 it is possible to make certain maps areas available offline. As for Europe, this seems to be dependant upon where you attempt to make this happen. Most of Croatia (except Zagreb) seems to be unavailable, same goes for most of Italy except major cities.
I kind a miss pin messaging on a blackberry is there social areas for Google talk? I lost a lot of friends coming from blackberry to android and they don't like using Google talk. And there is no way I am going back to blackberry.
I have never had any problems at home with either my trusty unlocked N95 or Orange Sony Ericsson T610 (remember them?) so I had no qualms over ordering a nice shiny (dark brown) HTC Desire.
3G coverage is a bit iffy in the area as I'm right on the border of an excellent to good area so I never expected to have super fast data over the air, but I have wifi locally for that anyway.
So you can imagine my disappointment when the first call with the mobile from home cut off quite suddenly. A retry to reconnect failed with a no service message and no signal strength. I then spent the next hour playing around with the settings turning off wifi, data, setting the phone to 3G only (no chance) and then GSM only.
When the phone was working and making a call the audio was not clean and very digital. There was also a chance that mid call you would be cut off for no reason. When it wasn't playing ball at all the signal strength varied from three bars down to zero without moving the phone. Sometimes upon initiating the call it came back immediately with no signal and cutting the call off. Picking the phone up from sitting on the side in sleep mode you were usually presented with a no service message.
Orange were excellent and immediately replaced the phone, a courier arriving at 6:15pm upon reporting the problem at 8:30am that morning. Unfortunately the replacement was exactly the same.
Even worse, my place of work is in a designated poor reception area. There are a number of us on Orange as it is the only network that can at a pinch be picked up inside. My Desire...no signal at all. Moving to a window seat got me two bars but the phone refused to connect or hold a call. The only time it did calling 150 sounded like I was listening to a recording of a Darlek. A Nokia 5300 on Orange alongside was nice and clear, with very good tone by comparison.
By chance another member of staff also had recently signed up with Orange on a Desire (500mins, unlim texts, 500Mb, free phone, 20). In a back to back test both phones were the same. We even tried swapping SIMs. Luckily for him he has no problems with reception when at home so is quite happy with the Desire.
Contacting Orange again I did not get much further. Talking to technical support they were not much help and suggested that they did not warrant the phone to work inside the building and as I could make a continuous call outside then they did not class the phone at fault. This included my problems at home in what is termed an excellent coverage area! When I pointed out that two other phones I owned did work in the very same location I was told that mobile designs differ and positions of antennas vary considerably.
Frustrated I decided the only course of action was to use my right to cancel within 7 days as it was apparent that I was not going to be able to resolve the issue. Even last night it performed perfectly for a couple of calls and then failed miserably an hour later.
As a gadget I was smitten. Even as I handed the package over to the Post Master today I was inwardly screaming �GIVE IT BACK!� Unfortunately I need to be able to make calls on it when I want, not when it wants.
I have only seen a couple of other members note a similar problem on these forums but I have noticed a large number of Nexus problems that sound very similar. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced this or do you all live in 5/5 coverage areas?
I just got my Captivate's screen replaced at Dr Phonez. Fast service great people. but now on right side of the screen is not responding to input, the So The letters O,P,L the delete key, and the search icon can not be used. any ideas what may cause this? can it be fixed, I contacted the repair people but, I'm just trying to see if anyone here knows of anything.
Anyone else in the 4G areas receiving poor download speeds? I have run the speedtest app on multiple occasions and in different areas of Houston and my usual results are 800kb/s download and 1.1 mb/s upload. Only one time did I crack the 1 mb/s download speed and it was by a large margin (2.7 mb/s).
So I know it's usually best to place your phone in airplane mode when your phone doesn't have signal; however, are there any alternatives to this if you're in an area that constantly gives no reception? I live in the first floor apartment and I'm guessing the materials of the building completely kill my cell signal because I barely ever have more than one bar of signal if any signal at all. For example, my cell standby is usually about 50-55% time without signal during a given day.
I'm wondering if there is another setting or perhaps an app that will save some battery.
I have a Verizon brand car charger but have never had the need to use it until this weekend when I traveled from NJ to VT for skiing. I had the navigation and pandora going the entire trip with the charger pluged in. However when I got there and unplugged the battery was almost completely dead.
Does the car charger not supply enough power to charge and run the droid with all the data and gps usage going?
Also the area where I was staying had very poor coverage and once the droid was charged it lost its charge very quickly. should I turn off sync in areas of poor coverage?
I noticed something odd. I have a listview with custom BaseAdapter, and getView() inflates a layout. On 1.6 SDK (I've been developing on a G1), if I set android:clickable="true" on the layout, then the item is NOT clickable (but otherwise the item is clickable). Is this the correct behavior? It seems backwards to me. Furthermore, no matter now matter how i set android:clickable for the same layouts using 2.2 SDK (run using emulator), the layout always is clickable... eh? I'm really bothered by this.
