Android :: Set Focus On TextView When Activity Starts?

Aug 16, 2010

There are an EditText and a TextView in my Activity. I want to set focus on the TextView when the Activity starts. I used the following code:

TextView myTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.my_text_vew);
myTextView.setFocusable(true);
myTextView.setOnClickListener(this);
myTextView.requestFocus();

But the code doesn't work. The EditText always receives focus when the activity starts.

Android :: How To Find Out When Activity Starts Or Get Focus?

Mar 17, 2010

I would need to know when one activity starts or get's focus. I need this notification for any activity regardless of his type, name or whatever - not searching for one specific activity. Checked the ActivityMonitor and the Intent and I haven't found a generic intent for this purpose. Or I hadn't understood well the descriptions from the Intent ACTION_xxxxx.

Android : How To Ensure View Isn't In Focus When Activity Starts?

Oct 2, 2009

I open an Activity which has a number of elements... some TextViews, some Buttons, and an EditText. For some reason, when the activity starts, the EditText is focused by default, which causes the keypad to appear hiding the screen. I only want this EditText to be in focus if the user clicks into it. How can I ensure that this View isn't in focus when the activity starts? I've tried calling requestFocus() on one of the buttons, but it hasn't changed anything. Ideally, I don't want anything in focus at all.

Android :: TextView Always Loses Focus After Orientation Change / Is This Bug?

Jun 11, 2009

When changing screen orientation while running an Activity that has both a normal layout and a layout-land file defined (both of which contain a TextView), then that view loses its focus after being restored and a warning is issued on the log:

"Previously focused view reported id X during save, but can't be found during restore."

Is this a bug? I looked at the mID field of that view, and it's identical for both the portrait and the landscape layout.

Android :: AppWidget On Homescreen : Focus ImageView / TextView With Trackball?

Feb 6, 2010

I coded an AppWidget the user can add to his homescreen. There are a bunch of images (ImageView) in it that perform different actions like starting Activities on click (realised with PendingIntents). To make it easier to navigate through the AppWidget I'd like to use the trackball (as it works with the SearchWidget or FacebookWidget) but I just can't make it work. Here's my layout code for the AppWidget...

So I want to be able to navigate through a bunch of these "Spots" that are all relativeLayouts. How can I make that work out? I'd be really happy about every hint or idea!

Android :: Activity Starts Remote Service

Oct 8, 2010

My initial activity is basically a splash screen while preforming initialization and login in to network server. To save memory I want to finish() the splash activity once it starts the main menu activity. I still want the remote service to operate. Testing shows it does. But am I going to get into trouble doing this? I know I can restart the remote from the main menu activity but I am trying to save overhead by not starting it twice. The remote service is required by the splash activity.

Android :: Best Way For Service That Starts Activity To Communicate With It

Feb 16, 2010

I have a service that listens to a socket. When receiving certain input it is to create an activity. When receiving other input, it is to kill this activity. I have struggled for a while to make the service communicate with the activity through AIDL (http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/aidl.html), but this seems to not be effective. I think AIDL is only effective when the process that is to be talked to is a service, not when it is an activity? I would love some directions or suggestions on how to solve my problem.

Android :: Soft Keyboard Appears When Activity Starts

Aug 13, 2010

I have an activity which loads a TableLayout. This is made up of TextView and EditView fields. When I run my app within the emulator the layout appears correctly (WITHOUT the soft keyboard appearing). When I run the app from a device (HTC Evo) and enter the activity the soft keyboard ALWAYS appears. I tried doing an OnFocusChange() for the first field in the layout and then doing:

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(tvIndications.getWindowToken(), 0);

It doesn't work. The soft keyboard always appears.

Android :: Show Soft Keyboard When Activity Starts

Mar 17, 2010

I have 2 activities, A and B. When A starts, it checks for a condition and if true, it calls startActivityForResult() to start B. B only takes text input so it makes sense for the soft keyboard to automatically pop up when B start. When the activity starts, the EditText already has focus and it ready for input. The problem is that the keyboard never shows up, even with windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" set in the manifest under the <activity> tag for B. I also tried with the value set to stateVisible. Since it doesn't show up automatically, I have to tap the EditText to make it show.

Android :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Show When Activity Starts

Apr 26, 2010

I have added android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" to my Activity in AndroidManifest.xml and here's my layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText02" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<Button android:id="@+id/Button01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Send"></Button>
</LinearLayout>

When the Activity starts, the EditText is focused, but soft keyboard isn't displayed. If I click on the EditText, then I see the soft keyboard. Do I need to set aditional parameters to display soft keyboard when my Activity starts?

Android :: Widget Starting Service Also Starts Main Activity

This is working fine, however, each time the service is started, my app's main activity is also launched, which I don't want from the app's manifest, it works as I want it to (without launching the main-activity, just the service), but then I obviously don't have a main activity anymore.This is how I start the service (I would assume this is the normal way, and I can't see any reference to what might cause the MAIN intent to fire).

Android :: Update Activity Textview After Changes From Another Activity

Nov 19, 2010

I have an Android activity that, onCreate(), will query a database and display the query results in textviews on the UI.The problem that I am having is at some point, users can open another activity and update the database. When they go back to the original activity, I would like for the text views to update with the new database information (so, I will re query the database and display the info).Another thing that I am willing to do is to take the new input from the user (in the new activity) and directly update the textview in the existing activity (without having the existing activity re-query the database). But I'm not sure how to do something like that either.Can someone please inform me on the best way to go about doing this? The only solution that I have found so far has to do with broadcast receivers, but I'm not sure if that is best suited for what I have to do.

Android :: Pausing VideoView When Launching A New Intent / Resume It To Starts Up Activity Again?

Jul 23, 2009

I have an activity that is showing a video and when the user clicks a button, a new activity is launched. When the video activity stops, I pause the video view. When the video activity starts up again, I try to resume the video view videoView.start(), however, the video starts over from the beginning. I'm thinking that the buffer must be lost somewhere, so I now try to capture the current position via videoView.getCurrentPosition(), however, this is always returning 0.

Anybody know how to resume video playback when an activity starts up again?

Android :: Moving Focus To Top Of Activity - Scrolling

Aug 26, 2009

I have an activity that begins with almost a page of text, then has a few form controls. When the activity launches, the first form control takes focus and the screen scrolls down to make it fully visible. When this happens, the text at the top is off the top edge of the screen. When the screen comes into view, I want the text at the top to be visible. So, onCreate, I tried sending a message to the Activity's overridden handler to do the following:

ScrollView main = (ScrollView) findViewById(R.id.main);
main.pageScroll(ScrollView.FOCUS_UP);
This did nothing. I then tried:
main.scrollTo(0,0); This also did nothing.
I then tried sending the message from onResume instead of onCreate. This also did nothing. How to force the scrollview to actually scroll?

Android :: FinishFromChild And OnActivityResult Not Firing When Child Starts Activity Of Same Type As Parent

Jun 8, 2010

I have an application, which (for the sake of simplicity) has two types of activities - Overview and DetailView. The Overview activity shows a list of steps and allows the user to start a DetailView activity corresponding to the step chosen.

In the DetailView activity, the user can start another Overview, which shows different steps than the ones in the parent of the current DetailView.

In the Overview, DetailView is started by using startActivityForResult (). In the DetailView, when the user decides to start a second Overview, I call setResult () and finish () and then start the new Overview. In this scenario, onActivityResult () and finishFromChild () do not fire. Instead, they fire when the parent finishes (?).

Code from Overview:

Android :: Stop Timer When Activity Loses Focus

Nov 10, 2010

I have a Timer which executes a TimerTask every 30 seconds. I only want the timer to launch a new TimerTask if the Activity is displayed i.e. if the user receives a phone call or launches a new activity the Timer will stop. I then need the Timer to restart when the Activity is re-launched and comes into focus.

Now this should be easy, I override the "onWindowFocusChanged(boolean hasFocus)" method and either start or stop the timer depending on the value of has Focus. The way I start the timer is to create a new Timer object and TimerTask each time and the way I stop the Timer is to call the cancel() method on the Timer object and set timer to null.

My problem is this doesn't always work, if I launch the activity which has the Timer and switch orientations quickly (to start/stop the Activity) I find the Timer is not always canceled and I end up with multiple Timers launching TimerTasks at an ever increasing rate.

Motorola Droid X :: Auto Focus - Click To Focus

Aug 29, 2010

I loved the camera on the Eris and the Incredible, not only did they have a whole lot more of a crisp high-res detail, the auto-focus absolutely rocked. With my droid x, I can be getting a little artsy and focus on an object with the crosshair but it'll take me 20 tries to get it to lock on, its insane, I know I'm not getting too close to my subject because it will definitely eventually focus on that object if I try over and over and over again. It's not just close ups that I find myself and my buddy with this issue either. macro shooting mode does not help. My buddie's droid X has the same exact behaviors. Eris and incredible just LOCKED ON first try with even very low contrast / detail subjects, on top of that, have a ton better camera GUI when it comes to "click to focus". I know this thing ain't no SLR but, blows me away of how terrible the camera performance is vs. the HTC android based devices. Ihink motorola will fix this? I know this thing ain't no SLR but it just blows me away how the HTC android devices camera performance (except for video) blows the Droid X away.
