Android :: Update - Perform Database Actions

Nov 5, 2010

I don't exactly know how android updates the applications. As far as I've read around here it keeps the SQLite database. So, imagine this scenario: one application that uses SQLite database for persisting data. After a while I release v2 which contains some database changes and I need to update user data in database. How can I make this during the update process ?

Android :: Spinner - How To Do Distinguish User's Actions From Computer's Actions In OnItemSelectedListener

Nov 17, 2010

I'm in a trouble managing a spinner. I have a spinner with its adapter. I initialize the spinner with a list of values when starting my activity. Then I force the selected value to be the one used in the object that I manage.

Once the screen is initialized :
When the user selects a value in the spinner, according to the selected value, I may continue (or not) to another activity for let the user choose a complementary and necessary value.

If the user "cancels" this second activity, I want to rollback the spinner to its previous selected value, and cancel some actions made in the meantime.

If the user goes to the end of the second activity, everything is fine and I want juste to refresh the spinner display with the datas selected in the second activity (I overload the getView method in the adapter to do this).

Overall, I can easily do all of this, however, when I force the selected value in the spinner at the begining of my activity, or whene returning back from the second activity by "Cancel", the change value event is catched and the second activity is triggered (the user did not click anything at all).

How would you allow the second activity to be lauched only if the change of the selected value in the spinner is due to a manual action from the user, and prevent that same second activity to be launched when the value of spinner is changed "in the code "?

I tried many solutions, as setting a boolean into the adapter that tells if the next event will be raised because of an "in the code" action.

Or also putting a boolean in the adapter that tells if the adapter has initialised itself, and I force that boolean to true on the forst change catched event.

Android :: Update - Database That Contains 10 Columns

Feb 25, 2010

I've got a question about updating an app after release. If I have a database that contains 10 columns and I add a feature that requires an 11th column after the app has been released, where would I put the sql code to add the new column so that when they install the app it keeps their current data, but adds that 11th column? Is that even possible or would I need to create another table that references the first with a foreign key?

Android :: Update A Database When Installing / Upgrading An App?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a main application, and a bunch of sub-applications (they are separate apps, which do not appear on the android home dashboard). I was planning on having a SQLite DB which the main app maintains, and get a list of available sub-apps from. Is there a way to update this main database as the user installs the sub-apps?

Two alternative I was thinking of include:

User installs the sub-apps via the main app, which would then update the DB.
Rather than use the DB to find all installed sub-apps, have each sub-app declare a category, and use intents to query for all applications which match that query (is this even possible?

Android : How To Update A Database Used As A Source Of Data By App

Aug 4, 2010

I have an app which uses a large amount of data which has been compiled outside the app (on my main PC). The app is for my personal use so there are no complications with having to distribute data updates to other users. However, I am currently following a very convoluted and time-consuming procedure each time I want to update the data, and I wonder if anyone can suggest any ways to streamline it.

The procedure I follow whenever I want to add new data is as follows:

I enter the new data into a csv file which I maintain as the source of the relevant table in the database. I use SQLite Database Browser to import the data into an existing SQLite database. (This program does not seem to have the ability to append imported data into an existing table, so whenever a table needs updating I have to delete the existing table, then import data from the csv file into a new table, then manually edit the data types for all the fields in the table.)

I drag the icon for the database file onto the 'assets' folder of my project in Eclipse. I export the project from Eclipse as an apk file. I copy the apk file to my phone (using Astro File Manager) I uninstall the old version of the app and install the new apk.
when the app is run, code based on the example set out here copies the data from the 'assets' folder into the app's data folder; this means that each byte of data takes up two bytes in the phone's internal memory; at present this is not a problem, but could be as the volume of data grows; I wonder if there is a more memory-efficient method?

Android :: Listviews Dynamically Update UI Output When Database It's Binded To Changes?

Dec 1, 2009

I have a database that gets updated by a background thread. Is is possible for the UI ouput(using a listview) to change when a database entry is added/deleted? I've seen examples of using SimpleCursorAdapter and listViewAdapters and I'm not sure which to use and if it would even work.

I found an "efficient" listViewAdapter which would work great for me since it doesn't call findViewById often and I can change the data structure to hold exactly what I need, but I don't know how to hook it into my database adapter so it dynamically updates the output when there is a database change. Example: http://www.androidsnippets.org/snippets/125/

Android :: Perform Several Tasks Synchronously?

Sep 24, 2010

I don't know how to elegantly solve the following task:

I have several blocks of code (operation) to execute. Each block can return true of false to indicate that further execution is possible. Inside of each block I have to use asyncronous methods calls (Because Android is completeley asynchronous).

Example of processing operations (not working now as expected):

CODE:.......

The problem is that inside of the operation I need, for example, display AlertDialog and wait for the input. But after I call dialog.show() my method execute finishes and it returns incorrect result.

Example of the button listener, registerd with AlertDialog is below:

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

How should I modify processing of operations to support asynchronous model of Android?

Android :: Perform Haptic Feedback() ?

Sep 28, 2009

I want to invoke the haptic feedback buzz when my ImageButton is pressed, but I am not sure the best way to do it. I first checked that my button was enabled for that, and isHapticFeedbackEnabled() returns true.

Then I am calling performHapticFeedback() with the constant FLAG_IGNORE_GLOBAL_SETTING, as the docs indicate that will be used to override any global settings.

The doc is a little ambiguous, but it does imply that this is something I can call at any time, so I am calling it in the OnClickListener():

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

I appreciate that it would be better to call it when the finger first touches the button rather than on the Click event, but I wanted to get it working to start with, before refining it.

Am I barking completely up the wrong tree, or should the above work when I click on the button, because nothing happens?

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 : Best Way To Perform Live Demo Apps

May 28, 2010

I want to be able to perform live demos of an app I've been working at conferences. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to get a video feed of what's going on onscreen onto a big screen. We've hooked up the screen capture utility of DDMS and keep hitting refresh. Its not ideal. I'm aware that there are more automatic solutions that continuously cause a refresh, but these don't really provide video, and I'd also like an audio feed. I can frame grab within my app pro grammatically, but the Android SDK's video encoder only supports capturing video feed from the camera. Any ideas? What's the best way to live demo Android apps to large audiences?
