Android :: Possible To Put Webview As Widget On Home Screen?Jan 13, 2010
I've been seeking a way to embed an html widget on home screen. Is it possible to do so without changing the Android framework?

This is more of an annoyance, but whenever I reply to a message off the home screen widget, it automatically defaults to the home number for that contact, instead of replying to the same (cell) number that it was sent from. If I go into the messaging app, it works as it should (replies to the same number).View 2 Replies View Related
I am designing a home screen widget. I ran this widget on a HTC Hero device, which has a screen of 320 pixels * 480 pixels with mdpi. It ran perfect on HTC Hero. The widget takes 3 cells * 2 cells space, i.e. 240 pixels * 200 pixels.Then I ran this widget on a Nexus One device, which has a screen of 480 pixels * 800 pixels, mdpi. Since Nexus One also is mdpi, so I though 240dip is equivalent to 240 pixels on Nexus One and 200dip is equivalent to 200 pixels on Nexus One, so the widget will not take 3 cells * 2 cells space on Nexus One device. To my surprise, when running on Nexus One device, the widget take exact 3 cells * 2 cells, about 360 pixels * 300 pixels, on Nexus One device.I am confused. The layout xml above specifies 240dip in width and 200dip in height for the widget, but why did it take 360 pixels * 300 pixels on Nexus One Device? What am I missing?View 2 Replies View Related

From Android widget screen guidelines,we know that, home screen has 4*4 cells, and in portrait orientation, each cell is 80 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. I think these are for baseline HVGA screen. How about for large screens and hdpi screens, do they still have 4*4 cells for widget and each cell in portrait orientation is still 80 pixels * 100 pixels?View 2 Replies View Related

Im still looking for a widget to put my Incredible to sleep without pushing the power button. I am using No lock for the ability to use the touchpad to turn on but I hate using the power button to turn it off and leaving the screen on, even for 30 seconds, has to be draining the battery. (I am constantly on/off/on/off the phone throughout the day.)
I would like something I can put on the home screen that when touched, puts the phone to sleep. This will help save my power button in the long run as well. Ive searched and cant find anything.
What's everybody using for an RSS app? I'm using NetaShare. I really like it, but it's lacking a home screen widget - I sorta wrote about it as part of my top 5 favorites, but I'm wondering if there might be something better that allows you to download and store RSS content on your phone and has a home screen widget.View 13 Replies View Related

HI took a look at the home screen widget design recently and I tried to deploy a simple widget with 4x1 portrait background provided in Widget.I tried it in HVGA emulator (screen size 320x480 or something) and on Nexus One (screen size 480x800) and the widget seems to be the same size with respect to other UI elements (search widget etc) on both devices. How is that possible when one screen is 320px wide and the other one is 480px? Is the graphics in png format being automatically resized somehow based on screen width? If so, is it better to create the home screen widget graphics to make it perfectly fit to HVGA screen with 320px or is it better to create the graphics to fit the largest screen width possible so it would shrink itself on smaller screens (based on assumption shrinking an image is always better than magnifying it)?View 2 Replies View Related

We just released our first widget to the market called AudioManager, it's available now and free to download to anyone who has cupcake already installed.AudioManager is a home-screen Widget that allows you to get live readings of your current volume levels on your Android phone (similar to your computer's "Volume Mixer").Tap on the screen and you can adjust the volume levels individually for the following streams: Alarm, music, notifications, ringer, system and voice call volume.The widget comes in two sizes, large (4x1) and small (2x1). The AudioManager Console is also available through your application launchpad in case you do not need the Widget on your screen but wish to access all volume streams from one place.Attached are a few screenshots, check it out and let us know. Only tested with Android's default home-screen, however, there are mixed reports of the widget working for aHome and dxTop with the latest versions.View 4 Replies View Related

I'm trying to create an icon/widget (1 cell x 1 cell) that can be placed on the home screen of android. The widget will look and act exactly like the other standard shortcuts in android. It will have an icon and under that a label, it will be selectable with the trackball (highlight able) it will be highlighted when it is selected / clicked. How do I go about creating this home screen widget? Do I have to create the widget myself using code/xml or is there some standard xml, style, theme, code that I can use to ensure that the widget will have the same style/theme as the other home screen widgets?

I've been looking for a widget that will allow me to direct dial (direct text a bonus!) from home screen. I've looked around online and there doesn't seem to be anything that suits me well. I tried making the "direct dial" shortcuts by long-pressing, but those icons are small and have a little "M" and image of Android which obscures the photo icon. I found the perfect app while searching for other stuff. I've attached the image to this post. Does anyone know what the app is that allows me to place those 2x1 icons onto the screen?View 6 Replies View Related

I am writing a home screen widget. Is it possible to add a View, e.g. ImageView, to a home screen widget through RemoteViews? I want to generate the views for the home screen widget dynamically.
updateViews = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.widget_news);
BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray(image, 0, image.length));
My code is like above. But we I call updateViews.addView(aView), my IDE didn't allow me to do that and give me an compile error.
This would apply to any widget. It just so happens that on most screens (all but my home screen) I have the "Beautify Smaller Home" or whatever its called at the very top. I like easily seeing the time from each screen. And I think it looks nice. Beautiful might be a stretch... but I understand the marketing.But the hypothetical question still applies. If I had the "music" widget or the "messaging" widget on EVERY page. Would that widget use more battery than just one instance? In other words, does EACH INSTANCE of the widget poll for data? Or does the process just poll for data and then each widget just repaints itself on its respective screen as appropriate? I need to know! I'm wondering if I disable "beautiful home" from all but one screens if my battery life will improve.What do you think? Are there any hard-core techies out there that can help me figure it out?View 1 Replies View Related
When my application is uninstalled, the widget stays on the HOME screen and gives an error message "problem loading widget". How do I remove the widget when my application is uninstalled?Is there an attribute in the manifest that I am missing?I have tried asking on the Google Android groups, but they take so long to approve and then it get's lost with the 100's of other questions that are ask that get approved at the same time.I was sure that this would happen by default by the OS, but guess I was wrong.I am catching the "PACKAGE_ REMOVED" intent, and checking the "EXTRA_REPLACING" to make sure it's not a reinstall, but I don't know the actual code to use to actually remove the widget.View 1 Replies View Related

I am having a difficult time figuring out a way to read the sensor data from a home screen widget. I can successfully create a home screen widget that extends AppWidgetProvider. I can successfully create a stand-alone application that reads sensor data (extends Activity). What seems to be impossble (for me) is combining them into a home screen widget that reads sensor data. The classes that you have to use, like SensorManager, SensorListener all seem to require an Activity which the AppWidgetProdiver doesnt have. I have also tried keeping my sensor data reader in a separate class that extends Activity and then instantiating that class in my widget. Makes sense in my head but no data is ever read from the sensors.View 6 Replies View Related
