Android :: Activity Still Lagging When Run Stuff In Service And Handler.post Method / Do This Correctly?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm confused why is my activity still lagging, I use remote service that has few methods and each has its own work like download stuff, process data, compare stuff, etc... It will run in background and update data at selected intervals and notify user of changes over notify system.

The reason why remote service, because I will eventually add a widget, and service needs to stay running even if android kills the activity, so I unbind it on each onPause().
But as far I understand that part doesn't cause my issue.

But back to my problem... so my is Activity still lagging when I run stuff in service and handler.post method.

here is the code...

Also I wanted to add progressDialog to be updated in updateLayer(...) through Activity is a listener to this service, but thats not working well. Whats the best way to update progressDialog? Ever listener, handler, intent, or what?

So how do I do this correctly?

Service Doesn't Stop When Asked To Stop

Aug 2, 2012

Okay when user presses log out button what's supposed to happen is:

Code:
stopService(myIntent);
unbindService(mConnection);
mIsBound = false;

I need to shut down the service on background.Except the service restarts itself over and over again! Even if I kill the program from task manager the service restarts itself. Other programs aren't using the service. when I uninstalled the program the foreground program information popped up indicating it was STILL there(albeit this I solved by rebooting phone).

When user says he's finished with the program 'least he can expect is for the program to stay down rather than keep eating battery by acquiring GPS signal and sending them to server. The program is not intended to be "once you log in you need to Uninstall me and reboot phone to get rid of me!" type of program!

Android :: Stop Service Only When There Are No Other Activities In App Running

Mar 13, 2010

Is there a way I can test if there are any other activities in my app still alive? I am looking to stop a service in an onDestroy method, but only want to do this if there are no other activities from my app still alive on the stack.

I have the call stop the service in the main activity's onDestroy() method. This works perfect EXCEPT that if a user launches my app, then launches a few activities in my app, then hits the home screen and RELAUNCHES my app, they will subvert my order and the main activity will now be above other activities of my app. From this state, if they hit the back button and 'back out' of my home screen they will trigger the onDestroy() method and kill the service even though there are other activities open on the stack. I want to avoid this by stopping the service ONLY if I am sure there are no other activities of mine open on the stack.

Android :: Force Service To Stop After Fixed Time?

Oct 14, 2010

I have a service which runs in the background when the user starts using my app. I am using it to do some posts to our server. I always close my service by calling stopSelf as soon as the posts have been made or failed.

But I recently observed two times that my service did not stop. I saw that in the running services in settings on my device that it has been sitting there for over a few hours.

So I was trying to see if I can alternatively set a timer using which I can force the service to stop after a few minutes no matter what.

Android :: How To Stop Service Method Of Calling Activity Class?

Jul 2, 2010

I am trying to call my service class's stopService() method from my activity. But I don't know how to access stopservice method from my activity class. I have the below code but its not working. This is HomeScreen class:
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);
enablecheck = (CheckBox)findViewById(R.id.enablecheck);
enablecheck.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new OnCheckedChangeListener(){
@Override
public void onCheckedChanged(CompoundButton buttonView, boolean isChecked) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
if(enablecheck.isChecked()){
startService(new Intent(HomeScreen.this, AutoService.class));
} else {
stopService(new Intent(HomeScreen.this, AutoService.class));
} } });
}
This is Service Class:
public class AutoService extends Service {
private static final String TAG = "AutoService";
private Timer timer;
private TimerTask task;
@Override
public IBinder onBind(Intent intent) {
return null;
} @Override
public void onCreate() {
Toast.makeText(this, "Auto Service Created", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
Log.d(TAG, "onCreate");
int delay = 5000; // delay for 5 sec.
int period = 5000; // repeat every sec.
timer = new Timer();
timer.scheduleAtFixedRate(task = new TimerTask(){
public void run() {
System.out.println("done");
} }, delay, period);
}
@Override
public boolean stopService(Intent name) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
timer.cancel();
task.cancel();
return super.stopService(name);
} }

Android :: How To Stop Service Started By BindService() With Bind_auto_create Option

Nov 18, 2010

I start service by using:

private ServiceConnection _serviceConnection = new ServiceConnection() {...}
bindService(new Intent(this, MainService.class), _serviceConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE);

I want to 'restart' the service. (Let's not argue why I want to do that)
I do that by:

unbindService(_serviceConnection);
// Do some initialization on service
bindService(new Intent(this, MainService.class), _serviceConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE);

I noticed service doesn't die(onDestroy doesn't run) until I call next bindService();
So some static initialization I did on service got cleared by onDestroy() implementation.

Question: How do you make sure unbindService() will stop service (run onDestory()),
so that I could do initialization after and re-run bindService()?

Android :: Failure To Connect Camera Service

Mar 11, 2010

I'm trying to write a basic camera app. The problem that I am facing is that it works fine in emulator but on the phone (Nexus one) it fails.

The point of failure is the very first call, i.e. Camera.open(). It fails on the phone saying "Failed to connect to camera service". Any idea what could be wrong? (BTW, I am calling this from my activity's onCreate funtion itself, could that be an issue?)

For the information, I do have the necessary Camera permissions specified in my manifest xml file.

Android :: Fail To Connect Camera Service On G1

Nov 16, 2009

I apologize in advance for this long post, but it's necessary to show what is happening.

I've been working on an app that works on the 1.6 emulator, but bombs on my G1.

Here is the Photographer activity:

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

And here is where this activity gets called from:

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

Having trouble pasting the relevant portions of AndroidManifest.xml, but I have permissions for Camera:

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

Here's the Photographer part:

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

Also set for testing on G1:

android:debuggable="true"

and working off of 1.6:

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" />

All this works on a 1.6 emulator, but when I run this on the G1, LogCat shows:

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

And /data/anr/traces.txt shows:

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

It sounds like the problem is a timeout issue, but I am at a loss as to where I should be looking ....

Motorola Droid :: GTalk Service Starting All By Itself / Stop It?

Nov 23, 2009

So sometimes I'll go into my contacts and notice that some of them have the green ball lit up telling me that they are online in gtalk. Now I am not signed onto gtalk... but yet somehow I see that in my running services that GTalkService is running.

I can only assume that its eating away battery trying to see how is online and not. I certainly don't need this info unless I wish to go online myself... in which case I would actually go into the gtalk app.

ANyways, obviously i've been killing it in the running services, but it just comes back all on its own. ANy idea why or how to stop it?
