Android :: Android - Keeping Options Menu Open After User Clicks On Menu Item

Nov 19, 2010

I have an Options menu up and running in my Android application and I've overridden the onCreateOptionsMenu, onOptionsItemSelected and onPrepareOptionsMenu methods to customize the menu a little. My question is related to keeping the Options menu open after the user clicks on a menu item. Basically, I'd like to be able to hide the menu until the user clicks on the device menu key. Once the user clicks on this key, I'd like to be able to hold the menu in place regardless of how many times the user clicks on menu items. If the user wants to hide the Options menu, they'd just need to click on the device menu key again. Is this type of interaction supported (or even advisable).

I'm trying to change the default color for the options menu which is white. I want a black background for every item on the options menu.

Android :: Set Options Menu Up - Only 2 Buttons Per Row?

Aug 4, 2010

I was trying to set up my options menu so that there would be 2 buttons on the 1st and 2nd row and then 1 button on the 3rd row. Here is the code I was trying to use but I'm guessing groupID argument isn't what I thought it was.

menu.add(1, MENU_NAME, 1, "by Name");
menu.add(1, MENU_NUMBER, 2, "by Number");
menu.add(2, MENU_POSITION, 1, "by Position");
menu.add(2, MENU_COLLEGE, 2, "by College");
menu.add(3, MENU_UPDATE, 1, "Update Roster");

Maybe this is solved somehow with the XML Layout but I'm not really good with the layouts ;( So I managed to not get too far that way either.

Android :: Options Menu With SurfaceView And ListView

Jul 7, 2010

In my application, I have extended SurfaceView and ListView. I create a LinearLayout as below

mainForm = new LinearLayout(this); mainForm.setOrientation(LinearLayout.VERTICAL); mainForm.setLayoutParams(new LinearLayout.LayoutParams( LinearLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT));

I then add the SurfaceView and ListView to the mainForm and then setContentView(mainForm);

I also override onPrepareOptionsMenu and call menu.clear() and then dynamically create menus each time the menu button is pressed by the user. The application loads fine and the SurfaceView works fine as I directly draw images to it in a sleep loop. The ListView displays items and is desined to refreshed with new items. The options menu also displays once as well................................

Android :: Alter MenuItem On The Options Menu?

Nov 16, 2010

I have an Options Menu on my Activity with an MenuItem "Start". When this MenuItem is selected I would like to alter the Menu so it contains a MenuItem "Stop". And finally when "Stop" is selected, I would like to alter back to "Start". Here is parts of my code that isn't working.

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
MenuInflater inflater = getMenuInflater();
menu.removeItem(R.id.stop);
inflater.inflate(R.menu.mymenu, menu);

Android :: Resize Options Menu - Get Icons Centered?

May 2, 2010

I created a basic options menu, here an example of creating an element of me menu: menu.add(0, MENU_BACKWARD, 0, "").setIcon(R.drawable.btn_backward);

As you can see I don't want to show any text in this menu, just an icon ! But when the menu is showed, there is a "ugly" blank under the icon (the text is supposed to be there) and I want to avoid this. A least if it's possible to center the icon the options menus, it will be great.

Android :: Setting Up POP Server Email - Cannot Select Options

Jul 5, 2010

Seems like it should be pretty straightforward. In the main menu I chose "email" and added my pop servers URL and the next line asks for the password which I entered however it will not let me highlight either the "manual set up" or the "next" icons in a gray bar just below the password box. Tried it several times now. Certainly a Droid should be able to handle pop server mail??

Android :: Add To Menu Using AddIntent Options Providing For A Single Activity

Oct 7, 2010

I want to use addIntentOptions to drive my menus when ever possible. This seems the cleanest way to provide them. Rather than explicitly detailing activities, simply ask for a menu listing all the activities which are available for my data item.So I'm trying to put together a context menu for a List View. It works great. Only problem is that I have an activity that has two intents that consume my data type, and only the first shows up.The activity in question in Android Manifest.xml
<activity android:name=".ui.MyActivity" android:label="The title">
<intent-filter android:label="First context label">
<action android:name="com.sample.action.FIRST_ACTION" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.ALTERNATIVE" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.SELECTED_ALTERNATIVE" />
<data android:scheme="myscheme" />
</intent-filter>
<intent-filter android:label="Second context label">
<action android:name="com.sample.action.SECOND_ACTION" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.ALTERNATIVE" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.SELECTED_ALTERNATIVE" />
<data android:scheme="myscheme" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
