Android : Way To Hide Application's Icon From Main Menu?

Jun 24, 2010

I want to hide my application icon from main menu at the run time. I believe that a filter with category Launcher in the application's manifest file is responsible for the application's presence in the main menu. Is there any way to change the category at run time? or any other way to hide the icon from main menu?

Android :: How To Hide Application Icon From Desktop?

Jul 6, 2010

I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="xyz.games.pacman.controller" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".PacmanGame" android:label="@string/app_name" android:screenOrientation="portrait"> <intent-filter>
<action android:name="pacman.intent.action.Launch" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<receiver android:name="xyz.games.pacman.network.MessageListener">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="xyz.games.pacman.controller.BROADCAST" />
</intent-filter> </receiver> </application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" /> </manifest>

I already read this question:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator
But if I just remove the line
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.

Android :: Android - Can't Find Launcher Icon In Menu When Exit Application

Oct 31, 2010

I use a file browser to locate the APK, it installs successful and I can run it OK (when clicking "run" after install completes) However, if I then exit the application, I'm unable to see a launcher for it on my apps menu (where I would expect it, like other apps I've created) At the moment, every time I want to run the app, I first have to re-install it so I can access it, surely there must be a better way?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.jameselsey"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0"
>
<application android:icon="@drawable/globe" android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar">..................

Android :: Main Menu Folder Like Organization App

May 3, 2010

I am looking for an application that would let me organize my main Android menu using folders or groups of icons. Preferably in a similar way iPhone OS 4 does it but I'm not picky and anything that would help me to sort out the cluster of programs I use would be appreciated. I only look for two features in this application:

1. That it organizes in groups (under one icon) or folders applications in Android main menu (and not on the main screens with widgets).

2. That it was free as there's no paid apps at the moment in the Market where I live.So, if anyone could help me or know of an application like that I'd appreciate all the help!

Android :: Optimal Activity Stack Order For A Main Menu Button?

Jun 2, 2010

I'm developing an app that starts with a main menu, and then continues through three different steps (activities) to a final activity where the task is marked complete. On this last activity, i have several additional options (add note, share, etc..) and i also have a return to main menu button.

My question is.. how do i stack the activities so that calling finish() on the final activity will return back to the first activity launched? i am currently just starting the new activity via an intent, so pressing back on this screen doesn't return me to home as i would like.

General :: How To Hide Menu Items

Sep 5, 2013

I've got this piece of code from an xml in my settings.apk (SecSettings actually) that contains tutorials on motion settings.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/motion_tutorial_settings_title" android:key="parent"
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<Preference android:title="@string/turn_over_title" android:key="turn_over" android:summary="@string/turn_over_summary" />

[Code] ......

In there, all the red parts contain tutorials on settings that don't actually work on my device, and for OCD sake, I don't want them appearing in my settings because of it. But simply cutting them out of that file will make the settings app crash whenever i open that menu

So question is: is there a way to hide these settings without impairing their functions?
