Android :: Unable To Start Activity - Load Home Screen Or Show Notification During Calls

Dec 18, 2009

Has anyone been successful showing a notification, starting an activity, or loading the home screen *during* a call on the Droid? All three of these actions can be done with the emulator running 2.0, but will not run from the Droid. I don't receive any type of notification that these actions fail on the Droid. Although, every action works when a call is *not* active. Missed calls during a call *do* show up in the notification bar, so I am hoping there is a way.

I understand that the notification bar can not be accessed by users during calls, but it would be nice if a notification could at least be delivered. I also understand the security and usability concerns of displaying a window or action during phone calls. Although, there are a lot of users who would like actionable functionality based on calls.

Android :: Home Button - Does Not Show The Last Activity

Jan 23, 2010

I'm experiencing kind of strange behavior of my application after hard Home button is pressed. When you press Home, everything is OK - my app goes to the background, showing Home screen. But if you try to choose my app in the main menu or in the list of last tasks it behaves like it was not started before and does not show the last activity you were on - it just starts from scratch, namely, shows the splash screen and starts next corresponding activities. Moreover, old activities of this app remain on the activities stack, and previous instance of the app is not terminated - so if you press Back for a few times you'll just run into those activities which were undoubtedly started during the previous session of work with my app. Splash screen activity is filtered by "android.intent.action.MAIN" filter and "android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" category. The strange thing is that all of that happens despite the fact that I do not intercept any Back key hits, or override any onPause or onResume methods. What's happening contradicts with my understanding of Android app lifecycle - I was sure that when you hit Home an app just goes to the background, and when you choose it in the menu later - it just unwinds and does not start anew. (Of course, unless stuff like that is stated in the app manifest or corresponding methods are overridden or something else). I also checked it for some other lifecycle events - such as changing orientation or flipping hard keyboard out - and none of those led to such strange results. It appears that the problem occurs when you try to start the app from main menu or menu of last applications.

Android :: Java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable To Start Activity ComponentInfo

Nov 8, 2010

I wrote an android app and so far it works perfect except for on one phone. It is the exact phone that I have with 2.2 on both phones and mine works perfect. The other phone is getting force close all the time but only when opening an activity that queries my image DB and tries to show a gallery. Every activity crashes in the same place, the viewimages. At first I thought it was the intent that was doing it but one of the activitys does not have the intent, it opens the images below the gallery. This works on the emulator, on my moto droid and on a few other different droids. Here is the code for the gallery and my bitmap decoder.

The error is below that.

When I'm the university library I've to put the cellphone in silent mode and often I end up loosing calls&SMS while I'm working on my laptop.

So it would be very nice if there was a way to notify me with incoming calls (maybe on windows 7 task bar) while my cellphone is connected to the pc via USB.

Does anyone know a way to achieve this?

Android :: Launch The Same Activity From Widget With Different Extras - Prevent Same Instance Show Up After Returned From HOME Button?

Nov 5, 2010

I have a widget that contains 4 buttons to show 4 stock prices, each of them will launch into the same activity Quote.class to show stock details. In onUpdate(), it will set up the pendingIntent with extras with stock symbol. After I hit button A, it goes to Quote activity that shows stock A. Then I hit the BACK button to the homescreen, Quote activity calls onDestroy() and when I hit button B, stock B will show properly. However, when i hit HOME button after it shows stock A, the Quote activity only calls onStop without calling onDestroy(), then as i hit button B, it will call onStart() and it shows the same instance that shows stock A.

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

Originally I thought adding a flag in the Intent should solve this problem. But I have tried
i.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_MULTIPLE_TASK or FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK or FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_HISTORY), none of them makes any difference.

So is there any ways to make it work? How can i remove the history stack from HOME button? How can I call onCreate in Quote activity and get new extras when i hit button B?

Android :: Handling Screen Orientation Change During Activity Start

Mar 12, 2010

I'm trying to find a way to properly handle setting up an activity where its orientation is determined from data in the intent that launched it. This is for a game where the user can choose levels, some of which are int portrait orientation and some are landscape orientation. The problem I'm facing is that setRequestedOrientation(ActivityInfo.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_LANDSCAPE) doesn't take effect until the activity is fully loaded. This is a problem for me because I do some loading and image processing during startup, which I'd like to only have to do once.

Currently, if the user chose a landscape level:

the activity starts onCreate(), defaulting to portrait discovers from analysing its launching Intent that it should be in landscape orientation continues regardless all the way to onResume(), loading information and performing other setup tasks at this point setRequestedOrientation kicks in so the application runs through onPause() to onDestroy() it then again starts up from onCreate() and runs to onResume() repeating the setup from earlier

Is there a way to avoid that and have it not perform the loading twice? For example, ideally, the activity would know before even onCreate was called whether it should be landscape or portrait depending on some property of the launching intent, but unless I've missed something that isn't possible. I've managed to hack together a way to avoid repeating the loading by checking a boolean before the time-consuming loading steps, but that doesn't seem like the right way of doing it. I imagine I could override onSaveInstanceState, but that would require a lot of additional coding. Is there a simple way to do this?

Solution:

As per Daniel's answer, this was actually quite easy to fix. I just needed to make a few small changes. In my 'menu' Activity, where the player would choose which level to play, I just had to add an if/else check to choose which class would be started by my Intent. This was done with a simple int representing portrait or landscape, determined when the player selected a level. I then created a second class extending my 'GameLogic' class; this is the class which contained most of the code for the game itself, rather than the menus, instructions, etc.

public class GameLandscape extends GameLogic{}

Literally that simple and completely empty. That way it inherited all the code from my previous activity where I had already coded it to handle things differently depending on the orientation. Lastly I just had to add a line to the manifest stating that GameLandscape would always run in landscape, and GameLogic would always run in portrait.

Samsung Moment :: Home Screen Slow To Load (Launcher Pro Beta)

Jul 19, 2010

Would this be a ROM issue? Maybe an issue with Launcher Pro Beta? When I hit my home screen button, it takes a few seconds for my shortcuts and widgets to load. I really like LPB but am not liking how long it's taking to load. I set it as my only launcher in my ROM that I made so I can't go into another launcher and see if it's slow, does anyone think that could be the culprit?

Android :: Possible To Load A Layout XML At Runtime And Load Into Activity?

Sep 4, 2010

Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?

In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.

What should be the best design you would recommend?

HTC Droid Eris :: Screen Cracked - Unable To Use Menu Or Home Buttons And Entire Left Part Of Screen And More - Keyboard Lag

Feb 23, 2010

So through a weird assortment of events i managed to crack the screen on my Eris. But this is the trippy part, I didnt break the glass but the touch sensors underneath. So now i am unable to use the menu or home buttons and the entire left part of my screen and more. I am unable to unlock my device in anyway that i know(menu button, the slider). Is there any other way to unlock it? I now have 11 unread texts and 4 voicemails that I desperately want to view. Oh and I know some of you won't be happy about what I'm about to say but.... I took the leap to the moto droid. I had the chance to get it on a 1 year because I didnt get insurance and I went for it. I will really miss my Eris but the keyboard lag was just killing me.
