HTC Desire :: Use Optical Trackpad To Move Cursor When Writing Text?

Aug 5, 2010

Can you use the optical trackpad to move the cursor when writing text? So if you realise you've gone wrong you don't have to place your finger in-between two letters. On my existing very old touch scree phone this is a big issue as i can never get the cursor exactly where i want Another trackpad question - what purpose does it have when browsing, does it highlight links allowing quick navigation without using the pinch and zoom?

Final track pad question- do you use it? The battery- with moderate to heavy use will it ALWAYS last a long day 7-11 for example? Hows the froyo update, is sense still as smooth as ever?

Motorola Droid :: Software Keyboard - Move Cursor Around Text

Nov 12, 2010

I use the hardware keyboard exclusively, but am wanting to use the software keyboard more, figuring that my next phone may only have that. My real problem is figuring out how to move the cursor around in the text. If I want to go back and edit using the hardware keyboard, I just use the d-pad to move back to the spot I need. How do I do that with the software keyboard? Am I forced to tap the screen (which never chooses where I want it, and I have to key pecking at it to get it in the right place)?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Move Phone Cursor To Different Locations In Text Editing?

Sep 1, 2010

Has anyone found an easy, reliable way to reposition the cursor so that you can modify text you've already written? The only suggestion I was given was to "swipe" the cursor over to where I wanted it, which turns into a series of moves that have the cursor jumping all over the place. Are there no equivalents to the "cursor arrows" that let you move the cursor up, right & left?

Does anyone have a better way?

When in the emulator they work as expected, you touch the edittext and the screen scrolls up so you can see the content. However when i try it on my droid inc the edittext is covered by the keyboard.

Android :: Setting Global Button And EditText Objects

Jun 26, 2010

I'm getting null pointer exceptions when I try to initialize Button and EditText objects in global scope, can't figure it out. I've commented out everything but the bare minimum for the app to display my layout, but this still causes a crash: private EditText addmoney = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.addmoney);

R.id.addmoney definitely, definitely exists. So what the heck? Is it impossible to declare EditText in global scope? I need to be able to call it from both onCreate and onPause in a class extending Activity, is there maybe another way I should be doing this

Android :: Move Cursor In On-screen Keyboard With External Keyboard

Nov 1, 2010

I am new in Android and i am working to make an on-screen keyboard which can be visitable via arrow(direction) keys of my external keyboard. I mean i wanna move left, right, up and down in the on-screen keyboard's UI (keys) with pressing arrow keys from my external(hardware) keyboard. The key that cursor is on should be focused, when i press an arrow key from my external keyboard the focused key should change and when i press "enter" from my external keyboard it should be operated.(written to the screen etc.) How can i make this? Is there any idea? How can i make virtual keyboard's keys visitable? It doesn't look like moving around a matrix of buttons.

Android :: Moving Cursor Adapter Cursor Creation To Background Thread

Mar 29, 2010

The structure of some of my activities is a simple ListView with a custom CursorAdapter. The cursor is created in onCreate() on the activity from a SQLite database. The problem is that querying the SQLite database can be quite slow at times with lots of data (and let's assume I've already optimized the sql query as much as possible). Because it occurs in onCreate() on the UI thread, I get ugly black screens when opening the activity, which sometimes turn into ANRs, on a slow phone like the G1. I want to load the cursor in a background and show "Loading.." on screen while doing so. I saw AsyncQueryHandler used extensively in the framework, but this seems a solution geared more towards Content Providers and not application-local SQLite databases. I then thought of trying to load the cursor in a background thread, but realize that this might be problematic, as the CursorAdapter should be instantiated in onCreate() and should take a cursor as a parameter. The latest thought I had was to instantiate an empty MatrixCursor in onCreate() and pass that to the cursor adapter, while kicking off a thread/TimerTask to query the database. Then, on database cursor load, call cursorAdapter.change Cursor to the properly filled cursor. This doesn't seem very elegant and seems quite wasteful, however.

Android :: Join ContentResolver Cursor With A Database Cursor

Mar 21, 2010

I get records from the system by quering a ContentResolver. I maintain the order of the items in the database. So I want to display the items in the order taken from my database.

How do I merge these two informations?

I am looking after an alternative way now. As what I ideally want is:

Get order of contacts by a custom order held in my database (this involves joining CR with my DB cursor, and doing an order by, later seams it's not possible with CursorJoiner) but there is more, if the join is not unique I want to sort by contact's name as last measure

Which is impossible using Cursor and Joiners, because of the missing feature of order bys, also I need to return a Cursor, as I will be using the in an ExpandableList

Also this translated to TSQL it would look like

select * from contactsdata
left join category on contactsdata.catid=category.id
order by category.pos asc, contact.display_name asc

So I am looking now after an alternative. I have in mind to load in a temporary DB table all data from CR, then do the query on the temporary table where I can join tables and do order bys? How does this sound to you?

Android :: To Make EditText Look Like TextView But Still Behave Like EditText

May 17, 2009

I want an EditText to look like TextView but still behave like EditText. I've tried applying TextView style to my EditText in my layout.xml file, like this:

CODE:............

But I get an error within xml editor: "Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'style' with value '@android:style/ Widget_TextView')." It is strange because @android:style/ Widget_TextView definitively exists - I double checked it in code via android.R.style.Widget_TextView. Another strange thing is that I don't get android:style offered in the xml editor while typing? There is android:id, android:text and everything else.. but not android:style?

I consider the hard way (making EditText look like TextView) to be: extending EditText and overriding it's onDraw method.

Every time I put a TextView before an EditText element in a LinearLayout, the EditText does not show. When I don't, it does.

Android :: Android - EditText And Button - When Click Button - Unfocus EditText And Hide Soft Keyboard

Jun 24, 2010

CODE:............

I have this at the top of my application. When the application starts, the EditText is orange highlighted and has a cursor in it; when the EditText is tapped, the soft keyboard pops up. The user uses it to type into the EditText.

However, when they click the Button, my onClick method fires and does everything it's supposed to, however the soft keyboard stays on screen and the EditText is still highlighted with its cursor.

I also have, at the top of the Button onclick: findViewById(R.id.name).clearFocus();

In spite of this, the EditText does not seem to clear its focus. How do I make the button actually act as if it is submitting the form?

Also, I do not transition to a different Activity on the click of the Button. I suppose that is the typical case, and probably the reason why they don't bother hiding the keyboard. However I want to keep the search box and button at the top of the screen, so I just dynamically fill and add views to the screen when the Button is pressed. How can I achieve my desired behavior?

Android :: Populate EditText Widget Text From Another EditText Widget Text

Jan 6, 2010

I am trying to populate the text of a second EditText widget with the text from the first EditText widget only when the second EditText widget receives focus, the second widget is not empty, and the first widget is not empty. When I run it and click into the second widget it does not populate. When I remove the third constraint ('etxt.getText ().toString().trim() == ""')) it works. so getText() on the second EditText widget is returning something even though the second widget has no initial value other then the text that is displayed via the hint attribute.

The SELECT_BY_LENGTH is defined this way: private static final String SELECT_BY_LENGTH = "select word._id, word.word from word where length(word.word) between ? and ? ";

And the count works perfectly but the cursor.move(1) always returns false. I've tried to get the column count and responds with the correct count and the column names map too. I mean that the method getColumnIndex works too but I can't get any data from the cursor. All such methods fail. Am I doin' something wrong? I'm using android 1.5.

Here is my code:

So, when I get the results from my Vector, I will get:

October 12, 2010
- Item Y

And I want:

Yes, I do have to change my Vector to support multiple items, but hopefully you get what issue I'm facing...
