Android :: Toast Will Not Display In Emulator / How To Fix?
Ok, I've tried two examples of AlarmManager- one from the commonsware website, and one from the manning website. The code I am currently working with is from the manning website : [http://unlocking-android.googlecode.com/svn/chapter8/trunk/SimpleAlarm/] There are two classes, AlarmReceiver and GenerateAlarm. Anyone have any idea why the toast will not display in the emulator? I was thinking that it was because I am located in the Eastern Time Zone and it uses UTC, but I have fiddled with different things and none of them seem to work.

Android :: Display A Toast From An IntentService?
I have an IntentService that handles button callbacks from a widget. When the user presses a certain button, I want to display a Toast. I return from onHandleIntent almost immediately after doing Toast.show(), which in turn stops the service and kills its thread, which keeps the Toast from actually being displayed.
Can anyone suggest an easy way to get the Toast (or something similar) to display from an IntentService?
Android :: OnTap Display Toast Or Message
I looked for any information about onTap event processing for itemized overlays in this group. There is a lot of useful information but I could not find the answer to one question.
The tutorial by Mark Murphy on itemized overlays, http://androidguys.com/?p=1413
describes how to generate a Toast message whenever an onTap event occurs. In his case, the custom itemized overlay activity is included in the main activity. In my case, it is not. My custom itemized overlay activity is included in the application package as a public activity.
This means that the line Toast.makeText(NooYawk.this, items.get(i).getSnippet(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); will not work "as is".
I have had trouble in correctly identifying the context for the Toast. Attempts to use the main class' (the one calling the custom itemized overlay class) context have not worked. I would appreciate it if anyone could suggest how I could resolve this issue. Incorporating the custom itemized overlay class in the main class is not a desirable option.
Alternatively, I would appreciate any suggestions for generating a display of the title and/or snippet information for markers on a map.
The onTap event works fine (Log.i statements in the onTap method display the correct information for each marker tapped)

Android :: Pop-up Without Using Toast
I have a service that runs in the background. IŽd like to be able to show a message to the user when there is an incomming call. Atm iŽm using a Toast, because as far as I know it is the only way to display something regardless of the current activity the user is running. But I have seen apps that can show entire views on top of others activities. How can this be done?
Android :: Toast On Top Of ListView?
I have a listview in my Android Application. Now, when the user presses Next Button other contents will be loaded into the listview. What I want is that if there are no more contents available then there should be a toast displayed indicating that there are no more data available.
Say, for example I have a total of 55 data available and I am displaying only 30 of them in one listview. So, when the user presses Next for the first time next 25 records will be visible. If the user again presses the Next button then a toast should be displayed on top of the last listview that had last 25 records.
Currently I get an error as IndexOutOfBoundException : Invalid location 15 size is 1.
Android :: Popping Up Toast From A Thread
My user hits a button and kicks off a process that takes 3 steps in about 10 seconds total. I'd like to pop up Toast messages "Step 1", "Step 2", "Step 3", "Finished!" as the process progresses. I'm using the standard Java Thread interface to run the process in a thread and I've found that trying to pop up Toast from the thread causes an FC. What is the best way to report this kind of progress - step by step messages?

Android :: Toast - Can't Get It To Work In Eclipse?
I am slowly trying to figure out maps... I want to be able to click on a point and pop up a message. Toast seemed the way to go.

But I am seeing Eclipse tell me that the line is in error no matter what I do...
My code is below:

Android :: How To Create Toast From Background Operation?
what is a good way to signal an error from a thread that is not the UI thread and you don't know which activity/handler is currently active? Can I somehow get eleto the current UI thread? Can I somehow use the MainLooper from the application context?

Android :: Radio Button Selection Changes Toast
I was writing a simple test application. There are two radio buttons within the app. There id's are "radio_red" and "radio_blue". I wanted to create an onClickListener event that read the text associated to the button and then returned a basic "Right" or "Wrong" toast.So far no joy. Here is my code snippet. I've checked my "main.xml" and the text associated to the buttons are referneced correctly. I added trim to make sure of that. However, all that is ever returned in the toast is "none." What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any help.
Android :: Posting Toast From Worker To UI Thread
I was trying to post a toast notification in case something goes wrong in a worker thread. I do this by putting a handler.post(funcFailed) in the catch block where funcFailed it a runnable and simply called a function funcFailedshow()
funcFailedshow() is defined to be Toast.makeText(App.this,"Error in funcfailed", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
For some reason i cannot see the toast notification. Even if i replace App.this (app is the applications name) with a getApplicationContext() it does not work.
Android :: Posting Toast Message From A Thread
My application launches a thread to query the web for some data. I want to display a Toast message when nothing is found, but my application always crashes. I've tried using the application Context from within the thread, like so: Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "testttt", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show(); I've also tried creating a Runnable with the Toast call and calling runOnUiThread(runnable) from the Thread (the Toast call in this runnable uses the Activity as the first parameter). Does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this?
Android :: Make Toast Last For Longer Time?
Is there a way to make the Toast last for longer time? I have tried this code
Toast t = new Toast(this); View v = View.inflate(this, R.toast_layout, null); t.setView(v); t.setDuration(Toast.LENGTH_LONG); t.show(); t.show(); t.show();
By calling show() method more than once, I hoped this would give a similar effect to lasting for longer time with some flickering, but I didn't see any difference. Is there some limit to the number of times that show() method can be called on the same Toast? e.g. just once per toast instance and further calling has no effect?
Android :: Keep Toast From Building Up A Queue Of Messages?
How can I keep Toast from building up a queue of messages?
I'm working on a board game and I'm sending status messages back to the user with this wrapper function I created for Toast:
The problem is I've made the flow of game play so simple I can now play it so fast Toast messages queue up, even to the point where they continue to show on the desktop after I quit out of the game. t.cancel() doesn't seem to cancel out the previous message, anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
Android :: Toast Message Appear While My App Is Downloading Information
I would like to have a Toast Message appear while my app is downloading information but even if I put it before my code it doesn't appear until after the download has completed.
