Android :: Selector Resource Use A Color Defined In A Style?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm trying to use a color defined in a stlyle in a selector but it is causing a Resources$NotFoundException.

First I added a new attribute to attr.xml:

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

Then I defined that attr value in styles.xml:

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

Then I tried to use that attr in my selector definition:

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

Lastly, the activity uses the ThemeNoTitleBar style theme in the manifest.

I've also tried creating a color in colors.xml and having it use the new attr but that also fails.

I'm obviously missing something but am not sure what to do to fix it. My intent is to create multiple themes and have the selector use the color in the currently selected theme.

Android :: selector resource use a color defined in a style?

Android :: Not Able To Use New Resource Identifiers With TargetSdkVersion Defined In Manifest?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm developing an Android application that I'd like to be compatible with 1.5 (SDK version 4).

I'm testing the application on 2.2 (SDK version 8).

To do this, I'm including in the manifest file the line <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="8" />

I thought this would allow me to use the newest manifest elements and APIs, but I'm getting a compile error whenever I try to use them. For example, I try to define the element installLocation to allow the app to be installed on the SD card, but Eclipse gives me the error

No resource identifier found for attribute 'installLocation' in package 'android'

Is there something else I have to do to get this to work? If I can't get this to work, what benefit is defining targetSdkVersion?

Android :: 9-patches In - Selector - Drawable For Custom Button Style

Nov 28, 2009

I'm having a bit of a problem with a custom button style. I have the button states (9-patch drawables) set up in a <selector> drawable. The style I'm going for is a button that looks like it gets pushed down, i.e., you can see the front edge of the button until you press it. It works fine for the button itself, but the contents of the Button (or ImageButton) don't move when pressed, even though I have the 9-patch areas set up to move the content area for the depressed button states. It seems like it's keeping the same 9-patch areas no matter which image it's showing.

Here's an animated GIF to help make the problem a little clearer, since I'm awful at explaining things: http://www.crappytools.net/button_problem.gif The button moves when pressed, but the icon inside stays still. I played with the Draw 9-Patch utility, and it shows that the content area in the depressed image should be shifting downwards like intended.

Android :: Resource Not Found Errors For Images - Button Selector XML File

Jan 5, 2010

My 1.6 app works fine in both portrait and landscape modes on the default HVGA device. I'm now trying to support it on QVGA devices and am encountering build-time errors I don't understand. In my res/drawable-ldpi directory I have:

startstopin.png startstopout.png and a selector file
startstopbuttonimageselector.xml
which contains:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable-ldpi/startstopin" />
<!-- pressed --> <item android:drawable="@drawable-ldpi/startstopout" />
<!-- default --> </selector>

I've 'fixed project properties' and done a 'clean' build, to no avail. The error I get is:
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'drawable' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopin').
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'drawable' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopout').
I've tried adding a layout file in res/layout-small that explicitly references this selector file, but this triggers a similar build error and fails to address the original problem:
Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'src' with value '@drawable-ldpi/startstopbuttonimageselector').

Android :: Defined Color Under Res / Values Not Usable In Code

Jul 15, 2010

I defined a white color in mycolors.xml under res/values as below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
<color name="my_white">#ffffffff</color>
</resources>

In my code, I set the text color of a TextView as the white color I defined:

TextView myText = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.my_text);
myText.setTextColor(R.color.my_white);

But the text in the TextView turned out to be a black color. When I use @color/my_white in layout xml files, it works fine. I check the generate R.java, and see: public static final int my_white=0x7f070025;

Android :: ListView Selector Color ?

Jan 10, 2010

I have 2 questions regarding a ListView in Android:

How can I get the color of the listview's focused row ? I tried to use the ListView.getSelector() method, which according to its documentation should give me what I'm looking for, but it's giving me a Drawable object which I don't know how to retrieve the color from (if possible...).

How can I set the color of the listview's focused row ? Here I tried to use the setSelector() method on the listview, passing it a ColorDrawable object, but the result of doing it is that the whole background of the list view is painted in that color... and this is not what I wanted of course...

Android :: Selector On Background Color Of TextView

Aug 28, 2010

I'm attempting to change the background color of an Android TextView widget when the user touches it. I've created a selector for that purpose, which is stored in res/color/selector.xml and roughly looks like that:

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

The clickable attribute of the TextView is "true", in case that's of interest.

When I assign this selector to a TextView as android:background="@color/selector",

I'm getting the following exception at runtime: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(13130): Caused by: org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: Binary XML file line #6: <item> tag requires a 'drawable' attribute or child tag defining a drawable

When I change the attribute to drawable, it works, but the result is looking completely wrong because the IDs appear to be interpreted as image references instead of color references (as the "drawable" suggests).

What confuses me is that I can set a color reference, e.g. "@color/black", as the background attribute directly. This is working as expected. Using selectors doesn't work.

I can also use the selector as the textColor without problems.

What's the correct way to apply a background-color-selector to a TextView in Android?

Android : Way To Specify Text Color Selector For Click Event?

Jul 22, 2010

I specified a selector drawable for the background of a layout as below, so when user clicks on the layout, the layout will have a different background. But, I didn't specify color selector for the TextViews in the layout, because there are many TextViews with different colors and I am too lazy to define color selector for them. So the text color keeps the same when the layout is clicked. My questions is, is there an automatic way to specify that the text color is highlighted/changed when the layout is clicked, so I don't have to define color selector for each of the TextViews in a layout?

Android :: Implement Color Selector Of TextView When The OnClick Listener Is Set On Its Parent Layout?

Aug 8, 2010

The layout xml is as below. I have a RelativeLayout, which contains a TextView. The OnClick listener is set on RelativeLayout. The RelativeLayout has a selector background. What I want is, when user clicks on the RelativeLayout, the background of the RelativeLayout should change, and the color of the text of the TextView should change too. Even though I set color selector for the TextView, only the selector on RelativeLayout works. The color selector on TextView doesn't work. How can I implement change of both RelativeLayout background and text color of TextView when user clicks the layout?

Android :: Color Gray Resource Icons (especially Microphone)?

Nov 18, 2010

i'm currently developing an application for android. Therefore i want to create a microphone widget, like the one in googles Searchdialog. This icon is filled with white color, like a bargraph, depending on the recorded volume level. I already found the icon (ic_btn_speak_now.png) in the drawable ressources, delivered with the SDK. Unfortunately the icon isn't an simple shape with a transparent area for the microphone shape. Instead it consists of some different gray values. My question now is: How do the google developers (and others, where i've seen it) fill only the microphone shape of the icon with color?

Android : Cannot Retreive Color From Colors.xml Through Custom Resource / Fix?

Sep 4, 2010

I'm going through an Android tutorial and I'm trying to access a color I've defined in colors.xml

<color name = "my_background">#3500ffff</color>

Then I'm trying to access this color by name:

Paint background = new Paint();
background.setColor(getResources().getColor(R.color.my_background));

but it doesn't recognize my_background as a resource. If I let the suggestions come up, only a bunch of pre-defined colors pop up that are unrelated. Any ideas? It doesn't make sense for me, I see almost the exact same thing from the developer documentation and another site, but it doesn't work for me.

Has anyone surpassed this issue ?

My designer wants to trop a shadow behind his icons, and that's where the bands appear.

Android :: Accessing Style Items By Style ID

Nov 15, 2010

Any View have a constructor public View (Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) which called when View declared with a style attribute So, if I have some class inherited from View class, I can access to declared attributes (like "android:layout_width" or "android:background") via AttributeSet attrs in a constructor. But when I move attributes to style I cannot see attributes and values exists in a style - I want to read items declared in style but I have only styleID in defStyle parameter. Is there some way to read style Items using styleID?

Android :: How To Use Resource Within A Custom Xml Resource File?

Aug 3, 2010

I have an XML resource file:
<resources> <section>
<category value="1" resourceId="@xml/categoryData1" />
<category value="2" resourceId="@xml/categoryData2" />
<category value="3" resourceId="@xml/categoryData3" />
</section> </resources>
Using XmlPullParser, on the START_TAG, I can use:
int value = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "value", 0);
to get values 1, 2, 3...however:
int resourceId = parser.getAttributeIntValue(null, "resourceId", 0);
doesn't work...it just yields the default value 0, or whatever I change the default value (3rd parameter) to be. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or if this is possible?

Spinner Style Can't Be Changed To Newer Style?

Jan 8, 2014

I've developed a fairly extensive application. The problem began when I started programming...my spinners are the solid gray rectangular style (unlike the newer style with the triangle in the lower right corner). When I started developing this app several months ago, I couldn't figure out why my spinners were different (after many hours) so I just ignored it. I'm at the point now of polishing my program and want the newer spinner style. So, I'm beating my head against the wall again. I went to my Android SDK Mananger in Eclipse and updated my Android SDK Tools, Platform-tools, and Build-tools. I have the lastest versions of all of these (22.3 and 19.0.1). When I create a new project, the newer spinner style appears. However, none of my older projects changed. They still have the same old gray, rectangular type spinners. I tried using a "android format" line command I found while Googling, but no luck with that either.I'm using ADT Bundle with build v22.2.1-833290 on a Mac OSX Mavericks.

Android :: Style Own Styleable With A Style - Custom View Class With Custom Attribute

Jul 8, 2009

I'm creating my own View class, and defining custom xml attributes with a attrs.xml. As long as I provide each attribute manually, there is no problem, but

code:...................

The android:text is properly set in my instance, but the borderDrawable is not. I guess this has something to do with namespaces, because inside the styles.xml, the name="mypack:borderDrawable" is not handled by the XML parser's namespace facility, because its inside an attribute value. So "mypack" is in no way connected to "http://some.weird.url.com/seems/not/to/ matter" and adding it via xmlns:mypack... to the stylefile would not help, I guess. In the same file, "android:text" is somehow recognized, even though "android" is AFAIK only a ns-defintion for [url], which is also not declared in that file.

So what is the proper way to set a custom attribute in a style?
