Android : Skip Validation Of Single File In Eclipse / Need To Custom Compiling?
Oct 15, 2010
I've followed the steps given in the Android Developer Blog to generate a build.xml for building releases for an Android Application. I need to do a custom compiling so I have overwritten the target compile of the ant_rules_r3.xml as it is said in the generated build.xml.
The script works fine and generates the apk, but the problem is that Eclipse shows an error because it cannot find targets -resource-src, -aidl and -pre-compile (which are loaded when executing the script but are not really present on the build.xml). As there are these errors I cannot work with the project in Eclipse.
How can I skip the validation of this single file in Eclipse?
I had the thought of checking for tampering with the apk by embedding a couple of checks against it's size once installed on the device.I was just a bit concerned that maybe the size would change dependent on the device (e.g. different FS format or whatever).
Who is responsible for validation of xml file when editing xml in Android layout editor? For example, when I set a negtive valut to android:maxLength of TextView, it will be marked in red. ADT or aapt is responsible for check?Your help will be appreciated.
The last couple of weeks, my app is very slow compiling changes when the resources are modified in the project. Doesn't matter if it's strings or layout. Sometimes it takes as long as 30 seconds for the changes to apply. Compiling just the .java files are as fast as ever.
I used to have slowdowns after I having Eclipse open for the whole day, but restarting Eclipse always fixed that. Not this time. All my Eclipse and Android software is up-to-date. Has anyone experience this or have any suggestion as to what could be causing this and a fix? It's really cutting into my productivity.
While compiling android project in eclipse 3.4.2, am getting The project cannot be built until the build path errors are resolved. I got a temporary solution from the blog http://www.scottdstrader.com/blog/ether_archives/000921.html
The resolution was to force a resave of the selected projects (and their .classpath files): Open the project properties Select Java Build Path > Libraries Add a new, arbitrary library (to be deleted later) > OK Wait for the workspace to refresh (or force a refresh of the project) The error(s) will go away Remove the dummy library
The only other references I could find were to make minor alterations of contents of the .classpath file.
As part of the Android application I am developing in eclipse, I need to combine two packages from different projects into a single project. I tried copying the files in the package of the second project under the src folder of the first folder and copied other files required for second package into the res folder of the first project. But the auto-generated Java files i.e R.java doesn't get updated on copying. I tried right clicking on the project and clicking on Android Tools -> Fix Project Properties. But nothing changed.
Some classes are NOT PUBLIC like android.os.ServiceManager, android.view.IWindowManager, etc, they are implemented in the mobile devices, but not present in the SDK .jar. This is because these classes are private APIs . now please tell me is there any way like compiling source code or importing private class file into android.jar so that i can use this private APIs.
Seems that for some reason I cant put the 2.2 OTA on my X...It comes back with an error that mentions the build.prop when doing the Checking Version step...
Verifying current system assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/build.prop","76f714f20045407075a08d1f8634dbadf6891 66c5","448243fe4bdffdd0818e81286821889880d37752") E:Error in /cache/Blur_Version.1.13.604.MB810.Verizon.en.US.zip (Status 7) Installation aborted.
So I'm guessing that the changes I made in the build.prop file are stopping the update...I put the original back, but notice the file date is different (Yestedays date) than what the original should be...
Wondering if I can extract the original build.prop file from the SBF and put that down without doing the whole reflash...
If not, anyone have a stock 2.1 build.prop file they can Email me so I dont have to SBF and loose everything I have setup now?
I'm writing a bitmap editor. Each document consists of about 3 bitmap layers and documents are, at the moment, saved as a custom file with a .bme extension. These files can be converted to standard jpg/png files by rendering each bitmap on top of one bitmap and saving the latter. I need some way for the user to be able to select .bme files they've created already. Is there anything in Android that can make this easier for me? The only option I can see is to write an activity that creates a list view and write a list adapter that looks for .bme files on disk i.e. a copy of the standard "Media Gallery" app that works for my .bme files. The list adapter will either have to generate a thumbnail preview of the image to show to the user or I'll have to package such a preview in the .bme file when they're created. This is the only option I can think of. I thought I'd ask in case there is more Android friendly way of doing this. For example, can you add custom file support to the "Media Gallery" app?
I want to know how to make a validation on EditText.That is ,I am having one EditText that edit text should has to accept only numaric values,If other than numaric value is typed by user then it should show some alert message "pls type the numaric value...."
Is any function is avilable to find the entered text is particular type..how to handle this situation.if possible give code snippet.
Is it possible to tell Eclipse to use some extra arguments for aapt (-0 in specific)?I have been looking for past couple of hours and the best hack I came up with was to create a wrapper for the aapt tool to inject the argument to the command line. The trouble with this approach is that whenever I should lose that wrapper, then I'll be quietly introducing a bug into my application.
I am trying to update Android SDK on Windows XP. For that I open Android SDK and ADV manager and try to get available updates. The HTTPS SSL error appears. Then I go to settings, uncheck the "force https...", then add new site "http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/ repository.xml" (the same as default but with HTTP protocol) then again try to get available updates.
After this step I get the weird error:
XML verification failed for http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml. Error: cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'sdk:sdk- repository'. Failed to fetch URL http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml, reason: Unknown
Does anybody know what is the reason of this error? This happens on all SDKs I have on my PC: Android 1.6_r1 and 2.0_r3
Every app I make starts out with a number of common base classes, interfaces, utility classes and a basic package structure that has been working for me. Is there a way for me to set up a project template in Eclipse that will give me all of the basic Android project stuff PLUS a bunch of custom packages, classes and interfaces? I guess I could just put all of this stuff into one or more libraries as opposed to creating a whole project template, so if you have a preferred approach or information/links/etc on how to do any of the above, please share (I'm relatively inexperienced with Eclipse, so the more detail the better).
I am trying out the HelloWorld example. I get an error when I want to create the strings.xml file: when I open the already default string.xml file in the project I get the error: An error has occurred. See error log for more details. java.lang.NullPointerException
The file looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <resources> <string name="app_name">Android the best but this sux</string> <string name="hello">Hello all this is a android app</string> </resources>
I've created a new xml file in my layouts directory using eclipse's "new->xml file" wizard and i want to be able to use the built in layout editor, however, this file is not recognized as an android layout file by the editor, but rather as an ordinary file. everything compiles and runs okay, but i wanted to know how to do it better next time.
I am newb To Android. I just to check out few applications in my Desktop and have downloaded some sample applications. However, they are in the format .apk. Please let me know the procedure to import this file into Eclipse which helps me to run the application.
In Visual Studio, I can obtain a succinct list of public methods/members exposed in a class for which I do not have the source (i.e. bundled inside a DLL) by pressing F12 (GoToDefinition).
Similarly, I am learning the Android API - in Eclipse. Jumping to an Android framework method definition produces decompilation output which is not intuitive to read, and is very verbose. To mimic results like Visual Studio, I am considering several options:
How can I format the decompilation output to be 'cleaner' - I have looked through Eclipse's preferences menus and have not found a way to do this.
How do I 'add corresponding source files' once Google provides it, so that jumping to definition yields the actual definition?
Is there a plugin that does this already? I looked into Jadclipse, but that project has not been updated in several years, and is still a decompiler.
I was using Netbeans to write my Android applications for a few weeks now (i was used to NB). Then I decided to give a chance to Eclipse, since its the official recommended (with tools existing) development environment. Now, that I moved my code to Eclipse, it keeps complaining in the manifest file.
Eclipse keeps crashing when I make too many changes to an android xml layout file. After making a certain amount of changes I get a "Problem Occurred - Save Failed - No More handles" error message box, and then eclipse crashes. This is on
Eclipse Galileo Version 3.5.1 Build id: M20090917-0800
Is there a new version of eclipse that does not have this crash issue?
I have Eclipse Juno and I'm working on an app with that.
The main activity will have a scrollable menu that takes you to all the other activities.
So the general structure/outline right now:[HIGH]Relative Layout ImageView (header logo type thing) ListView (the actual scrollable menu)[/HIGH]Here's the problem though... I can't find any simple list tutorials. I can easily make a single line list work but I need to make a two line list and one that is static, not dynamic and no examples are out there for that. It's like if you want to make a 2 line list, you can only learn how to do it in the most code-heavy ridiculous way possible.
Essentially what I am looking for with the list is this: Item one: Centred, bold, non selectable title (Resources)
- Item two-??: two line list items, click-able to a new activity, title of the section on first line, description on the second line.
- Item ??: Centred, bold, non selectable title (Tools)
- Item ??-??: two line list items, click-able to a new activity, title of the section on first line, description on the second line.
Nothing dynamic that is ever going to change, no super complex wonkey calculations, just to simply have the data set in stone (preferably via XML) and to call it into the list.
I experimented with some of the other list views and no matter what I did, I could get, via editing the resources and NOT using Java, more that one item on a single line but it wouldn't format it properly according to the layout I guess because I haven't got the ID correct or whatever I don't know.
I mean, all the examples I've seen for a 2 line list are extraordinarily over-coded and just bloated. I mean I have a website I am still working on in C#/ASP.net that has far more complex things in it with half the code that I've seen for the examples of the two line lists.
I tried on my own to figure it out (I am decent with C# and vaguely familiar with Java, self taught, and programming for some other systems like Python, again all self-taught), but like ALL coding references, they're organised by the actual code you implement (that you don't know) instead of by what you want it to do (so you have to search the whole code base to find something that you don't know what it's called but know what it does). >:C
I just had the odd case that my Android project for some reason would not properly rebuild in Eclipse (v3.5/Galileo). Occasionally that happen and so I did the usual Project => Clean... as I always do in such cases. But this time I now have the odd effect that almost all files show bugs, and looking closer it's that the compiler can't find the R-file (which is indeed missing from the gen subtree). How do I force eclipse to rebuild that file?
Whenever i try to open the layout.xml file in eclipse..eclipse crashes and exits without any messages.. However if i try to open the xml file without using the layout editor of ADT plugin everything is fine....it will open as an editable file..the problem started only after i updated the latest version of ADT...before that everything was working fione.
I'm using a default Eclipse project file generated for my Android application, and I want to keep it in a targets/ directory (along with other eclipse-specific files) in order to better organize my project structure (I also plan on adding a target for NetBeans).
When I make a new project the .java file is not generated. I can run the project, but it does not run in the emulator or anything. It did use to work before then it stop working. I tried deleting the folder and all project files. After that I reinstalled everything but I am still having problems.
