So, when I pass the current context to the method and trying to copy it in a local variable , I am getting this error saying that the variable should be declared as final.

My method is like this:

Android :: Cannot Make Static Reference To Anon-static Method

Feb 7, 2010

I'm having some issues with the old "Cannot make a static reference to a non-static method" error in my Android program. I am creating a sand falling game (similar to the Powder Game) and I created a class called Control to create a Control Bar at the bottom of the screen with a slider for brush size (that works fine) and a button to pop up a Dialog to allow users to pick the selected element. However, when I call DemoActivity.showDialog(2) from my code, it gives the static reference to non-static error (DemoActivity is the main activity of my application). I also tried changing it to just Activity.showDialog(2), but I got exactly the same error!

Here's my code:

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

I fixed it by adding the following to my Control.java code:

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

And then calling control.setActivity(this); from my onResume section of DemoActivity.java!

Android :: Calling A Non-static Java Method From C

Dec 22, 2009

In my Android app, I need to call a non static java method from C/C++. But i get a blunt crash when i do it using GetMethodID/CallVoidMethod()1 methods.

I have done like this:

1. Register the method using GetMethodID() as follows (mine is a cpp file): jmethodID xyz = (env)->GetMethodID( cls, "showxyz", "()V");

2. And I call this method as follows: env->CallVoidMethod(cls, xyz);

3. In java, my showxyz() is defined this way(this basically enables a button which was disabled) void showxyz() {findViewById(R.id.btnPass).setEnabled(true);}

And this crashes.

But I have been using this method of calling Java funcs from C using a set of GetStaticMethodID/CallStaticVoidMethod()(for nonstatic methods) and that works always.

But in this case, I have to call a non-static method and i get a crash.

Android :: Use Static CreateBitmap Method?

My application crashes after I try to use the static Bitmap createBitmap method to get a mutable bitmap in order to fill it later with data.

If I only create one 1024x1024 the application works just fine, but when I try to load the same image more than once (first making my object null in each round) my application crashes on my third or fourth try.

Android :: Get An Application Context Into A Static Method

May 7, 2010

I'm working on an Android application that has several Activities. In it I have a class with several static methods. I would like to be able to call these methods from the different Activities. I'm using the static methods to load data from an xml file via a XmlResourceParser. To create a XmlResourceParser requires a call on the Application Context. So my question is, what is the best way to get a reference to the Application Context into the static methods? Have each Activity get it and pass it in? Store it somehow in a global variable?

Android :: How To Access Preferences In Static Method

Aug 21, 2010

I have a broadcast receiver that needs to notify a service that it has received a text message. The only way to do this (as far as I know) is a static method. But the method that is notified need access to the application's preferences.

Every method I have tried says that it cannot be accessed from a static method. So how do I access preferences from a static method?

Android :: GetString(R.string In Static Method

Sep 29, 2010

When programming for Android sometimes you have to use static methods. But when you try to acces you resources in a static method with getString(R.string.text) you'll get an error. Making it static doesn't works. Does anyone knows a good way around this because the resource files in Android are very helpfull for creating things in different languages or making changes to a text.

Android :: Every Second HttpsUrlConnection Request Of My Static Method Fails

Nov 24, 2010

I'm having a big issue with a static HTTPS connection method. Every second request fails and HttpsUrlConnection.getResponseCode() returns -1. So every second call works well, returning data as expected.

It's the method of a static class I'm using in different corners of my application. I would guess there is anything I don't clean up correctly when the method returns the first time and that whatever causes a problem might get destroyed through a second call of the method. But I'm having a hard time finding any clues.

I'm currently using this class to talk to hosts with invalid SSL certificates. Not going to use this in the final version of the app, but right now I need to save money. ;)

Android :: Call Non Static Method (Located In Main Class) From Different One

Oct 18, 2010

I've been trying to call a non-static method, located in my main application Class, from the Preferences Class. Because the method I call is not static, I instantiate the main class and then try to call the specific method I want but it's force closing.

Preferences.class (from where I call the method):
Preference sorted = (Preference) findPreference("sortPref");
sorted.setOnPreferenceChangeListener(new Preference.OnPreferenceChangeListener() {
public boolean onPreferenceChange(Preference preference, Object newValue) {
Object d = new Dmarks();
((Dmarks) d).queryBookmarks();
return true;
}});
the Dmarks.class method I call:
public void queryBookmarks() {
Toast.makeText(context, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
//context is not null and the Toast is working if I call it from Dmarks.class }

The Logcat:

Android :: Static Method Calls To Derived Types Over Virtual Implementations?

Jul 8, 2010

I have class A, with methods foo and bar, that are implemented by A1 and A2. The functionality in both A1 and A2 is the same. In other words:
public class A {
public int foo() { return 0; };
public int bar() { return 1; };
} class A1 extends A {
public int AnotherFooFunction() { return foo();
} public int AnotherBarFunction() { return bar();
} } class A2 extends A {
public int AnotherFooFunction() { return foo();
} public int AnotherBarFunction() { return bar();
} }

Is it better to keep the code in this fashion, or to swap out those virtual methods as static methods? (In Java, everything non-final/non-private is considered virtual, right?) According to the Designing for Performance section in the Android Developer Docs, I should swap out these virtual methods for static ones. So the above becomes:
public class A {
public int foo() { return 0; };
public int bar() { return 1; };
} class A1 extends A {
public int AnotherFooFunction() { return A.foo();
} public int AnotherBarFunction() { return A.bar();
} class A2 extends A {
public int AnotherFooFunction() { return A.foo();
} public int AnotherBarFunction() { return A.bar();
} }

Is this how it "ought" to be? I fully realize that I may be misinterpreting this paragraph in the docs.

Android :: Android - Safe To Create Static Method To Return Application Instance?

Sep 3, 2010

I am thinking to create a static method to return a reference to the application instance. I am not sure if it is safe to assume there is only one instance of the Application in one application. Apparently, the Application class in Android SDK doesn't provide such method to return the instance reference. So I suspect there must be a reason?

Android :: Activity Lifecycle And Static Variables

Jul 14, 2009

I just ran into a situation where it looks like a static variable reference is persisted across activity sessions. I didn't expect that because I thought that when an activity exits, it's de-referenced and garbage collected. I am wondering if anyone can shed some (more) light on when the VM eliminates object references for Activities and Services and in particular when static variables get reset to default values?

Android :: All Staticís Variables Retaining Values When Launching Again

Dec 1, 2009

I have been facing problems to manage statics variables used in my android application. If we exit the application against a particular event (touch or key event -which is must for my app), all the statics variables are retaining the values when I am launching it again. I am invoking Activity.finish() method for termination . I know there is a collection type class available called Bundle and we can use it to save the states of all the statics and get those back when again creating the same activity during relaunch, but it would be a hard task if we want to port some j2me applications to Android because of having thousands of statics variables. Is there any way to kill the application completely including all the statics variable used there?

I tried with System.exit(0) and it works well for Android G1 and G2 (tested in firmware 1.6). But in Android Robyn (prototype) the same causes a major defect ("Activity not responding" popup apears just after exit) and I came to know from android dev forum that calling System.exit(0) is not recommended for termination of an activity.

Android :: Parsing XML And Initializing Static Variables Of Some Class

Dec 21, 2009

I have an application that is driven by a configuration XML: various app properties are loaded at the app start-time by parsing the XML and initializing static variables of some class. The data read from this XML drives different Activities of the application. Presently, I have called the "parsing and the properties-initialization" from the onCreate() of my Main Activity. I have a few questions as regards this case/approach: Should I invoke the app initialization method from the Application Object or is the current approach correct?

What advantages/disadvantages do/would we get/have if I choose to invoke it from the Application object? Do we really need a static class to store app properties? Or can we have all the properties as a static Collection variable in the application object? Parsing a XML(~200 nodes) at app load time might take some time (not sure how long tho); How can I avoid the dreaded ANRs? I am using a Pull Parser.

Replace Single Row View In Custom STATIC ListView - STATIC Data

Mar 18, 2013

I have Eclipse Juno and I'm working on an app with that.

The main activity will have a scrollable menu that takes you to all the other activities.

So the general structure/outline right now:[HIGH]Relative Layout ImageView (header logo type thing) ListView (the actual scrollable menu)[/HIGH]Here's the problem though... I can't find any simple list tutorials. I can easily make a single line list work but I need to make a two line list and one that is static, not dynamic and no examples are out there for that. It's like if you want to make a 2 line list, you can only learn how to do it in the most code-heavy ridiculous way possible.

Essentially what I am looking for with the list is this: Item one: Centred, bold, non selectable title (Resources)

- Item two-??: two line list items, click-able to a new activity, title of the section on first line, description on the second line.

- Item ??: Centred, bold, non selectable title (Tools)

- Item ??-??: two line list items, click-able to a new activity, title of the section on first line, description on the second line.

Nothing dynamic that is ever going to change, no super complex wonkey calculations, just to simply have the data set in stone (preferably via XML) and to call it into the list.

I experimented with some of the other list views and no matter what I did, I could get, via editing the resources and NOT using Java, more that one item on a single line but it wouldn't format it properly according to the layout I guess because I haven't got the ID correct or whatever I don't know.

I mean, all the examples I've seen for a 2 line list are extraordinarily over-coded and just bloated. I mean I have a website I am still working on in C#/ASP.net that has far more complex things in it with half the code that I've seen for the examples of the two line lists.

I tried on my own to figure it out (I am decent with C# and vaguely familiar with Java, self taught, and programming for some other systems like Python, again all self-taught), but like ALL coding references, they're organised by the actual code you implement (that you don't know) instead of by what you want it to do (so you have to search the whole code base to find something that you don't know what it's called but know what it does). >:C

Android :: Static Vs Non-static Inner Classes

Mar 9, 2009

I have been finding it convenient to extend Handler in many of my activities to handle messages specific to the activity. The handler sublass is an inner class of the activity and needs to access its state. I am wondering if there is any performance difference between making the handler subclass static and passing in the activity explicitly in its constructor or making the subclass an "instance class" and letting the vm worry about my accessing members of the containing activity.

The static approach:
