I tried to change the font on Kyocera Rise with Font Installer, after it was complete it required to reboot but now its on boot loop. When i go to Android System Recovery the bottom says E:cannot load volume /misc!
I have had androids for over two years now and am getting more and more concerned every time I download an app and seeing that it wants to READ my SMS message and Contacts.
Is there a way I can disable reading of SMS messages or any one of the other permissions by specific apps, or all apps?
Are we living in a world where any "joe schmo" can upload an app the to the app store and wait for those inadvertent downloads and collect all your personal information, and that's after all the time we spend protecting our identity and personal details?
This is my first post. I've had a Moto Droid since day one, and I just love it. It is without a doubt better than any phone that I've had over the years, and that includes the iPhone, BB, etc.
However, there are 2 things that I don't understand - Font size and a spell checker. It is imposiible to read the small font size in emails or text messages.
1. Why has there not been an app to either change the font size or be able to zoom in? Picasy has incorporated multi-touch for zooming, so I've to assume that its doable! Why not have the same in an email client.
2. Why is there not an email client out there that allows for spell checking? There are many such apps for the BB! I am a terrible speller.
I am not complaining, I just want to understand the limitations from a developers prospective, as I am sure these isuues will eventually be addressed.
For Style and Thems defination, CSS is considered to be a better standard...(as it has seen many revisions and widely used already in the web areas).. Any reason, why Android using XML approach as opposed to CSS.. Are there any plans of support of CSS too in future..
I want to enable different themes in my app. Some elements need "special" variations, like, for example, a headline TextView. Lets say for the example, in theme A, I want the headline yellow on black, in theme B red on white, while the default TextView uses black on white and vice versa.
Now, I can style the default TextView pretty easy by using <item name="android:textViewStyle"> with a different TextView style in each Theme style.
But how can I do it with the headline? As far as I know, I can use style="..." in the layout XML. But there, I can only use an item style like "headlineForBlack", which would ignore the current theme, while I'd rather need something like "style 'headline' for the current theme".
Where can I find default styles for my widgets? Let me give you an example. In the Contacts application, when adding a new contact, at the very bottom there are two buttons that have a particular background. I have traced that to here: http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/packages/apps/Contacts.git;... and it would seem that that background is achieved by using style="@android:style/ButtonBar" on a LinearLayout. From what I understand, this is a system-wide theme default for button bars. However, what I am searching for is not a ButtonBar, but similar, so I tried searching for this ButtonBar in the documentation, hoping to find other similar styles I could use. I *thought* I would find it in R.style:[url]
I'm supposed to develop an app which behave like that: The User starts the app and can select between different configurations. Depending on the selection there are different colors, drawables and strings (e.g. urls for webservice-calls) to display. All the code-stuff is the same.
My first intention to do so was themes.... - is it possible to include somehow strings in themes? - what shall I do with styles which are referenced in some layout-xml (which are the same for all configs) and should use different colors. can't define colors or styles multiple times and don't want to change that manually (when user selects by code).
In an Android application I am writing, the styling for my various TextView elements is defined in an xml resource. I would like enable the user to change certain styles such as android:typeface using a PreferenceActivity. Is there a way to modify a style resource programmatically such that all associated widgets will update correctly? If not, must I manually select all widgets by id and change their styling?
I've got a text style defined in styles.xml. I'm trying to reference it from a layout. When I reference from the layout, it causes an exception upon inflation. If I use the style from java code, it works fine. Setting the individual styles on the TextView works fine too:
In the ApiDemos, there is a view example called Gallery1 which declares a custom style in attrs.xml.I want to do the same thing for my widgets, but using a different namespace. However, as soon as I replace the android: namespace with something else,Unable to find attribute? Why does it look for an attribute I am about to declare? Isn't the point of this file to be able to name your own custom attributes?It's interesting to note that it works if you do not supply a custom namespace, but just an attribute name.
I was wondering if its possible to set multiple styles for different pieces of text inside a TextView. For instance, I am setting the text as follows:
Now, is it possible to have a different style for each text element? I mean bold for line1, normal for word1 and so on...
I found this http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/faq/commontasks.html#selectingtext:
Get our EditText object. EditText vw = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.text);
Set the EditText's text. vw.setText("Italic, highlighted, bold.");
If this were just a TextView, we could do: vw.setText("Italic, highlighted, bold.", TextView.BufferType.SPANNABLE); to force it to use Spannable storage so styles can be attached. Or we could specify that in the XML.
Get the EditText's internal text storage. Spannable str = vw.getText();
Create our span sections, and assign a format to each.
But it uses position numbers inside the text. Is there a cleaner way to do this?
Currently my ListView is filling up with the given String but I wanted to alternate some styles on the ListView items. Something weird is happening (I'm surely missing something obvious); The ListView Index is not fixed and the styles are not alternating as supposed. My Code is the following:
In my Android application I've hidden the default title bar, introduced a TabView and added my own titlebar under that TabView's tabs. At the moment, I'm using the ?android:attr/windowTitleStyle style which makes my new titlebar look gray and gradient. It looks pretty good, but my screens are looking pretty grayscale. I'd like to spice things up a bit by making this titlebar a different color gradient.
What am I looking at here? Creating my own image and using it? The ?android:attr/windowTitleStyle style seems to expand depending on the height of your custom titlebar; so I'm not sure it's actually a single image.
I've attempted to throw a LinearLayout over it with a bit of translucency (ex: making the color #800000FF), but the gradient style I have behind this LinearLayout disappears.
Per my answer down below, I've figured out that I can create an XML file that defines a gradient and use that. It works fine inside a LinearLayout (titlebar_gradient) I have on my layout. However, it is not working on the outer-most LinearLayout (background_gradient). Could someone tell me why? As I understand it, the ListView should be transparent...

Is it possible to style a single, say, TextView in Android with multiple alternating styles, colors, and sizes? Think inline HTML or CSS but in the Android world. As an extreme, to demonstrate the point, let's say I wanted to have a word "CIRCUS" with each letter a being different color. Do I have to create 6 TextViews for this or can this be done in one?
