Android :: Launch Activity Without UI?

Apr 24, 2010

Is it in any way possible to launch an activity from the main function without having a UI? i.e. is there a way to create a sort of "wrapper" around another activity, i.e. by launching the main activity, it takes you to another activity automatically. If that is not possible, is there a way to remove the main activity from the stack so that clicking the back button does not take you to a blank UI?
Here's an example of what I'm trying to do:

public class WrapperActivity extends Activity {

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
final Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_DIAL, Uri.parse("tel:555-1212"));

I'm trying to do is open a very simple application that is supposed to do nothing but display an imageView above a textView. The application worked fine until I added the imageView so I'm assuming my problem has something to do with that.

Here is the code:


Here is my layout -> main.xml

Android :: Launch The Apps Twice Or More?

Apr 20, 2010

The problem is the apps will launch twice or more when I apply the following steps: 1. launch the app A (1 time) 2. rotate the screen, (the app A will launch again, now the app A launch twice) 3. press return button (my expected result is that the app A will keep running, luckily, I can do that.) 4. launch the app A ( there will be one more app A running) So, in this case, there are 3 app A launching at the same time. But my expected result is just have one and only one app A launch.

Android :: Does The Dalvik File Format - .dx - Support More Instructions Than Java .class File

Apr 17, 2010

Is there anything the Dalvik VM supports (in terms of bytecode) which is not used currently because the .class files don't have it?

As an example, if people would write their own Source-to-DX converter for their functional language XYZ, would they be able to implement e. g. full tail calls although the .class file does support tail calls only under certain circumstances?

Android :: Is It Efficient To Use Text File Or XML File To Store Static Data

Jul 31, 2009

I have some reference data in a text file (~5MB) that I want to use with might android application.The file is of the format:
1|a|This is line 1a
1|b|This is line 1b
2|a|This is line 2a
2|b|This is line 2b
2|c|This is line 2c

What I want to know is the most efficient way (less memory, fast, size etc.) to use this file within my application.

a.) Should I save the file as a raw resource and open and read the whole file whenever I need a certain line.
b.) Should I convert the file to XML and use XPath to query the file when ever I need to look up a value
<!--sample XML -->
<line number="1">
<entry name="a">This is line 1 a</entry>
c.) Should I just copy & paste the whole file as a static string array in the application and use that.
[EDIT] I will also need to search this file and jump to arbitrary keywords e.g. "line 1a".

Android :: Resize Large Bitmap File To Scaled Output File

Jul 26, 2010

I have a large bitmap (say 3888x2592) in a file. Now, I want to resize that bitmap to 800x533 and save it to another file.I normally would scale the bitmap by calling Bitmap.createBitmap method but it needs a source bitmap as the first argument, which I can't provide because loading the original image into a Bitmap object would of course exceed the memory (see here, for example).Is there a way to read a large image file with 10MP or more and save it to a new image file, resized to a specific new width and height, without getting an OutOfMemory exception?I also tried BitmapFactory.decodeFile(file, options) and setting the Options.outHeight and Options.outWidth values manually to 800 and 533, but it doesn't work that way.
