Android :: Supplying Action / Data Where Filter Had Only Action

Oct 31, 2010

I thought that Action was preeminent during intent resolution and if the intent had the same action as the intent filter, it would be considered a match regardless of data, if the filter did not specify anything. So I was very surprised to find that supplying action+data where filter had only action, causes it to fail. In the code below, if you comment out line 47 so that data is *not* sent, only then it resolves correctly. To get it to work with the data (an id that is simply a String), what mime type should I specify in the intent filter?

Android :: Creating Intent With Action / Any Way To Filter Results

Jul 20, 2010

When creating an intent with action send to send some data, is there a way to filter the results that are included in the activity chooser that is created using Intent.createChooser? I have not seen a way to do this other than setting the mime type, but it is not flexible enough.

For example, there is a situation when I want e-mail apps to be the only results in the activity chooser dialog. Setting the type to "text/ html" successfully filters this down to email apps, except when bluetooth is enabled. Bluetooth appears in the list as well, but this is not desirable. Surely there is a way to have a little more control over the results?

Android :: Catching An Action Without Setting An Intent Filter?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm trying to catch an action like ACTION_HEADSET_PLUG. But I think it might be too much to set this action on the manifest file.

How could I register a listener for this action? I only need to care about it when my application is running not all the time as I think it would happen when registering it under the manifest file...

Android :: Implementing Action Bar

Jun 24, 2010

I am working on creating an Action Bar like the one from the new Android UI Patterns and I am running into a bit of trouble. I have a ViewSwitcher with two layouts in it. When the user taps the search button I animate between the two layouts. The problem is that the layouts are different sizes and I can't figure out how to make them take up the same amount of space. Here's what I mean. p.s. forgive the bad art, they are just place holders ;)

Android :: How To Preform An Action After A Brief Pause

Nov 22, 2010

I have an app that crops faces - something the app can do in a nanosecond, but I want the user to think it takes a bit longer. So in a case on a button click.

Here is what I have:


The dialog shows fine, and the faces crop fine too. The problem is - when the user runs the app, the 2 happen simultaneously on the screen.

Is there a way to make it so the dialog appears, 3 seconds elapse on screen and then the cropFaces is run? That way it will look like it cropped the faces in a few seconds, and then the new page appears.

Android :: No Applications Can Perform This Action Error

Feb 15, 2009

I am using this code to send an email (with no errors in eclipse), but when I run it in the emulator, I get the "No applications can perform this action." error.String[] mailto = {prefemail}; // Create a new Intent to send messages Intent sendIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND); //Write the body of the Email String emailBody = ""; // Add attributes to the intent sendIntent.setType("message/rfc822"); endIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, mailto); sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "TrackMe Password"); sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, emailBody); startActivity(Intent.createChooser(sendIntent, "Email sent.")); Do I need to install some mail app from it? I tried the K9 email app, installed it with adb, but I don't see any changes. Do I need to do something other than installing? Or is there another good program for it?

Android :: Intent.action.TIME TICK

Apr 1, 2009

I'm trying to get an application / reciever / anything that can perform a task once every minute. I'm trying to use the intent-filter "android.intent.action.TIME_TICK" which, in theory, sends an Intent message every minute.

Does anyone have any code that uses the android.intent.action.TIME_TICK intent? I can't seem to get it to send the intent to my application and I can't find anything much on the internet. Has anyone used it successfully?

I have a manifest.xml as below.

General :: Can Android Modifier Key Fallback On Action?

Oct 23, 2012

I'm working on an input device that has a button that I'd like to act both as a home button when pressed by itself, but also work as a modifier for the other buttons on the device. I know you can do this in the kcm file with other buttons, and have something like:

key ESCAPE {
base: fallback BACK
alt, meta: fallback HOME
ctrl: fallback MENU

Is it possible to have something like:

base: fallback HOME

So that I can press that button with another button and have it not fallback on HOME?
