Android :: Eclipse Layout Editor Not Showing

Oct 29, 2009

Relative noob working with Eclipse and Android.I just switched from Windows XP to Mac (Snow Leopard) and I'm having a little trouble getting Eclipse up and running the way I like it.I installed the Android Mac SDK, but my layout editor isn't showing me a preview of the activity layout, it's just showing me the XML tree, even when I'm on the design tab.Is there something I need to do to enable the layout editor in eclipse?

Android :: Eclipse Layout Editor And Java 6

Feb 27, 2009

System config is MacOSX with default JDK 1.5.0_16. Eclipse 3.4 The problem is I have a project in workspace that has been developed under JDK 1.6.I don't really want to switch back to 1.5 ( i' would have to clean up a LOT of @Override ) but if i work with this project, after couple of rebuilds - eclipse layout editor not able to display preview. Work around i found so far open android project that is in compliance with Java 1.5. Close everything else and rebuild workspace. But it's kind of annoying to do it every time.

Android :: AutoCompleteTextView In Eclipse Layout Editor?

May 28, 2009

I'm porting an app of mine to work better with API 1.5, and I'm having problems with the layout files where I'm using an AutoCompleteTextView (and, naturally, MultiAutoCompleteTextView). Whenever I have them present in a layout, the graphical representation of the layout disappears, and "NullPointerException: null" replaces it. Is there any way I can view a widget such as this in the Eclipse editor? It definitely worked in the 1.1 SDK, otherwise I wouldn't have used them.

Android :: ClassCastException From Layout Editor In Eclipse's ADT Plugin

Aug 8, 2010

This is probably related to this question. I want to know if anyone else gets the same error as me and if there is a way to get around this. I did the following: Followed the instructions from this page. From the top, go to File -> Create a new project -> Android Project -> Create project from existing sample. Checked Android 2.2. From the drop-down menu picked SkeletonApp. Clicked finish. From the package explorer, went to SkeletonActivity -> res -> layout -> skeleton_activity.xml. In the tabs at the bottom of the editor area (editor area is the center of the screen) clicked on Layout. Then I got the error "ClassCastException: android.widget.EditText cannot be cast to andoid.text.ViewGroup". The full text of the error message is given below.

Android :: Eclipse Crashes When Invoke Layout Editor

Feb 27, 2010

I'm new to Android & Eclipse. I've downloaded Eclipse and the Android ADT and created an ultra-simple "Hello World" app (has only auto-generated .java and .xml files). Eclipse CRASHES (closes after a very brief pause) when I do the following: In Package Explorer, select AppName/res/layout/main.xml Press, or double-click, or 'Open With' then 'Android Layout Editor' (The app runs OK in the Android emulator) My configuration is:


Android Development Tools 0.9.5.v200911191123-20404 com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.feature.group
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers 1.2.2.20100216-1730 epp.package.java
Windows XP

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what's wrong with my configuration? Any suggestions on what to check? For any non-trivial app development I need to be able to use the Layout Editor. More ... I can select main.xml and Right-Click and 'Open With' any of: XML Editor, XML Schema Editor, Text Editor -- with no problem. The problem is limited to Android Layout Editor.

Android : Visual Editor For Eclipse With ADT Plugin?

However, whenever I click on main.xml at the left navigation tree layout folder, here is what I get. What I wish to get is a WYSIWYG editor.

Android :: Explanation Of ADT Layout Editor UI?

Apr 13, 2009

Is there an explanation of the ADT layout editor UI some place? I can't find anything on the Android web site about it. When I look at a layout in the design view, there are a number of fields at the top with labels like MCC, MNC, Lang, etc. I've noticed that I can change the contents of these fields, such as orientation, and it has an effect on the view. But a yellow warning triangle appears next to the field I've changed and the next time I open this view I see the unmodified field. For example, if I change to landscape orientation the view goes back to default next time. Is there documentation some place on what these fields mean and how they are supposed to be used?

Android : Disable Java Formatting In Eclipse Editor?

Jul 17, 2010

Is there a (simple) way to completely and utterly disable all Java formatting in the Eclipse editor?

That is an Eclipse question, but I appreciate your indulgence because this problem is slowly driving me insane. I am spending a lot of time fixing code to make it look good again after it gets mangled by the automatic formatting. I thought I had removed all formatting keyboard shortcuts, but I missed something because my code keeps getting changed. I suspect the culprit to be the SourceFormat menu option because that can be triggered by Alt-S-F which is very close to Alt-F- S, the File/Save command.

So a little finger slip and code mangled. Unfortunately, the mangling is not always done where I am looking (since it is applied to the entire file), so I don't always know to undo it. Is it possible to disable or remove a menu item?

Android :: ADT Plug In Layout Editor - Additional Device Configurations?

Sep 11, 2010

You know that layout editor in the Android ADT plugin that lets you design the layout for ADP1, ADP2 and Nexus One, has anyone created other device configurations? It requires device information such as the x-dpi and y-dpi, which can be difficult to find out. I'm just wondering if anybody has added more device configurations they're willing to share? Perhaps together we could compile a huge devices.xml containing many of the devices out there. I'm fully aware the layout editor has many faults and cannot be relied upon but it is sometimes useful to rapidly preview how the layout might look on a wide variety of devices without switching between emulators.

Android :: View A TabWidget In Layout Editor It Crashes - Buggy

Jun 6, 2010

It seems that Android is very buggy compared not only to the iPhone, but to pretty much any other software. It's not just minor bugs either - pretty much every developer will come across many serious bugs. Some examples:

- When you run the "sdk setup.exe", the very first thing that happens is that it informs you that it can't connect using https, so you have to change the options to use 'http' instead. This appears to be a bug in the .exe rather than any kind of user issue because the https url works fine in the browser and this error seems to affect everyone. Sure, it's trivial to work around (just do a google search and you figure it out in 5 seconds), but the user shouldn't have to do that. It makes it look unprofessional.

- When you view a TabWidget in the layout editor it crashes.

- Every time you run an app in the emulator, it starts off with the screen locked so you need to press the Menu key.

- Various socket bugs (or perhaps all the same bug) related to IOException not happening. Even something as simple as just trying to connect to a remote host that is not listening will cause it to hang instead of immediately returning an error.

All of these bugs have been logged for months (some by me, some by other people) with no indication of any fix.

At the moment I'm just using the emulator, but I'm wondering if the phones themselves are this buggy or if all the bugs are just in the development environment and emulator.

I am using eclipse 3.5 with the ADT plugin.when I view layout xml files, i get two tabs in the view the source code view and a graphical view.the graphical view almost never works for any of my layouts.it usually shows "NullPointerException: null" at the top and nothing else. when it does work, it often does not match what i get in the simulator or device.it seems like this thing simply is not ready for prime time; although the idea is very cool.has anyone else had much success with it?

Android :: Eclipse ClassCastException When Trying To Expand XML Layout

Jan 16, 2010

I am new to java, eclipse, and android development, so I may be missing something simple although I have checked basic stuff like spelling several times.

Because there is no number picker control (such as that used in the date picker) in the public Android SDK, the conventional wisdom is to "clone and own" the control that exists in the Android source.

In an attempt to do that, I have copied the code for NumberPicker into my project and its dependency, NumberPickerButton. I have also copied the supporting resources.

The problem I am having is that when I try to include the NumberPicker in a layout, the rendered version of the layout within Eclipse does not work.

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

Adding that tag causes the Layout view of the XML file to only show the following error.

ClassCastException: com.spencerandbrown.PatientTracker1.NumberPickerButton cannot be cast to com.spencerandbrown.PatientTracker1.NumberPickerButton

I have tried both the fully qualified name and the unqualified name and it makes no difference.

The strange thing is that the control works at run time, it just will not render in Eclipse.

Is there a solution for this issue? Am I just doing something wrong?

If necessary, I can include more code from my project to clarify.

If I reference the internal Android widget, it works fine in the Eclipse layout view, but it is clumsy to interact with that way and it might break in the future.

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

Here is the stack trace from Eclipse.

General :: Getting Eclipse Graphical Layout To Expand With Dual Scrollview

Mar 9, 2012

I am using Eclipse Helios Service Release 2 and the project target is 2.2.

I have a xml layout that has a HorizontalScrollView and ScrollView with a LinearLayout. For some reason unknown to me the graphical layout will not expand when I add objects that exceed the size of the default screen size.

I have other xml layout files that will expand when using a single scrollview type, however when using two of them nested together it does not work.

I have attempted to use ScrollView then HorizontalScrollView and reversed to see if it is a order of priority issue with Eclipse. However this does not work.

There appears to be nothing missing from the properties of the scrollviews between those that will expand and the one that wont.

Is there something I am missing? Or is it not possible to have two different scrollview types in one layout and still have a auto expanding graphical layout editor? I would rather not define a specific screen resolution that would allow me to see all objects; I want the app to be adaptable to any device screen size.

Android :: Eclipse Doesn't Recognize Style In Droid Layout Builder / Why Is So?

Nov 4, 2009

Since Android supports styles and it's good practice to use them (similar to CSS), I made a new style and applied it to 3 buttons.

The Layout builder in Eclipse did not register the changes and either broke (showed nothing) or didn't apply styles at all.

After running the app in the emulator, styles are correctly applied.

So is there something I'm missing or the Android plugin doesn't support styles?

HTC Desire :: Need Simple Text Editor

Sep 12, 2010

My Android Desire is a superb device and will do almost anything I want. Even cleans up around the house and makes coffee and feeds the cat. However, there is one simple thing I cannot get it to do: provide me with a simple text editor like Wordpad so that I can write little texts on the go. I've searched everywhere for this function. I cannot imagine that it is missing from the phone, it's so basic. When I search for "text" I get all sorts of stuff on writing "text" messages, i.e. SMS messages (the term "text" seems to have lost its original meaning and is now used almost exclusively to refer to SMS messages). Where is the Desire equivalent of Wordpad or Notepad or, better, Notepad++?

How To Permanently Save Editor Settings

Feb 3, 2012

I have been using Eclipse for a few weeks but for the life of me I cannot find a way to save some of the settings for the editors for JAVA and Android. By this I mean - save them so that from one project to another these settings remain the same without my having to go back into preferences and changing them each time:

1. Size of recently opened files list: 10
2. Displayed and saved tab width: 3
3. Insert spaces for tabs: ON
4. Show line numbers: ON
5. Set MY choice for Code Templates
6. Typing - Automatically close "Strings" - OFF
Parens, square & angle brackets - OFF
7. Automatically insert at correct Position - Semicolons - Off
Braces - ON

I have tried until I am blue in the face to do this to no avail.
