Android :: Customize The Searchable.xml Layout?

Jul 25, 2010

I was the Android Developer article on Search: and was wondering if I could add other UI Elements to the searchable.xml file?

Here is what I want to do:


I wan to provide the gallery as a way to specify what category to search in. Is this possible? If it is, how and where do I access the the user selection for this component? If not, how else might I implement giving a choice to the user to search more specifically?

How do I deal with this?

Android : Searchable Directory Of Apps

Jan 14, 2010

A quick search didn't turn up anything about this so I thought I'd let you all know.Android Zoom (to whom I'm not affiliated) is a great way to search for apps outside of the apps marketplace. Unlike the native web site, you can search it.

Android :: Alternative Of Iphone's Searchable List?

May 6, 2010

In iPhone, they have got an option of creating such a list which gives them ability to jump to a particular character. see the pic attached

Do we have any such thing in Android?

I can setTextFilterEnabled(true) but that requires the keyboard to be present, while perhaps there now way to implicitly show keyboard on the device as we have in the emulator.

I have tried setFastScrollEnabled(true) it is good, but doesn't let you jump to a particular character.

Android :: Different Hint Strings For Searchable Activities?

Oct 29, 2010

I am supporting search in my app, I'd like to display a unique hint in the search box depending on what activity is being viewed.

To that end, I have a two different searchable.xml files in my xml folder:


When I reference searchable.xml, everything works as expected. The second searchable xml file has the same contents as the first, but this does not work:


Pressing the search key does not display the search box. If I just reference the first searchable instead, it works fine:


Again, both have the same content. It looks like there is a dependency on the name "searchable.xml" within android?

If we're not allowed to have searchables named anything but searchable.xml, how do we specify different hint strings for different activities?

For example:

Android :: Searchable Dictionary Example - Update Search Bar

Sep 18, 2009

For those who are familiar with the search bar this would be a quick answer (hopefully). If you look @ the searchable dictionary example ( SearchableDictionary/index.html) it uses a content provider to populate suggestions. That works great however when I use the navigation keys to focus on certain suggestions this does not update my current search string. And also how is it possible that instead of launching the search straight away, when a person clicks on a suggestion it only replaces the current search query. An example may help better understand the question.

Press Search Use keyboard to enter the letter 'a' in the search box The suggestions "apple" "altogether" "apricot" are shown

I use the down navigation key to get to" apricot", however the text in the search box is still just "a", I want it to become "apricot"

And also when I press apricot on the suggestion I dont want it to launch the intent but rather just replace the text in search box to the text selected, and only actually launch the intent when the user clicks the search button/enter key.

I'm sure its just a value I need to set somewhere but I cant seem to find it in the documentation.

Android :: How To Get Rid If Intermediary Page In Searchable Dictionary-Like App

Jul 27, 2010

I am working on a search app and since I am a beginner, I decided to start from the searchable dictionary sample, which is quite similar to what I'm trying to achieve. Got it to work, but I have a problem: the sample loads a blank page initially, telling the user to press on the search button to start performing a search. Once search is pressed, a new page loads with a search field and button on top, allowing the user to start searching for stuff.

What I want to do is get rid of that intermediary page, so that the search field and button are loaded from the beginning, on the very first screen the app loads when started. Any ideas on how to do this? Detailed instructions/examples would be greatly appreciated, as I am a beginner in Android programming.

Android :: Searchable Activity's Intent.getAction() Null?

Apr 25, 2010

I've followed the SearchManager documentation yet am still having trouble making one of my app's activities searchable. From my activity, the Search dialog appears, I enter a query, hit search, my activity reopens, then I see this in the log:


It appears to me that everything is fine up until the last three lines. The "NI" lines are getIntent().toString(), getIntent().getAction(), and getIntent().hasExtra(SearchManager.QUERY) respectively.

ActivityManager appears to be starting my activity with the correct action. Then when my activity starts, it contains no action!? What am I doing wrong?

The relevant portion of my manifest is:

HTC Incredible :: Contact Is No Longer Listed Or Searchable Under People

Sep 13, 2010

I want to use the Favorites App to make it easier to call frequently used numbers. However, I discovered that if I, for instance, put my best friend's cell phone number as a favorite icon I can no longer find his contact to add his home number to a favorites icon. The app seems to allow for only one favorite icon per contact. I am sure I am doing something wrong and there must be a way to have two favorite icons for the same contact but different phone numbers such as home and cell.In addition, sometimes when I add a contact to the Favorites app, the contact is no longer listed or searchable under People. Weird, no?

Android :: Loading Google Maps Data Into Searchable Data Structure

Mar 2, 2010

For my CS bachelors I am doing a Senior project using android and google maps.My vision was to do a (relatively) simple Dijkstra shortest path using google maps road data. I was going to add elevation change along with 2D distance. I am doing well playing with maps in android but I am completely stumped trying to access google maps data in any sort of searchable form.How would I go about accessing the data for say intersections of roads (lat/long) in a particular area?There has to be a way to pull that data in some sort of tree form. It seems like it may be possible with kml?Any pointers would be awesome.I want my paths to follow roads but If i cant this is going to turn into an orienteering application fairly fast.

Android :: Unable To Open Both Main.xml Files / From Layout & Layout-land At Same Time?

Aug 14, 2010

While developing for Android, I am unable to open more than one main.xml file in an Eclipse editor at a time.Each time I open one, it simply replaces the editor (tab) of the first main.xml with the new one, instead of opening a new tab - even if the contents of the existing tab were unsaved.Even stranger, I can open multiple main.xml files from different projects with no problems.This only happens when they're within the same project.
