Android :: Android ProgressDialog Setting / Custom View Instead Of Message

Aug 30, 2010

In ProgressDialog's documentation it says:"A dialog showing a progress indicator and an optional text message or view. Only a text message or a view can be used at the same time."I've gotten it working beautifully with a message, but I want to use a custom view instead - a message with a cancel button. But calling setView() on the ProgressDialog seemingly has no effect - it shows the progress bar in the dialog but nothing else. I've tried it with just a TextView with the text "hello", but it doesn't show up.

HTC Incredible :: How To Set Setting Number Of Alerts For Calendar Reminder?

Jun 28, 2010

I have my Incredible set up to synchronize with my work's exchange server. I have a ton of meetings, and I rely upon the phone's 10-minute reminder to play an alert sound before each meeting. This is very handy. What I don't like is that there is no way to set the frequency (i.e., the repeat) for the audible calendar event reminders. It seems like they will just keep going off forever every 5 or 10 minutes, even after the meeting has started, until I hunt my phone down, turn it on, slide the screen lock down, slide the notification area down, select the reminder, and select "Dismiss". And then when my next meeting comes up again, same issue. It was driving me crazy, to the point that I simply turned off the reminder notifications entirely. Is there any way I can tell this phone, "When there is a meeting in ten minutes, please play exactly 3 audible reminder alerts: 10 minutes before, 5 minutes before, and when the meeting time has started.

Aug 19, 2010

A couple days ago i noticed my phone was silent, which is pretty unusual.I decided to check and see if i had any messages, hit the power button, and saw no little message icon waiting for me. I figured no one had texted me so i moved on. About a half hour later i checked again only this time went in to the messages app thingie and had three unread messages, all of which had come up within the last thirty minutes.Ive been checking it more often now and it does vibrate, but the little icon doesnt stay up long/at all. Any idea what im doing wrong? Its getting kinda annoying not knowing if i have a message or something.

Android :: Setting A Custom App For Car Dock?

Nov 2, 2010

This seems like an obvious thing, but I can't find any way to do it.When I put my phone in the car dock, instead of auto-launching the official "car dock" application, I want to launch an app of my own choosing. (in this case vlingo)I can find various apps that specifically replace the car dock app, but that's not what I want, I want to use vlingo (which doesn't seem to have that option by default)Just to be clear, I don't want an app that gives me an icon I can click to launch vlingo, that would defeat the purpose as I can already click the icon on my home screen to launch it if I want.So how can I set what program launches when I drop it in the car dock?

General :: Setting Ringtones For Text Message Notifications

Feb 5, 2012

Samsung double time and Motorola.

How do we set a text message ringtone? When we text, all we get is a goofy little chime and the phones vibrate. I'll never hear that thing in my purse.I went to settings>notifications and set a soundbite I want to use after transferring it to the media>notifications folder, and when I get e-mails, it worked. But not for texting.

Also, what forum do I use for the double time? What is rooting, and do we need to do it? We got the phones through AT&T and they work fine so far. Also, we have wifi at home- does that still count against our 3g plan when we're using that to access the market while trying to figure this out?

Samsung Fascinate :: Setting Custom Wallpaper

Sep 10, 2010

I just purchased a fascinate today and it's pretty solid, however I noticed that when I try to set a custom picture for the background, it won't let me select the whole picture and it zooms in ridiculously too much. Now, I've tried almost everything, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me?Oh, if you have the fascinate, download handscent for messaging. I had a blackberry before the fascinate and it's similar to the crunch sms for blackberry. It's convenient because it allows you to customize the length of the vibrations and led lights, but the fascinate doesn't seem to have led light capability. It also allows you to customize the bubbles a well as the colors per contact and all that. Definitely something to look into.

HTC Desire :: Message Alert Icon Shows Message - But No Message

May 26, 2010

I've been having a problem with my desire home screen (in particular the sms icon) and I'm wondering if anyone else knows how to fix it.

Recently my messages icon has been showing the little "1" in a green circle indicating I have an unread message. Problem is, I've gone through every list of messages I have on the device and there are no messages I haven't read and the "1" stays there. The only ways I've found to get rid of it are to either delete the icon and then put it back or to use Advance Task Killer and kill messages application. I'm not using any fancy apps for messages, just the default one.

My email counter is always perfect, this only seems to affect my sms. Also, my girlfriend told me she sent me a message a few days ago, but I never received it. Not sure if that's a happy coincidence, or if the phone got the message, is telling me I haven't read it, but isn't displaying it for me to see. All the other messages from her are plainly visible.
